Please also install the watchface from the Pebble App Store.

- Hit down button: Turn-by-turn arrow + map
- Hit middle button: Pops up a menu for zoom, grayscale and GPS controls. Keep hitting middle to rotate through and/or dismiss

Map depth: Black&White, Grayscale, or color

Walking and driving directions

Optional buzzes to alert you to upcoming turns

Address book integration

Control zoom level and map depth from the watch

Built-in battery saving techniques:
- Phone GPS shuts off after a few minutes if not using the watchface.
- Intelligent background updating to minimise CPU time in the background (iPhone 5 or later)


Please note:
Unless you are running in an LE-only mode (such as Pebble Round), you can only have one third-party iOS app talking to your Pebble at once.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
MapsGPS uses data to download maps and directions. A wifi or cellular connection to the internet is required.
Turn-by-turn directions is available in most countries, but not completely worldwide - please see this list to see if your country is supported: https://www.apple.com/au/ios/feature-availability/

Ratings and Reviews

Does not work

Pebble DJW

It looked like a useful app but does not work. It does not connect to Apple Maps. When I try connect to a contact, the app crashes. If I type in a location, such as a restaurant the app does not find it. If I type an address the app finds it sometimes, but does not display on my Pebble.

A waste of my money.

Poor connection

Olind75

The app and watch often lose connection with each other, and will not reconnect. Once GPS was stopped I could never get it to start again. I also was never able to get the watch/app to refresh past the first direction.

Could be great

V3.7

Compass view could be more intuitive.
