How to: navigate with an iphone 5
APPLE chief executive Tim Cook recently apologised for the company’s incomplete new Maps app, saying it had fallen ‘‘short’’ of Apple’s goals and ‘‘we are doing everything we can to make Maps better’’. In the meantime, iPhone users who don’t want to experiment with the app have plenty of choices in the App Store.
Like its users, the Navigon app has come a long way since its initial launch. The $59.99 app uses Navteq maps to deliver turn-byturn guidance to drivers, with options for avoiding tolls, fixed speed camera alerts and even Google destination searches. Navigon also offers options, such as live traffic alerts, as extras to purchase and recently added a pack called Urban Guidance that offers Australian public transport directions. The $2.99 add-on features train, tram, ferry and bus details.
