GPS ON TurnByTurn Navigation for Windows Phone

Article by: Darren Griffin
Date: 11 Sep 2012

A new player in the Windows Phone marketplace, GPS On is a voice guided, turn-by-turn navigation app that uses on-board mapping and has all the basic features you'd expect.

GPS On uses Navteq mapping data with full address and POI search, pedestrian mode, portrait and lansdcape viewing options and a smart routing engine.

Available in the Windows Marketplace, the app can be tested free of charge for 24hrs and the UK/Ireland version costs 30.99 to purchase. The authors, GPS Tuner also have an off-board version where map data is loaded per journey as required for 3.99 as well as on-board versions covering other territories.

One of the things I found interesting was

- Improved route calculation for long trips
- Smart routing (tries to avoid unpaved roads)
Did it fail to do this before? Rolling Eyes

Hardly a new player?

It's been around since late 2011 and the current version seems to add little to the original program.

As far as I can see it is still 2D only and also still lacks postcode address entry.

Still, as it's half the price of Navigon, it is fair value for money.

Hmm, Navteq mapping data - just the same as used in my Nissan Connect, which isn't exactly up to date.
