iPhone GPS apps

iphone-gps-app
It’s only been a few weeks since the new iPhone 3.0 operating system has been released and we already have a handful of GPS navigation system applications available/ or soon to be released. Let’s recap what we have so far:

TeleNav
Also known as AT&T Navigator this app is developed by TeleNav. Free to install, $10/month. More… (iTunes)

Navigon
All versions of Navigon are out. Works with no internet connection (maps are local). Recent update includes traffic for USA and Canada. It supports landscape mode. No monthly fee. U.S. version sells for $90. Other versions include Brazil, Turkey, Europe, Russia, Australia, and South Africa. Maybe a car kit from is expected. (iTunes)

TomTom
TomTom is the biggest name in Europe when it comes to sat nav. They demoed their app with the release of iPhone 3GS but still no news from them.

UPDATE: It is up. Here are some reviews for it.

UPDATE: It is out. U.S. and Canada is $100. Other versions are for NZ, Nordic, West Europe, East Europe, Australia, Italy, UK and Ireland, Iberia, France, Turkey, Hong Kong, Brazil, Germany-Austria-Switzerland, Southern Africa, Greece, Malaysia and Singapore, Benelux, and Mexico. (iTunes)

Gokivo
Gokivo is from Networks In Motion. They have a lot of experience in this just like the rest of the names up here. $1 to install, $10/month for subscription. Here’s a review that says it doesn’t work so well.
UPDATE: Number have changed a bit. Your first month is just $5. After that it is $40/year and $15 extra for traffic service. (iTunes)

Sygic
Sygic is currently available for South East Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand) for $80 and Australia + New Zealand for $65. No monthly fee.

UPDATE: Now out for more place. US version is $40. Other regions include Colombia, Brazil, Gulf, Russia, Europe, UK & Ireland, and America which includes US, Canada, and Mexico. (iTunes)

Navmii
Navmii says their GPS navigation software will be coming to the App Store soon.

UPDATE: Out for UK. Costs $50. (iTunes)

iGO My Way
iGO My Way just released their navigation app too. $80 in the U.S., 90 € for whole Europe, and 70 € for only Western Europe. How is it different from the rest? Because it does 3D terrain maps. (iTunes)

CoPilot Live
This one is from ALK Technologies. Does landscape mode as well as portrait. Includes realistic intersection view and lane assistance. UK version is £ 26, and whole Europe is £ 60. U.S. version is not out just yet.

UPDATE: North American version is out and costs $35. (iTunes)

XRoad
Xroad also have a new version of their GPS navigation app for iPhone. It is called G-Map and costs $35. Funny thing with G-Map is that eastern and western U.S. is sold separately. So the whole U.S. of A. would be $70. Canada is cheap. Only $20.

UPDATE: They’ve divided the US into even smaller regions. You can just buy CA, or even TX. Other regions they support are Russia, France, Alps, UK-Ireland, Germany. (iTunes)

MotionX-GPS Drive
What’s so special about MotionX-GPS Drive from Fullpower? How about the price? It is only $3. If you’ve used this let us know how it was. We’re curious. (iTunes)

NDrive
NDrive is kind of new. Available in 32 languages/versions. Starts at $38.

UPDATE: USA version is on sale for $30 right now. (iTunes)

Mapquest
Mapquest has an iPhone app they’re trying to get out there. It costs $4/month, $10/quarter, $30/year. (iTunes)

Magellan
Magellan RoadMate App for iPhone just came out and costs $80 for US and Canada. Maps are stored on your phone, does landscape mode, and text-to-speech (iTunes). Other versions soon to come will be Eastern and Western US, and then Europe.

Kapten
Kapten for iPhone just came out beginning of 2010. They go monthly and ask for $8/month. What’s cool is that it is multi-transport so it can ask you to park your car at some point and hop on to the bus and have you walk somewhere. (iTunes).

Destinator
Offered by Intrinsyc Destinator 9 is a GPS navigation app that has a 30 day free trial going on right now. Some features include live weather and traffic, a new routing engine, 3D junction views, ability to create your own POIs, and more. (iTunes).

  61. GPS running watch Says:

    As more smart phones comes onto the market and became the standard I think these GPS software apps will become the norm and stand alone GPS units will become obsolete. The only exception to this is GPS watches which should remain in demand as it is not practical to run with a phone in your hand or in your pocket.


  62. Tara Says:

    I havent found a way to make this work on my phone yet!


  63. Michael Says:

    I downloaded and used Motion-X GPS today for my iPad. Ran it next to my Magellan for a 110 mile r/t into New Orleans. Worked as good as the Magellan. Best part is the screen being bigger makes it a whole lot easier to read with a quick glance. The Magellan is history.
