Hi. My satnav died on me, leaving me lost and frustrated. I as wondering about getting one for the ipad or my phone (Samsung ace 2) but don't really understand how they work . I presume that you don't need internet connection? Do they work as well as the car ones you plug into the cigarette lighter? (That also doesn't work reliably.) I have a maps app on the ipad, but that only works when in range of my wireless internet at home. Would the satnav be the same? Would it completely drain the battery of the phone or ipad; ie could I use it without plugging in the charger?
You need internet to use any Satnav. I have google maps on my iPhone and it works with 3G. It's great, I use it all the time. It doesn't completely drain the battery and doesn't need plugging in really
