Best iPhone navigation apps

We review and rate the best iPhone GPS navigation apps in the App Store

The dominance of Apple's iPhone is largely thanks to its App Store, and some of the most useful third-party applications are fully fledged navigation apps that take advantage of the phone's GPS capabilities.

There is no shortage of GPS-based apps available for the iPhone, including from big brands like TomTom, Navigon and CoPilot Live, as well as lesser known players like Sygic and NDrive.

If you're after a navigation solution for your iPhone either for in the car or for when you're on foot, check out our guide to the best iPhone navigation apps.

TomTom Australia

TomTom's iPhone app offers an extremely user-friendly navigation experience with support for the company's proprietary IQ Routes technology. However, it lacks the features that would make it a sufficient replacement for mid-range and even some budget standalone GPS units.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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.
