iPhone Navigator

The Becker has given up the ghost, I turn it on it tells me its the Becker and turns off again and the holder is also kupput.

I like the Navigator on the iPhone, but does that use up my Gb. (is that what's called data?) when in use?

Can you get TomTom for those expensive iPhones? The reason I ask is you dont need to be online for Tomtom navigation to work.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

I have Tomtom go on my phone, I think was E15.00 for the year well worth it in my opinion as it works very well.

For info...I use OsmAnd on my Android phone and it uses no data as it operates off line...the same as Tom Tom etc.......it's as good as my Tom Tom.
So I assume your set up uses little or no data as well.

I try and state simple facts in a nice way.

All that was as clear as mud to me Ted

Too much information and Im not interested in the walking or cycling routes.

Does he use that nail as a screwdriver or to play a guitar I wonder?

I have downloaded both to try.

Now I need a holder for the iPhone for the Navajo, any recommendations?

Are you sure the Becker has given up Jan? My TT battery is pretty useless so it tends to refuse to work unless it's connected to the USB and the engine is on. Otherwise it huffs and does what yours is doing.

Having said that, after I'd all the problems of not being able to download the updated EU map (a year or more ago?) I downloaded the Sygic for trucks (which has a setting for RVs) and that seems to be pretty good except.... When bowling down a motorway or dual carriageway on the continent, she would want to come off, cross the roundabout and back on... No idea. I brought it to their attention n they said they were aware and it would be changed in the update. Whether it has or not I don't know.
