    What's your favorite car-GPS navigation app for iPhone 3GS, 4S, or iPod Touch?

    Telenav GPS doesn't work on my unlocked 3GS. Waze does work, but seems sluggish.

    What's for favorite FREE app for GPS? And...
    What's your favorite PAID app?

    Like I said, you probably have it muted. If you don't see the lips with a line, it's muted.

    Well while I was trying to get the directions I had the lips on without the line and it still wouldn't give me the directions. Just did a route demo and it did speak. I'll have to give it a try again.

    TomTom. Don't care for any of the free apps. Don't overlook all the prior threads on the topic.

    The Maps app + Mapquest app work great for me in terms of free.

    Looking at reviews of TomTom, it seems that TomTom is only activated on one device if you have both iPhone and iPad?

    Waze has done me right. It can't do long distances though.

    The iPod Touch has no GPS chip, so any nav app would have to be able to figure out locations via wi-fi, which isn't going to help if you have no wi-fi around.

    I second Navigon. Of course I got it when the free ones weren't even good and the price was less. But I still think it's worth it. I've tried a bunch, and Navigon is very intuitive.

    I'm using Navigon and works nicely and the new update refreshes the interface for use in iPhone and most importantly it lets you store the maps on your iPhone so that you don't need to rely on data connection, I believe Tomtom offers this feature as well.
