Columbus Day Navigation Apps: 7 GPS Apps That Beat iOS 6 Maps

TomTom U.S. & Canada: $37.99 Android, $59.99 iOS

If only a name-brand GPS app will do, consider TomTom U.S for Android and TomTom U.S & Canada for iOS. This navigation app uses real-time traffic updates and can shave hours per week from commutes. TomTom U.S & Canada has the capacity to take geo-tagged photos on your iPhone and then map turn-by-turn directions to the location where the picture was taken. It also can navigate to contacts or copied addresses. There’s also a departure reminder feature that works by sending alerts from trips that have been added to the phone's calendar.
