We rank the GPS navigation apps available for the iPhone from best to worst.
Because of the iPhone's excessive glare during the day and less than stellar GPS performance, we're still not won over by the iPhone navigation experience. However, if you're dead keen on using your favourite phone to guide you around town or across Australia, which is the best?
In first place is the first nav app made available on the iPhone: Sygic's Mobile Maps. At AU$80, it offers text-to-speech and lane guidance, and is the only app here that comes with both Australian and New Zealand maps.
Sitting in second spot is Navigon's MobileNavigator. Retailing also for AU$80, it comes with text-to-speech, in-app iPod control, and lane guidance with junction view that's limited to motorways.
Bringing up the rear is the much anticipated TomTom iPhone app. At AU$100, it's the most expensive app here, yet somehow misses out on lane guidance and text-to-speech. It does come with audio warnings for speed and red light cameras, though.
