Good app, handy for pin pointing locations on a map but would be better if you could search first then pin point. It also drains my phone battery, even when the sat nav is turned off. I can't turn Bluetooth off as I have a smart watch aswell.
Nice idea, and would be very useful when travelling but when app is installed battery life of phone is killed. So completely unusable when travelling. Unfortunately had to uninstall whilst on holiday.
I thought this would be great to have for my gps for my trips home, getting the live traffic updates sent to the GPS, assisting with reroutes so I can get where I need to go avoiding the congestions. But no, that's not what this does. I haven't noticed a change in anything aside from me turning my Bluetooth on and it constantly being connected. I can connect my phone to a Bluetooth speaker without this app attempting to run in the background, knowing the GPS is no where near it and is turned off. The other complaint again is my phone being connected to the Bluetooth in my car. At first the GPS would have no notification for incoming calls, and adds this layer of static to the call. I can barely hear them and they can't hear me. Disconnected the Bluetooth between phone and GPS, phone calls sound normal. I had hoped that this would be great since I didn't purchase the traffic adapter for my GPS but instead it's a battery guzzeling, Bluetooth interferring nusence. I'm sad I have to install this but it's gotta go.
This app has been responsible for chewing through about 20% of my battery lately. It's gotten so bad that I had to remove location based permissions because it would leave my gps on for hours at a time when I haven't even used the app. Please fix this app! I want to use it with my Garmin GPS unit!
I really only use this app for hands free calling on my DriveSmart 51. I'm using a Moto G4 Plus. I don't have experience with the traffic portion, and I still want to try the Google pin drop features. It works well for calling. I do have a major beef, though. I hate that the Smartphone Link is active whenever the Bluetooth is on, whether the GPS is around or not. I get that it may be difficult to automatically sense the GPS but there's no reason this needs to be up all the time. I think you could do one of two things about this: 1. Make a setting that allows the user to disable the link when not near the GPS. 2. Just get rid of the notification icon. Honestly if I didn't have to see it all the time it probably wouldn't be an issue.
I started having problem with my vehicles Navigation system (which uses Garmin) ever since the recent update of this app (late May 2016). Very annoying and stupid! Please test your software!!!
