This port of the original Navdy app works with existing Navdy HUD displays, fixing the maps that failed in the no-longer-supported original Navdy App.

This app also updates all the underlying maps and google libraries for improved phone support going forward.

If you've got the original navdy app or my previous apk repacked version already installed on your phone, you'll need to uninstall them first before installing this - they're incompatible with each other and installation of this will fail.

Note: the early July 2019 releases were rebuilt from scratch on a newer internal release from navdy (see release notes). This unfortunately re-introduced a number of compatibility issues which I'm working on resolving.

If you want to discuss these issues please see the below links for gitlab (can use issue tracker) or reddit, I can't respond to queries in user reviews!
