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) and can't do anything other than local which is useless. Need toggle switches to enable/disable options for smartlink. Wish they sort features out and get routing working
Updated: a lot of bugs fixed. However, it still does not retain settings correctly. For example like many users I have my phone connected to the car Bluetooth but need the GPS to talk to it as well. It continually hijacks the phone despite being 'told' not to.
30 minutes difference. Google maps gave a more accurate arrival estimate. Garmin showed no traffic or traffic after I was in it. Garmin arrival time would increase slowly or it jumped instantly after. This seemed to happen after a Garmin software 2 days ago. Shouldn't this app supply my Garmin with traffic data as fast as Google Maps?
I really want to love this app but it so often leaves me frustrated on the side of the road. All I want is to send locations and routes from Google Maps to my Garmin Zumo 595. I'd say I get failed messages 85% of the time. Then later it sometimes appears anyway. Should be easy and instant. No glitchy. Sad really as I still have to use it.
Used to work. Now there is no way to get it communicating with my Sony Xperia X anymore... I wonder if I can get refund for my in app purchases...?
Smartphone link no longer works on Z3. Seriously, big bucks paid for travel reports and it's useless! If only it 'paired' reliably... I've tried so many suggestions on the web on how to do a 'reliable' Bluetooth connection, but none are that great. From complete shutdowns of mobile and sat-nav, unpairing, cache clears, uninstalls, stating one before the other, lots of others, different mobile and even factory resets, nothing seems to correct the 'SmartLink Failed' message. The firmware on all the devices is up to date, it's a nightmare! I spend more time getting this right than I do driving sometimes! Any suggestions would be appreciated... But, when it IS working it works like a charm, there just seems to be a different method of connecting it each time, sometime it's as simple as turning Flight mode on/off, other times it's forget/pair, other times it's a uninstall/reinstall on the mobile. This is the only Bluetooth app that gives this problem, headphones, motorcycle intercom, OBD, file transfer and others, all fine, even multiple devices, fine, it's just this one app. Please find a reason and a fix...
We have further improved the stability of the app. Enjoy your drive!
