    For iPhone 4s - I'd prefer one that comes with maps so I'm not using to my data.

    cheers

    you could do worse than ask a seasoned driver from a DECENT private hire taxi firm Not one of the garbage firms and racketeering outfits flourishing under Transport for London.

    I take it someone born there with a London ancestry back to the time of the Crusades is allowed to have a go at London as it has become? Even if he refuses to live closer than two hundred miles away

    This week's quiz question: Did Mayor/Future Prime Minister Boris Johnson and President to be Donald Trump both fall off hay wagons - there seems to be a lot of extraneous yellowish stuff sticking to their scalps

    Navigon, I work in sales and drive all over the UK. It's accurate, although it grossly under estimates your travel time. Generally speaking at a fifteen minutes on to journeys that are over 1 hour in duration, and an extra fifteen for each subsequent hour to be on the safe side.

    The speed camera alerts are ok, but be weary of the POI's. As with all Sat nav apps they keep ones that are wildly out of date in the app so they can falsely advertise how many they have in their database.

    I use a sat nav daily to find clients, and I'd be totally lost without it.

    I should probably add that the GPS on your phone can cut out when you're driving in central London, the buildings block out the signal. The app also has a walking and transit function, although I've not used the latter
