This is the only difference between standard and premium.

Cabbie’s Mate A-Z provides:
Four Geographers’ A-Z maps. These are the Super Scale Central London map, Greater London map (street level Master Atlas), Extended Greater London Main Road map and the Great Britain Road Atlas. Greater and Central London maps have been customised by Geographers’ A-Z Map Co. Ltd. by colouring more main roads around the City of London to assist route planning; exclusive to our software. Our app contains the latest available maps which are always displayed ‘north up’, your current position is displayed as you move on screen while you drive. Switching between A-Z maps is a one touch operation.
Maps can be zoomed in and out – not only by using the ‘pinching’ action but also six levels using the + and - buttons added for even more user friendliness.
Our database contains over 39,441 up-to-date specially selected points of interest with full postal address and postcode. Our app will always have our very latest POI file when purchased. Most major hotels, embassies, theatres, stations and major landmarks are also shown on the Super Scale Central London map.
Searching couldn’t be easier, it is the fastest of any mapping application. Our customised predictive keyboard and alphabetical search system finds and displays a street, postcode or point of interest within ten seconds.
When connected to GPS, your current position is clearly displayed on the map. Having selected a destination, our A-Z app automatically draws a straight, as the crow flies, blue ‘cotton line’ from your position to the chosen destination to facilitate route planning. Additionally, you can select an alternative start point on the map by pressing down on the map; the app will draw the ‘cotton line’ from there to your chosen destination.
The app includes centre GPS, zoom in/out, map switch, day/night mode, route plotting, eraser, info, navigation (N), trace and search buttons on the tool bar.
Simple user manual is located under ‘i’ button.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

The out of range app
The map on the app is quite detailed which is quite nice, however whenever I want to see an area it is only showing me a 3-4 mile radius instead of the 6 mile radius. When I try to scroll around, it doesn't even load up I am simply greeted with a white out-of-rang border.
This is extremely frustrating considering that the app costs so much, and for such a high price this feature should surely be included. The app requires this feature, so if you could update it that would be perfect. Otherwise I wouldn't be very likely to recommend the app to anybody else.
I use A-Z maps because of my study for the knowledge of London, because I use it frequently and London streets are changing quickly I find A-Z maps are so slow to update the changes that take place even though I get four times a year an update.
I see that some streets are still one way system for about a year and some of them still the same.
So why I pay £39 a year when google is free and has a fast update system.
For an example I find a point in 28 Basil street in Knightsbridge SW3 1AS it’s called the LEVIN hotel its a wrong position.

I’m a London Black Cab Driver. I love using this cabbie mate app. Very easy, to use. Takes you to A&B without any hassle. Especially, when you are around city of London or perhaps west end area. As a matter of fact, I can’t drive without the app.
