For those of use lucky few with an iPhone you may be interested in this app...
NAVIGON AG - Products - Navigation Systems
A full UK turn by turn GPS solution! You'll need to upgrade to OS 3.0 to use I think. Bought it last night and used it to travel to work this morning. It did a very good job. Clear instructions in plenty of time. Very good location lock. Clear display. Clear voice instructions. What more can you ask for?
Oh, and it's £38 till the end of today then the price goes up, so if you haven't already you may want to upgrade to OS 3.0 and buy this app.

or you could just use a normal satnav, and save yourself the hassel of having to use an iphone
Hey, it was no hassle at all. In fact I think it's a neater solution. I have the phone wired into the stereo any way. On device on the windscreen not two. At £38 it about 1/3 of the price of buying a dedicated sat nav and the screen/instructions was as good as any sat nav I've used in the past.
Overall I'm very happy with the purchase and thought other iPhone owners here might be interested as the offer ends today!
how much will it be going up by ? 45 or 50 ?
I think it will be about £55 - still not bad compared to a new sat nav if you already own the phone!
Very good bit of software by the looks of it, I to this day use my iPhone as Satnav, using google maps, not as accurate as it needs to be, but gives me an overall idea of where to go, what more does one need?
Oo this sounds interesting I am forever borrowing satnavs of people.
You'd really want an iphone charger for your car tho, unless you enjoy running out of battery before you get to work :P
I use a Belkin adapter. Plugs into cigarette lighter socket and includes a 3.5mm audio jack for my stereo. Fantastic for my iTunes library on the move. I now also have a sexy voice to keep me company (in stereo) when I get lost
I bought a cig charger for my iphone but lo and behold it does not work as it turns out it does not do the full usb handshake
I do like the Navigon software, but at the moment I'm waiting on the TomTom software + mount to be released. The tomtom mount looks like one of the best iPhone car mounts around
Whats wrong with a good old fashioned map?!
Can you use the iPod function at the same time, so have the sat nav interface running, but play songs in the background?
TomTom are bringing their one out soon too, not sure how much but probably not as cheap as this one.
I did do a quick app search for TomTom before I purchased this. I do like the TomTom software. But when I saw the price, and the fact it was a limited offer, I just had to buy it.
Certainly not unhappy with my late night purchase. does all I need a sat nav to do.
I think this is one of the interesting selling featues of the new Palm Pre - it does multitask.
The iPhone 3GS might be a different kettle of fish.
