    Even though I'm not Korean and cannot read Korean, I'm able to navigate really well using this app. It tells me when to get on the bus and sends me reminders when my stop is coming. I gave it four stars instead of 5 because I for me, having an English would make it even simpler to use.

  2. Conrad Philton-avatar

    Liars! I denied permission to access my camera, mic and storage. Description says "You can still use the service even if you don't give the above permissions." When I try to navigate, app won't work unless I grant permission. Uninstalled.

  3. irfan rashed-avatar

    Par excellence. Kakao map is a new era of innovative applications. I have only words of my praise of this map. It has changed my life.

  4. Jakub C-avatar

    Easy to use map in Korea and latest street view photos... Great work!

  5. Panpanut S.-avatar

    Easiest map for traveller, you can bookmark your place and list it in your page.

  6. Yahia Lawane-avatar

    Very practical and must have to navigate around korea easily

  7. Driss El Fakir-avatar

    Very helpful map in Korea . I want to give it 5 stars , but i gives 4 , because I'm a Motorcycle Rider , this app send me to Highways a lot . Which is not good at all . In korean law , motorcycle riders can't go in highways . I've already setup my settings on app that i have motorcycle , but still sometimes, not all times , sometimes i find myself in highway. Otherwise , this app is very good . I love it .

  8. Abir Hasan-avatar

    Very good app. Has more details.

  9. Ingrid Zorba-avatar

    I absolutely love the app. I find it more intuitive than Google maps and being able to see the buses move on the map in real time is amazing. I wish Kakao maps covered other countries! Some parts of the app (for example the notices) are still entirely in Korean, which is the only reason I didn't give it 5/5.

  10. C-avatar

    Generally a Google map user, but since Google map doesn't work well in Korea, I've downloaded both Naver maps and Kakao maps to aid my trip in Seoul, Incheon and Suwon. I found that Kakao map is the best and most accurate in general. However when following calculated routes it can get a bit confusing at times, e.g. arrow pointing in the wrong direction

  11. Youngho Sohn-avatar

    As a foreigner this app is extremely helpful. I use it for driving navigation, bus and subway routes and general location services. It has an English setting so there is no worry about understanding (or misunderstanding) Korean!

  12. Cait-avatar

    App was great until the latest Android update where it now the only location permissions you can select for it are to disable or only allow while the app is running which breaks the feature which tracks your ride while on public transportation.

  13. Ka Rin-avatar

    While the menu is in English, everything else is ONLY Korean: Location names, what kind of train to take, how to walk etc. Completely useless if you can't read Korean, which is shocking as a tourist.

  14. Echezona CHIJIOKE-avatar

    Echezona CHIJIOKE


    This is one of the best apps I've ever come encounter with. Keep it up

  15. Tuure Parviainen-avatar

    Tuure Parviainen


    Great, but the English translation is not good. Many things not translated to English. Otherwise great.

  16. Justin He-avatar

    Using English option but when navigating using public transport, the subway station names are shown in Korean.

  17. Ganesh Chandrasekaran-avatar

    Ganesh Chandrasekaran


    Map is in English, good when you use in Korea. However, in your app it suggests to give feedback and it says, "your feedback is invaluable to us". Hoping you meant valuable:D please update it.

  18. Abdurashid Akbarov-avatar

    Abdurashid Akbarov


    Very good app, you can find things by typing in English. Will work perferct with other assistant apps like Kakao subway, kakao bus an kakao taxi

  19. KeepItReal-avatar

    As an American living in Korea this app is by far a must! Hands down the best app in Korea.

  20. derrick wong-avatar

    One of the better map to use when you are in Korea.

  21. sam tang-avatar

    Very user friendly to local korea address

  22. Makhmud Yuldoshev-avatar

    Makhmud Yuldoshev


    I've been using this App since 2018 and very comfortable.

  23. Bruno Kim-avatar

    A must for South Korea. Knowing how to type in korean is helpful

  24. Franjo Tomljenović-avatar

    Franjo Tomljenović


    Good map and navigation

  25. Kitnots-avatar

    Using this app is very convenient. It's still hard to find certain stores, places, restaurants using English but it improved a lot compare to last year though. And i love the feature of finding public restrooms around you (type in "toilet")😁

  26. Obidjon Kamoldinov-avatar

    Obidjon Kamoldinov


    Probably, the best navigation guide in South Korea. It would be even more handy if people in charge add some minor features. For example, I am in Jongno-gu, Seoul right now and after a while I need a pharmacy in Gangnam-gu. In such cases, it would be better if the app also shows 'pharmacy', 'ATM', 'convenience store', etc on the top of the searchbox for the searched district, not only for current location.

  27. Rochelle Williams-avatar

    Rochelle Williams


    I love this app. It's UI is cleaner and more intuitive than the competition. It connects well to other apps. I also applaud the English language support which is great for tourists and expats. **But please include a faster toggle between English and Korean. Maybe in the maps settings filters. It's too deep in the settings, when asking for help from a Korean or showing the address to a taxi driver. Showing the address in both English and Korean would be helpful.**

  28. Javi Manzano-avatar

    It would have been very hard visiting Seoul without this app. Nice job! One suggestion though (from a tourist point of view) : sometimes is not easy to find locations by name because some places only have their Korean name. It would be great if that could be improved so a location can be found by searching for it using multiple names.

  29. Dark sideee-avatar

    This app is really helpful! (thanks for the creator of this app) for all of the foreign people who will visit south korea, but their's one thing problem in this app, although its translated in english but the information of bus/subway is not translated in english this is the most important , i really hope you will fix this one cause you will help many foreign people to give a smooth flow in their vacation.

  30. Janaka Jayasingha-avatar

    Janaka Jayasingha


    it was Easy to find places .

  31. Breanna M-avatar

    Favorite Map Service in Korea. I like that I'm able to see/find bus stops and get pretty accurate times of the arrival. I also like that I can call Kakao Taxi through this app. One thing I don't like is that I'm unable to search for locations in English on my app, unless it's saved. My app is in English though. I don't have really any other issues/complaints. I share many locations with friends through Kakao and other message applications.

  32. Corbin Cogswell-avatar

    Corbin Cogswell


    Needs a little bit more English support. And above all else, it needs to stop searching for things on the opposite side of Korea. If I'm looking for EMarts in Busan, I don't want the map to jump to Pyeongyang. Would be nice if intercity and express buses had their times listed. Everything else is fairly functional.

  33. sai neko-avatar

    Used this on my trip to korea. It was the first time I used the subways and busses there, but it was very convenient with this app. It even alerts you when it is time to get off and starts to remind from one station before your destination arrives. Thanks to this app i got to conveniently use the busses there without any problem

  34. Companion Unobtrusive-avatar

    Companion Unobtrusive


    It's pretty amazing that this day in age 2019 Google Maps is still largely disfunctional in South Korea. Talk about a country that is so clueless about tourism and wonders why people still choose Japan first. KakaoMaps is sadly your best alternative but not surprising it's still no match for the quality and design Google Maps has.

  35. Deepa Bhatt-avatar

    No navigation cues, all key information is in Korean. It doesn't even understand an address if it's in English. Mostly had no help from the app when I used this for biking and had to rely on locals pointing me in the right direction. Would also help if the app actually tells me my present location and gives me verbal cues instead of me having to check the screen for directions

  36. Scott Bae-avatar

    Works well if you know Korean but English translation and English recognition still needs lots of work. The navigation is very weak and inaccurate when indicating multiple floors or levels. Needs much better navigation guidance notification. Completely lacking accurate turn by turn navigation guidance for walking and it doesn't even have route recalculation feature. Lots of guessing.

  37. Emeline Bu-avatar

    When we type in english it's really hard to find a place 😥

  38. Ellen Bentley-avatar

    Mixed feelings about this app. I have set the language to English, but when I get the travelling instructions it shows the names in Korean, which doesn't help with station names or direction of transport. I have thus not used it. It however shows options when Google maps says it can't.

  39. Anton Kuminov-avatar

    Wow, the perfect app for travelling in South Korea! Saves a lot of time and hustle. The best feature is the alert feature which will tell you when to go off the bus as you go, this way you know both how much time you have and how much stations are left to go.

  40. Hector Riojas-avatar

    I've compared Waze to Kakao maps. Kakao Maps has better routes, and better ETAs by far. The only reason it's not five star, is because a lot of English searching does not work for the Korean maps, when the same searches, in English, work on Waze & Google Maps.

  41. Michael Chang-avatar

    Navigation directions rendered and station names are correct. However, the app is not friendly for an individual who cannot read korean. I would suggest using other Apps that provide English context to navigate in Seoul for the moment until the language capability for this App is enhanced.

  42. Jean Lau-avatar

    I like the app! Unfortunately despite having the settings in English, the turn by turn instructions are all in Korean. So i can't read which road to turn on to. I hope that can be fixed!

  43. Tim Paris-avatar

    It's a real mess with a very partial english translation. It's slow, doesn't give much information and there is a lot of place that it doesn't find. Even so, it's stil' better than Line map (Which wasn't hard ...)

  44. Karen Lim-avatar

    recommended as Most useful for non korean speakers... but when it provides transport options. the name of the train/metro stations are in Korean! so how is that Useful and user friendly to non korean speakers!? 🤔😑🙄 Still need to Improve for sure...

  45. Keith Collins-avatar

    It's just OK. I can change the language to English on the app but it only changes the map itself. Most of everything else with notifications, directions, etc. is still in Korean.

  46. Matthew Gunn-avatar

    extremely useful. able to search and read in English. complete bus to subway routes. Travel time estimates sometimes off. Biking travel times are for speed bikes, not for hybrids or city bikes.

  47. eido-avatar

    The timings and train schedule information is wrong. Idk how many times I had to sabotage my schedule putting my trust in the app

  48. Karen-avatar

    Super easy to use! It can help you find your way even amongst the tiny little streets, and points out your precise location even if you are on a small footpath in the forest like surrounding :) Well done KakaoMap!

  49. Fa Husna-avatar

    It the best app to use only in korea .. really help a lot for travel alone or backpaker, All so there a few thing to update such as shopping name, language & some buses that need to inprove. Please reupdate the language for bahasa some part of it are wrong & have a different meaning

  50. Tigz Tar-avatar

    The favorites folder option is one of my favorite features of this app. It's also great that the different route options also allow you to see the cost of the commute depending on the route you choose to go with.

  51. arianne navarro-avatar

    arianne navarro


    Useful and easy to navigate. My problem is some exit numbers are not shown. I still used this even after my trip to bookmark places in Korea.

  52. Potsy Lon-avatar

    I love it. it can work offline. This is better than Google map because it has better details of Seoul.

  53. Emmanuel Kokloku-avatar

    Emmanuel Kokloku


    Really like the transit alert (alarm) function. It's only working for intra-city now. I hope to see it available for inter-city too.

  54. Hayk Petrosyan-avatar

    Talks too much, really much. this app really like a non-stop talky device, install it and you will start hating your phone)) soo stupid like it can say 10 times take left

  55. James Rosenberg-avatar

    James Rosenberg


    Good, but really want addresses shown in Korean too. If I use this to show a Korean or use car GPS I need to see the 한굴 version too. Keep it up!

  56. Melissa ♥-avatar

    Good app. Only bad thing is when it comes to navigation, the train station names are not in english.

  57. simon blay-avatar

    Its accurate and detailed. But i have one problem . It would be good if they have another one in English .

  58. G'olibjon 99-avatar

    I didn't see like this very useful app before in any country But In Korea. I love it. It helps me go to any place of Korea. Thanks a ton to the creators of this app

  59. james johnston-avatar

    really great app for cycling around korea. elevation, exact listings of certification centers, etc. are all really great. thanks.

  60. Austin Wilt-avatar

    If you learn to read Korean, this app will get you anywhere in the country. Works great all over Korea, even small unpopulated islands!! Great app!

  61. Inhyeong Nam-avatar

    I dont know whats wrong with this app. Always shows wrong my current location, so always get wrong routes. I dont get it. How come the reviews are 4.5?

  62. A Google user-avatar

    Please add offline functionality, like Gmap, so users can download data ahead of time. Not everyone has unlimited data plan.

  63. Rudy-avatar

    This app is perfect when you need to call a taxi within Korea. The taxi will come straight to you and brought you write to your destination

  64. Lim C.K.-avatar

    Easy to use. Most of the time is accurate, but sometimes some information is not updated.

  65. Terrence Yeo-avatar

    Used this cos my google maps apps wasnt smooth at all and this provided more information if you are travelling from place to place while still providing both korean and english names

  66. Su Yin Chaw-avatar

    I love KakaoMaps. I can save my favourites and routes. It is very convenient when planning itinerary and travelling in korea.=)

  67. Di Armbrust-avatar

    So easy to use for westerners and is far better than Google maps!

  68. chang-avatar

    The first problem of thid app are either unable to use without any internet connection or do not offer any offline mode . I do not think developer would thought about that

  69. XIU FANG MAK-avatar

    Can bookmark places. but a little not user friendly when you are trying to navigate when driving

  70. Junguk Hur-avatar

    sending spam plus message after uninstall. even though I leave the chatting room, it keeps sending messages.

  71. June Hee Leigh-avatar

    Definitely No. 1 navigation app in Korea. Easy to use and informs lots of useful transportaion information, eapecially a public transportation.

  72. yurim lee-avatar

    The app speaks English. We drived Gyungju and Busan with this apps. So helpful as Google map doesn't quite right in korea.

  73. Sze Kwong Lim-avatar

    Bus navigation such as bus stop is still only in Korean. Any additional setting required to have English language?




    Have been using since middle 2017 year, and so far recommending to a lot of friends! Very nice app! Like your every Kakao App🙂
