    I disagree strongly with your first tip. I would never put my home address in my contacts or provide it to Google maps. If your phone is stolen, it gives thieves a direct path to your home. Think about it. Someone might note your Rolex watch or your high end Lamborghini then steal your iPhone to learn where to come get them.

    Instead, put a nearby public location, such as a store, restaurant, shopping center, etc. You will always be able to get home from that location and you will not give away information that should be protected.

    I have made an important change to a road designation but it seems that Google takes months to make the change while people are getting lost without cell service in the area. Losing business here GOOGLE.......people are getting LOST.

    I would like to have Google Maps route a shopping trip for me. First I saved all of the places I want to shop for the day in "Places I want to Go". It would be nice if Google could combine the store hours with the traffic and determine where I should go first and then when I hop in the car for the next store, Google would provide directions to the next store to make most efficient use of my time.

    My favorite feature is when the arrow points exactly at the opposite direction of where I'm supposed to go. Very helpful.

    I don't know it the ADD STOP function is new but that option is in the 3-dot menu.
  • Danny Compton
    Needs a pause button. I don't want to add in a pit stop while driving for gas if I'm going to pull off. That way I can pull off.... pause it at the gas station and my phone does not bark directions when I walking around a convenient store.

    The best feature Ive been using so far is the TRAFFIC feature. Its much better and MORE ACCURATE than WAZE.

    ??how i can save root map offline
  • Redeemed52597
    Actually, a warning regarding point #1: Don't save your exact home or work address on your phone. If someone happens to run off with your keys and phone (probably what happens a lot on beaches) the thief not only has your phone, but also knows where the house (or the business) for the keys he has just stolen as well. I use an address near to where I work and live, but not the exact address.
  • newsveteran
    Find a better way to demo the maps app. Your screen shots are terrible and hard to read. Also tone yourself down a little and let's see less of you and more demos. Cut the "fry speak" also.

    Zooming with one hand is the coolest one for me. Thanks for the tip!!!

    Come on, who needs to navigate to their fave restaurants or home or friend's house. I want to be able to route myself on long road trips by adding several stops...Hotels, sites I'd like to visit. Can't do that in Google maps.
    I would like to make it in Japanese ♪

    Guess I need a smart phone
  • rha600
    who the hell needs google maps to navigate to their favorite place?   If it's your favorite and you don't know how to get there, you're too old to be driving anyway.

  • Cliff Carlo
    Never put your home address in my places when using google maps. Instead pick a place near your home like the local pub or shop. If a thief were to steel your phone he could use you phone to navigate straight to your house. He already knows that you are out.
