- Fixed a sensitivity bug where it would think you were off route on a wide road.
- Fixed a bug where entering the route from somewhere beyond the first maneuver would not put you on route.
- Various stability fixes.
- Added a screen for sending me crash reports directly when unexpected errors occur.
Overall it’s a much more stable and useable version. If you give it a try and have any feedback please let me know!

I created a turn by turn navigation app which is now available on the Windows Phone store for WP8 devices. I was unsatisfied with either the quality the existing apps or the price, so I went ahead and created one of my own.

If you have been unhappy with the turn by turn navigation situation on Windows Phone 8, like I have, then this is the app for you!
