Only for iPhone 3Gs!!

:
In the Requirements section of the description, it tells you that you need the new operating system (which I have) but does not tell you that you need a 3Gs phone. I don't always read the entire description before purchasing and I assume requirements are given in the requirements section. I wrote to them to tell them it didn't work on my phone and they said "well, first do you have a 3Gs? It requires that." I wrote back and said no, I didn't and it didn't state that in the requirements section. No response.

Too Blurry

:
Can't really see what is behind the walls. Signs are in the way. Too much information, not enough space. Confusing. Fix please and I'll bump my review up to two stars.

Robotvision needs better data

:
Nice Idea but needs work. I do not like the Bing points of interest, they are just advertisements. Flickr pictures seem to lack correct georeferencing. I know I have georeferenced pictures in the area and it does not show up. I know some of the flickr locations are entered incorrectly by the posters, but there have to be several thousand pictures in a 5 mile radius of a location I frequent and I get 25 pictutes listed. I do not like having to hold up the phone to scan around me for a point of interest it is annnoying. I like the way it goes to a map when lying horizontal, but it is cumbersome to locate it by looking through the camera.
