Default New & Improved Villages GPS App

We are so happy to announce the LONG AWAITED and brand new Villages GPS app which is available for all Apple and Google Android users in your app store. Simply from the phone, you will be using when driving, go to the app store and search "Villages GPS". It's a ONE TIME $6.99 download fee (per device) and you get unlimited updates and improvements along the way. For more info, here is our website: Home | The Villages GPS

We also want to thank all the support to all those who have been with us over the past 5 years now!! With no additional money to you of course, we are so excited and happy to announce that the new Rebuilt and Redesign has all new code from our new developers! We talked to hundreds of our users, listened to all the feedback, implemented it and so much more!!

MAKE SURE TO UPDATE but also......Before you update:
Please write down or take a screenshot of all of your Favorites. The one thing that couldn't be done was saving your past marked favorites since the app was rebuilt. We don't ever anticipate this again and you can easily check again your favorites in the newly updated app. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Before you contact us we want you to know:
We added a very small Ad at the very bottom of the app. It cost us a small fortune to rebuild the app from scratch. The mapping license is an additional cost that we didn't have before as well. Please know we didn't raise the price of the app as we hope the ad covers this additional cost. FYI - During Navigation you will not see the ad as it's only on the menu.

Including an entirely new look, here is a list of some of the improvements:

* 24 Hr. Golf Cart Roadside Assistance
* American English voice
* All sections have easy sort results by “Distance” based on your location
* You can now Rotate your device horizontal
* You can zoom in and out without screen problems.
* Point to Point now shows you times and distance by Golf Cart routes
* All new locations/places near Fenney
* "Take a Tour Section" in the “More" section shows you what every function does for each part of the app.
* Version of the App is in the "More Section"
* We have a new Facebook Page Villages GPS - Home | Facebook Please “Like” our page. We will be adding some “Did you know’s” on there.

Hopefully, you will like everything we have done and tell all of your friends and family. If you don’t like it… Don’t tell them (LOL)!

HOW TO GET THE UPDATE:

ANDROID Version 3.5
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.

Everytime I try to open the app it says Internet not available check your internet connectivity and try again. I'm on the internet and can use every other app and goolge on my phone.

The program HAS improved, but the map does not move with you as you drive. You drive but the map does not advance. You have to swipe it to your location, which is dangerous to do while driving. Can you fix this?

Hi and Thank you for contacting us.

It's strange... Most iPhones are working great but there are a few that are getting hung up like that.

Our developers have been notified and we will add a message here as soon as they have a fix.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

I have followed your instructions three times deleting the app, turning my Android phone off and back on, reinstalling the app, clicking "Allow" for the pop ups and still get the same error message. "Internet not available, Cross check your internet connectivity and try again."
