iPhone gets free satnav from Skobbler

Skobbler 3.0 has landed on the App Store, bringing with it iOS 4 compatibility and what could be the iPhone's equivalent of Google Maps Navigation, complete with turn by turn directions.

Skobbler is available free of charge and has been overhauled with an improved user interface, together with the ability to take advantage of the iPhone 4's multitasking functions.

The app's ability to pinpoint user's location using the built-in GPS antenna has apparently been improved. Spoken instructions have also been added to the tool for the first time.

100,000 UK iPhone users have already downloaded the previous version of Skobbler since its launch, but it has been best by problems since it cut ties to its former owner Navigon.

The new update seems to suggest that it is managing to survive after the split and its popularity could continue to soar amongst those who do not want to fork out for the many premium navigation apps available Apple smartphones.
