    You may end up paying more in data charges overseas than, say, Copilot Live, would cost to buy.

    But in you own country, looks good.

    The sat nav/google on the i phone works well but not adequate for motoring navigation.

    Ive been in cars with the driver using his phone in a cradle with the tomtom software on it. Rubbish. It may have changed but they had to use a headset to get the instructions and the screen was so small it was pretty much useless. My TomTom one which is 100 years old has been the best techology investment ever. Its clear, large screened and loud and very easy to use. I cant see how this will ever be bettered on a mobile device and despite new developments in actual sat navs I have never upgraded, just updated the memory, software and maps. If it aint broken dont fix it.
