I use Google Map API in my company's official website so that our clients easily locate us. This tool is a very affordable, accurate, and widely used map API as compared to others. I can't only customize Google Maps API as per my needs but it gives static, dynamic, and 360° views to my prospects and clients. It also gives real traffic updates when someone wants to visit our office.
  • Gives local information
  • It gets updated very frequently which helps our clients discover the shortest route
  • I can customize it as per my needs
  • Is very affordable
  • It should be updated more frequently as the route/road changes from time to time
  • Few remote locations are not covered in Google Map API
  • At fewer places it shows wrong directions so need to they research on that
It is most suited for someone who has a physical office, particularly a retail store which helps them to promote the business locally. I would suggest businessmen should use this tool for promoting their business in a more effective way. It is of least important if you are promoting your business digitally and don't have a physical location.

We use it via developing the code when we are building it from a scratch. It is one of the easiest ways to implement google maps as it contains API keys which is quite convenient as compared to others. Also fetching the API is quite easy in the code we used for displaying locations.
  • API Integration
  • Features of the API
  • Accuracy of the results
  • Lagging issues
  • Initial boot tooks long time
  • Sometimes shows inaccurate location
I used this API in a clone website where we have done the integration of the MAP API which was working quite well. But as soon as it is started working [for] a long time we may face issues while seeing the functionalities were not accurate, so we need to refresh it a couple of times in order to display particular content.

It helps us to implement certain changes in order to build the application and teach the learners how to work on API which is quite good in order to display the maps data which is required for most of the people and showing the information for the same. Google Maps API helps us for implementing certain tasks on the same web application.
  • Location accuracy application we used to for displaying current location.
  • Easiest way to guide the map from one location to another.
  • Building the scenerio based application which requires accessibility.
  • Offline location required for some certain locations
  • Needs to reduce updates as it is comes from most of the updates.
  • Maps needs to be accurate in small areas in order to find destination.
Maps API requires a sufficient amount of data that needs to be updated time by time also sometimes it throws cors issues while working with the API. It is one of the best platforms in order to implement the application. Also very easy to find the application which requires most of the time.

This application is one of the greatest applications in the current era. It is easy to reach any place in any country, governorate, or street. For example, I [can] show my location. In the past, I had trouble explaining the place and the street, and now all I have to do is send the location and the customer comes directly without an address. Thank you for this application.
  • Access to any address in any location inside or outside the city
  • Tracking anyone to and from a specific location, such as my children, [so] I know where they are
  • It is an easy application and it is difficult to find any problems or observations for it as it is a giant company that is always developing on its own.
The application supports most places, but I hope that the places will be located more closely. Sometimes, the satellite image is not clear.

We have our presence on google maps so it will make it easy for the students and parents to find us on maps and reach us easily.
Further when I travel to other cities and states for company work it helps me to find hotels, restaurants and the place where I want to go.
  • Very simple UI, easy to use.
  • You can send your live location to a person who wants to meet you.
  • You can mark and pin the locations you are travelling regularly.
  • You can get the code of iframe for any location and embed it into your organization's website also.
  • Street view is available for UK and US but not for India I hope they will do it soon
  • Updates for android devices is more frequent in comparison to IOS devices
If you love travelling [Google Maps API is] a must app for you it will guide you to the places. You can search pub, restaurant and places to stay easily in the locations where you never been before. With the live location sharing you'll never get lost.
It is fit for every scenarios it will save your time in finding the exact location.

To integrate with hybrid App focusing on current location and location information.

Our company uses Google Maps API across our whole organization. We do appointment setting and lead generation for businesses across the U.S., and quite often, a client has a large geographical area they are targeting. So in each of our databases, we have a link for Google Map API so that they can schedule appointments in the same area on the same day. This is good for our clients, so they don't have to travel a long distance back and forth between their appointments.
  • It allows us to schedule appointments in the same area on the same day.
  • It enables me to recommend geographical areas to target for our clients.
  • I would like more information about population in a particular area.
We are a call center that does appointment setting for businesses across the U.S. Quite often, and we have a client with an extensive geographical area they are targeting, sometimes even across multiple states. Our callers can quickly search the area so that they schedule appointments on the same day in the same area. Very important to our clients as they get distraught when we send them to an appointment 2 hours away and then another appointment back to where they came from and then another appointment in the middle of the two, and the client is driving back and forth. Not Good! I do not have a scenario where it did not work for what I needed it for.
It does everything I need it to do and hasn't let me down yet. It has been a lifesaver for my roofing accounts. Most of my clients for the roofing belong to an Amish community with no computers and so forth. So being able to search the maps and look at the rooftops is imperative for those campaigns.
