Android Sat Nav Applications
Founded in the USA in 2003, Android is a mobile phone operating system that was taken over by internet giant Google in 2005. Google’s online app store, Android Market, sells upwards of 250,000 Android apps, which are fuelling the company’s phenomenal success as it strives to become a brand leader.
Android sat nav apps are just some of the diverse applications and, competitively, Android sat nav apps are now offered free on Android smartphones in the UK. There are a range of Android sat nav apps, including the free Google Maps Navigation, but also many others that are worth paying for.
Highly rated Android sat nav apps include Co-Pilot Live, which ranks favourably with standalone GPS systems and even offers the facility to receive live traffic updates and petrol prices. With great usability, it comes highly recommended. Other Android sat nav apps worth exploring are AndNav2; TeleNav, for the occasional user, which works on a subscription basis; or the highly innovative BreadCrumbz, which even works within the confines of a building, allowing the user to plot every step.
Some smartphones even come with Android sat nav apps as their integral feature and USP, such as the nuvifone A50, produced by Garmin-Asus. Other sat nav apps include Sygic, which fully maps the UK and Ireland and provides real time updates of traffic alongside lane guidance features and warnings of safety cameras.
