    "This looks like an overall fine maps app, but a lot of the reviews seem negative. It seems like it might not be as well supported as a google maps or apple maps, but still fine. It would be worth a try."

    "Mapfactor Navigator is definitely the easiest GPS navigator I have used. I particularly like the ease of use and the live traffic indicator so I know if there is traffic ahead. The navigator also presents several alternate routes and large turn-by-turn images. The points of interest is a nice feature for spontaneous side trips during a family vacation."
