    it has turn by turn but that is about it. still not a good in car nav option. your best bet is to have parrallels/fusion windows xp and a good nav app

    RouteBuddy is not yet ready as an ICN solution. We've got some other work to do with the app and maps for the experience to be optimal. It will happen but not yet I'm afraid.

    The only problem I have with it is that it makes me go on some wild goose chases sometimes. It knows there are freeways but despite that it has me drive on streets to got destinations that are neither a shorter route or a faster route. The key item I like about it is that it keeps getting better with the updates. Overall it could be much better but I know they are always working on it.

    Hi Tom,

    we are working on routing and map improvements over the remainder of this year, along with the other new features we have in the pipeline. ;-)
