Used the app because Google maps kept suggesting that I take a route that was completely congested. This app suggested an alternate route using surface streets that bypassed the freeway congestion...which worked great until it was time to re enter the freeway and the entrance ramp was closed! The app wasn't aware of that. My trip took longer and was about 15 miles longer than if I had just stayed on the freeway in the first place.

This has been a superb app. Once in a while (read rarely) it is behind in newly built areas. But then, Florida is building so fast it's hard to keep up. I travel often to new areas. Some have just been built. So, occasionally, MapQuest MAY not have the new roads in their system. And some one had posted a review about ads blocking their view, I can only wonder where they downloaded the altered version. I have used this for over 25 years of being on the road and NEVER had ads.

Sometimes the voice doesn't give warning ahead far enough to turns and exits, but sometimes they're excellent. I'd like a little tweaking so they're all timely alerts! I do like the way I can get it through the bluetooth. Again the voice told me to turn when I was past the street. Not enough warning ahead. The distance is longer than actual. Many times. Review and change. Please! Voice is often too late for turns and estimates often not accurate. Again voice doesn't give accurate information.
