HOW IT WORKS

Select your destination — either by searching for an address, a place of interest, or by picking a spot on the map. Our Smart Keyboard and Smart Search make it easy.

iGO My way calculates the route to your chosen destination and displays a map overview along with the most important information, such as distance to travel and estimated travel time. Just tap „Go!” and iGO My way guides you to your destination with clear voice guidance and a smoothly moving 3D map.

Choose from fast, short, economical or ‘easy-to-follow’ route variants, compare the various route alternatives visually on the map, and pick the one you prefer. You can also avoid freeways, ferries, unpaved roads, and toll roads.

Please visit our www.igomyway.com web page for more details, the complete feature list and to see iGO My way in action.

Amazing App

:
As anyone here knows, it is near impossible to find places in Costa Rica. There are very few street signs and no addresses. Literally no addresses - the country has set a 10-year goal to develop them. After downloading last night, I used this App to go from a hotel in Heredia to the other side of the Central Plain. It was flawless. I do not know how the developers were able to compile the amount of information in this App. The roads twist and turn down here and many are not asphalted. I have never bought an App for more than $9.99 up to this point, but am thrilled with this purchase!

iGo Costa Rica: good

:
Did it work well? Yes. Was it perfect? No. Would I buy it again? Yes.

Just spent two weeks in Costa Rica and used iGo Costa Rica on my iPhone 3Gs. Would have literally and figuratively been lost without it. Has some weaknesses; but, definitely worth the cost, considering there is little competition.

Pros:
1) Good street maps (very complete and include various helpful tips);
2) Effective directions (particularly for a country where many/most streets are not marked with name signs);
3) Good overall functionality;
4) Excellent route-recalculation if you miss a turn (particularly easy to do in San Jose where traffic is very crowded);
5) Good screen design;
6) Reasonable list of "points of interest";
7) Good notation regarding gas stations and parking lots (gas can be an issue in the countryside)
8) Excellent help with one-way streets;
and more.

Cons:
1) Poor satellite location algorithm (I routinely needed to use another program [Accuterra] to find my satellite location, and then [once my iPhone knew where I was] I would switch back to iGo [which would "know" my location from the other program]. Without this it took "forever" for iGo to figure out where I was, and it was unable to locate me if I was actively moving in a car. This feature clearly needs work. So, if you buy this program be sure to get some other program [like Accuterra, which is free I think, or something else] which can do a much quicker job of finding your location.
2) Very awkward to mark a waypoint. Commonly if you are actively traveling you might like to mark a point of interest so that you can return to it later. This program makes that difficult and awkward. The process is neither simple nor intuitive nor quick for this function. But, ultimately, it can make waypoints and I used them frequently.
3) Changing levels of magnification (zooming in or out on a map - particularly to get the "big picture") is limited and mildly awkward to use. The software does it, but the function is not fluid.

So, if you are used to Garmin products you'll find this product to be less fluid and intuitive. However, it does work and given the current market choices it is still a product I would buy again. And, even though I own Garmin products I'm very anxious to see them get more competition. So, I hope this iGo product and its siblings continue to develop.

5/5 stars

Absolutely Amazing App!!!

:
I hesitated buying this due to the price. Do not hesitate. It is worth every penny. I just cane back from a business trip to Costa Rica and it never failed to get me where I needed to go. Even the dirt roads that go to the coffee plantations were in the database! Do not rent GPS from the car rental agency - their units do not work nearly as well. Do bring your car charger - you will want to keep your iPhone plugged into the car charger. I've never submitted a review for an app before - but this app is AMAZING!!
