Best iphone GPS for Japan
Have just finished using this on a trip down to Shikoku from Osaka. Worked great with lots of cool extra features I didn't have on my 8x more expensive GPS only car version. For example, the old model GPS needed a sun screen in bright light to be able to see the screen. With iPhones excellent screen and brightness I used it in my car as is and could see it clearly even with bright sunlight. Also the power consumption didn't seem excessive. My USA Tom Tom iPhone app stays on at all times but this one will turn off when you close the application easily. Also alows you to see your music selection and even pops up the album cover when it starts. Very cool. Really like its portability and have used it to check my location while hiking as well. It is, as stated, only in Japanese but is not that hard to use. If you can manage the language or have someone to set up your destination for you in advance it can be easily used from the favorites menu listing place you have been or want to go. For less than fifty bucks it's amazing.
