What do you dislike?

is an excellent application, I have not found anything negative in it, it's free, the only inconvenience that could arise, is that it works only with internet, only so you can access this application and download the maps easily.

"Simply great"

What do you like best?

Google maps is simply great offers many advantages that allow you in your day to day to solve some really annoying problem. This application is literally a world map on your computer or mobile that has images of these maps so that you can move them at your convenience. It also allows you to visualize, through satellite images, the different places in the world as well as the route between place and place. that allows you to always be located.

What do you dislike?

It necessarily requires an internet connection and this could be a very relevant disadvantage because although it does not indicate something really bad about the application itself, the truth is that it says a lot about the real usefulness of this because there are places where there is simply no signal absolutely nothing is to say there is no internet coverage and they are in such remote places where you would most need an application like that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend them to you all in many places and at all times as it helps your total location in an incredibly fast way just by looking at the screen of your mobile phone, it is an application that leaves us all satisfied.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At the time of leaving to do a job or take the accounting documents that I need to deliver, google maps has allowed me (when I do not know a location well) to find all the places that have been set for this meeting, this greatly facilitates Many details about my career because it allows me to save a lot of time when going out on the street this is a great benefit that is given to me as well as to my clients.

"A really functional application"

What do you like best?

It is one of the largest applications because its usefulness is really true, it gives you more advantages than you might think at first, it is easy to use and you can use it both on computers and on your mobile phone. The photographs that are shown in this application are completely true and these are generally updated, said photographs are taken through satellites allowing you to also know the time it will take you to reach the places you indicate.

What do you dislike?

This application has helped me a lot, I'm very fond of it because it's one of those programs that are really functional and are a totally true help for your day to day life. So far I have not had any kind of mishap with it but the only thing that I think may be a disadvantage is that it has the complete need to be connected to an internet signal in order to have visualization of the maps so if you are in a place With little or no signal you can not have the privileges that this program gives you.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is no need to spend money on GPS because google maps is the best option to always be located, I recommend it to all, its use is very easy, you do not even have the complete need to have a user so there can be no mistake.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my life, the maps that google maps show me have been very important and useful because if at any time I do not know where to find an address, I do not have to waste time asking for directions. I only use my mobile phone at a glance and I will be completely aware and located on the site to which I am addressing.

En algunas ocasiones los mapas son descargados de manera incompleta y no proporciona la información ideal que necesito, ya que los mapas aparecen de manera desactualizada y tampoco muestra las zonas de riesgo.

"Locate with the best map application"

What do you like best?

Google maps is perhaps the best application of maps that exists, it is so easy to use and offers multiple tools, to make its use something more adapted to your needs, it allows you to zoom in or out of the specific map area that you want to see , not only indicates the location of the sites but also the routes through which to reach that destination, depending on the means of transport you are going to use, besides that also provides us with additional information about the site that we are looking for in the map, in my particular case I think Google Maps is in my top 5 applications that I use the most, I constantly have to be in motion from one place to another, and not every time I know where it is or how to get there, and it's there when I go to Mr. Google Maps. I can access it from my tablet. cell phone or from my computer, so thank you Google for creating one of my favorite applications.

What do you dislike?

I think the only thing I could say that I dislike this application is that not every time I'm in areas with good access to the Internet and so I'm excluded from the use of this application, the rest I have nothing more negative to say about This application, for me is very complete and is very useful and easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In short, people could not choose a better application of maps, it is very complete, it is kept up to date, easy to use, it offers multiple tools for a better experience in its use, you can use it from any mobile device and it works for any field of work , so yes, I recommend without any doubt the use of google maps.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This application has made my work life somewhat easier, every time I have to go to a site to find a news item, write an article or simply do an interview with someone and I'm not sure where the place is located, I just put the address in Google Maps and it tells me where it is and how to get there.

"Best Maps App!"

What do you like best?

Honestly, no other maps app has anything on Google Maps! I am an iphone user and lover, but the iPhone map app is trash! I have been on trips with people who use the apple maps app and then were misled, while Google maps app was correct! I love that if I search something on the desktop, it saves and that when I go to search the same address on my phone app, it is there!

What do you dislike?

Honestly, I can't think of anything that I dislike about Google Maps. It is a very intuitive app. The live traffic feature is very helpful, but sometimes it is not updated as often as it should be. Love it!

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is not Waze so do not expect a large community of users to advise. Also, Google Maps is not going to let you know if there are police officers in the area. I recommend bookmarking places you visit often so they are easier to locate and search when traveling. For example, establish where "Home" and "work" are. This is helpful when planning ahead. If you know from where you will be traveling (home or work) Google maps can help you determine the details of your trip.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We don't use Google Maps that often in our business, but we have had to use them in the past when giving directions to visitors and potential donors. We also use Google maps when we draft maps of exit routes from the building.

"Google maps, without a doubt the best location program worldwide."

What do you like best?

The best thing about google maps is that it allows you to place the company on the map in a literal way, in addition to giving customers the ability to rate their experience in our facilities, besides being super practical as it allows you to choose a destination and leaving from an initial position which is marked on the map directly suggests several routes, also analyzing if you are in car, bicycle or walking. Another of its great advantages is that it informs you of the routes of public transport and at all times it keeps you informed of your precise location if you have GPS.

What do you dislike?

One of the few things I do not like about google maps is that if you use it from the mobile it becomes a bit slow, even if the data connection is good, I think you should better compress the maps for mobile versions. But in general lines is an excellent program the best of its kind without doubts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Is a program that I recommend with your eyes closed, has the backing of a giant company like google, what else can I say the amount of benefits it provides with respect to its low cost make it the best application in their field.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The best thing that Google Maps has done for our company is to be able to position ourselves on the map, so that customers know where we are located and also qualify qualitatively as well as quantitatively the performance of our employees and know what aspects we should improve when it comes to lending the best customer service

"It's excellent service, thanks google for that."

What do you like best?

is an application with many advantages, can be used on computer and cell phone, no need to have an account or access to gmail to use it, on the google page with any browser is available, the images are all real and updated, too You can see satellite, it also shows me the rough access to any place you indicate in the search engine, it is very easy to use.

What do you dislike?

With this application, I have done very well, I have never had any setbacks. but the limitation that it has is that it must be used with the internet to access the maps. If you are in a place with little signal and you need to look for an address, this will be impossible because you can not load the image well, since it is very heavy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

for my google maps it has been very useful, since I use it I have not had to worry about not knowing the address of some place, since I can get to where I want in a short time, thanks to the routes that I trace I can see the best way to reach.

"my location in space."

What do you like best?

I like google maps because it allows me to locate myself in space, know where I am and where I need to go and above all, it helps me to select the most appropriate way to reach my destination without losing time for traffic.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that there are times I lose the connection in a route and I can not reach my destination, however I consider that it is not a problem of the application but of my connection to the internet.

Google maps is a very easy to use and very useful application for any work field therefore I recommend it.

"Google Maps"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that I can get mapping from anywhere. Just pull it up on my device, phone and put in the address where I want to go and via my location, it will map me from where I am currently at and give me the best route. I used Google maps when we traveled all the states from the middle of the USA and all the east coast in 2016. Was easy finding places with google maps by asking it what is near me for something we were looking for.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I cannot get a signal in less populated areas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a great app that will get you to where you want instead of spending money on a GPS. Google Maps is the way to go. Super user friendly and you can't go wrong.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It ables me to get to anywhere when I become lost and unable to find where I am going because my normal GPS is trying to direct me off a bridge or into a ditch.

"Find the best, relevant & your favorite place globally via Google Maps"

What do you like best?

Google Maps API is really one of the best applications I am using since last 4-5 years which comes with a User-friendly interface that a person of any age can use it easily. I am using this for my personal use and for official purpose as well. Even the managers and the management team can use it to guide our customers. It shows the best as well the some other routes which a person can prefer to reach our destination. It even tells you the distance along with fare between your location and destination. It's really very simple and practical application to locate places and destination along with the GPS that gives you an exact form for our location. One of the best part of this product is that it displays the landmarks near by or any other place between the route. The application gains user traffic as there is an option which tells a user to book any cab like OLA or Uber using this app which specifics the minimum or maximum fare of the cab. The best part which I like about this Google Map API is that it also show the places at your near by location. Those places includes coffee shops, restaurants, fuel stations, schools, hospitals, and many more.

What do you dislike?

As far as I have used this Google Maps Application, I didn't get any negative aspect for this Google Maps API. But, what I feel lacking is that sometimes it shows the time duration to our destination double the actual time between our location and the destination. Except this point, it is perfect application to search for any route.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just to show the actual time between the live location and the destination. It is the best application which helps you to reach your destination with a relevant path.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This app has resolved many of our business issues like we can esily locate our address on this Google Maps API. After using this application it becomes easy for us to manage different routes to perform different testing operations for the internet services. In addition, it easily helps to locate exact places for my new offices along with internet services. It is very helpful not for our management team only, but even helped our team to locate and find address of our clients as well as leads. So, it becomes easy for us to just send the address of our office to a client or any other person and he or she can easily reach there by following the recommended paths. It becomes easy for us to schedule our meetings at any restaurant or a coffee shop near our location or our clients location.

"No te pierdas con Google Maps."

What do you like best?

Es una aplicación en línea y multiplataforma, que tan solo necesitas un navegador y conexión internet para acceder a ella.

Es simple, amigable y rápida.

Como empresa, nos va a permitir situarnos en el mapa de Google siendo más fácil que nuestros clientes o alumnos nos encuentren y visiten.

Es muy práctica, te permite elegir un destino y una posición de inicio (puede ser la que marque el gps) y te sugiere varias rutas, en función de si vas en coche o andando.

Si vas en transporte público , te dice qué numeros de autobus o metro debes coger.

Si tienes GPS además te marcará el lugar exacto en el que estás en todo momento.

Si lo usas como navegador en tu coche, te avisa de posibles retenciones y te cambia la ruta para optimizar tu llegada a destino.

Te indica lugares de interés cercanos, así como comercios, restaurantes, etc.

Te va a permitir trazar rutas de varias etapas en un mapa.

Es gratisd

What do you dislike?

Si quieres acceder a todas las opciones para darle uso en tu empresa sí que debes pasar por caja. Aunque con la versión básica gratuita nos ha sido suficiente de momento.

Si vas al extranjero y no vas a tener conexión, no podrás usar la aplicación a no ser que te bajes los mapas que vas a visitar antes, lo cual consume mucho espacio en disco.

A veces es un poco lento si se utiliza del smartphone.

Si lo usas como navegador en tu coche, no te avisa del límite de la carretera ni la velocidad a la que vas.

Por lo demás estamos bastante contentos con la aplicación.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cuidado con adquerir la versión premium para Bussiness pues desde el pasado verano de 2018 han subido los precios.

Es cierto que se puede uno apañar con la básica y nadie tendrá problemas para que nos encuentren en el mapa y visiten nuestra sede.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A la hora de hacer visitas fuera de nuestra empresa nos ha ayudado muchísimo, al indicarnos en seguida la ruta exacta más rapida a seguir.

En los viajes al extranjero, ayuda a moverte como si estuvieras en casa por la ciudad que visitas, gracias a las opciones stree view.

Nos ha ayudado tambien a posicionarnos en el mapa y a que nuestros clientes nos encuentren y nos visiten de forma rápida.

Todo ellos sin realizar ningún tipo de inversión económica.

What do you dislike?

I dislike few things about this API as for example that when you are using the smarphone is a little slow, additional that you have a short number to place markers in the application.

It is an excellent tool for multiple uses, which will give you abundant benefits.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"New Price Hikes - BEWARE!"

What do you like best?

Its an awesome API, great documentation, quality data.

What do you dislike?

Sooooo... I just got charged over 7,000 dollars on my personal credit card because of this, worst of all, it was for a project at an old company that I no longer work for and didn't realize my personal card was hooked up. I built something as a POC for the company, programming it under the old limits. Left and forgot about it. They still use it. Then they emailed my old company email about the price hikes 2 weeks ago (which I obviously didn't get). They then told me "Support Portal access is only for customers who have purchased a Premium Enterprise license" :O

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be very careful about their new pricing. This went into effect on July 16th I am writing this review as of August 2nd. If you want more information about the changes check this out. http://geoawesomeness.com/developers-up-in-arms-over-google-maps-api-insane-price-hike/

"Satellite map and locator"

What do you like best?

Google Maps is an excellent tool because it offers me the ability to zoom in and zoom out to show the map. I can control the map from my smart phone until I move to the location I want. Just enter an address, street, intersection will guide me to the desired destination.

What do you dislike?

This is a very good application but unfortunately for you functions you should have internet connection and another thing is that the interface created for the mobile is a bit limited in terms of the markers' siponymity found on the PC

Recommendations to others considering the product

This service is not only a system for calculating trajectories and cartography like many others, it is an application that thanks to the rapidity with the work facilitates your work management by improving the quality of the service that is provided in terms of face-to-face attention.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It gives me ease of tracing routes for faster way to perform technical assistance work, in my case for installation of satellite equipment reaching quickly, accurately and above all safe, generating a satisfaction as far as concerns. already with this application can calculate the time of arrival at the site of the intalacion, which is the most feasible route and also lets me know what type of terrain in which we will work. This is an application te muentra streets, gives you points of references from any part of the world and is always updated in terms of cities, country and any new location, I repeat worldwide which when it is used for routes of employment if not for tourist routes this application is the best

"A complete solution and a hard blow to free custom web mapping."

What do you like best?

The Google Maps API makes publishing a map an easy thing to do. It also complemented with a series of tools that can be integrated easily alongside the map in a web-app that meets your or your client's needs.

What do you dislike?

It does not work well with tools outside the Google Family and it has stopped being free despite using crowdsourcing to function and further develop it's features (e.g. live traffic)

Recommendations to others considering the product

The power of the Google Maps API is its execellent hosting, its interoperability with the other tools and APIs of the Google Family and that is already everywhere. Is it worth using after the pricing changes? It all comes down to: a) If you need all these tools b)If you need that scalabilty? c)If can you afford it d)If you don't have the time and resources to develop these functionalities on your own. If the abovementioned conditions are not met then I would strongly advise you refrain from using Google Maps and move to other web mapping platforms like OpenLayers, Leaflet etc. otherwise you will find that the Google Maps API is a really strong tool and easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Google Maps you have access to: satellite imagery, street maps, places search and info, 360° panoramic views of streets, routing for traveling by foot, car, bicycle, or public transportation and real-time traffic conditions. You can easily overlay and style additional data in a geoJSON format. The Google Maps API can be easily integrated with other Google APIs (geocoding, geolocation, distance matrix, elevation, Google Drive etc.) to provide the tools you need to build a complex Web GIS solution - or the according APIs to let you develop your GIS in android environment.

"Google Maps, a better way to see the world."

What do you like best?

Google Maps is the name of a free Google service. It is a map application server on the web. It offers images of scrollable maps, as well as satellite photographs of the world and even the route between different locations or images at street level. The best thing about Google Maps is that it is an easy-to-use application that offers the ability to zoom in and out to show the map as well as jump a lot of additional information about a lot of the places in the world, showing routes to reach different from our site where we are located, in addition to allowing us to print, send or link the maps.

What do you dislike?

The main disadvantages of this wonderful application are that it necessarily requires an Internet connection and that Google Street View is not yet complete, since it only offers us some cities.

Sometimes the resolution is not very good in some cities not very important, as the level of detail is very low, there are also places that do not appear or some images that are placed are not current

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google is a big company that is doing things well, it must maintain the same focus

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the biggest advantages that Google Maps offers us are the 3 options of view of Maps: Nominal, Satellite and Terrain, also if a client wants to arrive by public transport, like bus, you can look at the bus stops closest to the business, also is a 100% adaptable tool for any device: Computer, Laptop, Tablet or Smartphone. In this way business customers can locate the business from various environments.

"The tool that makes your geographic location easier"

What do you like best?

I like the updated information it offers about the geographical coordinates that you require, it is also very practical and easy to use. I like it because it offers different options to reach a certain territory being an excellent tool that allows us at any given time to present a difficulty in changing the route without having to affect the logistics.

What do you dislike?

I think they should look for some solution in the connection part of the gps, because if you do not have a browser that has great speed it is a little complicated to use it correctly because when you locate any address if you manage to give it you get it wrong.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Simple tool of great utility, easy use and complete availability. I recommend them to make your work trip as comfortable as possible

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my case, I can say that it has been very useful because I have to work in different cities and I have helped to locate streets, roads, avenues, etc. Making my work trip a pleasant one, as I save time during the trip

"Google Map"

What do you like best?

I like that Google Maps because it is pretty accurate with directions. It shows things that in the area of your destination as well as to get to your destination. It also shows the estimated time for travel which is great for planning timed trips.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that Google Maps do not always pick up construction and road closures all the time. You would have to get to the close road then turn around before it will reroute your trip.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This program is a great free GPS.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company have RT that goes to patients houses so this program helps the plan they trip time at the office so they can get the max benefit of seeing the most patient possible.

When we use google maps every day it is easier for us to take advantage of all the advantages of this application. Many times it can facilitate our personal needs or the company where we work because this may be the best map and route program that it exists and being as extensive as the whole world is, the way it is so easy to use is great.

What do you dislike?

The only bad thing that this application has and I know that as I think many is how limited it is because of their necessary use of the Internet there are places that simply do not have access to the internet or a not so good internet and it is in these places where usually needs more the application.

"Only location based API"

What do you like best?

From getting the distance from point-point, to using navigating system and facilities like getting the real look of a place that a person is standing. Woah ! there's too much to include. Most popular use is geo-tagging in many websites we see and actually its free.

You can also get your position on a map. Its use is also very simple. To use just include their url with your key in your html document for website or your the editor you use for other software.

There are lots of video tutorials for different work that can be accomplished through this api making it easy to learn.

Above all, it is light-weight. Doesn't take much time to load, neither ddo it affect component of your project that are isolated from this api's use.

What do you dislike?

Pricing.

With certain responses from api, it recommends to buy the API key which can be a bit not-economical for few occupations.

But the features you get with this key has way more potential to increase conversion rate of customers.

No offline mode.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have very less use of API, many other sites provides facility but remember they are not accurate. For vague data, go for it. But when accuracy is main concerned, buying a higher version is recommended.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our many project has simple to complex use of Google Map API. Processing response is also very easy and as mentioned earlier the look and features included in our project has much warmer response from customers. We also have some projects like highway hotels, news apps etc where this api is use extensively.

"The best maps experience out there"

What do you like best?

Google Maps is an all-in-one product. Not only does it give you directions on how to get from point A to point B, it will also give you user ratings and reviews for both, photos of the inside, live updates on how busy it is in each location as well as how much traffic you might run into on the way. I love it!

What do you dislike?

Very rarely, I will be brought to the wrong place (just slightly) or run into an issue where it's taking me through the wrong entrance, a construction zone that's totally blocked off, etc. But I think out of all maps apps out there, Google is the best and most reliable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Maps allows me to get to meetings on time without having to stress about how I'm going to get there. I really love the live traffic updates. It also allows people to review MY business, which drives even more business. It's great!

It even tells you the distance along with the fare between your location and destination. It also shows the places that include restaurants, service stations, museums, schools, hospitals, among others. I use it for my personal use and for work activities. It is really a very simple and practical application to locate places and destinations along with the GPS that gives you an exact form for the location of my work, only an internet connection is required. Another of the benefits is that it allows tracing routes of several stages on a map. This tool makes publishing a map easy to do.

What do you dislike?

I could say that it is a complete application, however, to enjoy it you need to have an internet connection, the other aspect is that when it is used on the phone it is a bit slow, it is a bit limited, and it costs to get a signal in mountainous areas and away from the city.

For the institution where I work, it has been a practical and easy to use application, on the one hand, by sending the address of our facilities to anyone interested in visiting us and even to the new students, they can easily get there following the recommended paths. In another sense, it is also easy for us to schedule our meetings in any other place that is close to the location of the university, or if, on the contrary, there are work meetings outside our institution, this application helps to locate immediately the exact route to follow to arrive at the proposed destination. In general, you can easily locate our location on the google map. By using Google Maps, you have access to: satellite images, street maps, search of places and information, 360 ° panoramic views of the streets, routes to travel on foot, automobile, bicycle or public transport and traffic conditions in real time .

"Navigate, go, find and share new places very easily"

What do you like best?

My most liked feature is location sharing option which is very handy while visiting new places. When there is a meeting or business conference I usually share location link of the place with the participants. Simple sharing feature makes it easy to find needed location with high accuracy. You can also save visited places with pinning option which makes it easy to find that place when needed. Main advantage of Google Maps API is high gps accuracy in any place.

What do you dislike?

While driving car Google Maps offers many alternatives. It is a very good feature for choosing suitable route. But if you touch to screen auto follow feature turns off automatically. You have to follow route manually by hand and it is very distracting. I would like auto follow feature will be permanent in the next updates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it almost every day. It helps me especially when I call taxi and don't know street name. I just enter to Google Maps and see all information about the place with high accuracy.

"The main tool in my work"

What do you like best?

I really like this map application because I can give it different uses. The main one is to consult directions and calculate routes; You can find out the location of any place as well as calculate the route from different points. This route is calculated based on the means of transport chosen to travel between the two points, offering traffic data and other incidents according to the election.

Google Maps also acts as GPS: it can indicate the direction to take on the way to a place, also taking into account here how we are moving. You can also send an address to the navigator of a car without having to type it in it. I love this and I apply it a lot in my work as a taxi driver.

Another of its functions is to consult in detail how is a territory thanks to satellite photos. It also serves to locate businesses such as shops and restaurants and see how they are inside thanks to Google's Business View project.

I love that Google Maps is a tool that also allows the user from his Android to "travel" around the world and explore remote places. I always do it.

What do you dislike?

I like everything from google maps, I have nothing bad to say about this application
