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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
