I didn't find it difficult to get directions from two pins. You just got to star/save them. Then when you are inputting the directions start/end pick the starred locations for your departure/arrival.


(The pin didn't show up here, but I saved this location using a pin, just like the 1st image)


I like the new maps a lot better than the old maps.

Has anyone noticed that as you drive along a route, that "6 Minute Faster" etc signs pop up but for some reason, Maps does not change the route? It sticks with the original no matter what, and I have to tap that sign or just take that exit/etc. I have to constantly watch the app during rush hour and it's a tad dangerous, but if I watch closely I can save 20-45 minutes daily, it seems.

No.. but im still using old faithful. 6.14.3 it works perfectly.. someone from apple is working on gmaps updating it to destroy it so you wont buy moto and go to apple. I can email you the old version.. so much easier to use and no problems with it

Arak, thanks for trying to help with the point to point directions but you shouldn't have to save a point to use it as a point I try to make my own shortest distance routes using touch the screen as a selection point all the time I don't want to go through the hassle of saving it and choosing from my saved points I'm constantly touching part of a highway and using it from there that spot to come up with a shorter route or just a different route that I wanted shoes no reason I should have to take time and save a point what up bull****
the old version works great just select point on map touch that point boom you are done no saving pins. so glad i was able to root the phone delete the new version and put the old version back on

another thing I don't like I miss Google update crap is talk to type it doesn't work you can't erase words that you didn't say in that last paragraph I didn't say shoes but it refuses to let me backspace and delete the damn word and I didn't say up again I can't get rid of the damn thing whatever you talk and it types it you cannot backspace erase the damn s*** like you used to be able to f****** Google man just leave something that works alone

again.. more .. i didnt say miss in that last para.. but one it is spoken and typed... you cant backspce.. anyone else have that issue? i will check settings see if i can change it. never had this problem on my razr m. if it didnt type what i said right i simply backspaced and corrected it.. but now backspace doesnt work over something King Google wants typed
