A Google user: “Great app. It's a bit confusing at the beginning but I loved it after learning how to use. The information are accurate.

I would highly recommend this app. You will pay $5-7 per route but it worth.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Downloading the French Route doesnt seem to be possible for some people, including me and a couple of people ive met along tbe way. It loads 97% of the way and then stalls. Edit: I changed from a 1 to 5 star rating after I figured out how to download the maps. For some reason I couldn't download it the multiple times I tried in France or Spain, but randomly decided to turn on my VPN and spoof that I was back home in the USA. For some reason that worked.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Tall Tom San Diego: “I first downloaded the free version and because it didn’t provide details in facilities (restaurants/hotels) I upgraded to Premium version. It was not worth it. The premium version, while giving some outdated and incomplete facility information is actually hard to use. You can use its ID number then find ID number on map. But you can’t click on map ID number to get facility information. I found the Camino overlay on google maps helpful but it blocks access to any other google information like cafe’s, hotels, and other useful information. So I would have to exit app and go to google maps manually. A lot of unnecessary steps. Why? So the only use of this application is to help you not get lost. Limited usefulness.” – 2/5 in App Store
