Is it worth getting a GPS app?

iOS & iPadOS
I've recently started going to places more independantly for example, going to friends houses or something without my parents dropping me off. I've been taught where to go, but for some reason I still feel like I need the odd prompt of where to turn for example. Hopefully you understand what I mean. So is it worth getting a GPS app as I said for places I already know just need the odd prompts of where to turn or street/road names? If so which one? I have an iPhone 5 if that makes any difference. Thanks for any help.

Hello: Your question is something only you can answer. What I mean is that only you can determine how independent you want to be or how much you feel like you might need that extra assurance from having a GPS to fall back upon. Of course, I believe that the Maps app offers walking turn-by-turn navigation now, although I personally don't really use it much. Still, you should play around with that one. Perhaps it will meet your needs and you will decide not to get a GPS app. Again, it's all up to you and what you feel like you need to successfully navigate around. Good luck with whatever decision you make.

Yes you should get a gps app such as motion x or google maps or you can use the maps app.

Hello, I know that if I was going somewhere by myself, or with family I would definitely want to use the GPS absolutely feel company that we know where were going.
