The latest freebie saves me £5 a month, this is what Vodafone were charging for SatNav on my Nokia 5800, but now all Nokia maps are free for certain models.

Also now you can get Spotify mobile but they charge as much as on the regular web, no free option anymore unless you are an old subscriber like me?!

what free sat nav app do you use?

I have google maps, but when i tried it out over a 9 mile trip was not very impressed, do you know any better free ones.

my tomtom is old and on its last legs hoping to use the apps as a replacement

Which version of Android are you on?
I have the Samsung Galaxy S running Android 2.2 this has Navigation as an app also voice search and voice dial. I find Navigation to be quite good but not quite TomTom standard.
