NAVV Canada GPS For iPhone

There are a ton of great GPS apps available in the App Store but I have been particularly happy with NAVV Canada, a GPS app that I have been using for some time.

Like most GPS apps, NAVV Canada is a stand-alone, turn-by-turn navigation app. The app keeps menus and on-screen options to a minimum which makes it an easy navigation app to use. The responsiveness of the app is also very good, at least on the iPhone 4. On the iPhone 3GS however it might lag a little bit.

One of the major benefits of the app is that when NAVV Canada is downloaded, the maps/points of interest are downloaded in full to the iPhone. In other words, you can use the map functions without any sort of Internet connection. This is why the app comes in at a whopping 200+MB!

Some of the other more notable features include multitasking support (you can navigate away from the app and come back where it left off), accurate routing, 3D renderings of buildings, and radar/speed limit notifications.

With so many GPS navigation apps to choose from today, it can definitely be tough to find a solid app. For me, NAVV has worked very well. If you’re interested, check it out!

NAVV Canada is available in the App Store for $24.99.

    Strange I haven’t heard much about this app anywhere else…

    After downloading several so-called GPS apps that supposedly work in Canada, I have yet to find one that will successfully navigate in Edmonton on the iPhone.

    I won’t even try to list the various problems I’ve had, and I’m not about to invest $25 only to add more to the list.

    Can someone please find me a good GPS for the iPhone that works properly in Edmonton for less than $50?

    Not much of a ‘review’. You mention none of the features, how complete the POI are, how quickly it acquires a position. Very insightful to mention that all the maps reside on the phone…. never heard of that before….(LOL)

    Only 200+ MB?  My TomTom app comes in at over a GB at least. 🙂

    I’ve had no issues so far with TomTom.  The maps are pretty much up to date.

    I have tomtom as well and I love it! I’ve had zero problems with it as well. But I live in Toronto so I don’t know if it’s different.

    WOW a 200MB?  That’s it?  More like a minuscule 200MB.  LMAO!  Average preloaded maps for Navigon and TomTom are 1.7-1.8GB.  If you are using Panoramic 3D Maps with Navigon, that slaps on an extra 500MB on top of the 1.8GB.

    I’ve used it in both Ottawa and Halifax (and all point in between) without any problems

    If really don’t need a GPS but just wanted a basic one… take a look @ “navfree.”  It gets me around Southwestern Ontario just fine… and its free.

    I’ve been extraordinarily unhappy with Navigon.  I live in Toronto and have the Traffic addon, and Navigon is obscenely inaccurate when it comes to predicting travel times.  I have no idea why… you’d think of all places, Toronto would have tons of traffic information available to Navigon.  But “10-minute” trips frequently become 20- or 30- minutes trips.  If Navigon is the best out there… yikes.
