    You know what would be a great trick????
    - Make it understand address like Google map does and other apps
    - Make it stop to close when it goes on background. Once again Google and other app don’t do that.

    A great addition would be to allow importing of coorinates of Favorites, possibly via Contacts.

    Green line of My Rout covers/obscures Active Traffic color information on map.

    Active Traffic info is not not visible/usable.
