There's been an update, at least to the free UK and ROI edition of Navmii, so that real time routing round traffic jams is now offered for free. This caused me to uninstall Here an… Read more

Oh, and it's easy to set Google Maps announcements to alerts only.

Odd, on my iPhone 5s Google Maps is less laggy - shows upcoming turn-offs more accurately - than Navmii. Whenever I switch to Navmi I always miss a turn-off before getting used to the way it shows the nearest junctions as seemingly 50m away when you are nearly on top of it.

looking into this further and compareing side by side my tomtom, it looks lik enavmii is crowd-sourcing data ASWELL as inrix data so it seems to pick up a few more jams.

Google maps has never run well on any mobile ive owned, by the time it tells me to take exit ive taken one it suggested, then reroutes because it meant the one after but hadnt updated the gui. Plus, it talks too much.
Waze and google both thought a road was closed, yet TomTom knew it was still open.

Since my Tomtom traffic sub expired I've happily used Google maps with downloaded map sections for my commute as the traffic updating seems excellent. You can almost 'see' if there's a traffic queue round the next bend. For long journeys I use Navmii with it's inbuilt England map.

Is traffic still offered by INRIX - is INRIX better than it used to be? Copilot moved to HERE data i know but their routing algorithm is terrible.

I have paid up TOMTOM (those downloading for 'free' here are actually pirating)

When TomTom runs out i want to use something free if possible, Waze is a no go as traffic incidents dont clear quick enough and no offline.

Currently Navmii and Magic Earth (route 66) is looking an alternative but traffic is where it's at - I cant find a source as to who provied the traffic?

Seeing the post for copilot I thought I would give a reminder for Navmii. You can pay for maps if you want ad free, but if you don't mind occasional ads it is free. This app does n… Read more

I normally uses Sygic, but have used Here several times recently, and it does seem to be a solid product, especially for the price.

Works very well. Have used it in many countries - Spain, Morocco, Italy, India, Portugal, Turkey without any problems.

Gollywood

I recommend HERE




I'd second that.

Great, it seems that each american state is a separate download. I know that in Europe you do not get cross border routes unless you use the paid version. I don't know how the us version works, but, you can always change maps as you cross state borders.
Have a good trip.
PS. Don't forget to download all relevant maps before you go!

I've always used this app but recently found 'm8' and it's so much better



Angel I downloaded m8 to give it a trial and as I am in Spain it downloaded in Spanish, I don't know why because my play store is logged into my Google account which is google .co.uk and all my other downloads use English version apps. i.e. my navfree loaded in English.
I could not find any where to change it to English, I assume yours is in English, do you know how to change the language. Any help would be appreciated from anybody. Not sure why this one app. should be different than others?

OK so the car had no issues but isn't it dangerous to travel blind and how do you look at the car?

Google maps is no good if you have to make diversions etc. unless you have data.
The best free I have found and I have tried plenty is Navigator Free which is regularly updated so has streets my other 2 paid for satnavs do not find e.g. I needed to go to a calle in Javea Spain not on I-Go or Media Nav but navigator found it no problems and updates are free also.
I also find a usefull extra is an Anker portable battery charger for when I need to use it on walk abouts, if you are going for one of these get it off Amazon as that is the cheapest place to buy them by as much as £10 and more.
Also these navigation aids are only as good as the GPS in your phone, not all phone GPS are as fast as others.

Its free it works and by the way its free USA maps loaded heat added - works OK in UK expect same in USA

As NavFree and MapFactor use the same OSM maps can you configure them to use the same copy of the maps?

I`m back to using Navfree again now after a Kitkat update stopped Mapfactor working on my phone(HTC One Max)

i use the england version of nav free and find it brilliant.
i want sat nav in spain but i turn off roaming when abroad. will it still work on the move?

There's also a free version for UK and Ireland, based on OpenStreetMaps. I used an freee nav app called Skobbler recently, which also uses these maps. There were some minor errors but nothing significant.

£2.99 for iPhone SATNAV? Seriously? I was looking at TomTom for more than £50. I saw the Navmii UK app for £19.99 - any idea if there will be a UK version for £2.99?

Original Poster

yes £2.99 per country

it's better than Google because its like a car satnav so it has turn by turn navigation and you can find directions by entering a postcode etc. It's also a lot cheaper than Google because its on your device not your network.
