Does anyone use the Navigon app on their smart phone? And are you happy with it?

Asked by rooeytoo (26961points) February 29th, 2012

For the most part I am satisfied with its performance but I can’t convince it that there actually is a house at the address I tell it. The maps are all up to date but when I tell it where “home” is, it insists on ignoring that info and only giving me the option of going to a house in the next block. Why do you think this is?

You may need to re-calibrate your phone. Do it outside without too much tree cover and the situation should improve.

Hi @Kayak8 – Thanks for your response but what exactly do you mean by that? And how do I do it?

@rooeytoo It depends on what type of phone you have. I would google the name of your phone model with “calibrate GPS” and see if you are able to find the instructions. Typically, you have to have your phone on the calibrate setting and you have to rotate it in all three axis directions until it shows that it is done (on my phone, the icon turns green).
