A good app. But, back to Google maps. After updates, SD CARD storage option bombs the app. It totally freezes. Had to reboot. Well, back to Google maps. I like Windows phone 8.1 version better. The voice guide (us, street name) is much more humanistic than Android version. I kept an Windows phone just to use the app.
A lot of crashes occurred recently. First I couldn't start any route cos' crash was making an app stop. Reinstalled I am not able to choose external memory as default or download a new voice. This makes this app quite useless.
It would be perfect if the collection between the online and the mobile app is sync properly both ways (it was sync first time only once) . Update Cached Map doesn't seem to work. It always fails at 77% and retry doesn't work either. Retry fails straight away.
I've used this app for years on my WP8 Nokia. The android version has some welcome additions, but what it lacks is HFP for Bluetooth connection in the car so it can interrupt radio or CD as it does on WP8. The addition of this would make the app market leading. I've downloaded a 3rd party app - Audio BT that does the job, so it's technically possible, but the app isn't well developed and in any case it would be much better integrated into Here WeGo as a settings option.
I had to revise my five-star review because somehow after an update, the option to add waypoints is missing. This is very inconvenient, if not even dangerous. Also it doesn't sync routes saved from the web (would be very useful), and does hide many alternative routes
Biggest advantage is offline navigation and with accuracy. But sometimes the app is very slow to acquire a fix. This I have observed on same device and had to switch over to Google maps. The benchmark is Google maps and this comes in after it. Compared to Google maps, it is not easy to send in map corrections.
