“Being on a fire truck and ambulances and having the direction on my watch helps me to get to the emergency scene faster and safer. Thank you!”

about Gear Navigation

“Great Google Maps companion app, since Google and Samsung won’t play nicely for the sake of consumers. Been using a couple of days with my Gear Sport in a variety of navigation scenarios, and haven’t had any issues related to the app yet.”

Brian R.

“I’m not a fan of placing a phone holder on front window or vents to use the gps so I would use my hands and constantly look away from the road. This app is helping me find my way the safest way possible.”
