Is nav4all free?
Is it a free application... or are there charges to use it?
it is free untill 2010 i think which they are vague about. they make it sound like eventually they many decide to charge, but no later than a certain date which they say before you get the app. For now its totally free!
no problem! You can also try Amaze which is also free.
which is better?
i try Nav4all but cannot get the gps to work... seem like a good program thou
i prefer Nav4all, as when I used Amaze the maps seemed a bit off (like telling me to go left when I physically could not). I've been using nav4all and havent had any issues. Amaze does have a better u.i. though.
trust the man pictured to the left >.<
I just took a quick spin with both of them... I have heard some bad things about amAze, with directions leading to nowhere, turns where there arent supposed to be and so on...
But it was quite the opposite for me... I tried making directions to a friends house.. Its straight down a major road, right down another major road, and a quick turn off...
nav4all had me go past his house, turn on a looping road, and come around back... instead of one left turn it took 3... past him, around him, and back to him.
Amaze took me straight down the main roads...
I had everything set up right on nav... Like quickest route and all options...
It kinda makes me scared to use either. The "reliable" one doesn't work too well for me and and the one that works for me is the one everyone else seems to have problems with
when you set nav4all on quickest route it takes it literally in terms of distance. Easy rider is the simplest setting that avoids all of that. Amaze simply didnt get me to the places I wanted to correctly at all. I put it off as the city in in right now (FT. Walton Beach, FL), but it wasnt even slightly off. It was absolutely incorrect.
the key to see which is right for you is just setting up fake drives to places you know and see how accurate they are in your area. Mine was I would go from my home to wendy's and back. I knew how to get there easily and if it said to go a different direction i would (when it was physically possible). This was how I could tell if I just had a setting that didnt really suit my needs (like shorts route; using many substreets to cut traffic and lights).
The other settings on Nav4all include tourist (never tried; and can only guess what it would do), avoid highways, use mostly highways, and stuff like that. Just stick with "easy rider" which makes it sound like slow routes, but its the simplest and really is the normal setting.

Battery pull always works for me though. Just remember to pull over if you are doing this!
