Very good! It would be nice to have this app to have much more offline capability - like Sygic or My Trails. Why use a binocular icon for a camera? I use the dashboard almost every day during off road travels.

Crash 3 times... ...within the first hour of using the application. First time it crashed, I was trying to edit a route. The second time it crashed, I was doing a search for a city. And the third time it crashed, I was trying to edit a way point. These are simple basic functions for the software and it shouldn't crash within the first hour of use. Don't bother with the app. I sent the bug reports and uninstall the application.
