Work needed I suspect other users r correct, I doubt Garmin even read the reviews however, I'll reiterate what others say app needs an off/on toggle. Integration could be better. Traffic information is not as precise as it should b! It showed a main road as closed when it is just a side street.
in-app weather and parking works fine. PhotoLive and Fuel subscriptions not available in the UK. Subscriptions over-ride built-in features of the PND (ie traffic, camera) - location search doesn't work (can't find UK postcodes). Need toggle switches to enable/disable options for smartlink
Useless. After installation, it said it could not find a Google account on my phone and closed the app...no way around it. I have a Nexus phone...a GOOGLE phone...and Yes! I do have a Google account. I can't even say if I like the app or not...it's not letting me use it.
I was a little concerned after reading all the negative reviews but it works well for me. Pairs quickly and easily with both my Zumo 595 and Nuvi 2789. My only complaint is that it's a battery hog and it's kind of a pain to go in to settings/optimize battery performance and uncheck both of the boxes. Then reverse back out. It would be much better if there was an off/off switch on the main screen. If it had that, or some other way to minimize battery use when not connected to a device, I'd have given 5 stars.
Worked ok until recent update. Now everytime it connects to Kenwood 4230dab unit it completely freezes user interface and none of the control buttons or touch screen works!! Would expect lot better from Garmin...
You have to have an app that allows you to use it. So this app is useless. Don't waste your time I don't believe the people who created it is wasting anymore of theirs on it from what I'm reading.
We have further improved the stability of the app. Enjoy your drive!
