The magazine “Test” of the German body for testing goods and products reported that it is possible to rely on free navigation applications to reach destinations quickly and reliably; The German authority tested 17 navigation apps, 15 of which are free, and got a “good” rating, while the two paid apps received a “fair” rating.
The German magazine added that it had tested 13 navigation applications in addition to two traditional navigation devices, which are “Tomtom Go Discover 7” and “Garmin DriveSmart 65 & Digital Traffic”. Demand for these devices has declined “severely” due to dependence on navigation applications on smartphones and tablets.
TomTom has launched many applications for mobile devices, such as the paid application “Tom Tom Go Navigation”, which surpassed all applications dedicated to Android devices, and in the next place came the free application Google Maps, then the paid application ” Sigk GPS Navigation “. ”(Sygic GPS Navigation).
In terms of applications for Apple devices, “iOS”, the Google Maps application ranked first, followed by the free Apple Maps application and the paid application “Sigk GPS Navigation”.
There are some applications, such as Tom Tom Go Navigation, that store maps in the mobile device memory and although this method occupies the memory space, it prevents the user from consuming the internet package on the smartphone, which can sometimes be expensive.
