There is no doubting coverage is network dependent, In Australia, there are three mobile network owner/operators: Telstra, Optus, and Vodafone. All other mobile service providers lease service from one of these three networks.

Currently, Australia’s number one network is Telstra, for the best coverage, fastest speeds and reliability.

Like any mobile network, coverage on the Telstra Mobile Network depends on the mobile handset itself and where you’ll be using your device – metropolitan areas, regional areas, rural areas, out at sea or indoors.

One way you can be sure that you’re experiencing the best possible coverage in regional and rural locations. Is by choosing a Telstra ‘Blue Tick’ tested mobile phone, which offer enhanced cellular performance, meaning better coverage in rural and regional areas.

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are the first smartphones to receive “4G Blue Tick Certification” from Telstra, up until now, Telstra’s Blue Tick only tested for calls over 3G. Given the transition to 4G calling technology, Telstra has now extended Blue Tick testing to its 4G network. However, the Blue Tick certification only applies to voice coverage, rather than data speeds.

The current list of Telstra ‘Blue Tick’ devices: 

  • Apple iPhone: 8 and 6s
  • Samsung Galaxy: S10, S10+, S10e, Note 9, S9, S9+, S8 and S8+
  • Telstra: Tough Max 2, Flip 2, EasyCall 3 and 4

More and more people are giving up on old navigation devices and are using GPS on smartphones instead. GPS stands for Global Positioning System.
GPS is a radio navigation system. It uses radio waves between satellites and a receiver inside your phone to provide location and time information to any software that needs to use it. GPS is precise, but it’s slow and uses a lot of power.

When you want your location from your phone you probably use AGPS: Assisted Global Positioning System. AGPS adds cellular location data to assist geolocation. Your phone carrier knows where you are since your phone “pings” cell towers. When you can see three or more towers the phone company can triangulate where you are. How precise this is will depend on the strength of the signal between your phone and the tower, but usually, it’s good enough to be used for location data.

There are a number of free navigation apps available, Android and iPhone users have access to the free Google Maps app, which shows your current position and offers voice direction. Apple has also released their own version for iOS devices that is simply called Maps.

Google Maps is by far the most widely used and trusted GPS navigation app in the world. Developed by Google, and distributed for free, the app features accurate traffic data, multiple modes of transport for navigation and directions, as well as automatic re-routing in navigation due to traffic conditions, or missed turns, and exits. Google Maps also offers a way to download and save regional maps for offline use—you just need to do a little preparation before you leave.

So, when deciding on a Smartphone for navigation, simply ensure it is compatible with google maps!
