List of GPS apps and their problems on Verizon iPhone 4
Thought I would start a master thread of gps apps and the problems they have as ALOT of people are reporting problems with Viphones...here are the programs I have used so far and problems they have
Flixster Movies: puts me roughly 100 miles away
Vz Nav: Puts me about 15 miles away when I first logged on
Navigon:Loses Gps while navigating
I will update this list as I try more and more people fill in their programs and the problems they have...hopefully people will just look here instead of posting a ton of threads, also maybe we can put pressure on the software makers to get those updates rolling out to use the cdma chip instead of the gsm version they have been using!

I don't know if its still this price. I got the Iphone 4 when Verizon ticked me off. I had it for almost 4 weeks and returned it. In the middle of having it for ATT, I brought Copilot live. They had a sale for $5 dollars. Down from $80. It was only for that weekend. Don't know if it is still that price. Look it up. The program runs great. I use to Have Copilot live with my Pocket PC years ago. Anyway when I synced my new Iphone it went right in to it and works like a charm. One problem is that it stores everything on your phone so it take over a gig of your memory.

Navigon is a good app but I had a few errors and had a problem re-routing. Personally I use Tom Tom as my gps app. I have not really run into any problems with it. I waited until it went on sale tho. That's always your best bet that way you usually can get it half off.

heres an interesting one, and remember this thread is for ANY program that uses the gps chips.....but foursquare puts me on a different street (there are TWO mogadore roads here in ohio, and I am roughly 10-12 miles away on the other one) but it puts me on the other mogadore road so I cant check in where I am. NEVER had this problem before and I have gone through a lot of phones.

I'm using mapquest 4 mobile - used it twice for 2 different one-hour-drive trips. During one trip the GPS stopped working for a couple minutes, but my husband said it was because we were at the entrance to a military base and that it would have happened no matter what GPS I was using. Other than that, mapquest worked flawlessly. It gives verbal turn-by-turn navigation and it's FREE

I have Navigon, and while I don't like the interface or the lack of customization that I was used to with TomTom (originally got Navigon for my iPad), it hasn't failed routing me yet. Local trips as well as a couple hours of driving.
I'd prefer TomTom, but can't bring myself to buy it when I already bought Navigon and it has universal binaries.
