iGo My Way 2009
iPhone GPS apps keep getting better and better. iGo My Way 2009 is an innovative GPS application for iPhone that provides you with the directions you need to get to your destination without having to rely on a standalone GPS unit. Similar to other top GPS apps for iPhone, iGo provides you with beautiful 3D maps to help you find your way around more easily. So whether you are in Canada or the U.S., you can always rely on these 3D maps to get yourself out of tricky situations.
Unlike a few other top GPS applications, you won’t have to worry about map updates until the end of 2010. So that should give you plenty of time to enjoy your app without paying for updates. I found the app to be very easy to work with. Entering an address and following directions on the map is very easy. The voice commands were very clear, and the lane assistance feature was a plus. What I like about this app is that you are not reliant on your network connection for directions. Essentially, you still get directions even if you are in a dead zone. The automatic re-route feature works like a charm as well.
I was very impressed with the apps ability to get a satellite lock as quickly as possible. So unlike some other apps on iPhone, you won’t have to wait minutes to get started. I did have a few issues trying to implement multi-routing with this app. The routing capabilities need some work, but overall iGo My Way is a solid choice for anyone looking to dump their old GPS and use their iPhone as their main navigation device. There is a lot to be excited about with the future releases as well. Soon, you will be able to navigate your way to your contacts’ location and stopover support is in the works as well.
iGo My Way is not cheap by any means, but it does turn your iPhone into a super GPS. If you have been thinking about purchasing a GPS recently and don’t want to spend $400 on a new gadget, iGo My Way for iPhone is a sound investment.
