This new interface is awful. Unable to change route options like tools during navigation. Have to stop the route and recreate it entirely.

No more phone menu button, use this tab that looks like a screen glitch partially and accidentally copied off.

Entering and address I'd confusing, it's life they want to throw in the towel to Apple.

Just reinstall the old one if you don't like the new one.

It sucks but the moe I use it the more accustomed I get. Like the old one better

Any chance it looks like it might be related to them wanting to drop Android in favor of a ChromeOS type interface?

Navigation has completely gone from my S3. I've had to uninstall the updates to get it back

On ICE?

You can uninstall the "Maps" update from the Play store to get the old nav app back. Just know that if you have auto updating enabled, it will update back at the earliest point.

The new app is really, really bad IMO.

Just go to apps in your settings, and uninstall updates for the google maps. The regular navigation will come back.

I had the same issue.

I quit using goog last year when I discovered I not spec a hybrid surface-interstate route, nor override construction zone bypasses.

No biggie, I never go anyplace other than work, shopping or the GF's.

I did want to dox some bike rides, but the gps tracks i generated did not seem very portable to other platforms or apps.

I think a lot of these capabilities are still more toy-like than tool like.

It pretty much blows.

I went to use it last week and was wondering why it looked and functioned like shit.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks its terrible - what the hell were they thinking?

Three or four months ago Google Earth went buggy on my Win7 machine. The street view went T/U.

I uninstalled it but there was still a folder left so I drug it to the trash.

There were 3,000,000 + files in the thing. Took a couple of hours to delete them all. IIRC they were the graphic files of the places I'd been.

Google is de debil.

CIA app meant for tracking your every move. Obama and michelle sit in the oval office in front of a vast array of flat screens and watch as you go get beer and ammo. Then they put a check mark next to your name in the "drone" box.

I'm looking at Waze now on my phone - what is the deal with it using your social contacts though?

I really could care less about my facebook friends knowing my road habits.

You can turn all that off, if you'd like.
