Driving Sat Nav - Recomendation

Found 10th Nov 2016
Hello I wanted to ask

Could you recommend a driving sat navigation app which tells you and gives more details compared to Google Maps

E.g when going to round abouts it should speak out which lane to go in. Etc

I feel that Google Maps lacks this

Copilot ;-)

I've been using Copilot for the last 4 years and would be lost without it.

Does Waze say which lane to move to??

Waze is free, it's owned by Google but I think much better !

Apple maps is great now. It always up to offers an alternative route when there is a crash or traffic jam and most useful as I am a delivery driver is also sends the direction to the Apple Watch and it taps you on the wrist when the next direction is coming up. So useful to have it on your wrist.

HERE MAPS is good and Free, and you can download the Map Data for Off Line use.

I liked Waze, but found the volume too low, even when on maximum.

Free: Waze

Chargeable : another +1 for Co-Pilot

googl maps tells just what exit and left at the fort etc dont know what ya chating

Osmand apparently has Lane guidance (option located under "alerts"), not sure how good it is.
As I understand it, the free version is 100% functional, the paid more of a donation (though I got the paid version as a 10p special ... not much of a donation there!!!

​This is the problem with a lot of drivers these days. They rely on the sat nav to do the driving for them.

​Can see that you are not driving much, are you? Most of road markings are so faded out that it's impossible to read them and often they will contradict signs.

Cant beat google maps it adjusts the route to find the quickest depending on congestion ( as long as you have traffic turned on ) and it shows a little picture of what lane you need to be in or a picture of the exit on the roundabout so you can use what you was taught by your instructor

I drive all day, everyday and I have no need for a sat nav voice telling me what lane to take on a roundabout ​

Let's just hope that the op won't end up driving down the cliff because you was to stupid and ignorant to read road signs

If you need to be told which lane to take at a roundabout? maybe you shouldnt be on the road?

Tried them all. Nothing is a good as Google maps. Here maps. Copilot. Waze ect. They are all ok and have good features but Google maps never seems to ask you to leave road only to get back on or force you to turn around when there is no need.

Tried Google and Waze. Prefer Google overall. However Google has failed on me when avoiding congestion. I have found sometime the red does not always represent traffic and other times it has landed me in traffic after suggesting a quicker route.
I would stick to Google as 8/10 it does the job.
