Google’s Free Satnav Outperforms TomTom

Barence writes “A real-world road test of several different satnav systems has found that the free Google Maps Navigation outperformed TomTom’s premium GPS unit. PC Pro put the satnavs through four different real-world tests, covering country roads, inner-city traffic and motorway driving. The Google satnav finished the four tests more than half an hour ahead of the top of the range TomTom Go 950 Live. “For those in rural areas or people who spend hours in their car every day, we believe the investment in a dedicated satnav device or software will still pay off,” PC Pro concludes. “But for the recreational user, it’s amazing what you can get for free.”"
