What is Google Maps?
Google Maps is a basic web mapping service application and technology provided by Google. It offers street maps, a route planner for traveling by foot, car, or public transport and an urban business locator for numerous countries around the world. The Android version also includes turn-by-turn GPS navigation.
The service was free for all until 2018 June 11. At that point it was changed to a commercial model with the first 28,000 views free. But, you MUST give them credit card information even if you only use it a few times a month. See https://geoawesomeness.com/developers-up-in-arms-over-google-maps-api-insane-price-hike/ for details.

- reviewed Google MapsAn example of how to NOT make a map software. * Messed up categories * Completely broken search (I just don't know what it does right - it never gave me complete and sensible result in ~10 years and 5 countries) * Dumb choice of objects on different zooms (random shop or venue is more important than metro station somehow...) * Terrible rendering hiding actually important details on sensible zooms * Missing essential features (like you just cannot save a point on the map, and dozens others) * Hundreds of other completely unforced problems
