This is the ONLY GPS app I use. I absolutely rely on this app for work-EVERY DAY. I wish there was more customization with the Favorites Folders, and I want to be able to customize the advisories, to toggle them on and off, individually. I appreciate the helpfulness, but at times it can be TOO helpful - Sometimes, I just want it to shut up - I don't care to know where every Frequent Animal Crossing is. I would gladly pay, as long as it is not a subscription, if it meant more premium features.

If you're in South Korea this is a MUST have. Just download it now. Update: There are some user experience gotchas with this app. First, the default mode for directions does NOT update your location on the map. It shows no updates! You can get it give GPS real time updates...how?? Click around randomly...I can't reliably repeat the behavior. This is bad. Second issue: naming places. On map hover menu, "add place" is PUBLIC places. Not what I would expect. Private locations are hidden. bad desig

Works well if you know Korean but English translation and English recognition still needs lots of work. The navigation is very weak and inaccurate when indicating multiple floors or levels. Needs much better navigation guidance notification. Completely lacking accurate turn by turn navigation guidance for walking and it doesn't even have route recalculation feature. Lots of guessing.
