Con Hasn't received a map update since early 2015
Maps are patchy and missing a lot of detail (that is available on other apps). The support forum doesn't reply to complaints about this.
Con No offline address data
It is not possible to locate an address if the device is unable to receive external data. This really limits the use of this app as an offline navigator as there is no way to access an address when offline.
Con Advertisement supported
The advertisements usually shown when the vehicle is at rest, and they cover the entire screen. There is no way to get rid of them, it's strictly a free ad supported app.
