Apple's launch of the iPhone 4 has seen the greatest excitement for a new phone ever. With a super-high resolution screen, ridiculously slim dimensions, HD videos and 100 percent features, it is not hard to see why.

Apple's iPhone 4 gets you accurate maps when you need them. Lets say you are in an unfamiliar locality looking for a nearby restaurant. Using your iPhone, you can pinpoint your location on the map to figure out how to get there from where you are. Using a combination of Wi-Fi, GPS and cellular towers, the iPhone 4 finds you the location accurately and quickly. As and when you progress, moving to another place, the iPhone updates the location automatically. Users can even drop a pin to mark their location and share it with their friends via email or MMS.  

In case you need to find the nearest cafe shop, the iPhone has got the answer. Simply type in “coffee” in the search field of the map and the iPhone is already displaying nearby coffee houses represented by pins. Searching works fine--even entering business names and specific addresses. As soon as you find what you were looking for, simply tap the pin to pop up more information like web addresses, phone numbers and more.

Maps look amazingly crisp and detailed on the high resolution Retina display of the iPhone 4. Users can switch between satellite view, map view and hybrid view and can even see a street view of a particular address. Double tap or simply pinch to zoom in and out of the map. Traffic information on the iPhone indicates traffic speed in easy to read yellow, green and red highlights along your route.

Wi
th the iPhone's GPS, users can view a list of turn by turn directions, follow highlighted map route and track your progress. The best part is that user's with the public transit directions, can see at what time the next bus or train leaves. Know where you are and which way you are looking using the built in digital compass that rotates on the onscreen map to match the direction the user is facing.

The features of Apple iPhone 4 does not stop with this, it has got lot more to amaze its users. As far as
Sat Nav is concerned, users could blindly opt getting an iPhone for its accuracy and user friendly aspects.
