Google Maps gets fairly frequent updates (although I don't use it all that much). But, I have recently had to use it for some travel. I noticed that, where Google Maps used to give directions in this fashion...

"Turn left onto Main Street in 0.2 miles."

...ever since I did an update (no clue which update it was - as I said, I don't use directions THAT frequently) now all it says is...


Needless to say, this makes it rather painful to use for direction purposes. What do I need to do to fix this? I Googled around, but didn't find anything. Would appreciate suggestions.

  • Is this Google Maps or Google Navigation?

  • @LieRyan - Technically, I suppose it is Google Navigation. (I'm browsing to the street address through Google Maps.)

  • This is a known issue with some versions of ICS: productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/maps/FDKwbM5zMuU/…

  • @Zooks64 - Oog. That's a bummer. Well, I just got 4.0.4 (the OTA pushes have begun). Next time I'm out driving, I'll test it out to see if the problem has resolved itself.

  • @JasCav I just installed the 4.0.4 update yesterday but haven't had any reason to try out the turn by turn directions since then. I sure hope that it is resolved - I got spoiled with the street names.

Turns out the issue appeared to be specifically with a Google Maps update. I have received two updates over Google Play since then and the problem appears to have resolved.
