    Well because the built-in map does not do the exact same thing. The built in map is just that...a map. Sure it can do a route for you, but it is not close to a full Turn-by-turn navigation app.

    I must say, I do agree that $100 is too steep....however, I am also a die hard TomTom user for a long time. I will likely get it despite the cost. I have heard mixed reviews of the other Navi apps available....TomTom has always put out a quality product.

    This guy is going to make bank!!! if people actually buy this app........

    common really???....are apps that bad in demand...is this app like the RAREST of the RAREST or something?...common REALLY? $99 just for driving directions? are people that really lost out there on the road??? If im going to pay $99 for a app like that...it better teleport me from point A to point B.

    drop the price yo! even rich people would say that would be too high of a price for an app like that....n rich people dont even drive...they fly in their private jet or have someone drive them.

    Just a thought - buy a refurb unit:

    Newegg.com - Recertified: Tom Tom One 130 3.5"GPS Navigation with Spoken instruction

    Newegg.com - Recertified: TomTom XL330S 4.3" GPS Navigation with Text-to-Speech

    I just bought second one (with TTS) and it looks new and works great.

    How stupid!! The map app that comes with the iphone does the same thing for free. Who would spend a $100 just so their map app talks to them when it's time to turn? I could see $30-40 but $100 is crazy!

    This could be an ok deal IF they provide frequent updates to their maps FOR FREE. Map pack software costs about 60 bucks a year. If we can get updates more frequent than yearly, I can see this as a decent deal. Otherwise I will stick with my Garmin.

    No it doesn't do the same thing. If it DID, why would you justify even 30-40 bucks? This does vocal turn by turn, live 3D maps, among other things. When you are trying to get someplace and you are alone in your car it is MUCH safer and more convenient to have a voice telling you where to go and visuals on where to turn automatically rather than having to tab through google maps. Google maps is great, but it does not have the full features of a true turn by turn gps as this tomtom app does. The argument is like wondering why someone would pay for email/online storage when we can get the same things for free. Sometimes when all features are rolled into a simple convenient package it is worth the premium for people. I agree it is overpriced, but hvaving used iPhone's navigon and standalone GPS units I would have to say that they are MUCH more than the standard maps app that the iPhone has.

    Navigon did not work well for me in Puerto Rico this past week. It would give me an error connecting to the Satellite in places where XGPS and Maps was working fine. I was a bit disappointed and reverted to my regular Magellan GPS. Hopefully TomTom is better.

    Been reading the reviews. Apparently maps are outdated, as are the POI's. Also, no spoken-street names. Big letdown for me. I'll stick to Navigon and buy the TomTom car kit to enhance the antenna. The app is defintely overpriced.
