I hope the new app will have a voice. It is very much needed instead of looking at your app while driving. Some day it will cause an accident.

Finally we have stopped the crashing.

The new update just got approved for the App Store and will hopefully be up by Tomorrow night.


How to update to the latest version on iPhone?

Please follow these steps to update your iPhone app.

1. Go to your App Store App
2. Click the Update button on the bottom right.
3. Find Villages GPS
4. Click Update

Also, If you turn on the automatic update apps function, you won’t have to do that for any apps again.

How to turn automatic app updates on.

1. Tap on Settings
2. Scroll down and tap on iTunes & App Store
3. Tap the toggle next to Updates to turn it on.

Also, we are in the middle of redesigning the whole app from scratch and hope to have a all new app ready in a month or so.

Thank you so much for your patience.

Hi and Thank you for contacting us.

The iPhone has two volume settings. One for the ring and another for music. We get a lot of emails saying that the sound isn’t working or is too low. After they tried turning up the volume after clicking Start, it worked.

Steps to check your volume:

1.Turn up your Volume as high as possible before opening the app.

2. Start a route from your home or wherever you are.

3. After you click “Start” and it shows the route, now turn up your volume again. Now you are good to go.

The app is indeed available for Android phones. I found it at the Google Play Store - are you having trouble finding it at the Store?

I'm not sure about the Android version, but my iPhone version works fine.

Then again, it's software. All software has bugs, some more than others.

I've been using this app for about 3 years and am pretty satisfied. How can something not be worth 7 bucks? Even if it didn't work *quite* as well as you hoped, it's still cheaper than 2 cups of Starbucks.

Thank you so much for your support!

You are very correct... There are always bugs and our code was way out of date. that's why we are developing a whole new app to replace this one.

We have been at it for almost 3 months and still have another month to go... WE HOPE!

We have Beta testers standing by to test both Androids and iPhones and trust us.... We can't wait lol.

As soon as the new app goes live, we will post about it. We think everyone will really like it. I know we are very excited.
