SawyerLatteSawyerLatte

Spotted in Sainsburys Northampton, seems very cheap.

Probably store specific but didn't appear to be a clearance deal.

    Navfree always works for me on iPhone and it's free, I have a parot so the speaker cuts Ito my car speakers too
    So it's all I need

    Has anyone used sygic on android? had the trial version a while back all good except could not get full postcode search to work.


    Yes I bought it as the maps get free updates all the time and it works great for me as I go to Bulgaria a lot and find it has better coverage than most of the maps.

    Which will NOT install onto any of my devices as "I'm in the UK"

    Ive been uaing sygic on android and its pretty decent. Nice that it doesnt rely on 3g like google maps can. Has a cool animation at junctions for lane choice coming off motorways. My partner tried it round Hemel hempstead doing home care to random places and it did take her cross country a few times when on a map there were nicer routes. Ive found Garmin in my car does that a lot but never had a Tomtom make such odd decisions.

    Tomtom on iPhone is absolutely crap, I ended up going in circles using it. Co-pilot probably isn't much better, since they both work over 3g.


    You must be a bit confused here as they don't, both use the the internal GPS and not 3G - a data connection is only required for web related searches etc, such as navigating to a Facebook event for example and is not used for navigation. Tomtom on the iphone is superb, as someone else said it easily outperforms my dedicated Tomtom unit as it's faster to calculate, recalulate etc, . As I always have my phone with me I've hardly used the actual TomTom for months now - it's one less thing to remember to bring and carry with you when you leave the car. I've got a bluetooth car stereo and there's no issues with taking or making calls whilst Tomtom is running and music playing etc. In terms of actual routing it's identical to our Live 1000 (tested by having both on whilst I first got it on the iphone) which cost over £200.

    I also love CoPilot Live on iPhone. Didn't pay a penny for it though ;)

    I would love to get TomTom for iPhone and be done with it, but I just dont trust it, reading the reviews on the App store it looks like an app to avoid!

    If you have an android why bother with co-pilot of navfree? I have a TomTom which is getting a bit old, and was thinking that when it does finally die, I'll just use my phone. Didn't think I'd hate to get another app as google maps is already installed, including the navigation. Is it rubbish?

    I've got one, they're OK - they don't set the world on fire BUT THEY ARE ONLY £35

    Definitely not from my experience as I've been using it 18 months pretty much daily without any issues at all (or at least no iphone specific problems - you do get the odd dodgy postcode, missing new road etc but that's down to the maps and the same on a dedicated Tomtom unit). I'm not sure what specific reviews you are looking at but the current version is rated 4/5 on the appstore and all versions 3.5/5 which is a decent score - however I'd be inclined to check out some of the other reviews about if you aren't sure. My only reservation is the high price - in fact we recently put Copilot on my wife's phone as it was only £20 including 12 months Active Traffic which is obviously a lot cheaper and certainly worth thinking about too.

    If you have a half decent android phone - you must try NAVFREE from the app store. Completely free, you can download each country onto the SD card, I used it to get to the South of France and back, and it was superb, all the toll booths and new roads were on there,. I was running alongside a Tomtom, and at some points on the Tomtom it was just floating in mid air!!! Try it, you have nothing to lose.

    Tried to buy one in my local Sainsburys but was told it must have been priced up wrong!

    Well Google Maps requires a data connection/a fair amount of data usage. A 'proper' smartphone SatNav app. uses map data stored on your internal memory or memory card and therefore does not require a data connection to download this. Good for those of us with no or limited data usage included in our contract.

    To be fair you do have something (a lot?) to lose - getting lost. But I agree that in theory a free app. should work well enough, if not exactly as well as or better than a commercial one.

    None in sainsburys at the galleries washington, definitely a store specific job this. I did get the final destination trilogy boxset for 3 quid mind.
