    Default Google Maps view from the top in navigation

    I am sorry if this has been asked before but the newest thread on the issue I could find was from 2010. When I am using Google Maps in navigation mode on my Galaxy S4, it shows me the route from the top, with the view not following the direction.
    It didn't use to be like that before, it used to be like any other GPS app - behind the blue arrow, and it is really annoying me. Please tell me what is causing that. Thanks

    TBH I haven't a clue. Probably a setting.
    But I don't have that problem with the free navigation app Waze (which was purchased by Google Maps a few months ago for 4 billion...; apparently worth it to them).

    Nah, I have a problem with pretty much any other free navigation app in my country, as Google's support is the best. I can still use Maps without a problem, but this is simply annoying.

    Edit: It's also worth mentioning that I have already been through the settings more than once and there is no option for that, as far as I am aware.

    Try Waze.
    Best supported by its own users in their own locales.

    Near the top right of the map, see the circle with the N and red arrow pointing up? Tap that to switch between north up and heading up, which is the option you're looking for.

    Thank you a lot, I must have pressed it somehow before. Thanks again
