A decent Navi app with a little thing off

I have tried different offline map navigation app, and this is by far the best I have found in my opinion. I don’t need to pay some sort of “premium” for some unworthy features like traffic or lane assistance (like Sygic). Or there might be some commercial popping up when I need to navigate. It really is free and easy to use.

The only problem I have encountered so far is that it sometimes guides me to frontage road and back to freeway when there is no heavy traffic or accidents along the freeway. That’s really bizarre. This could be misleading in some ways. The developer team need to find out why it happened and fix it. Because it would cause unnecessary wasting time.

Teetering on the brink of greatness.

As someone who likes to drive for fun, Magic Earth is phenomenal. The combination of topo data with satellite imagery looks stunning on my carplay display, and makes finding winding hillclimbs and valley switchbacks a joy. It is so close to being all-conquering I don't want the following criticism to dissuade anyone from trying it. Download it. It's stunning. That said...

There are some minor things that drive me nuts:
- I can't access the settings menu while plugged into carplay. Yeah safety etc but even while stationary I can't seem to, for example, change map type without un-carplaying and going to the menu.
- The route numbers on roads are TINY! The road names are a squiggly font. Not readable.
- I wish it could store more data on my device for using satellite and topo map. I have a top end iPhone, I'd happily assign 50gb to this app but alas, it is capped at like... 3gb? It's not 2012 anymore.
- A real-time compass would be welcome. Not just showing "N" when you are going north, but a proper compass. Compasses are good.

Top1 in Class

I have been using this company’s navigation in nearly 20 countries and 6 United States since 2007 (Route66, Navigate and finally Magic Earth). The good part is the city center and suburban roads selected by the application are always reasonable and had the best views in a touristic road trip. It is the excellent and number 1 application for navigation. I wish Safety Lens could be used without extra hardware with only camera and internet connection.
