How to: nav­i­gate with an iphone 5

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Gadgets -

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.

Navigon

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.
