Some important details we need to let you know:
• When installing the app, make sure your phone is connected to a stable Wi-Fi network.
• Never let the navigation instructions interfere with your driving.
• Some maps may need large amounts of available storage. Please check your phone storage management for details.
• When using Karta GPS while driving, never hold the phone on your hands. Place it on a standard holder, with a clear sky view.

Overall I like the look and feel of the app. So far it's proved to be both useful and unreliable. Tried it on the way back home just to test it. It got me out of an unfamiliar area without issue. Unfortunately, as I approached my destination it began suggesting completely inappropriate routes - in fact at one point it suggested exiting the freeway and traveling a few blocks and making a u turn. Perhaps there's an issue with the map data. Or it isn't completely compatible with Pie.

Switched from NaviUSA after Google stopped supporting its location queries. Karta seems to do a great job independent of Google Maps. The User Interface is intuitive, voice directions work well, too. The map updates are fluid, even on my old Samsung Note II. I've been using it for a couple months now and I'm, generally, very satisfied. However, there are a few problems. The only major one is that the router sometimes seems "unstable" -- it detours off the main road onto side streets. This certainly does not save time. Perhaps is saves a few feet of distance. The app has few tuning parameters -- for instance, I can't find any option to instruct the router to weight time over distance minimization. Other minor issues are: 1) Even with "night mode" disabled, the app will switch to it inside a tunnel. (even in daytime) 2) Battery usage goes up after running the app, even after exiting it. This can be avoided by "force exitting" or otherwise killing the app. 3) It would be nice if it took the direction the car was facing into account when first routing. (if a compass is available)

Maps appear to be complete but attempting to navigate to locations on the map are problematic. In my case, typing in a specific address left the app dumbfounded and unable to comply. The best it could do was provide me with a location nearby. Map rendering is attractive but there is no satellite overlay available. The app has potential in my mind, but it's not quite ready to replace Google Maps.
