NDrive is a satellite navigation application, available for a great number of platforms including iOS, Windows Mobile and even Bada OS (as featured on the latest Samsung Wave S8500). It’s recently made the move to the Android Market, and is available to download for Android devices right now, so let’s take a look!
Although NDrive is a free download from the Marketplace, it doesn’t come with any maps pre-loaded on to the application, for two reasons. Firstly, the maps are huge. If you download a map of UK and Ireland, it will take up over 200mb of space, so it needs to be installed on to your micro SD memory card. Secondly, the maps cost (obviously), so you pick and choose which maps you need. For example, the UK and Ireland map will set you back â‚¬30. You can purchase larger maps too; Western Europe costs â‚¬60Â and North America is available for â‚¬40.
The application itself works really well. When you enter a destination, you’re given as choice of routes to choose from, with various options such as quickest or avoiding tolls. You’re then given the total distance to your destination from your current location, and how long it will take to get there. Of course, the application uses GPS, so it’s really accurate when being used.
