The initial screen is now 3D instead of 2D map mode, but luckily there is an option to put it to back to 2D mode as it was before as indicated by General Magic: 1) pan the map (i.e. touch the map with one finger and drag it a little bit) to exit the 'follow GPS' mode. 2. Use the two fingers gesture to change the map perspective to 2D: touch the map with two fingers in the upper part of the screen and drag towards the bottom. 3. Close the app and restart it: it will open in 2D mode. What I really like in the new Magic Earth Pro is the option to create a route with multiple destinations easily. Really needed that. The problem with the unstable speed is solved enough: +/- 1 km/h at 130 km/h is acceptable One smaller request is still open: be able to see intermediate arrival times when planning intermediate destinations in the right hand corner, not only of the final destination. There is a major problem: In navigation mode at the beginning it sometimes looses all sense of direction (very fast rotating) and thus is not able to give good guidance. The problem seems to be a bad calibrated compass of the phone.
The app was Route 66 and after an awful change to Magic earth pro the team have worked hard to iron out issues taking it back into being a very useable sat nav. I would like to see a quicker way of starting navigation to a favourite.. not sure why I need to select home.. watch the map zoom in then have to select that point and say navigate.. have it show me the route and then need to push start. Am I missing a way to just get on with it directions?
It used to be a really fast app.But with the recent updates it got really slow, freezes when I download new maps and opens a lot slower then it used to years ago when I purchased it. Developers...what is going on, have a look into this please.
Not all countries covered. My home country is not there 😡
Really like the New Nav. Update (6-7-17); especially its organization of options and the ability to turn off that Nav.-AutoStart which I had issues with when more time is needed for thought of an appropriate selection; which its now available with conditions (Great)! • I prefer the Map Data downloaded & hope to know what's the exact, absolute differences between the two; as when Mobile Data is used instead? • Hope that the "Map Layer" button also becomes organized as the Settings; 'General catagories leading into their Specific, Subcategories' Very Good Organizational Improvement of Settings & the Additional options (added), based on various types of conditions! • During Nav., both of the little dots that reveal "mi. or mph" & the "min. remaining or E.T.A" (toggles), should be more visible, either; larger, fluorescent or both!
