    Awesome stuff.

    Navigon sure seems to want the most features released as soon as possible.

    Me too have both (TomTom + Navigon) and it's great to have TeleAtlas & Navteq maps in one device.

    Best of both worlds.

    Hi TomTom & Navigon users,
    I have a 3G iPhone without the data plan (too much money). I've been told on past threads that these GPS apps will work on an iPhone without a data plan. But I'm wondering if one of them would work better than the other.
    Any thoughts? (I know the TomTom has a cradle that boosts the signal, so perhaps this would help).
    Thanks, malch

    Correct. You don't need a Data Plan since both of them have the maps on the Phone itself. Without the TomTom cradle, I would recommend you get Navigon. However, if you plan on getting the cradle then TomTom would be your best choice if you want even better signal (Although both are working great for me without it).

    i lose signal all of the time with navigon when i'm driving around in toronto. haven't tried tomtom yet but based on reviews apparently its a huge letdown and was not worth the wait at all.

    GPS finding was always quick when I tried this app. Those are some nice additional features.

    Nope, almost every time is immediate for me, and those times it isn't (few and far between in my two vehicles), it's only 2-3 seconds.

    I'm even able to get a GPS fix in my office (corner office, lots of windows) :D

    Supposedly the TT cradle will work with other 3rd party apps.....might be the best of both worlds to use Navigon app with the TT cradle...however, I still have a hard time justifying the price when dedicated GPS unit prices are so low now.

    Is Navigon really that nice looking?

    Hey all,

    I am torn between getting iGO My way and Navigon. The screens I always see for Navigon for that 'Reality View' for interchanges and exits look awesome. Did they just select one that looked awesome, and most others are not so great, or do they all generally look that realistic with the city view behind it and all? All the reviews look like they simply use the images Navigon supplied.

    Uh, seriously?

    Pretty sure those screenshots aren't the actual size of an iPhone, and yet I can see that the street names listed are "Harvestehude" and "Rotherbaum."

    Feel free to invest in some glasses/contact lenses... :rolleyes:

    Amen !!;)

    p.s. Just used a complete iPhone holder and works great for the gps signal and the voice over the spkrs sounds awesome actually clears it up some what (not as scratchy):)

    @fasttech - I have iGO My Way and can tell you there's a difference between how each does the reality view. Navigon puts up a static image with the text for the specific sign and the arrows showing which way to go, replacing the actual navigation screen. It does not show the vehicon and stays until you've passed the point of the split.

    iGO overlays the sign info and lane markers directly on top of the actual navigation screen. The vehicon remains active along with the rest of the regular information on speed, time, etc. I can't speak as to which way is better but to me although I love the look of the Navigon, I also wanted to see my vehicle in relation to the road, etc in the live window. You may prefer Navigon's implementation, but those are the differences.

    Thanks a lot FearlessFreep! That does make a difference, and I didn't know thats what Navigon did.
