Bought a new truck that now has CarPlay. Was looking at apps that were recommended for CarPlay, especially one dealing with weather. I downloaded it based on reviews and paid for the Pro version for a year. I have now tested it a few times on my hour and half drive to my ranch. I was surprised to find there was no audible voice/ directional navigation for the map even though it uses Apple Maps. It’s been fine because I obviously know my way to the ranch. I have an upcoming trip to San Antonio and Austin. Because I will have to make a stop in San Antonio for an hour before heading on to Austin, I will need to rely on the navigation function to get to my stop in San Antonio and back out to head to Austin and navigation to the point in Austin. In my test drives to my ranch near Weimar, there has not been a navigation feature, audible or not, to see if I can rely on the navigation and weather features. Maybe I’m missing something
4 free trips with wrong routes needed
Is not free, It’s just a free trial.
Not until you install it are you told that they will charge you after a free week. There is no easy way to cancel it, so don’t even start it!!! There are better apps that are free!
Love this app. Pick departure and arrival addresses, use the cool slider at the bottom of the screen to choose your get-on-the-road date and time, and choose rain, temperature, or wind all along your route. If you want to know the weather on your trip, this is the app for you. I started to not buy the annual package ($25) because we only take 2-3 road trips a year so it would be cheaper to buy a month at a time ($5) as needed. Then decided people who create apps this wonderful deserve support and snagged a full year.
I downloaded this app to plan a trip back home with bad weather along the way, and there were no indications of a free trial, or that there needed to be a paid version in the future. Fortunately, you can still use it if you use it on the same day, but you cannot plan a trip ahead anymore unless you pay a subscription.
The directions and weather info for a route from Northern California to Portland on this app brings you way over to Bend Oregon, instead of the direct route, which isn’t even offered as an alternate. So it’s hard to judge the accuracy of the weather.
I asked for an enhancement and it happened! Was already a very good app and more valuable that they are making it better and listening to customers!
The map plots a radiate that makes no sense. I get taking me 200 miles out of the way to a city I never told it to include on the route. I gave up after several tries.
I downloaded this app for a trip because I knew there was supposed to be weather. The temperature was off by 10 degrees and the weather/roads. We encountered heaven rain and wet roads where there were supposedly dry roads and dry roads where they were supposedly wet. So far, not impressed.
