    Not only is it new to iOS but it's superior to the Android version.

    I really wouldn't go that far.

    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.

    I used to use Navigon (by Garmin) but lately I've just been using Google. All I have to say is GPS xxx xxx xxx or give me directions to 5 guys and it will automatically give me gps and I get real time traffic check and all that jazz, pretty accurate I must say.

    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.

    But £50 is a bump considering I only want UK maps, why can't they offer a UK version? Scrongle heads.

    this is 1000 better than apple's maps
