I purchased this App and while I find it will be useful to me although much of the area below 466A still shows just dirt. I don't know what mapping software it uses but it is incomplete. Otherwise it seems to be a good tool when one is undecided on which way to go. I've lived in TV for 2 years and I still get turned around at times especially when in my golf cart looking for unfamiliar golf courses.

Hi.

I just purchased and downloaded the $4.99 app that you describe above "The Villages GPS". Looks great.


Thanks,
Gary7

LOL… I hear ya Mike.. The Villages are expanding so fast that the the latest satellite software that we use on the market can't even keep up with the building. For your convenience we have added Standard and Hybrid Views if you don't want to view by Satellite and look at the dirt in this area. Of course once the satellite mapping software we use is the most current on the market and up to date and it will refresh whenever they do their updates..

As a side note.. All Roads and Golf Cart Trails are complete south of 466A. Please if there are ever any golf cart trails that are brand new that we don't have in the app and you catch it… please let us know and we will update it…

Thanks for your question...

Our app has full turn by turn VOICE directions for your golf carts and cars so your volume may be turned down.

Please make sure your galaxy S3 volume is all the way and not on vibrate. That goes for all other apple and Android devices.

Thanks for the purchase and glad you like it!! Now you can use it everyday and customize it saving your favorites along the way for easy use every time! We have tutorials once you purchase it so you understand how to use it (and you can always hit the "more" button on menu to "Take A Tour" as well).

What about the text version instead of voice directions for people with hearing loss? Also, why should I pay another $4.99 for my spouse's phone? Please advise.

It seems that only the latest Garmin GPS has the streets south of 466a. I did download the Villages GPS App and since I am not currently at the Villages it is hard to tell if it will be any good. If Garmin was smart they would do an optional Golf Cart map to download into your current Garmin GPS.

App looks great but my husband says it shows Brownwood as undeveloped yet? Hope the app updates frequently!
