"Beats My Tom Tom handily"

December 29, 2009  |  By samusps

 |  Version: MotionX GPS Drive 1.1

Pros

- Live Maps
- Turns seem more accurate than Tom Tom
- Screen size readable on dash
- Cost, Cost, Cost, Cost
- Voice is clear

Cons

- Voice does not name streets
- GPS is interrupted on incoming calls

Summary

This product is amazing and at such a low cost Accurate directions and the live maps add to the excitement. Adding street names for voice, and stopping the incoming calls interruption is my only con. But this has really been a lifesaver.

"Excellent program, accuracy, needs street names."

October 02, 2009  |  By z_black

 |  Version: MotionX GPS Drive 1.1

Pros

Very fast routing
Accurate and up to date maps/street names
Easy to use interface
Caches frequently used maps for offline access (common routes you take)
Tells you to prepare for your turn ahead of time
Excellent pricing
Ipod control

Cons

Does not speak the actual names of streets
Does not have downloaded maps, so requires a cellular connection to update maps
No Traffic updates yet

Summary

Overall I love this program. It is very cheap, efficient and great. Pricing for it is 2.99/month for voice guidance, or 24.99/year. As mentioned above you get 30 days free to test it out. One thing I really like is that it still tracks your progress on the route via the gps chip even when you have no data connection. However your maps will gray out and won't show street names, but you can still see your highlighted route. As mentioned in the Pro's, it caches maps of routes you drive frequently so even with no cellular connection, those will still be visible, though those routes are also where you don't need a gps for guidance. I tested this along side my Sony NVU-44 (albeit it's outdated), and this provided much more accurate and updated directions compared to the stand-alone unit. This can easily be rectified by updating my maps for the unit. Since maps are provided via cellular network, they will always be up to date, and the MotionX company has always made solid programs and updated them frequently. This also has ipod playback capabilities via playlists or the entire library. The voice prompts are very easy to listen to and not to harsh sounding, and music playback is immediately picked back up with no delay. I highly recommend this program for someone looking into gps programs for their phone and the price is definitely right in my eyes. It doesn't have traffic updates or spoken street names, but I don't see why those can't be added at a later date.
