Ratings and Reviews
If you wanna go places you were not planning!
Best trip advisor ever! You want to go from point A to point B! Your luck has favoured you! You are going to see point C,D,E and most importantly point W. A tour of the whole city, sometimes a full country! it will make you make circles! squares and every possible shape! Also do not forget to have a compass with you , because many times it will tell you to go northwest but you have no idea where west or north is ! But do not worry!!!! A new shape will be born and you can then travel another 3650kms to go on a place which was on the previous corner and you could just do around the square and get there !
Back to normal

Why is it going crazy?
Lately, the app is getting very confused, showing a left turn but urging you to turn right, or stopping the navigation half way through the journey. I hear others are facing similar issues too... and it has nothing to do with calibrating the compass or pressing the North button.
One last thing: why on earth is it asking me to head northwest or southeast or what not. This is really annoying! I don’t have a compass in my head, especially when I’m in a new place. This must stop.

In navigation mode, if you tap the compass in the top right corner, you can switch between always facing north or facing your direction of travel. Please copy and paste this Help Center link into your browser for some steps that might help improve your location accuracy: https://goo.gl/XlhhQr
