Today most mobile phones, certainly high-end models are coming with GPS navigation built-in them
allowing you to pin-point the position with great accuracy. Complementing this, many software
applications have arrived that give you detailed mapping services on your phones and calculate the route
helping you to get from one place to another.
Many familiar names around are offering satellite navigation on mobile phones, if it does not come as
installed. If you don’t have a free GPS app installed by default, then you can download it easily. Nokia has come with their mapping solution that is GPS-
enabled Nokia smartphones but in a basic package it doesn’t have voice navigation solution included that is
safe while driving. The situation has changed now, and many latest Nokia, or any other
smartphones are eligible for downloading latest maps and have the advantage of voice navigation for
free. Once you download the map applications, there is an option for male or female voice available in
numerous languages so download as you wish. The maps are there to download foir over 70
countries for free.
Google is also offering free mapping service on many of the popular branded phones, and it allows
finding navigation routes needed for you, but without the option of voice navigation. There is voice
navigation option in some phones that run Android OS from Google. The difference with thr Google
application is other manufacturers offer free map updates which can be downloaded whenever needed rather
than running in phone memory.
The solution you choose depends on the phone you are using. If you were using a Nokia phone, then try the Map navigation app but you can also try Google map if you are not interested in turn by turn navigation. In other smartphones, Google maps are provided free and it’s a good application that helps you find any place you want and take you where you need.
Nowadays, most smartphones are coming with free navigation apps. That means no need to pay the monthly fee or a download price and no updating cost required. The freest app running is Google Maps Navigation 6.7.0.
