    Ah, yes. Traffic layer was replaced with "Route preview" which turns out to be better because it can be viewed in "North Up" view.
    I always want traffic layer. That is why I prefer compass mode to navigation mode. Now Im forced to use Inrix.

    No, I mean driving with a note 3 not the LG escape.

    Well I don't have the n3 but my Sis does and I use it on occasion and hers works also seeing as she uses it for work.

    I agree. I've spent some time in the official google maps forum. The moderator defies all logic and simply said it works fine. Many, many posters explain it doesn't but he just replies it works fine on his nexus. If you get at all insistent or pushy they threaten you. They won't allow you to refresh the issue by starting a new thread. The old thread isn't even called compass mode. It is called navigation without destination. The casual peruser may not even know what that is about. Google would rather avoid than address the issue. They basically tell you their developers ignore their forum and only look at complaints posted from within google maps app. It's hopeless.

    I don't mean to be rude but when you say it works if you are referring to compass mode in a car I don't believe you.



    In compass mode road should always be in front of you (vertical) as in navigation mode. please note the compass mode icon on lower right. please note road is horizontal. you may get compass mode to work for 10 minutes but drive some distance in that mode and orientation of maps will not be correct.

    Google Maps was getting to the point where it no longer worked on my phone.

    After trying many different things, I just did a factory reset of my phone and now it works like a charm.
