I use it almost everyday and I love updating the map that’s adding new places that does not exist on the map, making amendment to the existing ones and adding images. My concern is that some approvals takes a very long time and I will like to know why that’s the case because after adding a new place I will need it to be approved before adding the pictures I took of the place. When this takes a very long time I end up losing trace of the pictures I took to be updated on the map. I will also like to suggest if a search can be included in the edit area to help go through the items there quickly. I hope my concerns raised will be attended to thank you!
By far the best
I tried to like Apple maps. I truly do enjoy the simplicity and the ability to just tell Siri where I want to go. It’s also nice to be able to lock your phone and see updates from the screen saving at least some battery life.
However Apple maps is months-years out of date. This is where google really shines is they are quick on updating things as roads change and I’ve never had a wrong address. Only wish you could use Siri and get directions on this by default.
Why Oh Why Did I Update?!
Before the previous update my Google Maps ran perfectly. Then the update came and I thought “OK. Improvements on something that that works perfectly fine. Maybe it could be better. After all, we could all use improvements in our lives.” Well, I was wrong!!! I travel a lot and the updates are a pain in the *#%! It shows that I am in the middle of somewhere I am not. It takes forever to figure out where I am at. Comes up in a language I don’t speak. And is late giving me real time info. Seriously, I really need to stick to “If it ain’t broke….” But that red marker on my apps tab was getting on my nerves. I am going to reign in my OCD and ignore the new updates *%#¥ from now on.
