    Used to work. Won't open in last two updates including 26 Sep 17 update. I use this app with my new 2797. Works great. Many reviewers have devices not listed as compatible. Wake up. It won't work with a non compatible device. Duh. Sends new destination to device from my iPhone instantly. Occasionally if Smartlink hasn't connected to device I open the app on my phone and the link icon instantly appears on the 2797. I use advanced weather also. Works great for weather radar display. What a great app. So many POIs are not on the GPS but found in Google. This is such an easy way to send that poi to your gps expanding your data base. Couldn't live without this app now that I've used it. The latest update really works well and the interface is much better.

    I've been using this app for years and on both platforms. Until this recent update it was usable and very handy, especially while traveling, as I now doing. When will Garmin fix this? After iOS updates to 11? Garmin, please help, this app is useless now. .......... Updated to iOS 11 application is still broken!!!!!! So frustrating!

    By Lilwinch78
    So many of the places that I have searched for are closed up and ones that aren't closed don't show up! App needs a real update of business's and locations!! Get it together Garmin. You're suppose to be the top shelf in this market.
  • Worthless

    Been reading reviews that are 3years old and they haven't addressed any issues. Go it to show park once and forever stays there. Re installed now it doesn't do anything . Another worthless euro product
  • Can't get saved places back

    By Mishatomsk
    The app is crashing after a recent update every time I try to start it. I do not want to loose all of my saved places by reinstalling the app. Developers, are you planning on fixing this, or you just want to wait until everyone gets fed up and reinstalls the app loosing all of their data? I wanted to back up my favorites even before it started crashing, but you give us no way to do so. Come on guys, this is just so inconsiderate.
  • How to fix crash problem

    By CowExtract
    If you delete the app, and then re download it, that will fix the problem. However, if you have any addresses saved in the app, they will be deleted as well. Also, after deleting/reinstalling, don't forget to hit the "restore purchases" button. 2 stars b/c I shouldn't have had to resort to deleting all my saved data, but it is working now...
