    It finds me a very nice routes. Opens my eyes with some new possibilities. I love the option to choose between fast and safe. However I do not use this app because of the following problems: PLEASE SOLVE THEM. 1. Displayed route completely hides names of the street. I would like to have a look before I start but it is just not possible. It would be enough to use a transparent color for the line. 2

    I use the app nearly every day. I definitely recommend it. The Finn is wonderful! I like the offline option but when I stop at traffic lights it can get a bit confusing because it loses orientation. It would really help if 1. I could rotate the map and 2. See/hear the street name.

When I tried a route which was 8 km, it didnot get saved, and I got a message, "Route is not saved as the distance is too short". So, what is the definition of distance long enough to be saved? 3. The colour combi

    This is a first time I used the new version of the app on the new phone, but sorry to say it the app was totally unusable for guidance! I hope it's some incompatibility only of my phone. There was some major problem of getting location from the phone. Sometimes app managed to fix location, gave some outdated voice guidance and stuck again. P.S. Other GPS navigation apps work fine. PPS. The App is
