Okay, one iPhone GPS app reviewed and another one coming up. I think I’ve gotten a little obsessed with GPS apps for the iPhone, but I feel like I’ve just been waiting for so long for them. I’ve just hated digging out my TomTom GPS unit, doing my damndest to install the suction-cup mount so it will stay put (which it never does), and watch it get confused more often than not while my perfectly capable iPhone stared at me woefully, muttering lame excuses about how no official GPS apps were available for it yet. No more, finally!
However, although it uses the same map data source as Sygic’s app, TeleAtlas, my street isn’t on its map and it takes longer to acquire a GPS location after start-up. Street names are also hard to read with the daytime color scheme, which cannot be changed. Also, there are no language or voice customization options, nor much in the way of navigation preferences and settings. I’ll start using it to get me around the city this weekend to see how it does performing its main function.
