    Default [Advice] Difference between google maps/navizon ?

    Just as the title sais... I'm a bit confused as to the difference between google maps and navizon are... I thought before that maps was not able to pinpoint my location, but just tried it and works fine (over wifi)... I also thought it could not give you "step by step" directions to reach a destination, but google maps can do this too!

    Does anyone know the difference between the two, and give me a good argument on why I should keep Navizon on my phone if google maps can do the same thing?? Thanks in advance everyone/anyone lol

    Navizon was released before google's location utility and it was a solution when the baseband for 1.1.3 was not posible to unlock.

    Honestly it's up to you but i prefer the stuck google aplication

    Both Navizon and Google maps use the same hardware, wifi and base towers. The only difference is that they have different databases is many areas, So one might give you a very rough guess, the other may be very accurate. It depends if their datbases have a thorough coverage of points in your area to form accurate triangulation matrixes.

    Mr Benz, you are not a new member anymore and you know this forum has a title format policy, so please try to stick on it (read my signature).

    Thread renamed and moved to the right section.

    The big difference for me is that Navizon actually locates me, and google maps cannot.
