Well I buggerised around for several hours with the navfree app and it's definitely smarter than me. I cannot get it to plot a route from anywhere other than where I am, even with GPS switched off.
I tried plotting from Sydney airport to Nelson's bay, a trip we will be doing prior to heading off to the states, but it will only give me a route from home.
I have saved a route from home to a local shopping centre and will test the saved version next time I use the car, either tomorrow or Friday. It looks like you have to start a route from wherever you are at the time which is bloody frustrating.
That's a shame....I'm hoping someone else will tune in with more suggestions here. I'll warn you now, some navigation apps can be quite expensive.
I've been out and about today and did a drive into the country.....did a round trip of just over 500kms and used Maps with Me but then I don't need to plot a course. I even have built in satnav in my Prado but prefer the app.
I bought my iPad to use mostly as a GPS in the motorhome and after searching and talking on the RV Forums, I settled on MotionX Drive HD app. It was $10 and very good reviews. I'll be giving it a shakedown test this week as we're off on vacation to the ocean and even though I already know my route, I want to test it out. I like the fact that you can set things like hight restrictions adn things too. It already gives a better route than my factory GPS in my wifes new car. I'll let you know how it works when I get back.
Thanks Jack. I look forward to your feedback.
