Google Map Information

I am still having trouble finding just what I want to use on my phone for a map as Viago is no longer supported and who know how it will work with each Android update. I did so love using it without data.

I want to find out all about Google Map...

Does it run without data?
Do you have to do a setting to turn off data?

PND Versus Google Maps

I just returned from a short trip to San Antonio, about 300 miles one way. For the drive down and back, I used my wife's Via 1535TM and used Google maps on my iPhone to get around town. I like having the speed limit and traffic delay views available on the Via. I also like the convenience of Google (or Apple) maps on my iPhone for the shorter trips.

Which one do you prefer?

Here Navigation

The topic of Here Navigation was posted on thread http://www.poi-factory.com/node/44232 on the Viago discussion.

Wanted to start this new thread on Here Navigation for discussion.So not to distract from the Viago topic.

Smartphones Impacting More Than Just GPS Use in Vehicles

It appears smartphones are making obsolete more than just GPS receivers in vehicles these days.

Waze problems on my LG G3

In the past, I have been an ardent supporter of Waze, and even recommended it highly on this forum. It has served me well on my HTC One and LG G3. One issue I noticed was that occasionally, the sound went out. The oral directions stopped. Today, after the voice directions quit, I shut off Waze, and no sounds (ringtones, notifications) worked. The settings showed that everything was normal.

Tool to View Custom POI Factory Files on iPhone 6?

Is there any app out there that will allow me to access the POI files from POI factory on my iPhone and show them on the map near my location or route the way a Garmin does?

Good Price On A Refurbished Tablet At Woot Today

Over at Woot they have a refurbished Asus ME173X-A1-BL MeMO Pad 7" tablet for just $64.99. While this model is a little older it still has good specs and it would make a great unit to use for navigation by adding one of the free or low cost offline navigation apps. It does include the GPS sensor, however it is WiFi only so you would need an offline app.

Another Smartlink Traffic Question

Have a Garmin 3590LMT with a Samsung G4 and I am no longer receiving any traffic information on the GPS. With Bluetooth disabled I see the message "searching for signal" and checking the traffic provider in Settings it is Here (which I believe is correct). With Bluetooth enabled, I still do not receive any traffic info.
