  • not just 0.99$

    by Scott Razor

    A good app that would be better in case it would really cost the purchase price. After a trial (for which you have to pay a buck) it asks you for more money. So, I switched to another turn-by-turn GPS.

  • Awesome. It's my best friend.

    by D@nie|

    Excellent app, my best friend in my daily job, easy to use, always accurate and the truck option is really helpful.

  • Easy to use

    by SilverStarSparkle

    Easy to use app.

  • Best GPS Navigation App Used

    by Gb_LA

    As a current OnStar and former TomTom, Garmin user I have to rate this App 5 Stars due in part to its engineering and navigation. It provides accurate audio instructions that are timely and accurate. It uses other data (traffic and shared traffic info) to optimize a route. I use this as my preferred navigation anytime I can and prefer it actually over everything else. Just returned from a trip to Stowe VT and it found an alternate route that saved me 1 hour driving back roads by using a ferry route.

  • Great

    by pakcikahsan

    Really good-great

  • Great

    by Anonymous 1234568

    Great app, neat interface and very accurate.

  • Great app!

    by V Gifford

    I am generally always lost until I've lived somewhere forever.... This app is fantastic in that it can find me anywhere and get me where I need to be. I don't worry about getting lost anymore and with a two year old in the car, that's a great comfort.

  • This is top notch!!!

    by JoyPull

    I love this app. I don't like having to follow a map so this one speaking the directions simplifies everything! It's only taken me to the wrong location with one address but I tried 2 other apps with same address and they had same results!

  • Really great GPS App!

    by WeaselMF

    I have been using this app in conjunction with several other GPS apps and this one wins hands down. I really wish it would show the posted speed limit like a regular GPS device, and had downloadable maps, so it would use GPS satellites instead of cellular.

  • Gokivo

    by Crowman2000_98

    Best navigation app I've ever used!!!! I've used a lot by the way!!! I recommend getting it!!!! Dan

  • Gokivo GPS. App

    by Tjm358

  • It's a great app, however...

    by CCSbusiness

    If this app is to do well, it needs to be free!!! I'm going back to Waze, which is TOTALLY FREE!!! I'll miss the 3D views, but I'll live.

  • Very good app

    by Mugsy201

    I think this is a real good app, altho I have learned not to trust the delay times as it seems the actual times are a lot longer. Other than that, it's very functional

  • Love it!

    by DeliGuy11

    Mixes with music (Slacker) really well. Good-looking app.

  • Good program but missing streets on my development which causes crazy routing. Also price us high.

    by Unlimitedsoundsdj

    Good program but missing streets on my development which causes crazy routing. It also doesn't always rotate to Landscape all the time when on car cradle and other programs do. I still purchased as its pretty good.

  • App of the Yr

    by Flashtime99

    If I could vote now and say this the best app I've ever used as far as navigation is concern

  • Very bad

    by NIKMODY

    Do not buy !!! Its a total rip off Developers don't respond to queries Very poor customer service SYGIC and TOM TOM NAVIGATION much better than this trashy app

  • Maybe for some

    by Salduvar

    Was excited at first to try it 99cent ..too a trip into San Francisco for some reason it kept trying to take me off the freeway and then back on again. Downtown the 3D view was nice but after being close to where I needed to go it failed it took me in circles recalculating . I had to switch to another app

  • What!!!? It's not free anymore!!? See ya!

    by The worst in pricing!

    This app was great when it was free! Now you people charge for it??? I just uninstalled it and so did my family and friends ! By the way- google maps will be replacing this app. By charging for this app you killed it! #seeya!!!!

  • Garbage!!

    by N_Glinks

    I've been trying to get guidance from NYC to CHICAGO and each time I enter the address and hit GO- the bloody app crashes!! What good is an app that one pays for, that cannot deliver, especially for big cities???

  • Was free NO MORE

  • Only 30 days free

    by Leotran63

    Muy bueno pero solo dura un mes gratis, luego se bloquea y te cobran subscripción para seguir usandolo.

  • Muy bueno

    by yessykm

    Este es un buen navegador que te permite muchas occiones de tráfico me gusta mucho estoy very happy Thank You

  • The best among the free GPSs app


    I love it ...not the best as compared to Navigon and the Garmins but feature wise it is the beat among the free ones. -Auto day Night mode -3D view of major cities and highways. -Traffic alerts I wish it also had speed alerts..

  • 30 days only

    by Bigshow401

    I liked this app, but not free after 30 days. Too bad.. Now iPhone has google maps for free.. So bye-bye gokivo


    by MysterReview

    Maybe it's okay, but there is no chance to find out. Your service is cut off after a couple of weeks without enough time to compare to very fine ones, such as Motion X. They ALL have flaws.

  • Not good after one month

    by Muqaddas Qalamyar

    It's charge you 4.99/month.

  • Very nice
