Update on Navmii free satnav app - now offers free traffic rerouting

There's been an update, at least to the free UK and ROI edition of Navmii, so that real time routing round traffic jams is now offered for free. This caused me to uninstall Here and reinstall Navmii.

So Navmii now competes better with Google Maps which allows download of limited area to give you data-free navigation. Navmii beats Google now by being able to hold all UK mapping, so no data needed when driving.

To those who will post the Navmii uses Openstreetmaps which is less accurate and it'll send you on a 2 hour trip round the houses, well yes, but you should always review your route first using the processor inside your head!

Who is the traffic provider?
No one beats Tom Tom HD in my experience

I'd agree but Tomtom Traffic is too pricey for 2 traffic dodging trips/week.

Looks like the traffic provider is Inrix, as used by auto manufacturers in car nav, access to Inrix used to be an in-app purchase.

You can have it for free on android...

With free traffic rerouting? Thought that was either limited to 50 miles/month or pay a subscription.

I'll try the hacked Android Tomtom on my backup Huwawei Y330, wonder if there's any chance that memory challenged device will accept it.

Rimi,
Thanks for the links.
Downloaded and installed v1.7 also downloaded v1.8 from the 'cloud' website but it won't install. My mobile gives me some message about 'parsing error'. Any advice would be welcome.
Also I am not clear if I log onto the TT My account after downloading v1.7 or after v1.8.
Thanks

I had exactly same "App loading" issue on my Note 4. Doing steps below got it working with full license valid until 2049

Below instructions will get it working but you'll need to use phone storage not SDCard for the App and Maps (about 1Gb for UK&I Map)

Uninstall TomTom app
Phone Settings>Storage>Unmount your SDCard
Re-install TomTom app from Play store
Start TomTom app and download map
Uninstall TomTom app
Install Hacked TomTom APK
Start App and Re-download map.
You can now Re-mount SD Card

Should work fine now

Why? I've used Waze for sometime with no problems. What are the advantages of this over that for example, of you didn't mind sharing please?

First of all Waze requires internet connection and uses data. This might be expensive for some without data allowance.
And VERY expensive if used abroad..
Goole maps far better for these who don't mind data usage.

TomTom maps are offline,far more accurate and traffic HD is spot on.

I find Waze uses very little data for me, I'm assuming the data it does use is for syncing traffic etc and I have found this much better than Google maps, in that it includes everything from Google plus those from other Waze users. So far I've found it best over Google, Here and my built in car SatNav (not surprised by that one as)

If TomTom is free for Android with similsr/better traffic functionality I'll give it a go and see, thanks

Nothing beats waze/Google maps at an expense of little data..

Original Poster

What concerned me was, unable to close the 3 or 4 pop up tabs without force closing the whole browser (both on phone and PC). The 3 or 4 different unlabelled 'Download Now' icons (still not clear which one is real - they all lead to more popups). And the fake 'Update your Oracle Java' popup.

HERE maps is by far the best free navigation … HERE maps is by far the best free navigation app.https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/here-maps-offline-navigation/id955837609?mt=8https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.here.app.maps&hl=en




Not if you want it not to use much data when receiving live traffic updates. It seems to download map data too, rather than using offline data. Hungry.

Please PM me the hacked Tomtom version if anybody got it

Waze is the worst of them all, if data usage is not an issue then Google Maps is the best. Lately I have noticed that Here takes too long to know your location when in offline mode and turning on data results in consuming too much data compared to Google Maps.

So you'd rather lose HUKD or have them fined over you posting links to hacked copyrighted apps? (_;)
There is plenty of ways to get to the apps you mentioned for people to figure out themselves.

So stop being a tool and think outside of your bubble...

They have to, legal requirment. Just think yourself lucky he didnt ban you too.

I use waze for between 500 and 1000 miles most weeks. It is fantastic, and google doesnt have gps speed camera locations.
It does however gobble data, and by relayion battey power.
