Many people coming to the country with car hire at the rental requests that you add to the car navigation or inquiring about a car equipped with a navigation. Of course, this applies to people who have never been in Poland and do not know the area, but to a large extent, these are also people who come here, but the rapid expansion of road infrastructure in recent years caused that do not know about many new ways, eg. A ring road which you can get straight to the airport at Okecie and often without navigation tear through the city, Al. Krakow or street. Wigury Street. Unfortunately for rented navigation you have to pay a certain rate for each day, or pay extra for the navigation in the car factory mounted higher price for renting a car so equipped.
Fortunately, there are cheaper and easier ways to very good and the current car navigation.
First, of course, navigation with Google Maps. Sam navigation is free and can be used on all products that use Android, or installed on Apple products. However, many people are concerned, moreover, wrongly, on charges related to the transmission of data during operation of the navigation. Fortunately, the Directive of the European Commission made today that the fee for the use of data roaming are much higher than in the country of registration of the SIM card, and soon throughout the EU roaming charges will be equally low. Unfortunately, people arriving from outside the EU no longer have this comfort.
The second solution is the application Poland AutoMapavery popular in the country. This product is also well advanced and updated frequently as Google Maps. It is also payable, which unfortunately against free Google navigation might seem unattractive. However, the system has an indisputable advantage - the whole map of Europe is Polish or loaded into memory and the program works offline, ie not connected to the Internet at work and does not receive data. Just before traveling to download from the iTunes or Google Play application together with the corresponding map intereującą us - so far without charge. Especially for people arriving from outside the EU it is a huge facilitation.
There remains the question of fees. Normal price suggested for the Polish map is 229.00 zł, and the map of Europe is 429.00 zł. Of course, these prices may seem high, but the prices are for the full, unlimited version. And only for Windows. However, when we go to the version for iOS and Android, the situation changes dramatically. Sam downloaded application allows for a free trial period with full functionality for 7 days, both iOS and Android. This time, in most cases it is sufficient for those arriving and rarely Rotki time. But what if the stay is longer than 7 days or when we come more often? Automap creator came up with a great solution - a temporary license. Best of all, these licenses can be purchased for a period of 7 days, 90 days and 366 days, but the best offer for przyjeżdąjących is a short 7-day license for 9, 90 zł gross and Polish map 16.99 zł for the map of Europe.
