maps on iPhone is not voice activated

I was hoping the GPS on iPhone would be a voice activated one. It is not. I was told I had to buy an app. Looking for one I am so confused because some are really reasonable but you have to buy the annual subscription to use it.

Can you give your best advice what to get for the iPhone?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have not used this feature but I'm sure someone here has. Wait 24 hours and come back to see if we can find something for you.

The GPS is simply a component, the app that uses it is GOogle maps, which is NOT turn by turn direction, however there are several expensive or subscription turn by turn directions applications for iPhone. I suggest that you return your iPhone and buy an android device, which have a version of google maps with a free turn by turn directions application built in.
