I have a Samsung S20+ with a Vivo Active3M. It works fairly well it doesn't sometimes lags in which direction to go.

On Epix gen2 in 9 from ten app on watch doesn't sync with phone, if, yes it shows only the numbers the arrows for the turns are a moving circle. Battery optimization ok, notification allowing ok, everything should work but no.

I am a premium user, but I have the worst experience with this app . It doesn't load in shorter distances .It still loads by the time you must take a turn, and there is no option to change background. It is utterly useless at night since it will be all dark, and you can't see what's being shown if you are traveling on a scooty.

Disaster!!! Thare is no way point it is only turning wheel. Completely useless. I purchased premium and I want refund.

September 23, 2021 | Version 1.2.2

not sure whats the point of this app and a companion app to display on watch. if you are carrying your android device with you that already has gmaps.

I have really good experience with this navigation on Tizen (Samsung Gear S3 Frontier) , so I purchased also a premium version on my new Garmin Fenix. I was looking forward for my favourite color interface and reliable app but.... The app worked 2 times from 5 tries and then the turn-by-turn navigation have a reaaaally slow update. Devs, please fix this issue, I am very dissapointed. If you have Tizen watch, go and buy it but there is a just a waste of money.

Hier gefunden, installiert, getestet und gekauft! Da gab es keine großen Überlegungen. Super Sache und funktioniert tadellos auf meiner Fenix 6X Pro. Eine kleine Sache, aber da habe ich euch ein Feedback geschrieben. Wäre schön, wenn da was machen ließe. Ansonsten... Vielen Dank für eine wirklich gelungene App

Good app. But you have to keep an eye on the smartwatch at least twice after each turn so you don't miss the next turn... Enhancements could still be made: Vibration could come 100m BEFORE you have to make the turn instead of 10m after and there might be different alerts for turning left or right.

June 26, 2021 | Version 1.2.2

useless. always have to pull out phone to see when I get there or when the next turn is because navigation is so delayed

June 16, 2021 | Version 1.2.2

Unfortunately.. it really does need long time to update the arrows in the watch.. i give 3 stars in hope that dev will fix it instead of abandon this app.. good luck and i really hope you can fix it.. until then i will uninstall.. thank you

May 26, 2021 | Version 1.2.2

Dangerously useless. Takes literal multiple minutes to update to the next turn if it ever even updates at all. Disconnects and crashes constantly. Sometimes it refuses to update the turn icon so it shows e.g. to turn left when you're supposed to be turning right. I can't be messing with this while trying to drive. If it can't be reliable it is worthless. And they have the gall to ask for money for a "pro" version? Yeah, uninstalled.

May 21, 2021 | Version 1.2.2

Sprzęt to Vivoactive 4. Nawigacja pokazuje tylko nazwę ulicy. Nie przesyła, nie pokazuje kierunku ani żadnych innych danych.

Habe die App als Motorradnavigation in Verbindung mit einer Garmin Fenix 5X und einem Samsung Galxy S10 getestet. Leider hat sich die App mehrmals aufgehangen. Zudem war die Aktualisierung der Anzeige recht träge. Manchmal erschien zwar der Strassenname, der Richtubgspfeil aktualisierte aber nicht rechtzeitig. Auch die Entfernubgsanzeige blieb zu lange ohne Änderung. Als Fahhradapp oder zum Wandern eventuell zu gebrauchen. Wenn es schneller wird zur Zeit für mich unbrauchbar.

ところどころ不安定ではありますがちゃんと動作しました。 スマートウォッチとスマホ、両方設定すればあとはスマホのGoogleマップでナビを開始すればスマートウォッチ側に「開始 ナビゲーション?」と出てくるのでチェックマークをタップすればアプリが起動します。 たまに開始の画面が出てこなかったり終了したのにも関わらずそのまま表示が残ったりと不安定な部分はありますが、アプリを手動で起動、終了すればいいので大きな問題ではありません。 表示できるのはスマホの通知に表示される内容のみで地図そのものの表示はできないようです。

Dear developer, I download this program and I like it. But there is some things that I have to mention. When downloading to the phone, the app starts to drain the battery fast. And on my Garmin fenix 5s its slow. I m glad that there is the app l, that is very simple There is a need to work little more on it.

Hello Molex, we are planning to bring companion app for iOS devices as well. However it is currently technically not possible. Bests, Navigation Wear team

Every time the Direction ICON show loading for 10 to 15 sec in Fenix 6x, I think the icon was every time load from mobile phone via bluetooth, Better your can save all direction icon in fenix 6x app which fix loading 10 second for every time.

Hello Dhanapal.PN, thank you for your feedback! Navigation Wear watch app has caching feature which will speed up drawing of directions that were once already passed. This means app will get faster after some time of usage. Bests, Navigation Wear team
