Hi and Thank you for contacting us.

UPDATE: Tuesday Feb 20.
We have fixed the issue and are waiting on the Play Store to approve it.

Hopefully it will be approved by tomorrow.

As you can imagine we are getting a ton of emails and using the auto reply is the fastest way to let you know the latest information.

Again...We are very upset about this and sincerely apologize.

We are keeping track of every email, and as soon as it is back up and running, we will notify those who have emailed us as well as post it here.

Again…..We are So sorry for the inconvenience.

Villages GPS Team

Mine has not worked for weeks. I didn't realize how much I used the app. I have written to them 3 times and get the same reply they are working on it.

I thought I was going crazy, took my golf cart for a test drive and my GPS app kept telling me "No Routes" My brother downloaded to his Iphone and it works. I have an Android. Please advise when this is fixed. Thank you.

Default Fixed!

FINALLY we have fixed the massive bugs we had!

Please try your Android phone again. If for some reason it didn’t automatically update. follow these steps to manually update it.

1. Open the Google Play Store app.
2. Touch the Menu icon (3 lines)
3. My Apps.
4. Apps with available updates are labeled "Update."
5. Select "Villages GPS" and touch Update.

Just so you know… we are just a couple Villagers like yourself, not a big company and are trying our best to keep everything updated.

Again, we are SO sorry for the inconvenience.

Thank you,
Villages GPS Team

So does the Villages App let me give my own starting point or is my starting point always my current location?

I have always been unable to successfully do that. I pretty much only use Google maps now for the rare occasions I need directions. I emailed them about it a while back and not sure if there was some workaround or it couldn't be done. IIRC there were some limitations when I tried it.

The app is now working but you may need to updat the app on your phone. it looks like it will only give directions from your current location. the speedometer / point to point will give you a path on a map that may be what you are looking for.

I have only tried using this app twice. First, when I first purchased the app and tested it to see how it would route me to my house from Colony plaza. While I live north of 466A it kept trying to send me south. I removed the app and last weekend reinstalled it and attempted to use it to go to the balloon fest. It would not look up the Polo Field and also would not find my house address on my return. The only way I have been able to use the app is to search for an executive golf course close to my destination and find my way from there.
