What is the best GPS app that gives turn by turn directions?
Definitely Motionx GPS.
Waze is perfect. Free and I don't have to pay extra for voice or subscriptions
Doesn't TomTom also have on-board maps?
Navigon. Has never failed me.
Waze is great, and it's free.
I have Tom Tom, which is good. The only thing I don't like about it is that it always tells me to "Stay to the left...500 feet ahead.." when there is one exit only lane to the right ahead on a 5 lane highway.
I have and like TomTom. As a developer, I don't like TomTom. You can't pass addresses to it from native apps, and then be returned to your app. Makes it hard for some apps...
Can someone compare MotionX and Navigon? I'm currently using MotionX and I'm on the free trial for the voice-guidance, but I don't know the difference really.
Navigon + AroundMe is a perfect combo.
I use Waze + Aroundme but I am trying to find a good offline GPS in bad areas.
What would be the best offline GPS that is FREE, It looks like Navigon you have to pay for.
Wow..thanks a lot for posting that. I didn't know that Around Me tag teams with other Navigational Apps.
I use Navigon, it hasn't disappointed me yet.
Absolutely. I second this.
Which one between Navigon and Sygic?
Waze I never cared for, it depends on your area. Motionx GPS Drive is good for the money and has a cool interface, have used Tom Tom, Navigon and Telenav as well. I can't recall which is better since I'm too used to Google Nav now lol, but MotionX is a bargain for the money for what it offers, though there's a $10 feel yearly for voice guidence.... so after some years it may make sense to just splurged for one of the more expensive ones to have started with like Navigon.
Very satisfied with Motion X.
I used to swear by CoPilot, but then made the jump across to TomTom.
I now swear by TomTom! If you don't mind shelling out the cash - adding the speed camera & traffic options are awesome. The software plans ahead - scans the traffic and advises if there is a faster route around the congestion.
There will be some videos on youtube no doubt so look them up before you decide!
Nobody have tried Sygic??
Motion X Drive by far. On board maps isn't an issue as you can pre-fetch maps before you leave on a trip if you think you might hit dead space. I've gone 3hrs out, pre fetched maps, hit dead space with no signal and never missed a beat.
any other suggestions? I don't want to regret a $50 app purchase... not having demos for higher priced software bugs me
Read the countless existing threads on the topic. There are plenty of posted opinions. Take the initiative when doing your own due diligence.
Subjective matter. Don't assume that your preferences/situation are universal.
