BACKOUT or Put a FIX IN for buggy update.


Love this map app.. especially being able to share my location real-time with other people. Found this hidden gem feature (for me at least)traveling from IL to FL. Kept ppl I formed without a lot of texts or phone calls. 👍

That said… based on my interaction with the app a recent release royally screwed up city navigation where I’m at near Fort Meyers FL. I hope the update I just installed corrects the issues and madness this app has caused me the last few days bc I don’t know this city from Adam. The app has been literally unusable for 2-3 days navigating the area. So bad the audio told me to go south when I needed to go due north. I looked at the screen and the satellite image was correct on current location and route to intended location. I couldn’t get the audio to toggle on at all. Even after reboot of my iPhone 10. That’s when had no choice but exit your app and use map app plan B.

IN SUMMARY, google developers please don’t make me find a new “everyday use” map app so I can rely on it to tell me the correct information in this city. If you haven’t already,, backout, research issues if you aren’t aware, or push an emergency update with fixes to correct things. Thank you 😕


It’s alright. Buggy sometimes even with good signal. When I search along the route it will sometimes not come up with any search results, only for me to pass the very thing I searched for prior in my drive. And no it wasn’t a new business, it had been around for years. Also when I search places, one will say it’s 10 minutes out of the way while the other says only a few. Only to realize that the faster one ended up not being as simple as they said, and that the slower one (+10 minutes) was only slow because for some reason it had me take side roads completely around it before arriving, when I could have simply turned directly into it from the road I was on, making it a quick trip. Not all gas stations show up in searches, it almost seems to favor the expensive gas stations. There’s doesn’t seem to be an algorithm that keeps track of the bad traffic times. It will re rout my whole trip to a significantly slower route if it senses traffic, even if that traffic is close to the end of my trip hours away and will be cleared well before I get to that point. If you’re a contractor that has to go in and out of many neighborhoods, it normally recognizes certain entrances while not recognizing others, so it will take you completely around the neighborhood 30 minutes away to the other entrance when you have just passed a perfectly good entrance that has been around forever. It’s still one of the better gps apps, but still way to buggy to trust it

Head north or south??!!

This app routinely gives directions by saying head north, south, east, or west on a certain road. Now, I’m not a moron and I know the sun rises in the east and sets in the west and whatnot and it is easy enough to figure out my cardinal directions if it is early morning or late afternoon but when there are fifteen people waiting for me to make a turn and it’s high noon, overcast, a moonless night or any of a half dozen other circumstances under which it is difficult to decipher cardinal directions on the fly I REALLY wish it would just say go left or right!!!! I cannot tell you how many times I have just picked a direction and turned the wrong way and then had to wait on the app to re-route me when it could have been easily avoided by simply saying turn left instead of head north. I use the app a lot since I drive for a popular delivery service and when I get lost because I head north instead of south I end up being late for my delivery which lowers my tip and my rating which reduces the number of deliveries I am offered and impacts my ability to make a living all because it expects me to figure out north from south when I’m already stressed, in a hurry, and trying to arrive somewhere I’ve never been before all while being timed. I’m certainly not the only person who can’t tell north from south when stressed. Please, do me a favor and reduce the mental arithmetic it takes me to drive when under pressure and just say left or right.

How to find out if a Sberbank card is ready?

The readiness of a Sberbank card, as a rule, depends on many factors. The main one, of course, is the officially declared production time. In addition, the duration of the card production may be affected by the type of the card itself, the time of its delivery to the relevant branch where you applied.

Terms of production of Sberbank cards

How to find out if the Sberbank salary card is ready?

Visit to the office

Learn about the readiness of the Sberbank card Online

Information about the card by phone

Readiness of the card after reissuance

Readiness of the card after an online application as part of the pre-approved offer. These types of cards are not registered, they do not have the name of the owner, so they are issued at the time of application, after which you can immediately receive or spend money. nine0003

It takes time to make a name card. Plastic will have to be ordered in Moscow, manufactured, delivered to the department at the place of customer service. It takes more than one day, so I would like to know how to get information about the readiness of a Sberbank card.

Production time for Sberbank cards

The standard production time for a card with the owner’s name stamped on it does not exceed 10 days. But only residents of the capital and St. Petersburg can count on receiving a card within 2-5 days. For other regions of Russia, it is necessary to take into account the time of delivery of the card to the bank branch, since the plastic is made in Moscow. nine0003

Production time for a card with an individual design is 30 days. Moreover, it is counted from the moment of final approval of the design by the customer.

How do I know if the Sberbank salary card is ready?

If the company where you work has entered into an agreement with the bank for servicing a payroll project, cards for employees are produced centrally and issued through the company. In this case, calls to the bank will not bring results. It is better to be interested in the readiness of the cards from your superiors. nine0003

Visit to the office

The question of whether the card is ready can be answered directly at the bank branch where the contract was concluded. If you do not mind going to the branch, you can ask this question directly from the staff. When the card is ready, it will be issued immediately. You will need to show your passport for proof of identity.

Find out about the readiness of the Sberbank Online card

If you already had a Sberbank card and you reissue it after the expiration date or for another reason, information about the readiness of the card is available in your Sberbank Online Internet banking account. In your personal account, you can see a slightly darkened image of the card and its status. If the status is “the card is waiting for you at the branch”, you can go to the bank, taking your passport with you. nine0003

You will not see a new card in your account. It will appear only after connecting the Mobile Banking service.

Information about the card by phone

It is convenient to control the readiness of the card by calling the hotline. You need to dial 8 (800) 555-55-50, select the «Specialist Help» section, provide the operator with information that allows you to identify you, after which he will answer your question.

Another simple and reliable way to get information from the bank is the feedback form. The link to the feedback form is located at the top of the main page of the site. You will need to fill out a form, state the question and wait for a response. Indicate in which department you issued the card, date of application, type of card. The answer will be sent to the specified email address or SMS message. You choose the form of informing yourself when applying. nine0003

You can expect a message for several days, but it will definitely come. Sberbank does not leave the questions and problems of citizens without a response.

Card readiness after reissue

As mentioned above, when a card is reissued, information about the status of the reissued card can be tracked in the Sberbank Online personal account. It is convenient, it does not require time for calls, visits to the bank, filling out written forms.

Also, the bank sends an SMS message to the client, after receiving which you can go to the branch for a new payment instrument. nine0003

Card is ready after an online application

When ordering a card via an online application, you also do not have to worry about when a new card will be ready. As soon as the application is completed and the card is issued, you will receive an SMS message with a secret code. With it, you can go to the site and check in the Internet bank the status of the department’s readiness to issue you plastic.

What documents are needed to apply for a bank card

For life

Small business

Bank cards are used for cashless payments. You can issue and receive a card at any bank — at a branch or remotely using courier delivery. At the same time, a person may have different cards of several banks — debit, credit, payroll. To apply for a card, you must submit an application for opening on the website or at a branch and provide several documents. Which ones — depends on the type of card and the requirements of a particular bank.

Become a customer

What documents are needed to get a card

Most people apply for a debit or credit card. The difference between the cards is who owns the funds in the account. For debit, this is its owner, for credit, the bank.

Issuing a debit card requires only personal identification: when filling out an application, it is enough to provide a passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation. A copy will be made from it, which will remain with the bank.

To get a credit card, the borrower needs to present documents that will confirm not only the identity, but also solvency:


  • passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation;
  • second identity document: military ID, SNILS, driver’s license, tax registration certificate or international passport;
  • information on monthly income — certificate 2-NDFL;
  • copy of the work book.

Additionally, you can provide documents on ownership of real estate, a car, or information on other income, which includes pension accruals, scholarships, investment income. Such information can be taken into account when setting a credit limit on the card. nine0003

If the bank, on its own initiative, sends a personal loan offer to an existing client, then only a passport and any other identity document are needed to activate it.

Registration of a bank card by a stateless person

Persons with foreign citizenship can receive a card for cashless payments in Russia. To draw up an agreement with a bank, a foreign passport with a notarized translation into Russian or another identity document under an international agreement with the Russian Federation is used. nine0003

The set of documents requested by the bank depends on the circumstances of the foreign citizen’s stay in our country: residence permit, temporary residence permit, refugee status, labor migration, study.

Things to remember when applying for bank cards

  • Credit cards have a grace period. During it, the client can use the bank’s funds free of charge, interest on the loan is not charged. Pay off your debt on time so you don’t overpay. nine0082
  • Credit card grace periods may be limited. For example, if you withdraw money or transfer it to other cards, the interest-free period does not apply, interest is charged for using the money, like for a loan.
  • The bank maintains credit histories, with regular delays in payments, the conditions for further loans for the client worsen.
  • Debit and credit card services, including mobile banking, can be both free and paid. Unused services can be disabled. nine0082
  • Debit cards have unauthorized and technical overdraft — a small credit limit. Unauthorized is connected by the holder independently — you need to write an application to the bank. The client is given the opportunity to pay «in debt» for the amount determined under the agreement with the bank. Interest on the loan is charged only on the overdraft amount. The technical one arises automatically in situations related to the conditions of banking services. For example, when currency rate adjustments occur while using the card, the cost of the annual service or mobile banking is debited from the card, but there are not enough funds on the card. In such cases, overdraft interest is not charged, the account holder is only required to repay the debt. nine0082

How the card is issued

ParagraphWrapper» color=»brand-primary»> Many bank cards can be issued independently via the Internet and received at a convenient address. Raiffeisen Bank offers a wide range of cards available for online issuance with cashback, accrual of interest on the balance, insurance, accumulation of miles and other bonus programs.

To apply for a card in person at a bank branch, you need:


Contact the branch, fill out an application, provide documents


Sign an agreement to open an account, consent to the processing of personal data, mailings and notifications


If necessary, write an application to connect mobile banking and additional services


9003 Receive the card when it is ready 9003

ParagraphWrapper» color=»brand-primary»> On the day of application, you can only receive a non-personalized card. Name cards with embossing of the holder’s first and last name are issued within 10 to 30 days. The term depends on the type of product — debit or credit card, the availability of bank offices in the region. nine0003

Why a bank may refuse to issue a card

In some cases, a bank may refuse to issue a plastic card. The most common reasons are:

  • submission of knowingly false information;
  • errors when filling out documents;
  • exceeding the allowed number of credit cards;
  • violation of the terms of the service agreement;
  • being blacklisted.

When the card expires, the bank automatically reissues it without additional documents. The owner needs to come with a passport and pick up the card or order its delivery by courier. nine0003
