I switched from the TomTom navigation device to this app on my phone and I must say, this works much better than the 'stand alone' device. The phone's hardware and software, such as touch screen technology and GPS accuracy, wins big time and updating the maps is much easier and faster. Too bad you can only use it for a few kilometers a month with this free app.
Why no homescreen shortcuts? Every other navigation app has the option to add a shortcut to your homescreen for frequent destinations. Why would you not add this as it means driving to your destination with one click of the homescreen rather than the hassle of searching your points of interest? Very disappointing and an obvious error from a paid for app. Also the new feature "long press the app icon" doesn't make sense..
App crashes every time it updates. Currently it states unable to connect to the TomTom servers for 4 days. I've performed every bit of troubleshooting imaginable and it still doesn't work. There are posts on Google going back as far as 2014 about the same issue and TomTom won't take responsibility for something that is clearly their issue. Would not recommend to anyone, totally unreliable
I've used the app since it was first released and have found it to be very useful both at home and abroad. The ability to install a map of a country you intend to visit and then navigate around like a local, with traffic updates included, is brilliant. The voice instructions are very clear and natural too. The problem, and it's a big one, is the voice instructions frequently stop working. The only solution for this is to uninstall and reinstall the app. This means that the maps have to be downloaded too.
This was my favourite app and now it will not even load. Keeps coming up with errors or will just sit there loading and going no further. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall did not work, tried to restart the phone it did not work. Either fix the app or give me a refund as i do not want to pay for an app i cannot use. Please advise why you have not responded to me. I paid a lot of money to use this app and now it is useless
You may have noticed I have Uninstalled and reinstalled several times. Overall I like the app and have relied on TOM TOM standalone GPS in my car. The only issue is that ....and I've tried a couple of voices.....the voices don't finish saying navigation, they cut out before finishing. I have other GPS apps installed, and other issues with them. I have a Note 3, just wondering what could be the matter?
