Garmin tells you what the app can do, but doesn't tell you how to do it. Todqy, quite by accident, I discovered that starting a call on my smart phone while the GPS is on automatically transfers the call to the GPS screen and speaker. Great! But why isn't there a manual or sheet of instructions that tells the user that it will do that? It would be even neater if I could voice dial; but how? Can I end a call by voice? Can I adjust volume while talking? If I'm driving, what happens when the GPS wants me to take an exit or make a turn? What else will it do, and how can I do it? How about a menu on the GPS screen, or my phone screen?
Decent! This app is stable, works well. It syncs well with my phone for hands-free calling. I use the trucking GPS all day. ***Please add option to 'search' contacts. Not simply list them in order of distance from my location.*** Also, Please increase map resolution at higher zoom levels. Roads all disappear once you begin to zoom out. ***
Wants a credit card on account to open app Tried to open the app but it pops up a box complaining about my Google Play account (I don't keep a credit card tied to it) and reminding me that premium services are paid services. Then it minimizes the app. So much for the free services that go with my Garmin GPS.
Doesn't do the job Often require manual off and on the phone's bluetooth connection in order to sync with Drive Assist. Frequently shows 'no traffic ahead' while in the middle of a jam. And now can't see the traffic map at all. I get 'Application error' message instead.
Needs some serious improvement App wont display maps when zooming in. Data is very out of date. Sporadically opens when not requested. Bought the high end GPS unit so to use the functionality of this app. Will seriously be reconsidering buying another Garmin product if this doesn't improve soon.
Auto connect annoying It's annoying how the app tries to connect automatically all the time even when you aren't near your satnav. It would be perfect if only you could connect it manually. You can do this but as soon as you lock your phone, it disconnects it again. What's the point? All I want is to be able to connect manually then lock my phone and get on with my life.
We have further improved the stability of the app. Enjoy your drive!
