Navigation news: Ituran NDrive clone? G-Map Iberia 3D or not?
Navigation news: Ituran NDrive clone? G-Map Iberia 3D or not?

Last year was really the breakthrough for the Turn-by-Turn Voice guided GPS applications, appearing first on the Market was Navigon with Sygic running up closely. These two apps did set a new standard to beat. This has been attempted later on by iGO My way, TomTom, GMap, CoPilot Live and NDrive, all having their own selling points.

Anyone already heard about Ituran? Me neither, but they have just entered the App Store with a GPS edition for DACH; Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Ituran GPS comes from Israel and what is striking is that it looks just like NDrive. Even the N logo is still there in the menu section. Ituran GPS has released 4 edition in the last week; Ituran DACH, Ituran NA, Ituran W.Eur and Ituran Israel.

My guess is that NDrive has licenced its software to Ituran GPS, who is specializing a niche for Jewish people. Maybe that is a good move of NDrive, to even further segment the market. NDrive has already the most GPS editions in the iTunes App Store. Recently they have also started with cheap city maps, some with satellite images.

G-Map Iberia

G-Map is already some time in the App Store, their editions were mainly for the US market. In the second half of 2009, they have put Europe on their radar with editions for France, UK & Ireland, DACH, ALPS and now also Iberia for almost 32 Euro. I am still not sure what to think about G-Map.

On the iTunes pages they claim to have 3 views; North-up, Heading-up and 3D view. The supplied screenshots in iTunes only show 2D views however.

Maybe we should ask a promo and review it so we can answer that question ourselves.
