What’s New

Version 3.6.2

"With this update, we have revised the entire route planning process. Thanks to thousands of POIs, it is now even easier to configure a tour. Each route now contains three driving options (Curvy, Fast, Balanced) from which you can choose. And for a quicker start to navigation, it can now be started directly from the planning stage without any detours.

If you want to share a route with your friends on WhatsApp, Instagram and the like, you can now create a personalized graphic thanks to the new assistant. Give it a try if you like.

In response to many requests, we have provided simple video instructions for the most important actions in ROADS in the FAQ section.

Many thanks for all the feedback on the last version. We have fine-tuned the route import so that the imported route is as close as possible to the ""original"".

There are also various improvements and performance enhancements."

Pinnacle of Exploration

I’m going to be totally upfront.

I don’t own a Porsche as a 18 year old Highschool Senior. I expected the app to be built purely around what a track car was made to do, and downloaded because I thought it would be cool to look at.

As soon as I opened the app and created my account, I was instantly greeted with a list of car brands, including my personal, Subaru, and was given the options of choosing straight always for going fast, lots of curves, perfect for rally, etc. I fully expected to more or less no be able to do anything with this app, but just by browsing, I have created an itinerary for me and my lads to go cruising around the heart of the Pacific Northwest, all because Porsche was lovely enough to create other options.

I looked for my routes, and couldn’t quite find them, they didn’t seem the same. It was then I realized Porsche was so in depth, they had created LARGER VERSIONS THAT FULLY ENCOMPASSED MY ROUTES, and proceeded to make them 10x better.

I have literally nothing to complain about, and everything to be thankful for. It is a beautifully designed app, that stays true to its mission, to be an app for car people.

Close, but not quite there…

I would like to continue using the app, as it did set up a decent route, but I wish it would allow deviations from the designed route. We were having a great drive, and found a fun looking road so decided to take a turn the app had not created. Once we deviated, the app wanted us to turn back and continue from the last point where we had deviated the app has created. That created a frustrating moment, and environment, so we ended up turning off the app. Earlier on that same drive, we stopped for gas, and exited the parking lot at a different exit that we entered, so the app would not continue with the route until we turned back and exited from the entrance we entered the gas station. Not a fun moment. I removed the app from my phone, as every time I considered using it, I realized I wanted to be able to stop to see the sights along the way, and the app would ultimately just be a distraction from the fun because of the issues. Sorry

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback. Indeed, ROADS requires the route to be driven exactly as designed. Which means that you need to pass the waypoints that the route consists of. If you leave it or miss the waypoint, we try to bring you back to the last known point in the shortest way can cause loops that have not been part of the initial routing. However, we are aware that the routing needs more flexibility in this regard and our team is already working on a solution which will be available soon.

So very disappointing

I finally found a free Saturday and called up the Roads app to find a fun drive up to Bear Mountain State Park. Waze called for a 55 min drive, so I was encouraged when Roads predicted a 90 min journey. Northern NJ has some amazing, spirited roads so I eagerly set out to follow the route.

However, right away, I noticed odd guidance through 25 mph zones. The app directed me through a parking lot, then returned me to continue on my current road, so I ignored its detour through the lot and continued on, yet the app repeatedly urged me to turn around and go back through the lot. I stopped and restarted the route to get back on track, but again, all I saw was slow drives through light after light.

After 90 minutes of barely exceeding 40 mph at the top speed, I frustratedly deleted the app and used Waze. 15 min later, I reached my destination and used Waze to return home on the Pallisades Pkwy, a terrific road with speed and scenery that I sought from the beginning. Porsche has a LOT of work to do to get me to try this again.
