Great app, ruined by Always Active location setting

Great app, ruined by Always Active location setting Always active location tracking is a deal breaker for IOS. I don't know if you expect to sell our location data in Addition to the cost of the app but this is B S. There needs to be a way to toggle "Only While Using". Even Google Maps, GOOGLE MAPS allows for "Only While Using". Why should I use my data and battery while you track me for no reason?
Very good

Love the app! It has very good map and music integration the ui is clean, easy to navigate, and attractive. I'm giving four stars only because it has to missing features that are important to most drivers, landscape mode which most people use when driving, and a night mode that uses a dark ui so the phone screen does not blind you at night (for safety reasons). If these features are implemented, I will change my rating to five stars. Good job guys!
Please please please add landscape mode
by kspecialk319 on 2017/04/22 13:58
When I ride my motorcycle my mount is sideways and having this not allow landscape mode was a huge disappointment. Can you please integrate the ability to do landscape??
Nice, but room for improvement
by neuor on 2016/10/25 11:58
Interface is beautiful and perfect for use in a car. Lack of landscape orientation support and only a few limited apps can be added significantly limit usefulness of this app.
Much Left to Perfect

The app's marketing is beautiful, but wish the app matched. You currently can't use the app with your phone in horizontal orientation, which is the most common way I use GPS app's. The map app is hard to use. Waze exaggerates their UI but its much more glancable. I find myself squinting at the Open Road Map a lot.
Don't waste your time or your $10!
by TucsonDude on 2016/04/16 00:58
Did I just pay $10 for an app that has ads? The four and five star reviews on here must be bogus because the only thing this app has going for it is a decent UI. It hung once and crashed once within just the first 10 minutes. Every option you try to select pops up an add and/or option to purchase additional in-app features. For 10 bucks, I expect to get some features included. The music player fights with Apple Music, screws with the interface to my car (a 2015 Infiniti) and cuts in and out for no apparent reason. (The iPhone works fine on it's own.) Map apps open outside of the UI, which negates the purpose altogether. This app is nowhere near good enough for primetime.

Love it. Better than just an app launcher. Worth buying the pro features. The 3rd party integrations are great.
Solid app, great for customization
by (mrmak) on 2016/01/13 05:33
You shouldn't be using your phone all that much while driving, so building a custom dashboard in Open Road is to be desired. This app is great at providing only what you need from a phone while driving. Stay sharp!
Great for Version 1.0.0
by Klipo89 on 2016/01/09 06:30
Great app! Just needs a landscape mode, a night mode and a little tweaking to the music integration so that it will integrate with the iOS music library like Ecoute does.
Wow!
by ashepardsmith on 2016/01/03 06:14
Intuitive, clean, and incredibly useful. Outstanding app. This is better than the system in my car.
Easy and convenient
by Moqi11 on 2015/12/09 16:47
The UI of my cars touch screen is terrible and this app helps me play my music and pull up navigation easily with better controls. The home/dashboard customization is a great touch too.
The best way to make use of your phone while driving
by Westguy86 on 2015/12/09 15:27
Love that the clear focus of this app is to make major functions of your phone easier while driving, lots of them with just one click.
Slick GUI
by chairliftguy on 2015/12/09 04:27
That opening video sequence, it almost looks like someone's real contacts....
Exceeded Expectations
by CoryMTechnic on 2015/12/09 03:59
For months I'd been hearing rumors that calling Kristin and turning on Park Av would be easier than ever. I can now freely loop Park to Colfax to 17th like a pro and Kristin always answers. Thanks guys. Everything I needed and more.
Safer driving

Great idea for safer driving.

Great app. Really helps me access what I need without distracting me from the road. Get you some!
Love It!
by Sirmikskalot on 2015/12/08 19:17
So easy to use when I'm driving. The interface makes using my maps and Spotify MUCH easier and safer. I love this app.
Must have app for your car
by VDaddy on 2015/12/08 18:08
Love the integration with Spotify and Waze!!
Faster to Use Phone in Car
by AStiegman on 2015/12/08 17:54
Does a good job of making quick presses easier since I only need a few apps while driving. The customization is nice too since it's a one time cost to set up the dash the way I like for driving. Music support is still underway but iTunes support works well for me.
Great app
by Will j haciendas on 2015/12/08 17:41
So easy to add all my favorite people and places. One touch dialing means no more looking down at my crotch while driving and shamefully struggling to find a contact on my way home.
Crazy useful on my commute
by boolaboosky on 2015/12/08 17:39
As someone with a long commute, this app is an amazing lifesaver. Driving to work is way more enjoyable now.
Very good
