    I use tom tom go at £14.99 a year. Comes with all of Europe. Download the country as required. I like the speed camera and congestion alerts along with speed limit for the road you are on. You can also import gpx roures etc but a little fiddly. (Sygic seems to get good reviews)
    As a back up I use Googlemaps. This provides far better traffic warning than tom tom but you need data.

    Cannot see me ever going back to a dedicated satnav

    You are correct.
    I used Sygic for a while but its ability to plot the best route without toll roads is lacking, so went back to WeGo. Daft name though.

    Thanks for all the helpful and interesting comments and advice!
    HERE WeGo is loaded, will try it out!
    I can see a glitch in my cycling route from here to Harold's Cross, Google Maps know a way that WeGo does not, maybe if I cycle that way, it will learn it!
    Absolutely amazing technology!

I tend to use it mostly for finding out where I am when being driven around or walking in an unfamiliar town or city.

    An excellent app. A tenner or so for the full world licence. I have most of Europe on my iPhone and iPad.

    Just do not forget when you have downloaded all the maps, to set it back to offline use, in the settings, as when you download maps, it automatically puts it back in online mode, logical yes............

    When asking about software like this, what do you intend to use it for?

    Some, very few, will render up what I’d call ‘biker friendly twisties’ as they are geared to car drivers who just want to get from A to B. Of course some will allow you to avoid motorways or, more commonly, toll roads which might do the job. But if you want something that will potentially plot your holiday down the D roads, you might well have to pay a little for something like Kurviger and its sister app.

    But if you just want A to B and don’t care how it works, then there is a world of choice.
