    Default Use WAZE

    I use Waze. It's free and adds social aspects to it as well... i love it so far. I've had for about 5 weeks and have no complaints yet!

    TomTom's not the only option for locally stored map data. OP should clarify if locally stored maps are a must have or not.


    It's not $20/quarter. It's $20 and updates are available quarterly. It looks to be a one-time payment but that's not totally clear to me.


    +1. Very common topic.
    i am also not clear on the updates is it a one time fee or yearly fee?

    Did you miss this above?? I'll summarize: Navigon's FreshMaps is a ONE TIME in-app purchase for quarterly updates for at least 2 years. Is that not clear?

    I have them all, Magellan Roadmate, Garmin Streetpilot, TomTom, Navigon,, Telenav, Copilot Live, Mapquest, etc. My choice is Magellan Roadmate.It has a nice balance of features, onboard maps, free traffic, red light cameras and I like the ding that it makes at the point of turn.

    TomTom is nice, in fact I have the XL340TM Live, but they have a problem with their maps. It simply does not understand the highway/freeway system so if in New York city I ask it to avoid highway/freeway for rush hour travel it simply doesn't work. All others do.

    Navigon. Now it is even better because you don't need to download all the maps - you can only download these you immediately need.

    Waze by far is my favorite. Free, Fun to use, why use anything else.

    I'm using MotionX GPS Drive. It's inexpensive, accurate, and easy to use.The maps are "live," but can be downloaded in advance to prevent interruptions in poor service areas.

    Voice guidance is included for 30 days, and requires a monthly or annual subscription after the initial period. Not a deal-breaker, in my opinion, because the total cost is still far less than other alternatives.

    The app gets stellar reviews in the App Store.

    Know at least 15 friends who use it, and experienced nothing that the poster posted with his experience. Plus the author is very helpful

    If Waze is the only PND solution you've ever used, I'm sure it's the bees knees for you... but if you've ever used a Garmin Nuvi 350 or better, you'll likely find Waze, and all the other freeware apps to be lacking by comparison.

    As far as I know the EVO still doesn't run IOS. I loved google maps on android. The turn by turn navigation made me toss my tom tom in the back of the closet. Now I got an iphone and I'm digging the tom tom back out.
    Tried Waze which is OK but doesn't get the best directions when making a long drive.
    Mapquest seems pretty good. Directions are good, I can put in multiple stops which is great. However, it gets confused with my gps when there are too many turns...I'll be following the directions to a T and suddenly it will see me off the path and giving me directions back to the road I'm already on.

    My savior is Mireo DON'T PANIC and I just love this app.
    I decided to purchase it because I was referred to it by my friend, and it was cheaper on-board app than TomTom, Garmin etc.

    Check out the following link and it will tell you everything:

    Default Re: Best GPS Navigation on Best iPhone Apps site

    Have you tried MapQuest? appfavour.com/navigation/mapquest_316126557
    MapQuest is the #1 provider of FREE voice-guided, turn-by-turn, GPS navigation for iPhone. This is the most well-known for online maps, and it has been around longer than most.

    I had an issue with Waze, and contacted them. It was fixed within a week. It's an awesome app.

    Default Which is the BEST Navigation App?

    Waze is hit or miss for me, have been using Navigon for a few months now and really love it. If you'd like you can buy just the region you live in, and if needed buy the fresh maps later and it will give you access to all of the USA. That at least gives you a slightly lower up-front cost.

    On-board maps are key for me, I hate waiting for live maps to refresh maps and routes just as I hit an area without even 3G coverage.
