PREMIUM OFFLINE GPS NAVIGATION WITH FREE MAPS AND POI
Genius Maps is a free
application that installs on your iPhone and iPad. It's an offline route
planning, exploration and navigation app that doesn't require a mobile internet
connection to search and navigate. All the maps are stored...
This so-called “GPS” is the worst thing ever! It is, in fact, the exact opposite of a GPS. When someone puts in a destination, it is expected that the program will take them there in a reasonably quick and direct way. It is expected that directions for turns, exits, etc. will be given unambiguously and in plenty of time for the driver to take appropriate action. My experience with this piece of trash shows that whoever wrote the app did not have any of the above in mind. Turns are announced after it is too late to move into the proper lane, causing you to miss the turn and need to be rerouted. Directions are ambiguous at best. This morning I followed the directions exactly and ended up going the wrong direction on a freeway off-ramp!!! I could have been killed because of this thing!!! Then, when I was navigating to somewhere that I somewhat knew where to go near the end of the route, the directions literally took me in the opposite direction from where I had to go. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY WITH THIS APP. I REALLY WISH I HADNT.
Most GPS devices have greatly improved the voice problem. Genius Maps is so new but so backwards. I see that I need to turn onto “whatever Dr” but what I hear is “whatever doctor” Needs a LOT of improvements to get up to speed. NEW - It’s been updated, now I hear “whatever Dee Are”. Also I see gas stations on the map, but what about the restaurants and hotels and shops and schools etc. Also it would be nice to set the alerts and not have to set them every time I use the app. I don’t need to hear that I’m going over the speed limit. I don’t need to be told there are gas stations close by ever second. It would be nice to turn them off and not have to keep turning them off every time I use the app.
Decent nav app
My primary use for GPS is for traffic monitoring, not directions. Genius maps does a good job of displaying the traffic and letting me scroll ahead. I would prefer if it would let me zoom out a little further while still showing the traffic and if it would remember my settings. However, it still workable.
Voice or NO
Frustrated that out of numerous attempts to use the ap on my Spyder after paying a big price tag; the voice has only worked one time. The navigation is accurate and loaded with features but I need the voice on my helmet to work also. Why is there no support line? I have tried everything I could try to blame this on BRP CONNECT but this app won’t talk to me period even though I have the volume turned up on my bike and the app or my phone all the way. At this point I feel as if I have been ripped off. I am encouraging all to beware. I have tried to contact Genius maps with no luck. Apple needs to shut them down or refund all of the money spent by Apple users!
Crashing & TTS
The latest update from a couple of days ago now makes the program crash on opening. Also, they still haven't fixed text to speech. It still says things incorrect like Dr for drive is said as doctor.
Not too bad but quirky
Needs some polish: 1) the app shows random “message of the day” advertising things even though I’ve already bought into the app. Would be great if there could be an option to disable it. 2) after recent update, the speed, safety camera, and petrol station alerts re-enable themselves even after I explicitly disable them. This is very annoying!
Disappointing at best
There’s never a big fan of Google or Waze or any of the other map apps I’ve tried but this one takes the cake. When I found out it could pair with my head yet pioneer 4200NEX. The app basics are glitchy at best, Wen it decides it wants to work it workskinda well. The free version is OK went wanted to work but after the trial period ends they ask you to pay to keep using. The amount that they asked is absolutely asinine Given the amount of options out there, It’s borderline insulting.
Lots of glitches
Have tried using this a few times and when I can get it to actually load it does not give a direct short route. Constantly tried to reroute me on the experimental rides when I took the route I knew to be direct and quickest. I was very disappointed that the app will only load 1 out of 4 times I want to use it
A little hard to get used to. You have to have an accurate destination not just a general area like google maps allows. It shows up good on the CanAm Spyder display while riding. A bit problematic with the IPhone permissions but I’m sure it’s just a phone issue.
It does what it’s supposed to do.
It does what it’s supposed to do, however, I wish it was more like Waze. It’s nice to know ahead of time when a highway might have an obstruction on it, or when a service vehicle might be working ahead.
This was an option by Pioneer to display navigation on their car stereo. But these guys want $50 for that capability. Then you would get one of those awkward and usually frustrating navigation systems that most car makers put into their systems. Type in “pizza” and get a list of pizza places (assuming pizza is in their name) and their distance from you. Need to see that on a map—fugettaboutit. It like using an old Garmin from 15 years ago.
Still won’t work with Pioneer decks
I spent $90 for the two components necessary to work with my Pioneer Deck in my car. 5 months later it stopped working. It’s been 5 months and multiple updates to the software and it still doesn’t work. They say they can’t refund my money. I don’t think I’ve ever been more blatantly robbed in any software purchase in my life. Don’t buy this! Maybe some day they will fix it...maybe not.
This a great GPS navigation App!
Like the reach without having to use expensive data rate when you cross the border or go abroad. When I try to link my contact the App crashes after few minutes. I have to re-install it and NOT LINK MY CONTACT from my IPhone Beside that Great for long haul traveling and traveling abroad.
Purchased map, traffic, and connect. Before I purchased the maps, during the trial, everything worked perfectly. After the purchase, which was quite a lot, can no longer connect. Emailed the company multiple times but no response. I would caution before purchasing any of these maps or corresponding services.
One of the most comprehensive maps apps out there
