Sign [Q] Google maps won't rotate when turning

Hey guys,

While in navigation mode, the maps always show the north at the top, and it won't auto rotate when you take a turn.

I thought it was a Google maps thing, so I was using another GPS software till now.

But today I saw a Galaxy Core, and the maps rotated automatically at every turn!

So, is it a device issue? Any input?

I suggest you using Copilot GPS! it's free and support navigation without 3g on...Google maps navigator it's not that good.

Hey. Thanks for the tip, but as already mentioned, I do have a third party GPS software.
Nevertheless, the question is about Google Maps / Navigation.
