I got an iphone

There are several free sat nav apps that work quite well plus you can buy a Tom Tom app which I hear works very well and map updates are free, unlike on a proppa Tom Tom gadget.....



Can you get apps for a blackberry? Browse your app store......

Nokia

Nokia have good navigation which comes free with any smartphone.  The quality of the navigation and maps has improved hugely over the last few years in case anyone tried it before and didn't like it.

Depends on how much you want to spend, you can pick up Symbian based phones cheaply now e.g. C7 - decent sized screen with free navigation for just over £200 (sim free).

Having said that the new Lumia 710 which has the Windows platform is only £240 (sim free).

I used an E7 (Symbian) to get me around on the bike last year and it did a good job taking me to some pretty remote places.  I have a small tank bag to put it in.  Haven't tried the navi on my Lumia 800 yet but been told it's pretty good.

We also have a Tom Tom Rider which is a bit long in the tooth now.  It was great until the battery died a slow death, now we can only use it in the car when it's plugged in.
