GPS road navigation - Navitel Navigator

It is always interesting to try new navigation app. Especially if it has over 20 million of users. Last month it was Navitel Navigator. At first moment it looked promising, but I quickly found some big issues.

+ Good and custamizable user interface (dashboard).
+ Geosocial services.
+ Nice weather presentation.
+ Lane assistance.

- App often displays strange weather informations (from Gismeteo).
- Bad map packages. Slovenia is in Balkan package and you must install the whole package.
- Bad route planning. Beside that, the planned route is sometimes shown with straight line on display (not on roads).
- You can't select fine tuning options for route planning (Fast, Short, Green...).
- Even if you select that map looks towards North, it doesn't work as it should.
- Icons on top of the display are too small to use them between navigation.
- Many errors on map (including spelling errors).

Developers have a lot to do. To be honest - I expected more from this navigation.
