yeah I have a two year old garmin and I love Navigon on my phone, but the Garmin still has a place on my dash for some trips. If it is a long trip or a complicated trip, it is too much of a pain the butt to keep the Navigon app running while I'm listening to podcasts, calling people, and checking mail.
So don't give up on the standalone GPS yet.
The iPhone app is awesome for quick trips or when I fly to other cities.

I like it too. I never could justify spending a lot of money on a GPS app as I would rarely use it but always wanted one just in case I would need it. This is a good solution for people like me. Only purchase the months when we need it and the maps and POI are always updated.

i am using navigon, and love it.. its a big program 1.3gb.. but thats because it has all the maps in north america preloaded into your iphone.
ok just checked.. its only 8.9mb.. and it states that it is always up to date data for you bla bla.. so in other words it does use data.
so once you cross the border when your iphone starts using the gps program than it will be using roaming data..
you have couple options..
1st : call your service provider and add a roaming data package.. which my friend did when he came from san fran to toronto canada to visit..
2nd : with the amount of data the gps drive going to cost you . you might as well buy navigon..

Copilot Live is on sale for 20 dollars this weekend. Seems reasonable for the price and what you get. Plus it stores the maps on your phone for us and canada so you dont need data to run. Anyone have this? I am seriously considering the purchase.

Now that (for a very limited time) TomTom and Navigon are the same price, is one better than the other? The thing I hear that I don't like about Navigon is that it does not provide the directions in a list type format. Other than that, it seems the two are very close in terms of most used features. I've also read that TomTom's POI index is a little more complete. I can see that being a plus, especially when in areas I'm not familiar with.
