It's different than the Android version, arguably more adapted to the iOS demographic, but personally I prefer how the Android version exposes more options and parameters by default.

Which is really why I use Android in the first place I guess.

While Google does have good maps and a a pretty decent navigation system, I still prefer the TomTom app hands down.

Navigon Europe has gone down £20 on the Windows Marketplace to £50. And for the latest update there is nothing but praise over what a fine app it is.
