    I would like to get some fresh opinions on what everyone is using for navigation. I dont mind paying for an app if it is worth it. So thanks in advance, just want to see what people are using now.

    Navigon. Loads a full map, so a data connection not required to have it work... and it rocks on an iPad.

    I use "Navigon" as mentioned above. It is extremely accurate and does a great job of re-routing you if you make a wrong turn or go too far past a turn. I love the "Night Mode" feature, as it makes it easier to see the screen when it is dark. When I travel I keep my iPhone plugged into the car charger so I don't have to worry about the app draining the battery. Although I have the app on my iPad 2 as well, I have only used it on my iPhones so far because they are smaller and more portable than my iPad.

    Here are a few screenshots of Navigon's features:

    I also support TomTom. While Navigon has a "prettier" interface, I found TomTom to be more functional in the smaller details, such as directing the user to the side of the street for the specified destination (without fiddling with even more settings like Navigon) and showing better accuracy in traffic info. Compared to Navigon, TomTom has louder, clearer voices (that also mention the street names and turns... really your choice) and better POI within the app itself (no need to fire up other apps to do so).

    Perhaps the only con I can find about TomTom is the fact that its default interface appears to be a bit old school, but the user is given some options for customization. As far as its accuracy in getting you from A to Z in the fastest way possible, this app wins in my book.

    I have been using TomTom for over 2 years now. Every time I think I've found a better app, I always divert back to it. For me, TomTom is the most accurate even if it doesn't have the slickest interface. A GPS app isn't worth a darn if it can't get you from point A to point B.

    I've used the TomTom app too... didn't like it... Navigon is as close to my Garmin Nuvi as an app... even more so than Garmin's own app, which I've used as well - it's better than TomTom, but not as good as Navigon in my experience... that said, I still prefer my Nuvi.
