    Google maps is fantastic but I’m having problems with it not saving my searches which is a major pain. Does anyone else have that problem? Otherwise it’s far superior to the iOS maps

    Have you signed in with google? That’s required and it will save the searches over all platforms.

    Yah I am actually signed in on my phone. I tried signing out and deleteing the app and doing it all again to see if maybe that works.
