It is always hard to choose one solution, especially when they look similer. We see many questions like: "What is the best navigaton app for iPhone, Navigon and Sygic?". Today Macity released a comparison video:
Navigon looks much simpler, it doesn't have some features and beautiful graphics of Sygic. By the way, do not forget, that apps from TomTom and iGO might apper quite soon in AppStore.
Sygic is an offline navigator for iPhone and should be approved soon in the AppStore. The maps are from TeleAtlas, the navigator provides voice guide, search for POI etc. This is the first video of Sygic Mobile 2009. The application is presented at CeBIT. Rumors say it will cost around $100...
One of the most elusive and desired apps for iPhone is turn-by-turn GPS navigation. We heard that TomTom was developing a GPS navigator. To date, it hasn't shipped. Recently, the focus has been on xGPS, an app that requires a jailbroken iPhone to work.
At Mobile World Congress 2009 (MWC09) in Barcelona, Spain, Sygic is demoing a version of their namesake GPS navigation software running on an iPhone 3G. The Sygic software uses maps from TeleAtlas, the same company that supplies map data for Google Maps. Sygic produces similar software for Windows Mobile and Symbian devices.
Applicatin has turn-by-turn GPS directions with voice prompts, points of interest, support for multiple countries, and locally-stored maps.
