    So convenient to have the directions right on my wrist instead of needing to always look at my phone.

    The App is outstanding. For those of you thinking that the app doesn't work on your new Active 2, it's because you didn't go through and set all the settings correctly. If you can't figure things out from the instructions on this page or the app itself, then a simple Google Search will show you what you need to do, and there are a ton of settings not enabled that need to be to work properly, but once setup, it is amazing. I suggest having the always on top feature enabled by default in the installer, because why would you start directions and not want it to be the top thing you see on your phone without having to dig through to the NP app and start it manually?

    This app does not work well on my Samsung S3 smartwatch at all. Even though I changed all the settings to make the app functional between my phone and my watch, the watch shuts off all the time and it doesn't acknowledge the app coming through the phone. Very disappointing

    Have had this app for awhile now then all of a sudden it stopped working. Everytime I shut off the screen on my phn it stops connecting to my watch. I've checked all settings and they are as they should. Optimization is on high power, maps notifications is on. I have it to not sleep in background, smartlock is set for phn and watch. Even turned on pop ups again thinking this would fix it but nothing. I noticed 2 weeks ago maps updated for there 15yr celebration. Could this be the issue? Help pls

    Indispensable app. But you must change settings related to this app and Google Maps going to sleep in the background. Crucially on Samsung phones, go into the power saving menu and do not select a power saving mode. Also turn off 'Adaptive Power Saving'. (You can always turn it back on when not using Navigation Pro). It then works flawlessly. I especially recommend having music through BT buds and G Maps voice guidance for the turns for an awesome experience. 5 Stars. Thank you.

    Been using this app with the native Google Maps app on my android phone. Usually works fine, but does have those moments where my phone is unable to constantly update my location and as a result I often miss out on important turns. I have recently found out Google has launched a lighter version of their Google Maps app called Google Maps Go. I would like to know if this app can work with that?

    Love this app. It really helps when I'm on my motorcycle and I can just look at my watch instead of looking down at my phone. Or I'm just out for a walk and I don't have to take my phone out to look at the map. And the map works so well.

    Has access to all your media and messages, as soon as I saw that in the permissions (no option to select what info i was allowing) I uninstalled and refunded. I can't see any reason a navigation app needs to read my messages, nope, bye.

    The app idea is cool but the performance not so much sadly, I've excluded the app from power saving on the phone but yet when the phone locks in my pocket the direction updates on watch active 2 stop showing also the distance in meter stops so even if I walk a km it wouldn't show , hope anyone can give me an answer for this ...

    I've used this app for more than a year, without issues; I've not needed it's features but it's novel and again, no issues. Until now,! After changing a fee settings (unrelated to this app) on my watch (a new Samsung Gear), the "Settings" screen appeared on my phone (Moto Z3) and after changing the settings to my needs, I attempted to give it (this app) a 5 Star rating. However, I found I could not close the app. It reopened within seconds. I've uninstalled it and doubt I'll attempt it again.

I only bought the app last week, and gutted coz it was great last week but I also needed to use it this week! Hope the patch comes soon! Edit - resolved! Thank you so much! Quick uninstall, restart solved the problem! Wish I'd known it yesterday but still brilliant app!
