Wikitude Drive US is a little pricey at $14.15, but it offers an Augmented Reality approach to navigation so you see the road ahead via your device’s camera overlaid with arrows and information. This state-of-the-art feature could make things just that bit safer and efficient.

Whichever app you choose, whether you stick with free offerings or pony-up for something a little more sophisticated, we’re sure the state of Android navigation is pretty good right now with plenty of choice and some great technology. It might not be time to chuck out the dedicated GPS unit just yet (unless it sucks like mine), but that day may well be approaching soon.
