Golf Cart Trail GPS App

Getting around The Villages is not easy for anyone visiting or new to the area. Most Villagers own a golf cart and there are over 90 miles of golf cart paths to travel. Getting around The Villages on the cart paths can be quite frustrating and confusing especially with the rapid growth of The Villages and new streets being added frequently.

Until now there have been inadequate options. This handy little app is available now on any Google Android or Apple IOS device (including iPhones and iPads). The answer to your prayers is now here! The Villages GPS app is a powerful GPS tool for navigating these roads, roundabouts and Golf Cart paths and is a MUST for all Villagers especially if your coming to visit or going to be moving here. Not only does it have full turn-by-turn voice directions of all the golf cart paths in The Villages, but you can also use it anywhere in the United States for your vehicle on all roads.

This map app's menu is so easy, intuitive and includes all the Town Squares, Championship / Executive Golf Courses, Recreation Centers, Neighborhood Villages, Pools, etc.

The app also allows you to bookmark your favorite locations, search by address, share locations, shows locations of interest such as parks, hotels, restaurants and shopping. Street, Satellite, and Hybrid views are all available.

Download this handy little app in your Android or Apple device App stores by searching for TheVillagesGPS.com or go to our website for the links. For more details simply visit the website below.

Report a Post Question

We had a question from a user that wanted to know how long does it take for a moderator to address a reported post?

When a post is reported all moderators and admin are notified. The first available moderator will review against the site rules.

If it is a clear violation of the published rules the moderator will address. We tend to address these issues privately with the offending user. If it is a more complex issue multiple moderators and/or admin will weigh in on the issue and necessary actions required.

Please take note:
We have excellent moderator coverage but we do not have 24/7/365. So when you report a post it may take a few minutes or a few hours or even days if a very complex scenario to address. Please be patient and know we review EVERY issue reported and take them serious.

Also, please do not take action into your own hands. Two wrongs don't make a right. If you report the issue to us it does not give you the license to then attack the poster. Please let us address the issue and that keeps you out of having to deal with the situation.
