    Default Any iPhone GPS with text to speech TTS

    anyone know of any GPS apps for the iPhone 3Gs that has Text to Speech?

    I had garmin on my BB STorm and it worked quite well.

    I have done some web searching and am betting that none are available at this time. Any thing possibly coming down the pike?

    Also I know there are some threads re the Tom Tom GPS but i'll be darn if I can find them again.

    Thanks all,

    It appears that the only one close is Navigon. The others like Tom Tom and iGo My Way tell you when to turn , but not the street name.

    I wonder if it is a matter of memory, processor usage, or the lack of a great TTS engine. I have a stand alone GPS head unit (not DVD navigation) in my truck and it has TTS, and it still has issues saying the name of streets and such.
