I'm another person who now uses his smartphone all the time as a sat nav as opposed to a separate sat nav device.  Given the navigation tool on my phone (Galaxy S6 edge) and presumably others syncs is based on Google Maps I have the benefit of live traffic data, it'll show me when I come to a junction how much longer my journey will take if I go one way instead of the suggested route, and whenever I am driving home from work I never set off before setting up the navigation tool on my phone in order to ensure I take the quickest route home.

Whenever we go abroad I also use an offline navigation app (Navmii) as my sat nav, I download the relevant maps to my phone beforehand, set up the locations I'm going to be travelling to/from in that country as favourites, and 99% of the time it is spot on, I'm going to be in Canada and Las Vegas next week and my phone is already set up for driving around both.

Although I haven't personally used one recently, I do recall previously having an app which identified safety camera locations and gave a warning tone when one was approaching.
