Google Maps

Google Maps is very well known, but still, some of us don't appreciate how useful this app is. You won't need to spend money on a turn by turn specific GPS anymore, as Google Maps can also handle that for you. Available in both iOS and Android formats.

Waze Social

Waze is billed as 'the world's largest community-based traffic and  navigation app'. But what does this mean? Waze lets you share real-time traffic & road information to save time, fuel and improve daily commuting. It also lets you send your ETA to friends, and update other road users about any accidents, and even sends you notifications about the cheapest places to get fuel. Definitely an app to get.  Available on both iOS and Android operating systems.

TomTom Navigation

For those who love their standard satellite navigation,   TomTom is the app for you. Coming in at £29.99 this app is a lot more pricey than the others, which happen to be free, but it does offer the complete satellite navigation experience all from the screen of your phone. Tom Tom gives you voice guided turn by turn guidance, as well as advanced lane guidance, and speed camera notification; something not offered by other map apps. Tried and tested, this app is definitely worth the money. Available across the world and on iOS and Android operating systems.

Car Companion Apps

These 'car companion' apps (MBrace, BMW ConnectedDrive, Infiniti Connect, Tesla Motors App, Jaguar incontrol)  are offered by many manufacturers on many of the new models released today. The apps offer functionality and allow the owner to do many things from their phone. For example, Tesla's app allows the user to lock their car, and displays the current charging status of their car.
