Customer Reviews

A Great Program!

I have spent hundreds of dollars on various programs, and I must say that this is one of the programs that I consider to be money well spent. It came so handy when I found myself in unfamiliar places and I had to find something quickly. It always came to my rescue! Great program. Thank you!

Another FAILED app update

What compels so many devs take a great app and ruin it in their "updates???" This app WAS awesome, incredibly inclusive in its ability to search on an extremely broad-yet-customized scale. This was an easy 4-5 star app.
Now the UI is muddled, counterintuitive, and basically annoying. The results are unclear, the customization is so bogged down, it doesn't feel like customization at all.
My advise:
Cut your losses and go back to the previous version!!
:/ DAH

Use this almost exclusively to search

I love the flexibility of this app. It has so many good features and I like the ability to decide at the time of navigation whether I want to use apple or waze for directions.
I find places in this app that google and Apple don't have locations for. Priceless.
