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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
