anyone no if its worth getting ndrive satnav?

If it's silver back it's definitely a 2G and therefore doesn't have GPS.

Ndrive, or any other satnav app would be useless.

You purchased an iphone without querying what generation it was?

I think you are mixing up 1st Generation, 2nd Generation and the 2g,3g,3gs models.

The 2g is the "1st Generation" iphone. The 3g is the 2nd generation iphone etc.

I can confirm that if it has a silver back it is a 1st Gen or 2g iphone which will not have GPS.

said it was 2nd but someone at work said they had the very 1st gen but said it had shiny back.

Any doubts about model types when it comes to Apple products and which gen something is - I always go to...
support.apple.com/specs

In there, stick in your serial number of your iphone and it will tell you the full tech specs. Your serial number can be found on the phone under Settings>General>About... then scroll down to Serial number.

Just don't lose it in a bar.
Also iphone have poor battery when using internet/ gps.

Shiney back could be construed two ways!

The 1st gen iphone (the one you have) has a silver back with black bit at the bottom.
2nd gen (3g) iPhone has a all plastic shiny back
