Princeton, NJ – Soccer fans heading to South Africa this summer will be able to find their way around easily, thanks to the newly available CoPilot Live South Africa full-featured GPS navigation app. Available for iPhones, Android smartphones or Windows Mobile Phones, CoPilot Live provides full turn-by-turn voice-guided navigation in-car or on foot. The app stores detailed street maps of South Africa on the phone, so there’s no need to rely on the mobile network for navigation and no risk of incurring huge roaming charges for downloading maps.
As a keen walker and camper, I was excited when I spotted OutDoors – GB National Parks OS Maps in the App Store. Although at first glance you may think it’s quite expensive ($24.99 US), when you add together how much it would have cost to buy the physical versions of all the maps included, it’s actually a bargain. Plus you can never blame poor map reading again as with GPS, you’ve got no excuse for not knowing where you are!

If you’ve read my reviews in the past, you’ll notice that I’ve made no effort to hide my love for “pick up and play” type games. Having to work all day and then worry about my home/husband-ly duties at home, I don’t always have a whole bunch of time to devote to a game. Instead I prefer and enjoy titles that I can pick up and put down whenever I want without feeling like I am missing something. It’s been a while but thanks to the good folks at Glu Games and their new and addicting title 1000: Find ‘Em All! I’ve filled that want and then some.
Ever since I read Treasure Island, my mind has been full of dreams of finding buried treasures and going on pirate adventures. Well, that was when I was but a wee little lad – since then I’ve cleared my head of such nonsense, but still, the idea of how great it would be to go on a real treasure hunt haunts me. And then I heard of Geocaching…
Ever get that feeling that despite your excellent (or perhaps because of your terrible) map-reading skills, you’re lost? You read the map, you check your GPS, but you still want a second opinion? Maybe you live for exploring, and want to record your outings and mark the places you’ve been to. Trail Behind’s new iPhone app, Gaia GPS, might be just what you’re looking for.
In the last couple of weeks, I have been bothered by no fewer than 14 people at my bike clubs who are looking for a good GPS for their bicycle. While a dedicated GPS unit might be okay, my eyes have been peeled for a way to safely use the iPhone as a GPS. Dahon, it seems, are a few steps ahead of me. Firstly, the iPhone’s excellent screen should make a great navigation device for bicycles, but as many of us roadies know, it gets wet out there. Fortunately, Dahon have kept the elements in mind when designing their products.
Navigon, a well-known navigation company from Hamburg have augmented North American iPods with the App Store’s first professional GPS system. The app promises to turn your iPhone into a ‘first-rate navigation system’ – a promise that we have heard before. This time however, Navigon’s professional experience and overall polish are swaying the majority of App Store users. There are a few problems, but as a first release on this side of the Atlantic, a little culture shock is to be expected. MobileNavigator is a whopping 1,29 GB, so it may be time to pair down your music library, saying adieu to Michael Jackson once and for all.
Navigon AG, MobileNavigator North America, 69.99$, 1,29 GB – North American version
Navigon AG, MobileNavigator Europe, 139.99$, 1,65 GB – European Version
There are a couple of good videos showing MobileNavigator in action – check them out after the jump.
