More robust and less intrusive than other map apps, but privileges some regions of the country to others. I once had to contact them about an inaccurate maps in Houston, TX of all places!!! The one really painful failure is that it has no ability to download a route and/or maps, so as to navigate without pulling down data. We don't all have unlimited plans, folks! With that, and an occasional update of the maps (more than once every 3-4 decades!) I could abandon lesser apps.

I used to love this ap as I found it easier to navigate with and simple to set up. Now sometimes it is blocked over by ads, etc. Making it impossible to use. Could another map ap be doing that such as google maps? I am back to using and it is much easier. We moved to a different state and once it found out "home", I love it. Addendum: Sometimes we overshoot our destination and lose map directions. Have to look up address and re-enter to find the place (in the country).

I have been using this app for a long time. Recently when I punch in addresses it changes them. I use it to manage my route through the City for my job. The houses may be built or may be just a cleared lot but it's confusing when you click on the next closest place you need to go it is not the same address you punched in. I do not like the new change. I hope they fix this in the near future. The only other thing is I wish it would ask if you are sure you want to delete if you go back too far.
