    Almost the same as Route 66. Nothing wrong with that but still no junction view and the same old maps.
    But it's working fine for a free app.

    The road where I live is one way street but it's still the wrong direction.

    Tried long ago to report this to Route 66 + Open Street Maps, spent more than an hour how to do this but I gave up.

    Should have an option in the app to report these things.

    I've tried this app for a bit and i must say that I'm quite surprised by how well it works for a completely free product. Only thing missing is the HD traffic which they removed in the newest version. Not much reason to pay for Route 66 i would say. OSM is still the best when it comes to routing walking routes.

    I have two questions though:

    1. I downloaded the two maps i use the most to my phone so i can use it offline. Where can you see which version of the map you have currently downloaded/installed and will there be any notifications of some kind when there is/are newer map(s) available?

    2. In the menu you can set the speed of the demo route (1 to 10) but where/how do you actually start the demo of the current planned route? Maybe I'm missing something very obvious here but i seriously can't find it.
