A few years ago, GPS devices were selling like hotcakes! Everyone wanted to have a piece of them and if you didn’t have one in your car, you’re not cool. This has turned into the opposite, nowadays. If you were still using your GPS unit, then you’re not cool. So what did people use to navigate directions? Their smartphones, of course!

But when it comes to such apps, there’s nothing smarter than using them on an Android device. In fact, Consumer Reports have tested this out. This is one area which iOS isn’t doing too well. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Android phones come with a free built in Google Navigation system.

Meanwhile, iPhone users still need to download apps that have a GPS navigation. Even though there are several of these apps available for free, there is no denying how good other apps can be—particularly the ones that require a fee.

“There are plenty of free options available, but we’ve found you tend to get what you pay for,” said Jim Travers from Consumer Reports.
