PLEASE NOTE: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Navmii will turn into a sleep mode and stop consuming battery power if you run it in the background and haven't driven for a while. GPS will be completely off during the sleep mode.

(PLEASE READ) Questionable Privacy...
I've been using navmii for a fair while now and it's defiantly my preferred navigation solution for iOS, as its navigation system is brilliant.
The v3 update brings a sleek new look to the app, brining it more in line stylistically with modern apps, but I feel there is a major issue, I'm concerned about my privacy.
Every app now is obsessed with 'sharing' and 'connecting' with other people and Navmii is no exception, but not always in a good way. It give the option for users to share helpful information like traffic and accidents location and provides real time data. But... And it's a BIG but... Navmii by default collect information like % time speeding, harsh acceleration and hard cornering (which is fine for ME to see) and shares it publicly... That's not cool!
It does (at least I think) give the option to turn the sharing off (it's called 'go invisible' (My Navmii > Edit > Go Invisible)) but the fact that this is on by default, there is no 'choice' when updating the app, and that the off switch seems somewhat hidden, is making me think that my personal information about my driving is now publicly available.
I don't want this app to be a public telekinetic box, I want it to be a sat nav, which is what it was so good at, I hope this new system won't make me look for another solution.
Used to be amazing, now it's appalling
The original reason I got this was for a STANDALONE nav app that didn't require internet connection it was also very fast from start up, to searching, to navigating. Now, even though you have the maps, you can't do a search for a destination without Internet connection. And it can take 5-10 minutes with poor connection, so it case of sitting and waiting in your car, and trying decide if it's not going to do it, or just taking ages. I live up North and unless your near a large town or city there is often mile after mile of Internet black spots.
Useless, If I need Internet I might as well use a different app like Google, its much faster and much clearer.
To many crap features, to many rubbish options, it used to be simple, fast and standalone and now it barely functions without good net, defeating its own purpose, there are other Internet dependant apps that do the same thing better and faster while requiring less storage space.
Compared to other navigation offerings, this one is an absolute bargain for £0 without speed cams. Although I'm told it's coming in the next update, there is currently no option to use a contact to select a destination. I'm also trying to figure out if it can create the HFP ( hands free profile ) to allow me to listen to my cars radio and just give directions via Bluetooth as necessary whilst muting the radio ) I understand that Apple maps can currently do this, it would be a nice addition here. Apart from the couple of niggles, great app and in my mind, best of the free navigation apps.
