I just installed a map/driving directions app on my phone.
HOME SCREEN

When I tapped its icon on my home page, it took me to a screen that offered something about ad-free for $2.49. I tapped "I'll do this later", because it didn't give me any other option. Now when I tap the map icon, it gives me the following screen.

MAPS OPTIONS?

When I click Online Maps (above) I see this

Clearly, this isn't what I want!

Can someone tell me how to ~navigate (pun intended!) to a screen that let's select locations closer to home?

TIA for your help.

I installed Google Maps from Play Store.
GET STARTED

After I set my home address, it required me to accept collecting web and app activity. In other words, more ads.

It shows the steps (turns, distances) but you have to read the steps, unlike my Garmin device. Is there a setting to get voice directions?

I understand you aren't volunteering to explain how to use Google Maps. I asked how to install it and you told me how. I appreciate your help.

It should do voice turn by turn at least mine does i don't think it has a setting to enable once you click get directions on the right hand side you should see a magnifying glass and a speaker if you click it it should be unmuted
