By far the best navigation app anywhere! I have never had a misdirection or a wrong route or ended up in a field or a lake ever. I use this when I go on all my business trips, forget the navigation system in the cars, this outshines them all! Wish List: would like to have options for the computer voice, would also like to slow down the speed of the computer voice !

The new update is horrible. I never had a problem with the app, but after this atrocious redesign I'm looking for something else. The new routes aren't good. I've been off course a few times since the update. The app is now delayed, so if I'm looking at the map I'm a few seconds behind, which isn't helpful when trying to find a turn. I've missed multiple turns since the update. At night it used to go in dark mode, now it's bright white. Just awful. Ruined what was a really solid app.

Buggy!! Worked great when I first installed and prefer this over Google Maps. However, as time went on it would just freeze and stop working. Would not start back up even if restarted. Kinda defeats the purpose of having it installed. I have stopped using it because it is unreliable when I need it.
