'Road-tested' the app alongside the VW in-built Sat Nav and it performed as well as, if not better. Well worth the additional payment of £4.50 for the advanced features and turning off the ads. Using it to plan road trip in New Zealand.
I love this app! When I'm in an area with no GPS signal; or Waze leaves me stuck in an unfamiliar area on the way to somewhere, MapFactor (with TomTom maps) was there for the rescue! One problem with the newest version is that I can't pay for and download the TomTom North American map bundle for Q4, 2017. It shows an icon that I already purchased it. The last time I purchased it was Q3, 2017. Is this a bug with the newest version of MapFactor? Thanks.
I am a long haul driver in North America and I use this app all the time to give truck routing. I bought the tom tom maps and they have not put me on a non-truck route even through major cities. When I go a different way or make a wrong turn it will re-route me without putting me on a non-truck route. It is absolutely the best app for truck routes. Also I just recently reformatted my tablet and mapfactor were very helpful in giving me the tools and instructions to activate the app so I could again use this app. Thank-you very much. A suggestion, currently when it gives instructions where to turn or go, just says at the next exit or in 1 mile turn right. It would be helpful if it could also give the street name/exit number and what the sign says at the exit. Another app I also sometimes use, does. But that one is a only for cars. Dan
Excellent app with many features, however it would be nice to be able to track one's way or to make it more easily accessible in case I overlooked it. Also, the odometer for measuring a journey's distance is badly implemented with no feedback when GPS is off and no button to stop the journey.
It's just work. Though sometimes it will take you to a farther route when going to a destination, your route going back is faster. And yet the second time you go to the same destination, it will give you already the best and fastest route. Still very useful though there's some learning curve needed.
Update: > The latest version as of early January 2018 caused problems on both my phone and tablet. Detailed maps disappeared and left me with only major roads. The navigation engine also seemed to have problems finding a solution for long journeys. I reverted back to the previous version and don't seem to have the same problem with street detail after clearing the app cache but routing a long journey still appears to be very slow. Otherwise still very good. < Very good in it's own right but even better when considering the functionality and cost (paid app & OSM maps here). I also use Copilot and, while it's very good as well, the map update schedule doesn't even compare. I also use the PC based version but the mobile version is much easier to use. I've seen people complain about the app and OSM maps but can't imagine why. Installing OSM maps has even added new life to several of my old Garmin handheld and mobile units. Everyone should applaud the hard work and incredible results offered to all of us by this team and those who make OSM maps available. Many here are too young to appreciate what is offered and the occasional shortcomings. Go buy a paper atlas and some gas station maps and rethink your complaints.
