Smartphone GPS app reviews

We test 19 smartphone navigation apps available for Apple iPhone, Android and Windows phones.

Last updated: 19th June 2014

Most smartphone owners know about Google Maps, which provides basic information on where you are and how to get from point A to B. But you can get an app on your phone that will work just like a car navigation device, with safety camera warning, trip planning and advanced lane guidance.

We test 19 smartphone GPS apps available for the Apple iPhone, Android and Windows phones priced from $0 to $70.

We've assessed each app for:

  • ease of use
  • performance in city areas
  • performance in regional and rural areas, and
  • purchase, set-up and installation experience.
