A comprehensive, easy to use programme
I'm looking to buy a used Audi A6 Avant, and find that this Parker's Guide lists every single model available (and there are loads), enabling a refinement down to the exact car I'm looking for.
It's easy to correct the price for mileage and options too, and prices are listed for Original/Franchise Dealer/Independent'Private Good & Private Poor.
This programme works perfectly on iOS 5 now; there is no need for Landscape since all the information fits neatly onto the Portrait view.
I've saved the info for about 5 cars I'm looking at, all listed under an "i" button and each ready to be viewed at the touch of a finger.
The only suggestion I have (and that would make 6 stars!), is it would be nice to be able to add a few notes to each entry.
This programme really is better than the magazine, and although it costs the same (£5.99), that is a one-off purchase, which is updated monthly thereafter at no extra cost.
Prices way out & doesn't show full vehicle name
As previous users mentioned, you cannot see the full vehicle name & type, so not really designed for names that might extend beyond one screen width, which most do, so far from 'all sorted' as previous review. Yes, well done, it no longer bombs out under iOS5, so it took a few months to fix that.
Also, models limited, e.g. no entry for Alfa Romeo 2.4 JTDM Sportwagon (or saloon) Q4
Also totally inaccurate pricing, if you have a VW T5 California 2006 with 40k miles, 174BHP 4Motion for sale in good condition for £21k I will buy it off you right now! True prices something around £30-£34K, especially for the 4Motion four wheel drive. One does wonder where they get their pricing data for more unusual cars, finger in the air?
Once one finds one result that is so clearly out, it is difficult to believe anything it says.
Finally sorted :-)
Works fine on ios5 you just have to add a new car rather than editing saved ones they really seem to have sorted this app out now only thing is some of the text is missing when searching for the vehicle it's not difficult to work out which one is yours tho and when you press next it comes up the body style you have selected so you know if it's right or wrong apart from that it's great
