What's New in Version 2.7

- Latest map data
- Various stability improvements and bug fixes.
What a mistake spending money on this app was - it is utter rubbish. I will be sticking to Sygic from now on.
1. The map is a poor quality cartoon. Buying the 3D panoramic add on just makes it a bit bumpy, but in no way gives an accurate impression of the surrounding landscape.
2. Voice guidance is tinny, robotic, and full of Americanised pronunciations.
3. The traffic add on (expensive!) just gives a few out of date traffic alerts - a very poor offering compared to Sygic's HD traffic.
4. POIs are seriously lacking. I have tried navigating to several schools (I am a supply teacher) and they are missing from the POI database. Also a lot of local POIs are out of date.
5. Camera alerts are too easy to miss as they are just a very soft single beep that cannot be customised in any way - useless.
I have contacted iTunes for a refund, but they just redirect you to Garmin support - surprise surprise though because you cannot report a support issue to Garmin - try it, it rejects the submission.
Avoid this app at all costs, it is a useless waste of money and it is impossible to contact anyone for a refund. Perhaps a call to trading standards is necessary.
A solid app
Easy to use, good looking app. Let down by not being given choice of routes (Navigon offers 3 varying routes). Traffic seems accurate too, though do cross reference the traffic map with the traffic reports as not all traffic appears in the reports for some reason. Thankfully Garmin will still navigate around the congestion.
I do like the choice of nav pointers and ability to add speed cameras and speed limits in real time. I would like the junction pictures to remain on screen longer.
As Navigon are now part of Garmin, I'd like to think there will be positive integration between the two as my experience is Navigon offers the better routing options.
The bolt-ons are a must in my opinion, esp traffic which is updated every two minutes. Overall, a very good app and my main nav app.
I'm a Cabbie, I sold my Nuvi & purchased this instead. This is just as good, does everything the Nuvi did but now I only have my phone on my dash instead of both
