  40. 40. FAQs Q.  Wait.  Anyone  can  change  Google  Maps?   A.  Yes.  Anyone  signed  in  with  a  Google  Account  can  change  the  map.  But  everything   goes  through  review  by  a  team  of  Googlers  and  mappers  with  local  knowledge.     Q.  How  long  does  it  take  for  my  changes  to  show  up  on  Google  Maps?   A.  Once  approved,  it  takes  minutes.  It  may  take  anywhere  from  an  hour  to  a  few  days   to  approve  your  edit,  depending  on  the  complexity  of  it.     Q.  Is  there  a  mobile  version?   A.  No.  There's  no  mobile  version.  But  there  is  an  Android  app,  MyTracks,  that  lets  you   collect  GPS  tracks  and  works  preky  well  with  Map  Maker  Overlays.     Q.  Can  anyone  review?   A.  Yes.  Anyone  can  review,  but  whether  a  change  gets  published  depends  on  how   trusted  the  mapper  and  reviewer(s)  are  and  how  sensi3ve  the  map  data  being  changed   is.  Reviewing  others  changes  will  get  your  changes  reviewed  more  quickly,  too.
