When it comes to getting directions from A to B, you can dig out the maps and plan a route in advance or make use of online mapping services to do the hard work for you. However, there is also the option of using GPS navigation in your car which will guide you through every step of your journey.

Dedicated GPS hardware is not particularly cheap, and the same goes for navigation software that is available for the iPhone. skobbler UK/Ireland Lite is a little different as it provides turn by turn voice navigation via your mobile completely free of charge.

Using the freely available OpenStreetMap system, skobbler provides precise voice instructions as you drive. With a choice of working in a bird's eye view or 2D mode, you always have a clear view of where you are and where you are heading.

Should you find that there are errors in the mapping, or your area is not covered, you are free to make edits of your own. The route planning offered by skobbler Lite is easy to use and fast to operate, and the app offers a real alternative to the likes of TomTom.


Voice guided in-car navigation which not only works wonderfully well, but is easy to use and completely free of charge - what's not to like?
