Sygic's Mobile Maps 2009 app is the first offering full turn-by-turn navigation in Australia

The first full turn-by-turn navigation app for the iPhone has been launched — and it isn't from TomTom.

Sygic Mobile Maps 2009 Australia is available now from the Apple App Store, with a price tag of $79.99. The Sygic app includes Australian and New Zealand maps from Australian mapping provider Whereis.

Sygic claims the Mobile Maps 2009 app includes more than 600,000 points of interest, including content from Yellow Pages and UBD, as well as speed and red light alerts. It also offers instant rerouting, lane assistance, speed restrictions and a number of other safety alerts.

"We are excited to launch our new navigation product to the Australian market and very pleased to partner with Australia’s leading mapping provider, Whereis," said Anna Hurbanic, Sygic's PR manager.

Sygic Mobile Maps 2009 Australia is available now from the iTunes App Store. It can be found under the "navigation" category or by simply searching for “Sygic”.

GPS manufacturer TomTom has announced the impending release of a dedicated app and car kit for the iPhone. Navigon has also announced an iPhone app, called MobileNavigator, though no release date has been set.

Sorry. With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.
I am from Kyrgyzstan and also am speaking English, give true I wrote the following sentence: "Choosing a free online dating service means that you can set up a profile without incurring any costs and so can the plethora of scammers and spammers.The website will provide a dating service with male seeking a male; or female seeking a female; options, the attorney general; office said in a statement."

Thank you so much for your future answers :). Lotta.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
