MapQuest is **FREE**, and provides spoken turn-by-turn directions with street names spoken via accurate Text-to-Speech.
Used it the yesterday when I didn't have my Garmin with me but wanted turn-by-turn directions on a two hour trip somewhere I've never been, and it worked great.
Gives you two humorous warnings prior to each turn at highway speed -- a "Prepare to turn ..." followed by a "Get ready to turn ..." -- but accurately tracked my location and gave all advisories on time. I verified that it also used the same routing as the Google Maps app for this trip.
Only downside is, of course, the required data connection (I am unaware if it cache's the planned route) but the upside is huge: FREE TURN BY TURN, TEXT-TO-SPEECH SPOKEN DIRECTIONS.

I am a converted Sprint/Palm Pre user and was disappointed that ATT did not provide a nav app like Sprint and since there is no longer an UNLIMITED DATA PLAN AVAILABLE (just venting) I did some serious investigation into the stand alone apps and after reading reviews discovered that Navigon was the app that most appealed to me..then it went on sale several weekends ago and I jumped at it. I really enjoy the functionality of the app as well as it's accuracy and speed with which it re-directs following a wrong turn or user cosen alternate route. I am seriously considering adding the TRAFFIC LIVE feature and know I have made the right choice for me.
