||Standard GPS functionality in iPhone 5. Pretty good update rate for beeing a standard chip in a smart phone. The built-inGoogle maps app works pretty good with both street view, sattelite map and hybrid map showing satellite with road overlay.
||The GPS is kind of slow some time on startup, sometimes show a position way off the real position such as wrong country. Sometimes it will show a still position while I am moving.
||Tom Tom XXL IQ & iphone 6
||Tom Tom - has been good on the whole
||Some aspects on screen could be improved. E.g. If you do a particular route, TT should learn this.
Attachment to car window is not great.
||Phone is obviously convenient to use as it is more than must a Satnav. Updates are easy to put on to phone. Can be used for a wide variety of things, even phonecalls!
||Not having a separate gps receiver means that sat nav reception is sometimes very poor. Especially in built up areas or in tunnels. The screen is also a little bit small and not having a dedicated mount means it can be a pain.

||Few quirks but generally happy

||TomTom / iPhone 4S
||simply the best. never misses to get me to my destination.
||not much to configure for the geeks. just comes as is.
||Really like the turn by turn functionality. Intuitive to use.
||Small thing, but I don't like how easily the map rotates. I accidentally spin it often.
||You can have any kind of maps app you like. Google maps is available for it.
||The native maps app is not that great and it is the default for a lot of different apps.
||iphone with Sygic
||Perfect for me as a truckdriver. Never let me down.
||Maybe could do with Auto complete for searching
||Great functionality. Would not really consider any other smartphone.
||Battery life not the longest. Robustness (however easily solved with a case).
||good Apps for GPS usage are available including GPS Tracker and a lot of Navigation software.
GPS Averaging for optimizig Cache coordinates possible. And of course as smartphone a perfect combination of functionalities.
|the price was relativ high for a GPS but as smartphone in the end ok.

||Battery drains fast when location services are in use.
||TomTom XXL + iPad with 3 gps apps
||TomTom maps are close to being up to date. Also like the PIOs availible
||Would like to install other programs in it, like Ozi Explorer with lake charts.
||Very flexible package now with lots of apps taking advantage. Turn-by-turn is good.
||Topographical mapping is not so good. Short battery life. Small screen.
||Great device for all purposes. Navigation software is as easy to read and use as any other.
||Updates can be a bit tricky. CoPilot does not make it easy to download.
||Fairly accurate; refresh rate pretty good
||Takes a while to load map initially
||Nice to have an integrated device - don't have to carry around another piece of electronics
||Battery drains quickly using satnav apps
