First, the map is exactly like the one for Garmin, every POI on the Garmin map is there and I mean EVERY one, this is fantastic! You can see the difference with Navdroyd here, for example:
Now to the actual report. The interface is fantastic, once you are finally able to go through the Russian translation websites and end up being able find to your way through enough translations to understand where the language settings are. But even once you do, there are still parts of the software that even when you're running it in English appear in Russian:
But the Russian parts were the only real con or even glitch I was able to find.
The Map it's the real important thing when it comes to this type of program, and in this aspect, well, it's the Garmin Map, but not even the original Garmin App itself shows it so well, with such a beautiful 3D aspect. The Map viewing part, now with all the Garmin POIS, was just amazing... here:
The way to handle the "find" functions was superb, extremely easy, and complete to overflowing with everything you might possible wish for in terms of POIs. Here:
And the Navigation, which is of course the center of it all, worked just as well if not even better than most other programs I've tried for any platform:
Even the Extra functions, such as the Satellite Status or the Local Weather pages were presented beautifully, and everything just worked. Here:
Well, that's pretty much it for a report. In reality, though, what I can't do is simply thank you enough for this. I don't know how you found this package with my exact needs, but fact is you may very well have single-handedly killed off any possible reason I might have ever had to go back to dual booting WM6/Android on my phone, and somehow, just a little tiny written thank you just doesn't really seem enough appreciation, lol
. Thank you so much, buddy!
