HTC Droid DNA 4G-LTE Cool GPS/compass app! We've all seen our share of GPS apps that can do the same or similar functions compared to other apps. But I must declare this app as one of the best GPS/compass apps I've tried in a long time. Cool features are built into this app that you wont find in any other apps like it (or not as good). Bug fixes and improvements are being worked on as we speak, and GPS Essentials is no toy for avid hikers. It's more of an extension of your senses and calculations to help you get un-lost!
Needs better documentation - hard to use app Had a hard time navigating as the help files are pretty much non-existent within the application. Google Play Store video of this application is a demonstration on how to place a waypoint. Not much help when trying to figure out how to set routes by using your way points. This application needs better documentation. Lots of bells and whistles but FAR from user friendly.
Unusable Constant crashes and lag, slowing phone's performance from the moment I first opened the application. Probably terribly inefficient programming done by inexperienced programmers with little or no pre-release testing. Beyond that, the app is completely unable to obtain my gps location. At all. It didn't ever even make an attempt. Samsung galaxy S5
Unable to quit Does what I want which is read and navigate to way points from GPX file. I am unable to quit the application when I am done using it however. I still have the tracking and navigating ribbons in my status bar. I also need to be able to connect an external Bluetooth GPS module like Garmin GLO
Great for walking,driving boating and flying Seamless and impressive..perhaps a weather link would be a good addition too.
Buggy navigation I want to navigate to one of my markers but it keeps trying to navigate to a different mark and then keeps telling me that I have "arrived" at a separate point (which I was not currently located at). It's better than nothing but the app is really quirky
