Where do I begin? The installation is insanely difficult. If this app weren't being shoved down my throat by Toyota, it would have ended right there. Even once I got the apps set up and paired to Bluetooth it's still a pain to actually get it working through USB as well, taking special attention every time I want to use it. Once it's actually working, it's not so horrible, but still lacks a number of features present in other mainstream GPS apps such and Google Maps and Waze. Shameful.

The only reason I downloaded this was because my 2020 Corolla required it. It's clunky at best. Half the time, the map is incorrect and the directions don't match. I tested it by having it try to take me home and it would have never gotten me there. It freezes often. The only redeeming trait is that I like having visual to help with directions. At that point, I might as well use another app and get a stand for my phone.

WARNING: this has a 3-year free trial. After that you have to pay $25 per year. I was not told that. Also, needs other voice options as I have trouble hearing the one provided while listening to music in the car because of her low voice tone. Also, not dependable in rural areas where phone signal can be interrupted....which disconnects everything. Also, sometimes the app cannot map an address. I put in an address in my state for a destination about 90 minutes away that has existed for many years
