Just being honest here, I use "MapQuest" for my iPhone and it seems to get the job done every time, but Navigon has gotten awesome reviews. I'm wondering if it's actually worth buying vs the free MapQuest.

i have that app, its okay. i dont use it as much. what i like is that, you can use "google" which is built into the app and look up whatever you need and it will show up the address. instead of going on safari to get the address. only thing i cant figure out is how to make it show what spots you need to take, ie;

1. turn left on jackson ave.
2. right onto garvey ave.

etc etc

edit; lol nevermind got it, it was in options :)

tried the TomTom app out and a few things that i noticed:

pros:
-it has a music button on the top left screen so if you listening to music while using TomTom, you can click on that bottom and skip/rewind/pause a song
-it is very colorful

cons:
the app takes up the WHOLE screen meaning you do not see your title bar or whatever that thing is called. (where it displays Signal strength, time and battery %) not really a big deal but eh..

only used the app once so far.

Navigon is the ish, I probably use it all the time now because of the iPod integration.
