Hello Team,

Thanks for releasing the Google Maps for iPhone.

I installed it today morning on my iPhone 4 (iOS v5.1.1 9B206) but the voice guided turn-by-turn driving directions is not working as expected. It only beeps 500 ft before the next turn but not really guiding for the next turn.

Not sure if it is a setting that has to be modified in my phone or is a bug. Are there any other users in the same boat as mine?

Can anyone from the team let me know what I need to do for it.

Thanks,
Uresh

Why, why, why is this not available for the iPad?  What a disappointment that you'd overlook such a large customer base!!! What are your plans and timeline to make it available????
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone ehg 12/13/12 11:26 AM
according this page it is available for iOS devices.
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone B-boop 12/13/12 1:09 PM
 

Supported versions and devices

Google Maps for iOS can be used on the iPhone 3G S or higher and requires at least iOS version 5.1. It can also be used on 4th Generation iPods with iOS 5.1+. iPads are currently only supported in iPhone compatibility mode.

 

What does this mean?

Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone ehg 12/13/12 1:30 PM

Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Larry Lees 12/13/12 7:30 PM
Ok so I drive to places and take pictures every day, today I went to three places 1 of which Google maps was off by 7 miles finally had to use the GPS in my Acura to find the address 7 miles from where Google Maps had pin pointed it. Hopefully this was a fluke and it won`t happen often. Next I decided to go into the NEW Google Maps App on my Iphone to pull up the map I created on my PC on My Account on Google Maps but what there is no link to it on my NEW Google Maps App, but wait oh yes there is an app for only 99 cents that will access your Google Maps My Places that seemed awesome so I got it, now I open the My Places for Google Maps App on my Iphone  I can see my maps open them in the NEW Google Maps App on my Iphone but when it opens it will not give me turn by turn instructions with voice just text only another short coming in the Google Maps on the Iphone saga!!!

Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Augurae 12/14/12 5:00 AM
I didn't know where to put feedback so...

The Google app is far superior to Apple's:

BUT, there are few glitches
1. The map is less precise or complete that the pre iOS 6 version: street directions, street numbers, the name of some places etc...are not displayed.
2.
 It is less fluid: lot's of names of streets/places don't appear unless you zoom hard, and when you do the map displayed doesn't really make sense. It also take time to search, load maps, or places.
3. The UI doesn't make that much sens and isn't that intuitive: it takes many step to go to street view and back to the map, when you click on a place it loads the adress but there is no visible pin, when you click a pin for information it make the lower tab bounce instead of bringing it up (while still showing the map, as I discovered it is possible)
4. Street view is flawed: the fish eye effect is too much accentuated, you don't see the yellow street lines, it's not easy to go back on the map or previous menu.
5. This one is not a glitch but I consider it a big flaw that would make the map ultimate: Maps wants to do everything online, instead of focusing on loading the map faster or FINALLY just cashing the damn map since you'll probably use it in the same area/city 90% of the time.

This being said, this is still a great and a big kick in Apple's teeth and their so called UI/UX/innovation mastercraft...

Found incorrect spelling on Irvine Blvd. It is spelled Irvine Bivd when navigating from Newport Beach, CA to Meadowood Park in Irvine CA.You might want to fix it.
Re: Google Maps for iPhone - correction Dr. Kazim Altaf 12/15/12 4:07 PM
Hi,

Hotel shown; Pearl Continental, is not on the stream. The actual position about 2 km from this location is already shown on your map so please just remove this site in stream from the map. It is in Rawalpindi (Pakistan).

Thanks,

Dr Kazim Altaf

Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Samuel Samy 12/16/12 3:29 AM
Dears,
Thanks for your effort to launch Google Maps for iPhone OS,
So i need your help because i cant find Google Maps in Egyptian store,
Many thanks for your kind reply....
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone ehg 12/16/12 4:36 AM
@Samuel Samy:

I already told you in your other thread Egypt isn't yet in the list of countries where GMaps is released for.
Therefore you can't find it. Stay tuned on the  list of countries where GMaps is released. I'm pretty sure the list will updated in future.
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Samuel Samy 12/16/12 11:59 AM

In your announcement, it would be helpful if you would link to the how-to page(s) for each respective feature.
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Vishal Tummala 12/18/12 7:21 AM
Please develop a Google Maps application for the iPad, as well!!

Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone AxelSanFrancisco 12/18/12 9:02 AM
It's a great app. Thanks for pushing this out to the market.

However, it has a significant design issue in using an in-app-browser. Please reconsider taking this out of the application. More in my post "Design issue: Kids can watch Pornography over Google Maps for iPhone app"

I have postponed updating my iPhone to iOS6 because I wanted to wait for Google Maps to become available... Now it is available and I updated to iOS6 only to find out that Google Maps is not available in the Indonesian store. Big disappointment.

Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Holman Mesa 12/24/12 8:46 AM

Greetings from Colombia
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Matthew Fopalan 12/28/12 7:23 AM
To all users who wants the app to be available in their area/country:

The Google Maps app is available to some countries only. Not all countries can receive the app. Try visiting the website of Google Maps on your iOS device on Safari or the Google Chrome app for now until the app is available in your area. Or if you have a US account, you can download the app immediately for free.

Can't find Google Maps App in Saudi Arabians Apple Store, why??? 😡
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Sami Awadh 12/30/12 8:51 AM
When? We need a promise and target date.
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone ehg 12/30/12 9:16 AM
maybe you need it but you will not get such date.
Google never let know in advance any such dates.
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Campbell T 1/3/13 2:41 PM
Quick question that may have a painfully obvious answer:  Where is the recent search history for addresses and locations?  Used to be very obvious in the old iOS Gmaps but all I can see now are whatever "favorites" I mark as such. 
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Eda Y. 1/30/13 8:08 PM
I can't understand why we need to wait for the release for different countries. The version which iPhone 6 discarded was already good enough. I don't need some fancy app in my local language I just want some accurate map when I need it. I've been postponing my IOS 6 update since the release to not to lose my google maps but now with the updates for IOS 6 of various apps I'm having some problems. I think there are many users with this problem besides me. Please release the Google maps app for Turkish Appstore (and for other countries) ASAP you can make it perfect later with some update! 
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Redogski 2/1/13 4:52 AM
I have the same issue here. We want google maps app for turkish app store in ios.

Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Ray Waters 5/14/13 8:09 AM
I am having a difficult time with my google maps on my iPhone. I got it a month or so ago. It worked fine for a week but now it says it CANNOT REACH SERVER. I have sent messages on my phone to google but have received no help. Can anyone tell me what is going on? I deleted and reinstalled the app but nothing has changed. It still says -- CNNOT REACH SERVER.
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Rebecca41 5/17/13 5:48 PM
I have the same problem!
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Ray Waters 5/17/13 7:47 PM
So Rebecca41, what do you think we should do? 
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone John Texas 6/18/13 12:50 PM
Did you or Ray ever get an answer?..Been having the same problem for a while...I have heard that there is new map software with the new OS coming out this fall..thanks for your time..:)
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Rebecca41 6/18/13 1:40 PM
I got it working somehow. I may have had an operating system upgrade? One thing I know I did - I deleted the app completely and re-downloaded it (perhaps after an OS upgrade). Anyway, it works! So keep at it!
Re: Google Maps now available for iPhone Ray Waters 6/18/13 3:49 PM
I did finally get it working. I did what you did. I deleted it and re installed and for some reason it worked fine.
