Does your dad have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch? If so, then you are no longer stuck for ideas on what to get your dad. If he’s a gadget freak, an app for dad might just be perfect!
Not just for the US and Canada, but Ireland, the UK and many other countries, this satellite navigation map for GPS is perfect for driving around cities and for helping you to navigate around busy traffic jams and congested areas.
Otherwise, you won’t need a signal with this app as it can be used on the iPad or iPhone offline instructing you on how to get from A to B to C.
It consists of multiple features which are worth reading through yourself but to summarize here, its greatest strengths are that it’s firstly available on 3G/3GS/4/4S, iPad WiFi + 3G networks.
It announces street names which saves you time from having to look at the screen, which is a much safer way to navigate - especially if you're concentrating on trying to stay on the proper side of the road!
It’s available in English, Spanish, and French and is argued to be one of the best apps for listing the fastest routes with the clearest navigation experience.
That said, we're not quite sure why it needed to integrate with Facebook. Further recent user reviews suggest that if you have a previous version, when you upgrade previous routes may be wiped, so check with developers first.
