The app makes good impression at first. But truly I don’t think it will replace my nuvi while navigating in Bangkok where decision must be made quickly. iPhone tends to delay display of current position. Easy to notice after a turn (still showing previous driving direction).
Still it’s nice to have it just in case ;). iPhone car charger highly recommended – the GPS drain the battery really quickly.
