Dedicated GPS vs Smartphone GPS

Yes, smartphone GPS is good, good enough for average use. Just like smartphone cameras, they are average in terms of photo quality and it can never replace a DSLR. Therefore a dedicated GPS is always better than a smartphone GPS, go for TomTom or Garmin.

    You don’t know what you’re talkig about. Smartphone cameras have already replaced the DSLR cameras. And a smartphone GPS is always better than a dedicated GPS. However, it’s true only for flagship smartphones.

      point and shoot, yes, but not DSLR. You can never take professional quality photos with a smartphone, no matter how good the camera is. If that is the case, will you allow someone to take your wedding pic with the best smartphone camera?

    I do not want a free app, I want a good app especially when traveling to Canada. Using Nokia 1520 Winphone 10 latest updates. Been using a stand-alone Garmin for decades but like idea of using larger WinPhone.

    I like the paid Copilot for the U.S. but after downloading North American maps twice, there is no local street level maps for Hamilton/Toronto – or perhaps all of Canada. Looks like the copilot website is dying? Many of the links are dead or graphics are gone. Is coPilot on its last legs?
