NDrive UK & Ireland for iPhone is today only £4.99 in the iTunes store.

No idea how long it will last at this price. It was still £9.99 yesterday when I bought the Western Europe version for £22.99.

Cheers,
Jon.

Thanks Jon - downloading now. The more I use Ndrive the more I like it.
Got Oz and Iberia while they were cheap, and Hong Kong when it was free!

This has been reduced by 66% and is now £14.99. Bit pee'd off as this cost me £54 a short while ago. I asked them for the difference but my email has been ignored! Wonder why?

Sorry, Paul, was in the title! Navigon Mobile Navigator and it is £17.99 not the £54 I paid for it. Plus the Traffic etc and it all added up. I bought Co-Pilot the other day and that is a good application. Only trouble the Traffic is the same price as the application which is a bit of a con.
Quite like the NDrive though and for under a fiver - bargain!!

I bought this for £4.99 ... a bargain price without doubt. However the real measure of this "bargain" is whether or not it works ...

My experience over a few days and several hundred miles is that it is rather hit and miss. When it works it is OK but that is only about 50% of the time ...

The problem seems to be the link between the the iphone GPS and the program; I know the GPS is working OK because the position shows up on google maps no problem, but it doesn't connect to N drive anything like as well.

Also the accuracy of position is something of a problem in N Drive, all too often showing an off road position. All in all there is no way this system could be relied upon. Have also tried CoPilot on an HTC HD2 that wasn't very good either, so it looks to me as though the only route (no pun intended!) to success is a standalone in car sat nav .... Since my TT720 went up in smoke it looks like I'll be back for another TT ...

I've been using it for a while now (paid £9.99 for UK &I) It's OK but the routing is a little weird. In towns it tries to do a shortest possible route - causing you to negotiate some odd streets at times Very Happy But it locks on pretty quickly and has a nice clean display. Shame it doesn't accept camera add ons.

It even handles incoming phone calls reasonably well - restarting the app after the call terminates.

At £4.99 it's a really good buy.

Anybody noticed that all the NDrive apps have disappeared from the app store? Is it just me?

Yes it has disappeared from the app store, i istalled the new 4. version and lost everything, pics vids e mails etc. When i spoke to apple support, held on 20 mins and then she cut me off, and no she never called me back. I tried using it about 3 times and 3 times i tried it didnt work, so no big loss if you only paid a few pounds for it, i bought it very early on and paid quite a bit............still got my tom tom back and fixed go 740 live, dont think the i phone is up to a sat nav device

you mean you updated your phone software to iOS4? if so then if you did a backup/sync before updating then once you update in itunes it should restore your backup? or at least give the option to set it up as your old phone? you can't blame ndrive for that...??!!!
