I've used this app for more than a year, without issues; I've not needed it's features but it's novel and again, no issues. Until now,! After changing a fee settings (unrelated to this app) on my watch (a new Samsung Gear), the "Settings" screen appeared on my phone (Moto Z3) and after changing the settings to my needs, I attempted to give it (this app) a 5 Star rating. However, I found I could not close the app. It reopened within seconds. I've uninstalled it and doubt I'll attempt it again.

Great but.... since the latest Maps update it's just stopped working. The phone just does not connect to the watch. I only bought the app last week, and gutted coz it was great last week but I also needed to use it this week! Hope the patch comes soon! Edit - resolved! Thank you so much! Quick uninstall, restart solved the problem! Wish I'd known it yesterday but still brilliant app!

The app idea is cool but the performance not so much sadly, I've excluded the app from power saving on the phone but yet when the phone locks in my pocket the direction updates on watch active 2 stop showing also the distance in meter stops so even if I walk a km it wouldn't show , hope anyone can give me an answer for this ...

If you give an option to stop the app from running on the watch while Google maps are being used on the phone as navigation system I will give it 5 . This option was available previously. I just want to be able to turn it off to preserve the battery of the watch when I want to. Thanks! P. S. The developer is very responsive

Been using regularly for a while, very helpful for directions and helps keep me focused on the road vs distractions from the phone. Especially helpful for motorcycle riders! I like that I can choose within the settings to start or not start it automatically when Google maps starts.

Love this app. It really helps when I'm on my motorcycle and I can just look at my watch instead of looking down at my phone. Or I'm just out for a walk and I don't have to take my phone out to look at the map. And the map works so well.

Has access to all your media and messages, as soon as I saw that in the permissions (no option to select what info i was allowing) I uninstalled and refunded. I can't see any reason a navigation app needs to read my messages, nope, bye.

Does not work. But wait now it does. I think that after install there was an update to the app according to google 2 hrs ago this may have reset some of the permissions and notification settings. Thanks for your prompt reply.

Worst as always and again a pathetic app from Samsung. Do they really test their apps and product release. I am using OnePlus 5t and recently bought active 2 and i had to buy this app. Maps were sync only for a day.

Paid to use on my new samsung active 2 watch and it doesn't work. I had a frontier gear 3 and navigation system worked perfect and it was free it showed the map just like your phone.
