Was replied to that there was an update with improvements from support so I tried again. Nope. Worse now. Map won't do any routes on main I-4 Hwy Tampa to Orlando. Keeps trying to force me off the road. Avoid Hwys is turned off in options so the route info is correct but the GPS is getting less intelligent constantly. Car is always way behind on maps. Did a test and parked my car. GPS showed me 5 houses down from where I was. STILL NO NIGHT MODE!

I have only once been misled by this app and it was because I made the mistake by putting "street" instead if "road" in the destination. For someone like me who wants navigation and as few frills and distractions as possible it's great the way it is right out of the gate. You can change your settings to avoid tolls, stay on main roads, or even avoid traffic accidents or construction. Very helpful.

Very basic & info does not appear to be updated. Although certain roads are open with no delays, the app seems to think the road does not go through the whole way, so has me making turns to avoid one small section of the road, & get back onto it about 1/2 mile further down! When I could just go straight thru. Also, doesn't give me much of a heads up on delays coming up.
