What's New in Version 2.3.66
- Maps: February 2014
What's gone wrong?!
I've used this app for a very long time and until recently, this app was flawless and brilliantly made. However, it has now become very unstable and switches off whilst in use.
I recently found another satnav app called m8 that I've been using. Although it works perfectly, it isn't put together as well as UK & ROI is. However, the one brilliant feature it has is that it runs in the background. If it is directing me somewhere, I can close the app and still have the voice navigating for me, which is brilliant!!
Please take note of this as it would be an amazing feature to add to this app. If the bugs are fixed and the the app becomes more stable then I'll go back to using it but I seriously think u need to add the background usage. This app was as close to perfection as you can get but at he moment, a few flaws and lack of background functionality are letting this product down. Fix them and you'll get your 5 stars back.
Don't waste your time + avoid frustration
If you want a "magical mystery tour app" look no further .... random fly-over visits, turning off A roads just to drive a couple of metres and then be U-turned back onto the same road you were on, if that's your type of fun, it's fill your boots time here .... this app also likes 'round the houses routes, I once checked what it thought of a route x3 houses away, NavFree worked on it for a while and found a 3 mile + 2 set of lights "quickest" alternative .... it randomly switches itself off .... there's one 40+ mile destination that I go to weekly, there's a motorway route and an A road route, at decision time this app randomly picks different ones week to week .... rrrrrrrrr I nearly forgot, if you need to let anyone know your arrival time at the other end, that randomness adds another level of fun and logic-free amusement .... I admit I've just put up with it for far too long .... I've just started using the free app Waze it seems to be a lot better already .... avoid this heap of smell like the plague ....
Some slight oddities but very useful
I prefer to rely on maps, but decided to download this when I knew I would have a cross country route with a number of motorway changes near Birmingham. It worked perfectly and in the way back, when I made a silly mistake was very clear for helping me unwind it.
I'm not sure if it learns from routes taken. In one trip I decided to divert twice from the suggested route because of things I wanted to see. For the return trip it proposed the route I'd taken.
The slight oddities. it's all metric and I don't see a method of changing to miles - not a major issue once you know. When it sets up a route it will give one verbal instruction and that's it, so you have to rely on the screen. If any one can say how to change this if be glad to know.
