Was watching that Gadget Geeks show recently, and they were testing various sat-navs, from an expensive Tom Tom (£400) to a cheaper Garmin one, and the I-Phone free sat-nav App.
The I-Phone won! Due to the fact that it gets updated all the time, by users in real time. It could even sense if you were going too slow, as it pings all available towers and sends back information to your phone. Then, when it realizes your going too slow, due to traffic problems, it finds you a quicker route!
It won every stage of the tests given out to three different teams, so I got my phone out down loaded, and installed the NavFree App, cant wait to try it out now
Talking about satnavs - Have "inherited" a RAC1000 satnav from brother in law (deceased). How do I go on internet to update this unit ?? Apparently was only purchased last year and was hardly ever used due to illness. Any web sites would be appreciated. Cheers. Montyatbarclay
Welcome to the site MB, if you mean new road updates, they have to be bought, and are only available every few years, as it takes that long to make them. If you mean new "Safety Camera" updates, they are free and can be D/Loaded for her
Hope that helps
Smudger, thanks for the assist buddy, worked a treat, shouldn't get lost now ! ! ! ! Cheers. Montyatbarclay
