Best Augmented Reality Navigation/GPS Apps For iPhone:

Localscope is your social data powered GPS app. Always know where you are and what’s around you with Localscope!

Search & discover places around you with information from multiple geo search engines & social networks: Google, Bing, Foursquare, Twitter, Wikimapia.

Browse your search results in an amazingly intuitive list view with realtime direction pointers and distance meters. Lay them out on the map or look through the state of the art augmented reality view to spot the results in the real world. Map and get directions to your results, call them directly or store them to your address book.

©ompass360° is an Augmented Reality compass where you can see the geographic directions around you right on your live camera preview. Against other compass applications ©ompass360° can calculate/display heading data just from the direction you're actually points with the iPhone camera (360° heading mode). It removes all the heading inaccuracy since the calculations are merely independent from the actual device orientation*.

Of course you can still use it as a classic "flat" compass just by holding your device horizontally (camera pointing to the ground so), hereby ©ompass360° switches to classic heading mode.

  • Where To? makes it incredibly easy to locate the closest steakhouse, bank branch, billiard club or anything else you may be looking for, at the drop of a hat! Finally you can find local businesses without any typing, using a slick, intuitive user experience.
  • With just a few taps, you can find local hits for any type of place you are looking for. Check the found places on the built-in map or in a list sorted by distance. Then call to make a reservation or check the homepage using the built-in web browser.
  • Explore a stunning new way of visualization with Where To? 3D (iPhone 4 or 3GS only; available via In-App-Purchase for only $0.99 for all devices under your iTunes account, free trial available). Your points of interest will be displayed on top of reality. It‘s more intuitive than ever to check out nearby locations.
  • Not sure what you want for dinner tonight? Use “Shake to Surprise” to make the choice. Take a chance and find something new and exciting!
  • Found your destination? Then let your iPhone navigate to it. Get turn-by-turn voice directions using Navigon MobileNavigator, TomTom or “Maps” (without voice).
  • Wanna meet with some friends at this new Sushi place in town? Pass along the location info by email, text message, Twitter, Facebook or copy it to the clipboard – It‘s your choice.

Augmented Car Finder allows you to find your car wherever you parked it. Once you load the application, in the augmented reality view you can see the direction it is located, the street address close to your present position, and the street address close to where you parked.

Heads-Up Navigator provides an immersive, "augmented reality" navigation experience by overlaying floating 3D labels directly onto the world around you, as shown by your phone's built-in camera. The display tilts and pivots as you move your phone through real space, letting you easily visualize landmarks and addresses near you. You have to experience it to understand!

iPhone and iPod Touch devices other than the iPhone 3GS don't have a built-in electronic compass, so the direction you are facing can't be automatically determined. On those devices, a wireframe mode is provided that shows a 3D visualization, with arrows for manually rotating through virtual space. The wireframe visualization still tilts automatically as you tilt your phone.

All modes show an small overlay map of your surroundings, which rotates in real time with the phone, so you can navigate confidently along city streets. If you face your phone towards the ground, the map expands to fill the entire screen for ease of navigation.

Easily indicate the locations you want to visualize by entering addresses or the names of important parks or landmarks. You can also manually enter locations of interest by directly adjusting a map pin.
