There are Pros and Cons with the "Update"

Original review: I originally downloaded the app in July as we were getting ready to purchase a Trimble GPS . The app's UI was simple to navigate and much more user friendly (it was a five star app). Then after a couple months, we finely got our GPS device and the app's UI has changed. It is not as intuitative anymore.

Update: I do like that it saves the last GPS I connected to so I don't have to hit "connect" everytime I turn it on. There are definitely pros and cons. I just preferred the old app UI. Otherwise, the updates may be better than I initially though.

Update seems buggy.

Ever since the update I have been having trouble connecting to the unit on many occasions... had a black screen when I first downloaded and had to uninstall and reinstall the app.

The free app works very well. I am using a Trimble R1 and iPhone. If this app had position averaging, it would be five star plus.
