Ratings and Reviews
Best $12 I spent on my Australia trip!
Yes, it really does turn your phone into a GPS even without a data connection. Saved me a bunch of money not having to rent GPS units from rental car companies.
The app has its quirks - the user interface isn't very intuitive and takes a while to master. Speed limits in the app frequently did not match the posted numbers. Some locations of stores and restaurants in the app's data base are out of date. And the app once tried to tell me to drive my car on a bike trail. But the thing worked 99% of the time and was only $12 - a huge bargain. Now will you please develop a similar app for North America? Please?!?
Do Not Visit Oz Without It!
I recently returned to the States from a couple of weeks Down Under, and MetroView made a huge difference. Its accurate, clear audio direction made navigating Sydney's busy streets a relative breeze, leaving me more time to cope with my never-driven-on-the-left handicap. The map motion, lane guidance, speed zone and camera warnings as I travelled south through the Snowies were all timely and flawless.
Late one evening, I attempted to follow a paper map on what should have been a short, simple trip, and became hopelessly lost. After Sheila (as the pleasant female voice came to be known) rescued me and I was comfortably settled at my destination, I reviewed the side streets and roundabouts she led me through and was reassured to find she clearly found the best route.
The lack of local POI storage, even with data disabled due to int'l roaming, was scarcely an issue as I tended to plan and schedule in the evening when wifi was convenient.
Dollar for dollar, MetroView Australia is clearly among my most useful App Store purchases.
Awesome update and Service
There was a small (but vital to me) mistake in a local map image. I reported this to the Dev Team, who promised a fix with the next update. That arrived today along with my map fixed. What great service for an inexpensive option in this category.
