Absolutely intrusive with the ads. The ads do have sound. Completely non intuitive app. What's with the longitude and latitude? Who in the world would ever use that? Why is it I can't just type in my address, type in my desired destination, and hit start? I wasted 20 minutes trying to figure this out. Could be something if you would just simplify it. Get rid of ads with sound. Get rid of ads period. Every click is an ad and that's #1 reason Uninstalled and not worth figuring out.

Although this app has some issues, I give it 5 stars because it is the best of its kind and very useful to me. Most of the time, it does work. The ads are annoying but I have learned to live with them. Most of the time you can minimize how many you get by restarting as seldom as possible. On some phones with only 2 GB of RAM, it crashes more often than I would like. Not sure if I should blame the app. Here are some features that I find especially useful: 1. favorite locations 2. routes 3. import/export of GPX 4. save and restore app database *** My biggest complaint is the lack of documentation on how to use the app. I wasted a lot of time figuring out things like how to export a GPX. I'm still not happy with how to create routes. Another annoying thing is how the app always re-displays the joystick if you start or stop a route. I wish it were possible to hide the joystick in overlay mode and toggle it from the app if I need the joystick, which is seldom. Most of what I do is jump to favorites or run routes.

Works great, I just wish the ads were a little less intrusive. Any time you start or stop you get a full screen ad that you can't skip for 5 to 15 seconds. I don't mind banner ads or full screen ads you can skip, but the crappy phone game ads are the worst. Not really the developers fault though, they gotta pay the bills. The app itself does everything I need it to.
