Shellbacknh - Very Helpful App
Villages GPS is very helpful getting around the trials and tunnels that make up the paths in the villages. i took two stars off for different reasons; 1). each time the navigation prompt "speaks" through the bluetooth connection, it "knocks out" whatever musing is streaming and the music needs to be restarted manually 2). there does not appear to be a feature to de-select voice prompts for navigation (as a work-around for item #1 above). Having the music constatntly interrupted for each prompt can become irritating on some of the longer routes (over an hour). other navigation apps (maps, waze, google maps) intterupt the music for the prompts but the music resumes after the prompt is complete but those apps do not provide the detial required to navigate all trails and tunnels. Keep up the good work!
Egrnntruegrhnfjrhrj - Highly recommended
Essential excellent app for anyone in the villages using a golf cart. I’d tried Apple maps, Google maps in bicycle mode and the villages app but found them essentially useless for golf cart travel. This is the only one I’m aware of that knows the golf cart paths and streets carts are allowed on AND gives spoken directions. Without villages gps I would have a very frustrating hard getting around by cart. Very good value as the developers only charge once. Frankly, I’d be willing to pay a monthly or yearly subscription if I had to, rather then give up the convenience of this app, as I use my cart quite a lot. I’d get hopelessly lost without it. I highly recommend it. I had a question and I emailed support at 5:00 AM Sunday morning and got a reply by 8:00 AM the same Sunday morning. Rare to have such quick service these days, better then I get with apps I pay lots more for. I highly recommend it.
Larry from Bellerose - Like having a personal guiding star.
This a very intuitive and user friendly app. I have spent a lifetime living in a city that is a simple grid layout and without GPS traveling to new places can be confusing. And that is just using roadways now there is a major network of beautiful golf cart paths to explore.
Entering an address is simple and using the preloaded destinations for shopping, country clubs, golf courses town squares are just a few screen touch away.
As a new full time Villages villa owner this GPS makes me feel “at home”. I travel this paradise with confidence. A trip by cart or car to a Town Square, a Rec Center, a golf course or a shopping run is a breeze.
I have seen some great scenery, nature and wildlife. It has taken me through places I never saw during the Lifestyle experience. Almost I every I discover something new.
jrgboat - App directions issue
My wife and I both have iPhone 7+, and have been having random issues with the app not giving auto or cart directions when you pick directions by cart or directions by auto. When you hit cancel and it returns to previous screen and try it again, it will do the same. This does not occur all the time, but it does occur enough to be reported to you.
BokeeliaJim - Great App for golf cart driving in The Villages!
I had been using the previous version of the app on my iPhone (iPhone 11), which wasn’t geared toward iphones. It kept crashing. I finally got around to contacting the people at “Villages GPS” by email and they responded within a matter of minutes. There were a few emails back and forth during which it was explained to me that I needed the new version of the app which does work on iPhones. I downloaded the new version, tested it out over the past few days, and am very happy with it. I highly recommend it! I think the people who have left bad reviews probably are using an older version of the app.
JwizChick - Not Updated, iPad Version
I am very disappointed in your app, especially the iPad version. I will keep the iPhone version, but the iPad version is useless, out of date, and now has ads. I paid for the iPad version twice, once for each iPad, no ads. It no longer does what it was advertised to do, and I want my money back... for each iPad. I will expect a credit or I will contact Apple.
On the iPhone version, it is out of date and the grammar poor. Most people who are looking for directions to a pool don’t know that perhaps you updated the Rec Centers and not the Pools. Why would you not update them all? Some pools in Southern Oaks are not even listed under Pools, even though they have been operational over a year. Willow Tree is an Adult Pool, not a Family Pool, and Chitty Chatty is not considered in Wildwood, it is in The Villages. Shall I go on? You certainly don’t do your homework.
Kbroggie - Great app and super support
This is a great app to use when trying to get around the villages by golf cart. Like others have said however I would like for the music to automatically be lowered and then resume playing once the voice direction commands have been given. Other than that I can’t complain about the app at all! Support is superior. I had issues with getting the app to open after the update and I was in constant email with the support team who were quickly able to get the problem fixed so that the app started working again. True customer service at its best!
Not artsy fartsy - Lifesaver in the days of covid
I bought my house in March but couldn’t get here until June, by then Florida had become one of the biggest hot spots for covid. Neighbors were welcoming and friendly but could not show me around in the golf cart. So I made daily exploration trips in the golf cart and found so many amazing shortcuts thanks to the app! It’s been an adventure every day. I could find these places in my car but golf carts are a big part of the fun in TV and the app makes it so easy. One suggestion, the Country Club pools are marked FP for Family Pool, they should be PP for Premier Pool as only Premier members are allowed. Thanks, I look forward to more southern discoveries in the future!
Jo Budzen - VILLAGES GPS APP THE BEST WAY TO NAVIGATE THE VILLAGED
I have used this app exclusively for years because it has voice directions and always gets me to my destination. But yesterday the audio didn’t work. I emailed the staff and they responded IMMEDIATELY with help. But nothing solved the issue though they emailed me more than once with advice right away. Then they suggested I delete the app and install it again from the App Store. Now it works perfectly again. The staff’s quick help enabled me to get to the golf course on time using the voice directions. Kudos to a very responsive staff.
Ron H2o - Updated App hits the mark!
My app was recently updated and I was unable to open it at all. I reported it to the apps team and their response was amazing! They kept me updated and had the problem resolved in less than 8 hours. I used the app today and the improvements take my rating of the former app of a 3 star rating to a full 5 star rating. The new features and enhanced usability absolutely make it the best app for navigating The Villages. A must for newbies and also helpful for residents that have been here awhile. Good job!!
country_ry - A must have
Using this app opened up a whole new world for us. We visit family in the villages every year or two and love using the cart paths to get around,but never felt comfortable “cruising” until this year. With the help of the app we were able to navigate the bridges, tunnels,check out several pools and jump from square to square for dinner and dancing all by cart. The cart driving is such a fun and unique experience and thanks to you we really enjoyed the villages this year!
NJ1975 - Great APP for all Villagers
Recently I had a location-based problem. The Team diagnosed it very patiently and were very helpful in solving the problem. I am an experienced IT person and could not figure this out on my own on my iPhone. It turns out it was an Apple-related issue that the Team helped me to fix. Can’t say enough about the support Team other than to say they are better than the Apple helpdesk and very patient and good listeners.
Diane Carol - Doesn’t work! No directions and no talking
I downloaded this app and tried it for the first time this morning. Piece of junk. It doesn’t give any directions, never mind talking while using the golf cart.. I will be disputing the chRge with American Ezpress. I filled out the “contact us” form but it isn’t able to be accepted on their end. NOT RECOMMENDED!!
Update: the developer emailed me and said I must be using the app wrong. I am using it correctly. I give up using the golf cart directions. I have talked with others and they also say the app is useless. Please issue me a
credit or I will be disputing this charge which is on my American Express. I know how to use apps!!
Marlene Of Liberty Park - Take the fear of driving around the Villages and buy this app!!!
I just used the app for the first time and it was awesome!!! I had to travel 24 minutes by golf cart and the directions were right on. I even turned the wrong way and it corrected me immediately with voice and picture! Thank you for designing this app. I will not be afraid to travel anymore by golf cart in the Villages!
Copterman. - Relief from navigation anxiety!
Straight to the point and easy to use. Excellent display especially if destination is pre-loaded (ie pools, shopping etc)
We had a problem with initial download in that it would not start when prompted.
The GPS Team answered my email almost immediately and worked tirelessly to resolve the problem. Outstanding service. All vendors could take a lesson from them.
MG bassman - A must have
This is probably the most used app I have on my phone. It works great. I read some of the negative reviews and must say I have had no issues at all. Sound works great, directions a great. I saw some comments about advertising. If there is advertising, I am oblivious to it. I don’t remember seeing any intrusive advertising.
Finally, the developers are so easy to contact for any issues. Again, I find this app invaluable.
" the don " - Greatest GPS for The Villages, Florida
I have owned this app for over nine years. It is very helpful and easy to use. The best thing about this app is that the company keeps it updated at all times and with the fast expansion of our town it is extremely important to have an app that stays current at no additional cost to any of us that use Villages GPS. Don
ldonj - Updates are better now
I don’t even you trying to stay current in the villages. It is much improved and badly needed. When I wrote my original review it took me outside TV to go to an address near Havana CC. NOT HAPPY then😬
You missed the library in Pinellas plaza along with the county offices there. You might also add “Shooters World “ being built on Powell Road. Going to be a very busy place when they open.
Dan57J - The Best GPS App
This App has kept me from getting lost more times than I can count. Maps are very detailed, easy to read, and accurate. If an issue comes up their team is great with communicating to me, and the fix was less than a day. Well worth the money, and a one time purchase gets you all the future updates.
L11111111111111111111 - Not Updated use the Free App
This has the potential to be a great app but at the present it isn’t. The free app is much better because it is more up to date for finding addresses and business and it does not lock up.
Upgrade to 4 stars. The app developer responded quickly to complaints with an explanation of how to find locations that do not immediately show up in the search.
New Villager - Needs Updating
We’ve only used the app 12-15 times, but 3 times we ended up being taken to routes that no longer have golf car access. According to a local, one of those routes was changed “years ago.” We paid for the upgrade and feel the routes should be updated!
Gmwoj - GREAT app and even better customer service!!
We had ONE problem with the app that would have confused our guests & they fixed it within ONE business day!! We come here every year & this app always makes a HUGE difference in our stay! Thanks for the app and the great customer service!!
M🇺🇸 - Awesome for Visitors
We are visiting my boyfriends parents for 2 weeks and when we venture off on our own, this has been so helpful! There’s a bit of a learning curve and sometimes we have to slow down for it to “find” us but 5 stars still because it’s a godsend! Well done and thank you:)
Lina Romeo - Great APP!
I have been using this app for several months and each time it has been extremely useful. When there is a concern the staff has been very helpful in resolving any issues. Highly recommend this app for newbies as well as seasoned residents to get you where you need to go.
ladygps - TThe team at Villages GPS have been terrific
I tried to find my way to Silver Lake rec center and was having some difficulty with the GPS.
I was put in touch with the team and within 5 minutes of sending an email they called me right back! Kudos to everyone at the site! Job well done
I U Ron - Problem with sound
I was having a problem receiving any sound. I contacted the company and they responded to me promptly. After the exchange of several text messages and one final telephone call the problem was resolved. I would highly recommend this company.
Subgiy6290 - In the hands of an adequate programmer, this app could be a winner.
When searching for an address in The Villages, DO NOT hit the “Search” button. If you do, the app will go into a loop from which it cannot recover. The only solution is to close the app, delete it from your phone, then reload from the App Store. Once typing in the address you want, just wait , and eventually selections may appear. For 95% of addresses in The Villages, use Google Maps bicycle mode instead. You’ll be happier in the long run.
damar61 - Almost useless. Improvement needed!
I tried to use this app to take the golf cart around. It crashes in every tunnel and you have to put in your destination all over again. To make matters worse, while trying to use the app to get to the Lake Miona rec center, it took me many, many miles out of the way, and left me in the middle of Shay street, rather than at Miona. Having wasted almost two hours going the wrong way, I was unable to get my swim in. Can't believe I paid for this app!
Opaldenise97 - Great!
If you want to get around The Villages in your golf cart this is the app for you. It has mostly all of the places you would want to go and the support team is most helpful and prompt if you have any questions or problems.
Oside Lady - Always problematic
I really need this app to get around The Villages in my golf cart otherwise I would not keep it.
The app has frozen many times while in use. Sometimes when I try to search for a location it will stay stuck in loading. The only way I can clear out of loading is to delete the app and reinstall. Talking with their help department did not help.
intox.drybonehead - Very out of date maps
We just bought a home after deciding between a home in Chitty Chatty and Bradford, both are newer Villages where the homes are already built, people have already moved in, the rec pools are open etc. I bought this app to get me from Brownwood to my new house by cart and the app doesn't even have either Village added. The Villages built entire communities faster than this app could simply add the streets. How disappointing.
rrb48310 - Hello anybody home?
Was trying to get a route to Publix for my father-in-law, but in shopping and even under grocery stores Publix’s is not there. I was thinking it could but the search radius but a WinnDixie that I know I have to drive past two Publix is on the search. It would be great if I could “drop a pin” like on other map programs too.
Tried to use contact us thru the app, it didn’t work
andybost - AWESOME GPS for golf cart!
Whoever developed this app put a lot of thought into it keeping it as user friendly as possible. The main menu is a great idea.... no typing, a couple of taps and you have directions.
I’ve been coming to The Villages for years and it is always difficult remembering how to get around (everything looks the same). One wrong turn and you can be going the complete opposite direction. Now (by cart or car) I know the quickest route every time.
Great purchase.....5 STARS!!!!!!
Andy Bost - NC
dw8655 - Lifestyle Experience locations need added
Bought this app to be able to navigate on golf cart during Lifestyle Experience. Got lost getting groceries first night in The Villages and app doesn’t recognize the street we stayed on or Atwood Bungalows. Perhaps there should be a way to pinpoint your current location and save it as home. App also told us to turn right early putting us on 4 lane road that wasn’t permitted for cart traffic.
Carol C for GPS app - GPS
This is the only gps with voice directions..
The gps team was very helpful in troubleshooting when I had an issue.
I’m very happy I purchased this app for cart path directions..😎👍🏻
Zeek10 - Terrible!
I’ve been using this for two days now and it’s been a chaotic experience. The app freezes, seems to think I’m somewhere in South America, has adverts that despite a ‘close’ icon cannot be closed, doesn’t know where tunnels are located, and doesn’t know the difference between vehicle roadways and golf cart trails. The free Apple Maps app is a significant improvement over this costly and regrettable attempt at navigation assistance.
uncgrad2005 - Great Suppory
I am new to TV and downloaded the Villages GPS app. Had an issue with loading and sharing with wife. I send email to support, and yes, even on a Sunday I received a reply walking me through the process. Now, that is SERVICE!!!
kdsez - Fast Fix
The new version apparently had a bug with opening to the Home Page for iPhone. Within 24 hours, the problem was resolved. New version works great. Great response time!
Pollywog'st - Village GPS
I really like the Village GPS. I use it all the time to determine where something is located and to travel to various locations in The Villages. The voice activation is a huge plus. I recommend it to everyone.
BAB. Labelle - Great app
When I was new here in 2015 I soon found the app and it was invaluable with specific info in The Villages. And now I continually use it. With the recent upgrade it is even more useful.
PJVicary - Must have app for all Villagers
All the effort that has gone into this release make it a must have for new and old Villagers. Maps and audio exceptional. This is a 9.5 out of 10.
Okatie Jack - Love this AP
Use it primarily in my golf cart. This is a “ must have” if you are visiting or new to The Villages. If you have an issue, the response from developer is very quick. Well worth the modest price.
jlh45 - The Villages App
Awesome app and the best customer service. I emailed that I had a problem and they called me within minutes and we're extremely helpful. I fully recommend.
big dogie - Village GPS APP
Had a problem with the app, contacted the team about the issue, the response was quick, and everything was resolved. Great job !
Lost in The Villages - Villages GPS
Driving by car directions are very good but I can get that for free from many apps. Golf cart directions which is the most important part of the app is terrible. The app becomes confused when you get near a tunnel and the directions given to you is always far ahead of where you are actually located. NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!
johotx - Renove the Ads on paid versions or give control to your customer
Didn’t upgrade the app and purchase the original The GPS app to be presented with ads from google-Ads. this change can only indicate your providing user-data beyond location info to google in return for extra Dollars 💵 in you pocket by not allowing users to disable ADs.
mcirish101 - Awful App and not worth $6.99
This is THE worst app I have ever used.... I have a newer iPhone with recent IOS and the app barely stays open..... shuts off at almost every cart tunnel..... and there are a LOT of tunnels
I found it literally impossible to type in an address and then be able to navigate to that address.... I got the circle of death ...maddening!!
Please fix - thank you
Lindymagoo - Worthless...do not spend the $$$
Very expensive for an app that cannot load an address you are trying to find. Seems it only wants you to get to/from the squares or the golf/rec centers. Should be zero stars...I want my $$$back. Shuts off randomly.....does not warn you when golf cart paths suddenly end....I could go on. More frustration than anything....
gayrushing - Does not detect regular Internet on phone
I purchased this app to go through the villages using the golf cart trails it work for a little while and then it quit it does not recognize my Internet that I have which is the LTE 4G at think her some clothes for that anyway I need to know what to do either remedy or give me money back thank you
LostintheVillages - New version is terrible
The updated version deleted all my Favorites, which was upsetting, but the fact that it also has trouble locating places like grocery stores renders it useless. There are stupid mis-spellings like “cementary” for cemetery, and why they would devote a whole tab to “cementaries” beggars belief. It was 1000 times better before the upgrade.
