I just downloaded skobbler which is free on Android marketplace. I don't know if the iphone version is the same but the android one needs a constant internet connection to get the maps, etc. With sometimes patchy network coverage and ever decreasing data plans I don't see this as a good idea.
#3
Really? I used it for several days on the run last month and didn't really make that much of an impact in my data, couple mb at the most.
I like it anyway :)
#4
This used to be free on itunes as well. Thought it was Ok but the signal problem is an issue if you're in more rural areas.
#5
If it's free on android and used to be freee on iphone, why so hot?
#6
I use navfree myself, which is free, not going to vote hot or cold as haven't tried this. Anyone know of any major faults?
#7
There is the free version of this on itunes but that doesnt include the speedcam warnings, so thats what you are paying 59p for with this deal.

I used the free version yesterday and I found it more user friendly than navfree but since they both use the same free openmaps system, I dont think there is any difference with the maps.

As for the data useage, be interested to see what impact it makes, I only used it on a short trip but didnt notice any major mb being used.
#8
i tried this and it could not even find my house.very frustrating binned it off
#9
I don't really belive in any software that is based on openstreet map, which is like wip database. Most of the streets around me are not even listed. So def no go.
#10
Off topic but any of you guys who mention monitoring data usage tell me an easy way to do it?
Thanks
#11
This is usually free and requires a data connection. Why not just use Google Nav instead? Or for normal offline satnav there's Ndrive which is about £8 (9.95euro) for the UK map (£15ish for Europe) including speed cams.

Skobbler Lite is free, this is full Skobbler which was always a paid app, and was about £5-7 IIRC.
#13
Ah. It's still not really worth it.

Ever decreasing? 3 just started the 1 plan - unlimited with no fair usage. I've been pretty happy with 3 since I joined a couple of years ago. I don't really keep a keen eye on the other plans tho.

Three are the exception. Refer to T-mobile, o2, Vodafone etc...

just wondering if there is anything out there that has pre-downloaded maps AND traffic AND speed cameras (accurate ones)/ I use copilot at the moment and it's OK but speed cameras are not always spot on.

Cold, cheaper on installous
#18
Voted cold. Used this before when I was unsure of where my friend lived in Beverley, East Yorks. Took me into Hull, to a "similar" postcode. Needless to say I just used Google Maps. Not worth the 59p they are charging.
#19
Voted cold, useless app

Uses user defined maps and therefore if you want to use it as a satnav forget it! Google maps is just as good

Did anyone try global nav pro when it was free or when it went up to 59p that was far better

Giving heat to a poor app lol

NDrive has been removed from theitunes store hasn't it ? I got it last year, works really well, but there was an issue with the licence or something.

terrible - i got it when it was free and I still believe I paid significantly too much for it
#22
Bought this in November as I had to visit my dad in the Bristol Royal Infirmary. Got there ok, speed cameras were accurate, however on the way back I was told there was "no route available". Even when on the M5 it still couldn't find a route.

I know it's 'only' 59p, but I'd suggest trying the free Lite version first.
#23
i got tomtom iphone app western europe when it was in the sale a crimbo. it is a top class peice of kit. far far superior to a standalone tomtom unit i paid £42 but its well worth it speed warnings, camera warnings, lane assist, google search function is excellent, rock solid reliable and inch perfect. you get what you pay for
#24
Copilot ftw - not cheap though! About £20
#25
I've used the free version on iphone 4 for a while now, and I think its excellent. It has rarely failed on me, and the map interface is very fast and easy to use.
#26
Can anyone suggest any decent none data zapping USA maps for the Iphone?
#27
Don't bother with the 59p if you only want to try it out - there is a free version without speed camera alerts, just search for skobbler on the app store.

Personally I'd recommend Navfree which is also based upon openstreetmap data. I've tried both and Navfree is vastly superior, plus it has the maps downloaded to your iPhone instead of having to download them for each journey.

Copilot USA is only £2.99. Got all the maps with it, so no data downloads. Haven't tried it yet, but use the UK version and that's great.

GPS is CRAP on iphones! will not use even if its free!

Thanks for this - got to be worth a shot for that price.

Thanks niceguyrichy!

We've shared this over on HotUKDeals' new sister site, Mobot.net.

This application is an utter waste of time, well on the Vodafone network anyway.
Pay for Co-Pilot its worth the £19.50 more!
#33
What about ForeverMap for the same price by Skobbler? Haven't tried it but it sounds good for the data conscious.
#34
Don't know about vodafone, but it works just fine and dandy on 3
And I think some of the people who mentioned the data usage are trolling without properly trying the app
I've been using it for a good while now, and the data usage has never been an issue.
And it finds it's way around rural Aberdeenshire without issue, which is impressive enough in itself :)
