New app Navigation apps are complex and I did not expect much from the first release. The searching should be improved, as should the fluency of the app. Voices are good, but spoken street names would help. Why did you get rid of the celebrity voices? The selection is rubbish now.

Mark Vman

We miss her Where is Jen Hawkins voice? Why did you get rid of her? She's Australia's sweetheart. Good thing I own a Holden the Wog Boy would be proud of. But seriously, it would be good if you could give multiple choices of routes like Google Maps does. Would also be good if I could drop pins (etc) on the map for quick access, rather than scroll through the history.

Mitul Shah

Nice application. Can find new address, those are not available on Google maps. This app is still slower.

Stjepan Nikolic

Intruding app Application activated itself!!! Potential privacy violation.

Ken R

No celebrity voices Why have the extra voices gone? Not as good, going back to maps.

Mary Sacco

Where is Dame Ednas voice miss her cheeky comments.

madison heenan

This is the best navigation Best navigation system I have ever used. And I can install it on my phone. Love whereis for everything, to find out info and pics on where it is I'm going and how to get there, without it telling me to go somewhere I didn't want to go. And for never losing its GPS signal. Love the whereis app.

Edge Sundblom

doesn't let you down excellent

Box B

Jen Hawkins voice gone I will uninstall as jen hawkins voice is no longer available

Rob Stephens

No Billy ? No whereis I only downloaded this to get billy... no billy, so I'm uninstalling

John Li

Uninstalled when they got rid of Jennifer Hawkins voice. Always did prefer a female voice over male for gps, but Whereis only have male voices now. Going back to my Garmin.

Shaun yvettete Thiara

Top Navigation Easy to use, accurate and comprehensive

Anthonie Parker

Good app Not a bad app.... finds addresses that others wont. Needs more voices though. Ill give 5 stars once the GPS finds ME quicker though... just takes a tad too long

Alan Bennett

Handy for booking a hotel room.


Its ok but sucks now the 12th . man's voices have been taken away. Shame on you whereis you suck

Ios version 10x better. I used this everyday on my old iphone 4s. It was brilliant. You would do a place to place search and then not actually hit navigate. You could then just track yourself on the map as you drove. This is not possible on android as the blue dot dissapears unless you manually keep replacing it. Also the search does not remember previous addresses like on ios. Please get this up to the excellent quality that it is on ios. For me now it is not useable.

Johnny H Johns

Why does it need all permissions? Upon installing this app it asks for basically total access to your phone's private information. Considering this company is in the business of trading in your private information you should think long and hard before installing this software. I immediately uninstalled it before ever running it - you should too!

Mark Sparks

No "send to a friend setting" SHATTERED I only downloaded this app coz my mate has it on his crappy old phone and can send free SMS but I can't find the "send to a friend" setting, why is this? I would've given 5stars if i could msg for free like he can, so until I can get "send to a friend" or even be told how to do so this crappy app gets 1star, I really hope that I get a reply on why I can't get or find this setting.. Even if I get a reply and can't get free SMS I'll still give more stars just for making an effort to reply to me...

Mohit Virmani

Good but needs lot of work to match the level of Google maps Navigation is good and very useful in locating certain addresses that don't show up on Google maps, so props for that. Unmetered usage for Telstra users is also a great bonus. However, the app itself needs a lot of polish and work to match the high level of Google maps.

Patrick Salmon

Excellent App I had this App on my iPhone 5 And I was stoked to find it in the Android store for my Sony Xperia Z. Easier to use. Faster to get moving, Shorter set up time when compared to my 11/2012 Model NavMan. You would be hard presses to find one better.

Jason Goh

Good start Really looking forward to the continued development of this app. It's a really good start with the ease of searching and celebrity voices etc. Next stage should be spoken street names with a computerised voice, night mode, zooming in when you get to tricky intersections and lane guidance on confusing multi lane ways. I'm asking alot considering its a new app I know! :) Keep the development going and keep your aim of making this Australia's best navigation app!!!

Tom Dennis

Very good Very good app, but still I can not find a navigation app that has the ability to show navigation for more than two locations. I think this app would be perfect if it had an option for a multi point route where if I want to take the partner and kids for a touring drive, I could have the option of point a (home) to point b (township for lunch) to point c (adventure playground) to point d (winery) to point a (back home). A feature like this would be fantastic and very handy =) otherwise graat app!

zgOHCo ogQYO

Terrible at finding locations The navigation location doesn't work at all- you put a starting address in and a final destination address in and the app changes the final destination address once you push start navigating . Too buggy at this stage to rely on.

Troy White

Excellent but some glitches It's a great app when it works but it sometimes confuses itself - when entering addresses it keeps making suggestions rather than just taking the address. Infuriating!

Frank Treble

Crap First time I used it, it kept replacing the address I was looking for with some random business not even in the same suburb

nabindra tiwari

Best Aussie navigation Though it is the best app.I just give 3 star till it is available as off line map navigator.please I can spare some money to this .keep work hard.

Melissa F

Fanatastic, thanku! SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB II. Nice app! Of course any navigation app will request info from your phone but these functions can be switched off once you have finished using navigation ie. GPS sattelite locations, locations services, etc.... Therefore if u go and download another GPS app, it will request the exact same info, so u may as well keep this app because its great and free!

Tamara Birney

Love Love it wen I catch my man who's Ben caught at the pokies thn can't lie 2 me like he usually duz

Gregory Opera

Poor effort, with LOTS more work needed. In comparison to other navigation applications (many of which are free!), this application is slow to keep pace whilst driving and thus often leaves the screen out-of-sync with one's position; the directions suggested are often wrong or completely illogical; the application is prone to freezing and the "celebrity" voices are a bunch of no ones. The original WhereIs Navigator ("Garmin Navigator" in the Play Store) is much better... From a reputable company like Sensis, this is a very, VERY poor effort!

Kingsley Purvis

Won't download Keeps saying that it won't download to default location even though I have never downloaded it before.

Brian Pedersen

Good app An excellent app I use it all the time & it gets us to our destination correctly. We used it last night and it had to recalculate a few times as we knew a different route to our destination.

Eric I

Disappointing app from a well known company Shows more maps than Google maps, has interesting celebrity voices and data is unmetered for Telstra customers. But all that's useless when the app can't even do basic nagivation. Everytime I put in or search for a destination it changes it to a random business when I click on get directions...EVERYTIME! Until that's fixed this app is basically useless for what it was designed for

lindy van heurck

Lindy samsung s3 4g Better than Maps and Navigon!

Robert Harvey

Garbage Doesn't work. Can't click on the map and get 'directions to here?. Can't enter an address without it defaulting to somewhere hundreds of kilometres away. Ugly interface. The only potentially good thing was the voices but I couldn't get far enough into the app to try them!

Aus Taurean

Great, but missing features Works well on my HTC, voices are Gr8 but needs basic features, ie. Touch screen for 'route/navigate here', Where Is 'NIGHT MODE', needs 'over speed' warning and choice of %over before warning, the klm to next intersection is too large, could be more info in that huge box.. What about zoom to speed and intersection, spoken street names, let alone advanced features.

Emily D

Not always the best route The route calculated doesn't take into account congestion or how busy roads get the closer you get to major centres, and doesn't let you edit roads to account for it, therefore very fustrating when you are trying to get from beyond west of sydney to down the coast and it takes you the most congested route possible!

Bryce Stevens

Very good. Use it every day for work Shows new streets that google doesnt have!

Saurabh Upadhya


Sir-Terry Wilson

Great Installed on all my devices. Wouldn't go out without it.

Jacqui Gibbs

Where is I found this to be an absolutely fantastic handy app, it does avo much, my fave when out of credit, you can send messages! 10 per day per number. 40characters per message but sometimes that's all it takes

brian pickert

Where is Helpful when in inmer cities

Cameron Alexander

What happened? I used to love this app now it doesn't function at all. Has no results all the time and the map is just black. I've re installed it and it still doesn't work. Disappointed that Jen Hawkins voice is gone also. And it consistently struggled to find exact addresses when entered, you had to change rd to st etc just for it to find and correct the address to what couldn't find when you typed it in correctly.

DR Ayers

Free version allows you to see house numbers around your location, a rarity. How many times have you been in the CBD with a building number and can not identify where it is anyway! This eliminates that little panic attack.

Dave Wilton

Great navigation app! It has got me to where i need to be every time i have used it. I have had no troubles with it

Sam Su

Good for finding missing streets. But... It seems that it does not feature the List streets button like the websitte does.

Michael King

It's good for the most part But I can't type in the destination for navigation because it keeps flashing with predictive searches underneath, I'm using the Google keyboard

Graham Coppock

Can't go via multiple waypoints Doesn't allow you to have multi destinations like their website does. Please allow us to go via multiple locations!

et howie

Has been playing up recently. Can't enter destination.. Keeps on flashing

lois vitler

What has changed? This app does not work anymore. Very disappointing

Jacque Walliker

Whereis So very useful

Sarah Timmins

Almost perfect I like this app but unfortunately there's no option to let the phone sleep between instructions so it's extremely draining on the battery and also it would b great if the app would store previous trips! Update: App has stopped working properly alltogether, it navigates for approximately 2 minutes then stops giving instructions! Great app!

Ken V

Wrong information Business are being shown on map where they are not supposed to be and I ask for hospitals it came up with hospitality like cafe's. Also business that are no longer in a location is still being shown on map and business that supposed to be in a location is not being shown.

Rachael Taggar ne Gladstone

Only thing good was fast download This used to be an amazing app. When i am about to drive somewhere i start it. It gives me the wrong direction to turn. It doesnt keep giving instructions so have gotten lost. Pretty poor since i always recommended in the past.

Margaret Wilson

Easy to follow, extremely useful when travelling, thank you

Darren Nicholls

Wtf happened.tried going to a popular place and totally sent me in the opposite direction

tahlia pike

Freezing Has frozen 5+ times in a matter of 2 hours. Have to completely restart samsung s5 for it to work

Pete B

Good solid mapping app with mostly reliable address. The street names are clearly visible, which I didn't get with Google


Great app Simple and easy to use. Map data is correct and takes me to my destination without any problems.
