Default The Villages GPS is it worth $5.00

Is it worth the $5.00? I am doing the life style visit next week and wondered if it would be useful.

Thanks

Cool

You can also use Google Maps in Bicycle mode to show the multimodal paths.

While using bicycle mode, you can use the navigation routing function, but as with any GPS system, you should be aware of your surrounding and not go on any roads that are not cart accessible.

If all else fails, stop you cart and pull out a map. Within a few seconds, someone will stop and ask if they can help you....

Enjoy your visit!

Not sure what is the Villages GPS for $5. Google maps has been accurate when we have used it to navigate around the Villages. Also, for Golf Cart travel when we are not certain about the paths, we refer to a map

Good Luck and have Fun!

It's $5 for crying out loud. Yes it is worth it.

It's the same price you'll pay for The Villages map and it is FAR more useful. Need to find a rec center? Just find it in the rec center listing and touch it. Same with golf courses, restaurants, pools, shopping.

Considering all the work that went into developing this app and the limited market for it, $5 is a pretty good price!

I have it on my phone and it works great. Well worth the $4.95. Updates are free too. Much easier than fumbling with a map and trying to drive the cart. Also when you select a destination, you get turn by turn voice directions. All the golf courses are listed as are many other points of interest. Three different map views...it is terrific!!!

They also offer full customer service support as well. If you use Google maps please be careful as they will route you in places golf carts are not allowed.

Here is a link to their website so you can do your own research:

I really like it.
Yes, they do give customer support.
I used it to call the exec golf courses several times. The phone # is so handy and easy to use.
Local restaurants are there as well along with many other useful features.
