Dear maps, I have an idea for you to make your services better for people. Google developers can do an additional work to make maps more powerful and convenient. It may be happen if you show city road's crossings's like tiraha(hindi word) and chohraha(hindi word) direction showing arrows situated by local traffic police. It will be better because i found many people wo wants to know that when they arrived little close to destination, they need direction arrows for perfection.

i born in bangalore I m very familiar about the bangalore areas. Because I am driver .since 8 years I have being driving I now many routes in bangalore .before this map is not good that much. But now everyone they are using navigation like 60% people thy following the navigation. So I recommending to you all follow the navigation and save the time fuel and believe me you can avoid lots of traffic. Again I'm requesting you to .I

maps are good and useful. but we have to update it every month. otherwise it will expire. that's ok.. . acceptable. but if we are adding one more offline map then the all other offline maps added 1 day before also is updating without asking our permission. We cannot add a single map individually. it will empty your mobile data. it is not at all acceptable. These Google people are turned into thiefs.

I rely on it to help me locate anywhere new I haven't been to yet. It's amazing & Google Girl talks you to the doorstep of your destination...and if you miss a turn, etc. she readjusts her directions and gets you back on track. Want to find a new restaurant or other business...just ask Google Girl...she knows all the places of interests...I wouldn't leave home without her.

Lately I haven't been able to use the app. It will freeze and the arrow won't move. It keeps saying gps signal lost then rerouting me a totally different way. The voice doesn't speak so I have to look at the directions list to figure out where I'm going. Kinda hard to do when you're driving and have no clue on where you're at. Very dissatisfied with

Google Maps has become totally useless! It takes longest routes, it freezes the phone, once you put the destination it takes longer time as it says it is choosing the best routes but that isn't true. Sometimes while on the route it cuts off and I have to put again the address and restart the trip. It used to be very good but now it is so usel8that I am now forced to use waze which nowadays is far better and reliable!

Please don't assume I forgot to set a work address and you need to badger me from now until the end of time to set one. I finally set one to the entire country of Ireland just to stop that, and now its helpfully suggesting that I download an offline map of Ireland. This is a great app except when it assumes it needs to "help" me. Stop trying to help me!!!

Provide selection for avoiding narrow lanes / roads under route options in order to not to get stuck in narrow lanes with big vehicles. Me suffered. Personal experience. Also provide manual saving of required local places on move while in navigation mode which will be of great use. Using Galaxy S7 Edge. Regards.

Keeps asking for my work location no matter how many times I say that I don't want to enter it. Also keeps asking for my input about everything, even if I uncheck all the notifications in the settings! Isn't that the purpose of having a beta version, to get input from the end user to improve the stable version of the app?
A 3
While I am a fan of the features, over the past year or so Maps has become overly bloated and does not run well. It sometimes takes more than a minute to startup before it is usable, freezing my whole phone in the process. This is more than an annoyance; it takes away from the whole Google experience.
Graham 4
Being able to favourite a current location when offline AND have multiple locations for work and home (temporary ones for when on holiday would be even better) are some features that this could use. Walking instructions for the intermediary parts of the public transport directions would appear to be an obvious improvement.
