Smartphone GPS app reviews

We test 13 smartphone navigation apps available for Apple iPhone, Android and Windows phones.

Last updated: 20th March 2015

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 13 smartphone GPS apps available for the Apple iPhone, Android and Windows phones, including free apps, and paid ones priced up to $90.

We've assessed each app for:

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