The crowded iPhone GPS nav market is already starting to resemble a Southern California freeway on a Friday afternoon. But two just-launched GPS apps by Portuguese-based NDrive are different: they cover a much smaller area — they also carry a much lighter price tag.
The two apps, NDrive Los Angeles and NDrive New York City, cost $3.99 a pop, and are on sale during Black Friday for $2.99 each. NDrive has been outfitting our friends across the pond with GPS devices since 2005, but the two new city-cenetered iPhone apps mark the company’s first adventure into the US market
The apps look like they cover the two metropolises in gorgeous detail, with 3D-rendered landmarks, and an abundance of detail. One thing to note, though: The prices cover map licenses for one year only, which probably means forking over another couple of bucks every year.
