iphone4 voice navigation?

I was very impressed with my friend's Verizon Android (Droid) phone's navigation with voice directions. Does the Maps app that comes with the iphone4 support voice directions and if so how do I turn it on? TIA.

No, Google Navigation isn't on the iPhone. Google Navigation is necessary for voice guided navigation. Try Mapquest 4 Mobile to get free voice guided turn by turn directions.

There are many map apps in the app store, several with turn by turn voice navigation and (more importantly) maps stored on the device - driving 200 miles and downloading maps all the way would be an interesting experiment in data use and latency.

 

I use Copilot Live USA http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/copilot-live-usa/id373661427?mt=8&tduid=06183a3998a23350585adfaa2e02f...

 

That's $5 plus $3 in-app purchase for voice navigation. $8 for real GPS nav is a pretty decent deal Smiley Wink

I have a few different GPS applications and out of them I would have to rate them as (best to worst)

Navigon > TomTom > CoPilot

An app that I have been very impressed with is called, MotionX-GPS Drive.

I've been very impressed with Skobbler turn by turn, voice guided navigation. Totally free of any costs and it works. Great.

Looks good, but seems like a lot of work on the user's side. Smiley Wink

I used TomTom for years on WinMo... CoPilot is far better than the free nav apps, and comes with phone-resident maps for the entire US. An $8 product is probably not going to be competative with a $50+ one. So, it's not a bad tradeoff in my opinion.
