Poor device compatibility
The app description says it gives my iPhone or iPad the best in GPS navigation so I downloaded on my iPhone. It was okay and when I try to download it on my iPad I can't find it. One of the FAQ page from Garmin's website says you are supposed to download and run it as an iPhone app and tap 2x to switch to full screen. Seriously, Garmin??? By your definition what ios app doesn't support iPad? Even when I put it on my iPad 4 the layout is horrible. There is a white bar at the top of the screen...
The features are okay. The look and feel is consistent with my hardware Garmin GPS so it took me no time to get used to it. The visibility of shortcuts is customizable which allows me to simplify the navigation view to my preference.These feature would be great:
1. adjust font size: font is too small on my iPhone especially in straight up display
2. display the app horizontally even the ios' orientation lock is on. I normally turn on iphone's portrait orientation lock to prevent other apps to rotate but as a user transitioned from hardware GPS 99.99% of the time i expect Garmin to display horizontally.
3. Download maps state by state or have an option for CANADA and USA. IPhone is not a dedicated GPS device so I'd like have to have more flexibility to conserve space
4. Add a shortcut to quickly switch between 3D and north up view. This is available on earlier versions of hardware (2555LMT), but it was changed on a model I bought early 2013. Neither can I do it on this app. With 3D view, I have to tap twice to get to north up view which is excessive considering i'm driving.
5. If toll avoidance causes over 100km (or a custom distance) of detour then I should be aware of.
Good so far
Map updates are good. It lets you choose the map size you want to install locally on your device. Only thing I would ask for is to let this app work native on the iPad.
