Almost three-quarters of Dutch consumers use a navigation app on their phone, up from 55 percent two years ago. While they are mainly used in the car, the apps are increasingly used also for biking and walking, according to the latest results from the Telecompaper Consumer Panel. Google Maps remains the most popular navigation app, used by around half of consumers, while TomTom and Apple Maps also saw increased usage. Only 9 percent said they never use a navigation app, down from 19 percent two years ago.
