Customer Reviews

Bad VoiceOver Support

Accessibility has taken a huge step backwards with this update. When using this app with VoiceOver, several of the interface buttons speak the word "icon" before the button text. In addition, the button titles seem less intuitive than before. For example, the main screen of the app contains a button that VoiceOver reads as "icon adress search home button". Bonus points for anyone reading this who noticed the misspelling of address as "adress" but that's how the text appears to VoiceOver when reading character by character.

The DirectHelp screen now reports the GPS coordinates of the current location in decimal units rather than in degrees, minutes, and seconds, with no apparent way of switching from one to the other.

While a route is in progress, the DirectHelp screen doesn't always correctly report cross streets as you approach and pass them. Instead of reading the name of the exit, the app read the name of the city containing the exit instead. Previous versions of this app were more accurate when reading street names.

I am very disappointed with this update. Until now, this has been a rock solid app for seven years. That has changed significantly with this update.

There's a bug

When I have this giving directions over Bluetooth after every driving command it says "call ended". When this happened in my car the car's screen would show that I was on a call. Then later when I was in a work truck using a earpiece it did the same thing. When I turned off Bluetooth it gave directions normally. Then when I turned on Bluetooth it would always end every direction command like it was on a phone call and say "call ended".
I Googled this problem and others reported the same problem. They said it started after a update. Other GPS apps don't have this problem.

New Layout Good and Bad

The new layout has some improvements, but I greatly dislike instantly displaying the map of where I am on the main screen, without the convenient button choices that used to be available.

Please allow the option to remove the new Work Button -- those of us who are retired, or can't find work, don't need the reminder taking space. And, every time I tap the new Suitcase Button it harasses me asking me to enter my Work address. I don't have a work address! Do I enter a fake one to stop this untested irritation?
