Completely useless. If you can get a taxi at all, most of the time the drivers struggle to read street addresses in English or Korean..? Every single taxi experience involved us sitting and waiting for 5 mins for the driver to figure out where the map is pointing to... The app itself is buggy and laggy with navigation, and location information is more or less useless. We resorted back to Google Maps almost every time. Don't go without a translation app, and still you will struggle in South Korea

An absolutely essential app if you are driving in Korea since it now has an English interface. We drove the length of the country relying entirely on this to get around, would have been lost without it. Honestly I think it's probably even better than Google maps in the US, the interface is clear and uncluttered, and the spoken directions are accurate and timely. Warns of speed cameras (these are everywhere in Korea) and flashes red if you are over the limit when approaching a camera, and more.
