Garmin UK & Ireland
Needs a few more versions before it can truly compete with TomTom, but it’s still a good app.
Garmin UK & Ireland Review
by on September 28, 2011
Some debates have raged for years. United or City? Kirk or Picard? TomTom or Garmin?
Perhaps not, but these two big sat-nav names have been in locked in fierce competition for years. If you’ve used a Garmin device, it’s instantly familiar, and it’s easy to use even if you’ve never touched one. Navigation is good, options for defining waypoints are rich, there are lots of features that make the app better than entry-level stand-alone units. The voice prompts are clear, though the visual display can be cluttered.
There is, essentially, nothing wrong with this app, and if you’re used to Garmin, buy it.
It’s not yet as polished as the app from TomTom, nor does it have as much data about road speeds behind it, but it is £10 cheaper. So, TomTom or Garmin? As with our other examples, we could claim that there’s no right answer, but we’d be lying: TomTom is better, but by less distance than you might think.
