Anyone out there using a GPS app on their iPhone? If so, are there any apps I should avoid or that you are happy to recommend?

Thanks Gary  :028: CoPilot was installed on my mobile when I bought it. I was considering upgrading to the 3D voice command version if no one rubbished it or suggested anything better.

I use Tomtom and Waze.
Tomtom is very good and needn't any 3G connection until you need traffic information.

Waze is better on some point, firstly it's a free GPS application. Map are updated regularly because each user can povide improvment to Waze Map. But in order to be fully functionnal, Waze need a 3G connection for map download and also traffic information.
Traffic information are reliable because they are filled by all users who use the tool.

Care about your iphone, if it's used for a too long time in GPS mode, it would shut down automatically, in fact iPhone prevent from temperature damage, and shut down itself if temperature is too hot.

Just don't use the built-in navigation app - especially if you're in Australia  :012:
It's that bad that police have issued a warning about it - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/apples-latest-ios-6-maps-system-is-luring-motorists-into-danger-police-warn/story-e6frf7kx-1226533592620

Rocker66 sorry for the delay.yes it is available for Android (Have it on a Sony Xperia) and it works just fine.If you don't want to pay for it on play store look for application APTOIDE,install it and you can find it from there for free.
