Ratings and Reviews
I had no issues utilizing this app in Korea. I was able to navigate my way in Seoul and Busan by using this app. Being able to read and type Korean is a plus, as all of the navigation is in Korean. My friends, however, were also able to use this app without knowing the language by tracking their locations and using the maps provided. Overall, great app for traveling through Korea!
English is just a plus. Even without the English options, it’s by far the best Navi to use. Most accurate ETAs and great at reconciling routes. Only reason it gets 4 instead of 5 is that there have been a few times the app has crashed one me. Normally I wouldn’t care, but while driving and using Navi...that can be pretty serious.
Pretty good if you can read some Korean
Pretty good app to use to get around Seoul. It has taxi, bus and subway routes that are pretty accurate and includes estimated costs. I think a person who can’t read Korean will have a slightly more difficult time using the app as the details are 70% in Korean.
