NAvigon is definitely the best on the market. I was really looking forward to iGo My Way but unfortunately they used AmiGo to develop from instead of the real iGo. Navigon is the only one I come across so far that actually keeps up with the current position. I can only assume the iPhone GPS causes the lag on the others but Navigon seems to work around it. There's a few bits of navigon I'd like them to fix, like some of the POIs and the route details but it's still my SatNav of choice.

I can tell u as a delivery driver in Harrisburg, PA that I have used both of these apps extensively to find out which suits me best. Tom Tom's accuracy is dead on for me, has all the correct street names, and is very easy to input your destination, and transmits through my radio via my FM modulator.......but it's ugly, and pauses my aol radio player, and sometimes doesn't unpause it. As far as Navigon goes, the lane assist is great, it has much more appealing look to it's map, it doesn't pause my player, just suppresses it's volume to speak it's directions, and it's input interface is great as well......but it's not as accurate for me as Tom Tom, and in the approx. 6-7 square miles my delivery area is, i've already found about 12 wrong street names (mostly mispelled) and it's not as accurate for me and it's one way street info sucks. Either way both are ideal navigation apps, and i would guess it's a lot to do with where their satellites are positioned as to which app will give the best accuracy given your location. The point is it all comes down to which suits u best depending on where u live, and until someone has people all over the world test all apps and take a survey on that, nobody can really determine which is the best. My mom uses co-pilot, and she likes it, but she's used to it from being a truck driver, as far as Sygic goes....it never loaded a map for me, never gave me a gps signal, and I used AT&T Navigator when I had my Curve, and it wasn't very accurate in my area either. I purchased both apps, Tom Tom for it's accuracy in my delivery area (basically local travel) and Navigon for my highway driving cause of the lane assist.

And sadly none (that I know of) have text to speech so the street onto which I must turn is not vocalized. Where are you Garmin?!

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

Telenav was tested twice on two different devices in this test.

after updating to 1.1 on navigon its better with controlling the music but they should really get the street names visible on the maps..still too difficult to see street names

^ I agree. Its really my only complaint about Navigon

SB - you've used everything, do you prefer Navigon to CoPilot? If so, why?

1. Lane Assist
2. Qwerty Keyboard
3. Allow copy and pasting of address (I copy and past all my appointments into Navigon)
4. Fix some of those bugs I told you about
5. I like how Navigon keeps the status bar visible
6. Text to Speech needs to be in the works also (Navigon will have it on the next release)
I like that you can read the street names in CoPilot so much better than in Navigon. The best view of street names is iGo. It creates a little bubble.

Thanks SB - will pass on.
