This is Not Navigation Directions…

When you click to start it gives you the option to see the time and distance it takes to get from those two places by golf cart or automobile. Click Start to switch between the two.

If you want regular Directions… Find the place you want to go to and once you find it, click directions by Automobile or Golf Cart.

If you have any more issues or questions, please contact us at the email address below for faster replies.
What a woderful suggestion......good luck.

My bad... I just emailed you back.

For others reading this...

Most of the newer places south in The Villages was bought from another city. Either Wildwood or Fruitland Park.

So if you search the address and add either Wildwood or Fruitland Park at the end, instead of The Villages...you will have a better outcome.

I'm not sure when that will change over to The Villages... Could be a few months depending on how they process that new information.

FIXED! Thanks to "that mysterious person on the other end of the internetwebs" at VillagesGPS, we got it all figured out. And so for those who have a Samsung Galaxy S7 running on the current version of Android. If you load the GPS app to your phone and have trouble with a crash when trying to use Point to Point, do this:
1. Go to SETTINGS on your phone.
2. Go to APPS
3. Scroll down your apps list til you find (and press) on the VillagesGPS.
4. Press the word "Storage" - that's under "Mobile data" and "Battery."
5. Press "Clear Cache" and that should solve the problem.
if it still crashes,
6. Hit the back arrow up top (next to the word Storage), press Storage again, and "Clear Data."

You'll lose any data you've plugged in previously so only click the clear data as a last resort. But if you're only just installing this for the first time, you won't have anything in there anyway so it won't matter.

BIG shout-out to the VillagesGPS folks. They thanked ME for MY patience. Lemme tell ya. If I was calling the phone company, or any utility, I'd still be on hold waiting for someone to pick up, in the time it took VGPS to acknowledge, address, correct, re-visit, recorrect, adjust, and resolve this.

Marvelous service and that will go into my review on Google Play, once I've had a chance to actually use it in the Villages next week.

Awwwww Thank you so much!
We try our very best to make sure everyone is happy.

Our new technology can be a pain for us because it is custom for "Golf Cart Routes".

We are Villagers too and just keep trying our best and won't rest until we get it right.

Thank you so much!
As you can see on the Play Store and App Store, we don't have the best ratings... We have had our fair share of issues in the past but won't rest until we make it right.

If you can say something nice, it sure would help us out.

Default A NEW Update for Android Users is available now!

It is Monday, February 25.

We are now on Version 3.5

You can follow these steps to see what version your app currently is.

On the app, scroll down to “More Info” and click it.

Then Scroll down to App Version and Click it.

It should say Version 3.5. If not, update it :-)

Search for Villages GPS on the Play Store and click Update.

Make sure your Mute button on the left side of your phone is off.
Turn up your Volume as high as possible before opening the app.
Start a route from your home or wherever you are.
After you click “Start” and it shows the route, now turn up your volume again.

Now you are good to go...
Thank you for your usual prompt response. Used the AP today and the sound is back. I really love this AP. I wish I had it 11 years ago when we first bought here. Highly recommend it. The price is right.
