Magellan RoadMate offers a voice guidance option that recognizes street names and more prominent landmarks.
TomTom provides access to maps even when the user is offline by storing them locally on the iPhone. It also seamlessly integrates with other iPhone functions, including contacts, photos and music, through its multitasking support. Garmin USA integrates the local search functionality provided by Google and provides access to more than a million of points of interests, such as restaurants, business locations and gas stations. It lets users create a trip plan in advance by setting multiple stops and letting them manually order the desired destinations. With a price of 99 cents, as of 2015, MotionX GPS Drive is one of the cheapest premium options that provides route planning, live compass and speed limit notifications in addition to other common features.
