Navigation apps


Recommended Posts

Bought an Ultimate Addons handlebar phone mount yesterday from the Manchester bike show, tried it out for a quick ride yesterday and it works well. Now I’m looking for a recommendation of a good navigation app to use whilst riding and preferably one I can upload a route to before I go out so I don’t have to mess around with it whilst I’m out if this exists?

Sygic has downloadable maps so no data charges, The Tomtom App works well with downloaded maps and no data charges but you have to pay for the App I use it as a back up to my Tomtom 550.

I used it to get me around and back from Germany (with the downloaded maps) I think the UK is free. I had no problems at all with it. I have a dedicated Sat Nav now, but I still have it installed on my iPhone and use it occasionally. I think it’s one of the best for phones.

I use Google maps, it now includes speed cameras. Also I was looking at the route to Portsmouth yesterday and I think it downloaded all the data and instructions, it was 30 odd Mb anyway.

It's also very quick to find places, the Tom Tom is terrible for that :|

Don't phone apps use up your data ?

 

Yep but there are some very generous deals around at the moment . O2 do 25 Gig for £20 I think and I believe Tesco do 50 Gig for £30 .

Thanks guys I’ll have to check them all out, data isn’t an issue I’ve got a company phone with unlimited everything just want to be able to create a route easily and then go and follow it! Main problem is I tend to just go out and ride the same roads all the time so looking to spread my riding area.
