Absolutely useless app. The routes do NOT match the reality on the ground. I just tried to use it and it isn't aware of several multi-year, massive construction sites that obliterate the PCN routes.

It is certainly useful when it comes to navigating around Singapore, however with regards to the trails in nature reserves, it would be pleasant if it could indicate the available routes and those that are prohibited from the public.

This app is extraordinarily not user friendly. The password requirements to look up a walking trail arr too cumbersome n security is more troublesome than banking app. Looking up the trail is difficult as you can't zoom in much n landmarks n Street names are frequently missing. Use Google maps n save yourself aggravation
