Why didn't they use garman? Their much better than tom tom.

Any1 know why Apple didn't buy TomTom? I mean they're cheap, their market cap is like 750mil, that's small change for Apple. I think eventually they will buy them. Apple doesn't need TomTom but they need TeleAtlas IP.

Quite a pleasant surprise that a lot are saying that Nokia Drive is the best considering the sales of their smartphones.

They've offered free turn by turn navigation for over 2 years now and they also own Navteq.

I have TomTom on my iphone 4. I have no problem with it, even when there is no mobile reception. It works off GPS.

While we were hiking in Germany my friends were using TomTom with their iPhones. No signal or no routes. My N9 did everything vice versa offline :)

KK, 12 Jun 2012I can't get my head around the fact that people use their phones... moreI think yours is the best statement,,Just have a proper stand alone satnav and let your smartfone do all your usual stuff,I do, its so much better and easier to keep devices seperate in this scenario.

This was a dumb move by Apple. There is no transit information on Apple's maps. People in the urban cores around the world depend on Google's transit info.
And Tom Tom? What's the matter, Garmin too expensive?
