Memory card reader fails The app does not read that I have a memory card inserted even though every other app is absolutely fine. No manual option to search either so not installing

Absolute rubbish. Despite telling it that I'm in the UK, it still wants money to navigate in the UK. You're supposed to get free use on one region. About the only good thing about it is that you can search by street name, rather than requiring a postcode and for that, it's worth one star. It's quite pointless given that the rest of it is rubbish though, of course. Uninstalled; I'm sticking to TomTom Go, even if it is £15 a year.

Won't download properly It has to download to phone, not SD card. Internal memory for apps on z2 is not even possible to be downloaded to phone

This app has become unreliable This needs to be fixed they app is best I have used however If you are out of range of wifi or effective broadband connection when opening and setting up the app refuses to work. Needs a bit more work to iron out this nagging point which is making the app very unreliable. COME ON GARMIN I GOT CONNECTION TO GOOGLE MAPS AND YET COULD NOT MAKE NAVIGON START.

Very smooth I have always been underwhelmed by smartphone gps until now. Very good and reliable on Xperia 3. Must turn off Bluetooth if voice directions are needed in a Golf mk 6. It works well.
