Well, first of all, it work with my Alcatel 5042t, which is more that I can say about Google Maps (broke the GPS a few updates ago). I like the interface, it tells you the speed limit, your current speed (if greater that the speed limit) and local temp. If I may request a couple of features, please make it possible to output the turn by turn instruction through the phone's speaker if I am connected to Bluetooth. Also, it would be great if you could change the actual color theme, not just the icons. The theme is good, but I would not mind more variety.
Long time user Directions are easy to follow and usually up to date. Alternate routes are great for planning especially during road maintenance and bypassing an accident. The voice prompts are too slow so I keep it off to avoid risky driving. All of the different layers are more clutter than usefull; otherwise, I would rate this app 5+.
Good app. Until I got a notification bar ad. Sorry guys but I'll pass up on any app that populates my notification bar with ads, even if its directly relevant to the app. An ad does not deserve space on a notification bar. If I have any interest in this Summer Friday thing, I'll see it within the app, period. Thanks anyway.
Updates! Broke my rule and updated. Totally worthless now. Doesn't anybody get fired anymore? You'd think a programmer would test before release. Randomly shuts down. Randomly freezes my phone. This is the only program I updated and the failures began immediately. 5 stars when it's back to it's former glory.
Mapquest I used to love it, however for some reason it now won't stay on! It constantly cuts off after about 2 min of being on & I'm having to constantly restart it. It's ridiculous now. Please fix this problem immediately!!!
Closes down every few seconds Love site on computer but not phone app. Phone app shuts down every few seconds up to a couple minutes when giving directions. Have to open back up and enter info again to access directions. Even for a short trip is multiple times.
New features and improvements:
• Speed limits can be deceiving. We now indicate whether you’re in a school zone and show speed guidance for things like ramps and turns!
• See the route ahead of you in 2.5D with our new Perspective View (a more realistic map view)! It's hard to explain so just see for yourself. It'll be worth it and you can always turn it off in the Settings.
• Need to know how far away somewhere is? We’re now showing the distance to your location in the info sheet!
