Brad Logan: “I've used this app for years and absolutely loved it. Now, it doesn't give audio directions when I'm driving. Volume is all the way up, it's not muted it's set to louder, doesn't matter if it with or without Android Auto, doesn't matter if it's speak through Bluetooth or not. I uninstalled it, reinstalled it. Restarted my phone. Cleared it cache and storage. Still, no voice directions” – 3/5 in Play Store

lafaaz syed: “I'll begin by stating that Google Maps, ever since November 2023, has been the most used app on my phone, mainly for browsing places and for looking at my timeline. However, as of the latest update, the timeline aspect got messed up in three ways: routes of travel displayed incorrectly, distance stats saying I traveled for 0 feet, even if I did go places, and the method of travel also messed up (just says moving). Unless this issue is resolved, I think this app will suffer a fall from grace.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Overall nicely made game that's easy to enjoy. Good balance between challenge and progression with a nice backup for earning additional credits. Decent availability for customization. Would be neat to switch between 1st and 3rd person view to witness the full splendour of your iron steed. Curviture of the road and more realistic sounds would be a significant improvement as well. Visuals and animations are satisfying for both newer and older devices. I'm still playing it so it must be good lol.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Awesome graphics! I've never seen anything like it! It's so smooth and realistic. The crash animation is funny of how you fly off but that is also realistic. I like the speed you can go to. 1 thing recommended though. There should levels where you turn and go into another street and levels with you going down and uphill. I've been so hooked that I actually played this game since begining of this year! Keep on working with those animations and graphics!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Guthrie Abbott: “I gave Sygic a poor review several years ago, but the developers have since radically improved the app. It's nice to be able to navigate without needing a data connection. The 3D map view is easy to read, and the turn lane view is excellent. The app still tells me to 'go straight ahead' way too often, and I'd like to pick a more natural-sounding voice, but these are nitpicky issues. My actual rating is 4.5 stars, but Google doesn't allow half-star increments.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Eric Townsend (Fr. Mark): “My biggest frustration is with the menu while using this with Android Auto: I cannot get it off the screen when not navigating to a destination. There's is never a clean screen to look at. I've been using this for years & it lacks the polish that Google has. I have been reinstalling it a few times per year to see if it's improved but unfortunately this paid product still cannot compete with the free ones. It has potential, but it's untapped.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Matt K: “This is an excuse to have you watch ads. Once you get past the tutorial the ads start and the puzzles don't get any harder. Banner ad at the bottom lags the game. Each lvl takes maybe a minute to complete and between each is an ad. Many of the ads are 4-5 screens each with a timer. 20 seconds each may not seem long but do the math and that's over a minute of ad(not including load time for playable part). Had promise, too bad not fulfilled.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Haiku Mama: “Designed for 8-10 year olds. I agree with a previous reviewer that you're playing against bots. Based on no responses from the developers, I would have to conclude this is true. It doesn't matter what time you play, the 2 players below you will be playing at the exact same time. The levels that are labeled "super hard" are not if you are older than 10. Legend status does not give you a higher level of difficulty either. A cute game in the beginning, but it quickly becomes mundane.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “The app is nice. I seem to be accurate. The is a few annoying thing. There should be an option to save the map to the external memory card. it takes to much memory. Seems to somethings pick the nears intersection, when saving a location. Points of interest is basicly useless. I dont understand, where they come from. I took me on a toll road, even though I had the option set to not do that. It would be nice, if miles would be expressed in decimal 10th miles, instead of fractions.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Updated 5/31: (3rd year on this app) Every year before my subscription runs out I try out the competition. For an entire week I try the standard Google Maps, Waze, then GoPilot, Mapquest, Navi, and some others. The gap between the competition has slimmed a lot this year. TomTom has done little in what I seen in added functionality or fixes. The biggest thing that sets this GPS apart is the ever changing traffic meter. There are two other apps that I know that have this but doesn't offer much detail and neither suggest new routes with new bad traffic ahead. I'm changing my review to 4 stars instead of 5. The gap between the competition is slim. I think the UI is still clunky from the days of hardware GPS. Searching for places is not very good and get addresses from your contacts seems to never work. I also question their map routing. I drive the same time and it seems it suggest a route that isn't the best. Please start making improvements or you guys will be losing sales.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Pretty good app outside of GMaps. Wish it was more intuitive. The search function for a general business is much better on Google as it automatically finds the nearest "McDonald's", for example, if searched. Also, the input address fails if u wait too long before hitting "drive", i.e. system requires to retype address u just put in. I also wish there was a way to diminish the volume of the navigator while listening to a YouTube lecture for example--she interrupts the lecture.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “This is an update. I originally gave it only one star due to installation issues. The app seems to work pretty well when Google maps fails. Still a little slow at times : It will tell me to turn at a street that I just passed, for example. Other than that, a pretty good app. Also, the "female" voice giving audible directions could be a bit more pleasant sounding.” – 4/5 in Play Store

The Klatch: “Was going to give it 3 stars, until it locked up with 21 miles left on a 500+ mile trip. Passed our exit and had to back track 7 miles. Needs some adjustments. Notifications (multiples sometimes) go off when switching app on Android Auto. Does not resume when you stop at a rest area. Data connection lost covers speedometer. X to cancel navigation should have a confirmation prompt, twice we lost our navigation and had to wait for signal before we could resume. no adding stops or waypoints :(” – 2/5 in Play Store

Jose Ruiz: “Very nice. It does remind me a lot of Waze, in the very best way with real-time speed, and reporting. However, It does not have a way to report police presence like Waze. Essentially, the gimmick of Waze is that you could potentially look ahead at speed traps so you don't get a ticket... But in the big picture, the feature is really is about safety. #1 Encouraging drivers to drive a reasonable speed. #2 moving over to give police space on the shoulder in highways which is law in some states.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Excellent Navigation Software! While it is not as feature rich as Waze or GMaps (it does have an active traffic service) It's main feature is that it requires no data service to function as all the mapping is locally stored. This may make the maps a little less current as far as stores and locations but if you need to get from point A to point B and you have a limited data package or bad reception to cell towers this app is a life saver. Missing Android Auto support though.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I've been using CoPilot for several years. It suits my needs, the price is reasonable, maps are updated frequently. I spend too much time in areas without cell service. Having the maps loaded on my device is a life saver. I seldom rate products and I'm one who thinks there is always opportunity for improvement so nobody should ever receive more than four stars.

Ken: “I've used the free version of this app for years and it's great for weight stations and parking info. I tried the diamond version for navigation and it wask acward and difficult. Even adding a stop are more difficult than most apps and GPS units. The ETAs are about an hour off. There's a setting to decrease or increase it by percentage, but it doesn't work. On a 60 mile stretch of big road it had 3 turns ahead as if there was a split ahead, but they were just cross roads. Not worth $230 a year” – 2/5 in Play Store

Justin B.: “The blue "P" icons have gotten completely out of hand. Most of them are NOT legal truck parking. They clutter the screen so you can't click on the real truck stops. You can zoom in but then you can't see where you're going and even more useless icons pop up (fuel, tire, etc). You can filter them but then you have to leave the filter UI open while driving. It's a clunky frustrating mess. If you only park in legal designated truck parking then Hammer is a much better app for finding parking.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Extremely helpful and informative and very straight forward. . I've found the app to be an invaluable aid especially when used in conjunction with my navigation apps and has saved me a lot of abortive driving.

A Google user: “Hi I really like the idea of the App. I would give it 5 but I give it a 3 because it doesn't seem to be updated as often. Today I5 was closed I checked the app and it was reported as closed however the freeway opened at 2pm. This was also updated on the caltrans website but not the app this caused me waste 3 more hrs thinking it was still closed. The quickmap is supposed to be used as a travel guide hence I'd never use it if it's not up to date.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Easier to use than the website, and more information. Just being able to see which rest areas are closed or open is worth the download time. Getting conditions for where you are when it opens is super convenient for those of us who don't live in metro areas.” – 5/5 in Play Store
