"An excellent tool for your global location"

What do you like best?

What is a fairly simple and practical application in which you can do many things such as locating places and destinations, has a very particular application as is the GPS this gives you an exact form for your location.

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.

Recommendations to others considering the product

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?

With this application I have been able to manage different routes to perform different drive tests in my employment as a radio frequency engineer. In addition, it has allowed me to locate exact places for the installation of hydrometeorological stations, in addition to it together with other applications and this I have managed to predict as is the type of terrain to do radio link studies.

"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.

"Satellite location "

What do you like best?

I like because I can know exactly where I am and where I want to go, I also like that this application gives me different alternatives to reach my destination giving me the opportunity to choose the one that is most feasible for me.When I traveled to the Dominican Republic for the first time and did not know anything Google maps helped me get to all the places I needed to visit in a quick and timely manner, that's why I love this application.

What do you dislike?

Actually this application is good enough to dislike some of it, siembargo I consider the disadvantage is that it can not be used without an internet connection.otherwise I have no complaints, google maps is great

Recommendations to others considering the product

I love google maps because thanks to this application I can move anywhere thanks to its quick and accurate address, that's why I recommend it with my eyes closed.

"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

"The most comfortable tool to locate places anywhere in the world."

What do you like best?

What I like most about this program, is that you can download it anywhere and it's totally free and that in turn has spectacular satellite images very up-to-date (depending on the city).

What do you dislike?

The only thing I do not like is the method of creating keys, since many times they do not arrive or they are slow to arrive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend that you document a little before acquiring this program since you have many API applications. Many can be adapted to your needs. To better manage or understand this program I recommend that you have help from a programmer.

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

Google is a very useful tool because it helps me a lot to get places, land or buildings in a very fast way with either vector or raster information.

"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/

"Robust Geo-coding Solution "

What do you like best?

It works in Australia and makes use of a route map rather than working "as the crow flies." It's a robust and reliable solution to identify the quickest route between two points automatically.

What do you dislike?

When using the free experience, the solution will simply stop working and stop providing results without prior warning.

There is a limit to the amount of 'markers' that one can place on a Google map at once.

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

We use Google Maps to convert a users postcode and suburb into a longitude and latitude, then identify the nearest buying centre or driver. By ranking buying centres by the buying centre that is closest we are able to provide the most relevant location first when offering the opportunity to book an appointment.

"Could be great, but isn't even good."

What do you like best?

It provides GPS tracking of you and your location, uses Transit service info and Uber and Lyft to get you around. The integration of your personal info is also used to accomplish this, which borders a fine line between privacy invasion and convenience.

What do you dislike?

The app does not use the compass that's on your device. That makes knowing which direction you face literally impossible. It does not notify you of your destination when you arrive there, or when you're going there, which is very inconvenient. It does not inform you of how many blocks you need to travel, but informs you of feet or miles, which is often indeterminable. It uses outdated route numbers nobody knows roads by, instead of their common names, for example: The Notification would announce "Continue on local route "630" for 1000 feet", instead of saying "continue on Market street for 3 blocks". It's very simple to make this software extremely convenient, but it hasn't been done.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Once they make the necessary adjustments, it Might work better.

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

It enhances my transportation abilities when I need to get to unknown locations while transporting goods to customers, people to destinations and need to provide a service to others.

"Maps with ease"

What do you like best?

It's great to be able to have Google Maps accessible directly from our website.

What do you dislike?

There's little I can think of that I dislike about Maps API.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Goggle Maps API is an easy and efficient way to add Maps for whatever purpose needed to your website. Whether using Maps API or something similar, having direct access to directions, addresses, views of location, etc. directly on your website is a healthy business practice. Google Maps API is an easy and effective way to incorporate that practice. Best solution IMO.

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

Having Maps accessible directly from our website increases the amount of time visitors are spending on our page rather than navigating off and opening a new tab to access Maps which can ultimately navigate site visitors to other sites rather than spending time on ours. The longer a potential customer spends on our website, the higher the likelihood of them to buy our products and services.

"This helps our patrons know where to find us!"

What do you like best?

We recently got a new Outreach van for our library system and it is a fantastic tool to reach out to the community. What is hard for both staff and patrons is to keep up with where it's at!

What do you dislike?

It's pretty slow sometimes, if you are trying to view the location on a phone especially. Which is problematic if you are trying to find our Outreach van when you are out and about in the community. I cannot make adjustments to this. Only our website administrator is able to change MARCOs location.

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

We are helping our patrons find us when we are involved in HUGE public gatherings. We live in a city that has lots of festivals in the summer and we, as a library, are often involved in these but with so many vendors and so much commotion it can be hard to find us. Google Maps API helps us with that by allowing our patrons to pinpoint our active location on a map.

"the only GPS I trust "

What do you like best?

Honestly, the reliability. I have an iPhone, and have actually deleted the standard apple maps in favor of google. I travel to different locations for work, and google maps is the only system that I trust to be quick and effective.

What do you dislike?

It takes up more space than my original maps system, and space is always a premium.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Delete whatever you are using and just use google maps.

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

Google maps is a trustworthy way to go between offices and make sure I reach my destination safely. Some of our more remote offices don't even show up on apple maps!

"Very powerful Maps API."

What do you like best?

You only need a few steps to get your free API and then import that into your own website. Once it's setup it require no further maintenance.

What do you dislike?

It can be a bit difficult to ind what you are looking. Also Getting it setup can be a bit complicated if you are a novice to programming or API's.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a bit complex to use and is hugely powerful. There isn't really another option for mapping that's as widely used as Google Maps.

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

We were wanting to display different locations on google maps across several websites. For this we used a free Maps Javascript API.

"Getting me out of Jams"

What do you like best?

When I truly don't know where to find a potential client or have gotten lost on the way back from a client, Google Maps has aided in getting me where I needed to be. Also with finding the shorter route between clients.

What do you dislike?

So much data usage! And it's hard to shut off while driving.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always pull over when first turning on. Keep your eyes on the road. Again, please pull over if you're getting confused or upset. You still need to keep your eyes on the road, not the phone. Watch the road, save lives.

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

Finding the quickest route from one client to another, determining mileage for tax purposes, meeting new clients in a timely fashion.

" Experience with Google Maps"

What do you like best?

Rapid location capability and your voice help that is perfect when driving.

What do you dislike?

I really think it's a good tool but to focus to have more accuracy I would like it to take faster the central point so that it does not send to a longer path

Recommendations to others considering the product

Excellent application allows you to reach the required sites without getting lost indicating the time that will be used to arrive and how many kilometers it is located, very good for work and tourism routes.

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

It allows you to reach required sites in less time, it allows you to get a reference of what is located around the requested point about the image of the streets if you are viewing and if you only need to listen, as is the case in which you are driving since you should not neglect the view in that case, it tells you the distance to which the point is and the time it should arrive and it never really fails is exactly the time it says, when it comes to making routes Work is of great help to have better distribution of time and what guarantees to be more efficient in the sites to visit per day.

"Google Maps API"

What do you like best?

What I like most about this application is that it has a coverage of 99% of the countries which means that wherever we are in the world, we can have access to the Google Maps API. It is a good option, since it tells us in real time the traffic which allows us to use other alternate routes to reach our destination faster.

What do you dislike?

I do not dislike anything, it seems an excellent application I think it gives us many benefits in terms of options to get faster to our destinations and also allows us to locate in real time, which means more security since we can have a glimpse of where you are the person we need to contact.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Let them know more about this application

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

I think the business problems that it resolves is that we can locate the actual access of the company, that is, we can know which is the least congested access road to arrive at business meetings early and in terms of the location of the places to which that you want to get faster to do business.

"Reasonably good solution, although popularity does not equal best solution"

What do you like best?

Reasonably simple, straight forward usage. Not a complex solution. Nice graphical interface with a lot of resources embedded into maps inherent with the fact that many people use google maps. Thus it has many other points of interest, listings, etc. at the user's disposal. Relatively easy to implement.

What do you dislike?

Usage limits and fees, especially for non-profit clients. Sometimes also a glitch with no solution causes much grief. Does not always work exactly like it should. Because of glitches, had to re-write project to use other mapping solutions, which in fact turned out to be much better. Should have more flexible pricing structures and plans.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take a look at all solutions and don't just use google maps because everyone else seems to be using it. That alone does not make it the best.

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

Graphical representation of territories and boundaries. Easy for end-user to use. Easy to use for non-technical end-users

"Google maps review ! "

What do you like best?

I absolutely love google maps. It is so easy to use and I have not had an issue with it thus far

What do you dislike?

The only thing I “disliked” was that I missed my turn and it did not re-route me fast enough so I got lost. But that could have been due to lack of cell service?

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

Problems that are being solved are that since I have google maps I know where I’m going and gives me an estimated time that it will take to get there so I have been on time for my appointments, unlike in the past. This would also be a huge benefit. I used to use mapquest, but google maps popped up one day and decided to give it a try and liked it so much more!
