    I'm coming from an Android phone (with Google Navigation) which is really the only thing I like. Are there any Navigation apparently besides navit? If I could find something like the stock Map app on the iPhone, I'd be happy. All I neediest my route highlighted.

    And last time I checked navit, Google maps and Sprint navigation was all I had.

    Have you tried Google Maps? Also, check out BFG Maps in Preware.

    For me, I use a Garmin GPS.

    How about a map / navigation app that doesnt rely on your mobile carrier?

    I have some app ideas, but really need to get a better handle of how this jscript stuff works!

    Garmin stand alone GPS. Only use the phone GPS if I'm looking for general destination, ie; pizza, beer, coffee.

    Sprint navigation is best for trips because it will call out the route and recalculate the route if you go off track.

    Now if you don't want to hear that stuff you can turn off the volume or use google maps which, as far as I know, does not recalculate the route when you go off track. I think that it just draws a route and keeps it there, so you would need to keep looking at your phone.

    You didn't state which carrier you are on but it doesn't sound like Sprint. With Verizon you are going to have problems with GPS navigation without the workaround that is in Preware from what I have read. I don't know about AT&T or T-Mobile. I have been using Sprint Nav for many years now on feature phones and now a Pre and it has worked very well for me, gotten me where I want to go everytime, and it is powered by Navit. Good luck with whatever app you decide on.

    I'm with Sprint and use the Sprint Navigation. Works great. I can access right from calendar. Makes my life very easy. Make sure you have car charger. My TomTom broke and just use my phone now. Changed the default setting from Google to Sprint Nav in the phone.

    I am on Verizon and they have messed up the GPS on the Pre Plus so for any serious Navigation I use my TomTom.

    Bell Mobility....GoogleMaps is all I use now. Simple interface and (this was an issue for some people) the loading times have sped up dramatically, a couple of weeks ago it was in the 10-15 second range to load up, and as of yesterday it was turning on within 4 seconds. I have a Garmin that's been 'resting' in the centre console of my car for the last 6 months. Main reason I use it instead of the Garmin, I get my tracking info on my phone, and copy/paste works great going from my work app to maps, a few button presses, couple swipes and I'm in. I don't know if there's a "line-draw" feature, I've never needed to know how to get to where I'm going, so much as pin-point where it is once I'm in the area.

    BFG Maps is in the App Catalog. Loads faster than Google Maps and uses Google's api's.

    I just compared load up speeds of both and GoogleMaps was a hands-down winner by at least 5 seconds. It used to be the other way around. Although the GoogleEarth view of BFG is cool, I find the GoogleMaps view easier to see where you are going.

    I do like Sprint navigavtion quite a bit but it does have a tendency to "lose it" in a big city. With close city streets and a gps signal that peraps is not as percise as stand-alone, it can go into a recalculating frenzy that you don't see with dedicated devices. And if you have to take a short detour, by the time it recalculates you might be now on a different street so it recalculates again.

    think it is a combo of the time it takes t recalculate the route and the level of gps accuracy sets it off into a tizzy!
