and you can you use it on foot, cycling etc - without using your data allowance, connects direct to GPS.

it's a one off payment and you simply download again to a new phone when you get one.

think I paid £19, it's certainly worth a look at

TomTom phone app, £14 a year including speed cameras and live traffic. Any map in the world, so if you go on Holiday to the Caribbean, USA etc. download a new map.The live traffic is so good it is slightly weird.
Can be used off-line but then no live traffic. When using data it uses very little. If you se it on android you can load it on every android device you have (don't use an iPhone so don't know about iOS).

I just use Google maps and Google drive on my phone, all free, keeps you up to date with traffic, offers diversions telling you how much time it would save, and shows a photo of your destination when you arrive. I've never had anything better - that includes Nissan sat navs, Skoda sat navs, Garmin and TomTom. 

One day in the future car makers might just suddenly click that they're wasting their time producing any sort of inbuilt sat nav, and instead offer a screen that can be bluetoothed/cast to by a phone or other device - that would be an ideal for so many people, so any sat nva, mapping or media you want can be displayed on a built in touchscreen in the car.

Before satnavs were fitted to cars I had 2 Garmins because I dropped the first. They were brilliant, got both on a deal that gave lietime updates, lane ID, fixed speed cam notification and speed warnings. The last one also acted as a bluetooth speaker and connector for my phone. Can't fault them and the maps were never wrong.

They do its called smart link.
My car has sat nav as standard but the smartlink duplicates this with Google maps on phone.
Not sure if TomTom phone would come up with Smartlink.
Personally think built i sat nav is much too expensive and apart from giving directions on maxidot is not as good as my £89 Tomtom with lifetime maps.
