Although some of the better GPS apps for the iPhone can be quite pricey, they’re incredibly useful, and there’s a price range for everybody. I’ve listed some of the best GPS apps bellow and their price to help you decide which one to choose.
1. MotionX GPS Drive
This one makes the top of the list mostly because of its price. At just $0.99, it’s one of the more popular navigational apps for the iPhone. The maps are regularly updated, and multi-stop trip planning is supported. It’s not quite up to the standard as some of the others, but it certainly offers a lot for the price.
2. TomTom for iPhone
As you probably already know, TomTom have been the leading GPS providers for a number of years, and nothing has changed with their iPhone app, it’s top-notch! The frequency of the updates, accuracy, and speed camera detection are what set TomTom apart from the competition. There’s a couple of really cool features included, like the ability navigate to a Facebook place or event, and destination sharing. At $59.99 for the US & Canada version, it’s one of the most expensive GPS apps available.
Like TomTom, Garmin have been one of the leading SatNav providers for a number of years. Their app supports offline maps, voice commands, speed limit alerts, amongst a host of other features. It is priced at $49.99.
4. GPS by TeleNav
A subscription based service at $2.99 per month or $9.99 per year. Like the TomTom and Garmin apps, it packs a lot of features, like voice navigation, Facebook integration, auto rerouting, and support for voice commands. It’s a really good apps for the price, but the vehicle avatar takes up way too much space on the screen, otherwise it would have made the number 2 or 3 spot.
Considering it’s free, it would be a sin not to include it in the list. Obviously it isn’t as good as the paid alternatives, but it is completely free. The maps are quite good, the rerouting fast, and it’s easy to use.
