I have no direct experience with T-NAVI.

But somebody who used it said it is better than the other two, Dialog SatNav and SALA GIS, atleast within Colombo area due to regular free updates, junction views etc..

As far as I know SALA does not offer their software alone to be downloaded to your own mobile devices. You have to purchase their proprietary GPS device.

If you want a cheap option you can download google map soft to your phone( if you do not have by default )then activate 3g.Will cost you less than one dollar for browsing .But it doesn't work everywhere ..It works only in major towns an urban areas and in some of rural areas ..

Hi Thirana,

Have you been to Sri Lanka and what did you use for carnavigation?

Normally I just update my Garmin Nuvi but they don't have maps for it.

I purchased maps from gpstravelmaps.com for Sri Lanka which will work with Garmin Nuvi. However I dont know how good they are yet, intend to try it out when I travel in February.
