Answer

For the toolbar you have outlined in red, you can disable it using the setMapToolbarEnabled() method in UISettings.

From the documentation:

Sets the preference for whether the Map Toolbar should be enabled or disabled. If enabled, users will see a bar with various context-dependent actions, including 'open this map in the Google Maps app' and 'find directions to the highlighted marker in the Google Maps app'.

Code example to disable the two buttons:

//Disable Map Toolbar:
mMap.getUiSettings().setMapToolbarEnabled(false);

Just in case you were also wondering about the zoom buttons, you can disable them like this:

mMap.getUiSettings().setZoomControlsEnabled(false);
