    How ? They have no trial available and it's NOT even available in Europe. Turn by Turn all the way. :)

    How do they expect anyone to buy it at that price and not even be able to try it out first ?

    Tell you guys what, I'll be the guinea pig. Just PayPal me $2 each and I'll let you know how the app performs.

    funny...lol. I'm gonna have to wait till at least next week. $39.99 is a lot of cash for an app. I used Garmin on my iPhone awhile back and it was great.

    'We're working on a review and video walk through. I'm taking StreetPilot on a road trip tomorrow and should have something posted over the weekend. Stay tuned...'

    Good old WPCentral, they are being the guinea pigs. Look forward to their review.

    Interesting to see how it compares to Turn by Turn :)

    Good job WpCentral..looking for ward to the review as well.

    Is Turn by Turn the best navigation app that's available for WP7 at the moment? I'm running the Mango beta and I like the maps app on it. But i never tried Turn by Turn...

    I'm very impressed with Turn by Turn for the price, it has a trial so give it a whirl and see what you think of it.

    I really like how if you take a wrong turning it plans a reroute for you rather than telling you to make a U turn etc.

    I think it's a great app for the price.

    If Turn by Turn can offer you a trial at it's asking price, I don't see why Streetpilot can't, especailly at the $40 asking price.

    Here's a review incase you missed it plmiller0905 :)

    I been using Turn by Turn. it's a great app for the price. Download your map that way your not blowing bandwidth to constantly change the map as you drive. also it has a great hybrid map right now Turn by Turn is the best on the MP.

    Got it,
    its nice to have a offical GPS Client ..
    I only wish it was tomtom

    I bought Tomtom Ver 6 on windows mobile and at that time it was 99 dollars with not map or any updates
    39 dollars for an offical app with up to date maps and others its well worth it..
    to me..

    i want to give it a go so bad. I wish they offered a trial version or at least you get a refund if you don't like the app, like how android is.

    Bought it and love it! It is fast, accurate and reroutes quickly. Much better than my old Nuvi 660.

    I would just like to add that Turn by Turn reroutes very quickly too, and costs 3.99 with the ability to download any areas you chose as offline maps. Nice :)

    Still looking forward to seeing the WPCentral review of StreetPilot to see how it compares to Turn By Turn and see what you get for your $40 (Not that I plan to buy it as TBT works perfectly for me. :)
