Best feature is locally held maps that reduce data and speed warnings


Yeah but recognizes when you are on highway’s versus back roads and you can set your own speed limit of 15 mph on highways and 10 mph on back roads. It will give you an audible warning and all you have to do is let off the gas and save yourself that ticket (especially town backroads) where it goes from 45 to 30 mph while you are still doing 47mph. On top of that, unlike CarPlay (and those others mapping apps) these maps are ALL held locally so the only data being used is your location services of that little dot of where you are so there is little to no time at all to load Maps and little to no data usage. The 5th star might be missing out of ignorance for not know how to set a course that doesn’t involve your current location, but will let you and multiple destinations etc, just sometimes I want to see how far apart two locations are without one involving using my current location.

Best in Class


I have been using higher end navigation apps for iOS for more than 10 years. Between Google Maps, Apple Maps, Garmin apps and many other apps out there for navigation, this is hands-down the best one.

The user interface that is newly updated is beautiful and incredibly simple to use. It’s highly functional, and much better on the eyes compared to prior versions. Plus, all the extras of speed limits, traffic, 3-D views, etc. make this the best navigation app out there for iOS. Buy it without hesitation.

Stop Fixing What Isn’t Broken


This used to be my go-to navigation app. Not any longer. For whatever reason, they decided to “clean up” the map view. Want to know the name of the next turn? Tough. You’re lucky they’ll tell you how far away it is. Want to know if the next turn is left, right, or center? You’ll find out when you’re good and close, so no worry. Want to know if there are multiple, close turns coming up? You’ll find out once you’re at the intersection, and not one second before. If you needed all that information cluttering up their nice, clean design you’d be using another app! Which I am now. Shame, because these folks already have my subscription money.
