Top Tips
• Unable to obtain address from the Internet? Assuming you've got good Internet access, keep trying repeatedly. Failing that, please try rebooting your device - I'm not joking! There's a known issue with the Google Maps API used to access the address and a reboot sometimes resolves the issue.

simple and easy to use but location setting needs improvement: select from map and ability to drag pin to new location. If a passenger in a moving vehicle, the delay in turning on GPS and getting a fix can equate to miles, so adjustment is necessary. The existing manual override of naming a location is not practical on roads through open country, as many motorways are. Or you need to refine the answers it suggests. I understand this improvement is being promised.
