    Thanks for the link. I did not know where to call Apple concerning App Store purchases and I did not think it was the same number as Apple Care.

    App Store refunds

    I recently made a purchase of an app option using an iPhone (it was an iPhone app) and found that it would not work on my vehicle's info system as described in the app advertisement. It had only been...

    I checked my iMazing backup and it does appear that I can restore a single app. I don't use iMazing very much so I am not familiar with all of its features and mostly had been using it to copy files...

    It is an app on an iPhone so TimeMachine is of no help.

    I do have an iMazing backup of the iPhone from 4 days before and I could just restore the whole phone but I only wanted to return one app...

    reversing an update

    Is there any way to go back to an earlier version of an installed app? That is, if an app is updated, can the update be reversed and the old version put back?

    I know this can be done by restoring...

    Perhaps. I don't know. The nav software had some settings for increasing the GPS accuracy and I used those, but have no idea what iOS changes that made, if any. Whatever the case the mileage figure...

    Why? This is all digital information, not analog, so there is no loss of accuracy when transferring the information. I would think it would not matter.

    As it turns out there were some settings in...

    And the point of my "story" is that when the nav system displayed speed is incorrect so are the alarms. Thus I found myself driving through small cities, keeping under the 30, 35 and 45 mph speed...
  10. I think you are missing the point here. I do...

    I think you are missing the point here.

    I do not rely on the speed posted on the nav device to tell me how fast I am going. I have the speedometer for that. However I do sometimes rely on the...

    I have been trying to avoid adding the phone to my service. It is probably another $40/month and that seems like a waste since I only use it for navigation.

    The iPhone 6 has an inactive SIM card in it and is connected to my cell hot spot. I have been testing Sygic and it is an off-network nav system as far as routine is concerned and I assume it uses GPS...

    Thanks. I did not know that there was a GPS bug in the old iOS versions.

    The iPhone 6 in question was on an old version of iOS that did not even include support for Waze or Google Maps so I...
  14. The saga continues ...

    I borrowed a working iPhone 6 to use to test some of the nav software and how it interfaces with the Sync 3 system on my vehicle using CarPlay. The good news is that CarPlay has absolutely no issue...

    Interesting. I had not even thought about that and the effect it would have. Thanks for posting it.

    I am not questioning your statement, but what iPhones do not have GPS capability? I thought that all current smartphones could handle GPS. I know that wifi iPads can not, but I thought that all cell...

    Make sure your location services are set to ON. If they are off you will not have any GPS information. Check under Privacy in Settings.
  18. I admit that I am not sure about any of this, but...

    I admit that I am not sure about any of this, but I ran both Waze and Sygic on the iPhone 6 without a valid SIM card but connected to a cell hot spot and I noticed two things.

    First, the software...
  19. Thanks, but I did what I should have done before...

    Thanks, but I did what I should have done before I posted. I shut down the iPhone 6, removed the valid SIM from my regular phone and placed it in the 6. Started it up, verified that I could make a...
  20. Thanks. Me too ... :) That has been my...

    Thanks. Me too ... :)



    That has been my thinking as well. I don't see why I should need a SIM card to get a GPS signal and if, in fact, that is the case, then I will just return the iPhone to...
  21. The downside of buying a used iPhone

    OK. I bought a used iPhone 6 to use as a nav device. As I explained in an earlier thread the idea was to use it over wifi only and to interface it with my vehicles info center using CarPlay. I bought...

    This might work in the hilly areas, but does not seem to do much in the flat areas.

    I checked Google Maps for our home, followed the steps and was told that we were at an elevation of 100 feet....

    Thank you for the list. I will check them out.

    I do wonder if any of them are compatible with CarPlay as I do not wish to use the small screen of the phone. The whole idea is to get the apps to...

    I am sure that what you have written is absolutely correct, but I am not particularly interested in terrain mapping. We travel in an RV and that means that part of our decision as to where to stop...

    That was a very helpful summary of how the different systems work. I guess I assumed some of that - my RV has a built-in navigation unit so it works everywhere without any external signal, but it...
