Are there good, inexpensive GPS apps for the iPhone 4? I'm interested in an app that will give directions to a specific address, like a Garmin GPS in a car. If there are apps you guys use and trust, please advise. Thanks in advance.

Tom Tom is really the best of the bunch to be honest, but not cheap of course, but then the best never is.

Yeah, none of the GPS apps are very cheap. If you want something passable, you can just use the Google Maps app that comes with the iPhone.

I would agree that if you're willing to pay, I'd recommend TomTom.

Motion-x GPS Drive is $.99 - but the turn by turn costs $3/month or $20/year.

MotionX GPS Drive for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

I bought the Tom Tom app when it was on sale for $35 - which has turn by turn built in.
TomTom U.S. & Canada for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store
Looks like it is back up to $50. There is a $20/year charge for traffic info.

The Motion GPS is nice if you use GPS navigation infrequently - because you can pay for it monthly.

If you really need a free GPS, use Waze. It uses open source maps that you can edit online. Sometimes it's directions are really bad, but it will generally get you there.

Actually a shame you are US based as there is a new app called Navfree GPS.
It may be that there is a US version though. Worth a search of the App store for certain, it got good reviews on a tech show here.

I like Navigon! There's voice instructions and it tells you turn by turn.

Co-Pilot is the best of the low-priced offerings out there. It's not quite on-par with a good standalone GPS, and it doesn't hold a candle to Google Navigation on Android, but it'll get you to where you're going.

The only hang up I had with it is that it didn't warn me about a traffic circle in Phoenix.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Agreed I have Nav Free and it works very well.

It doesn't speak the directions but then again it doesn't cost any money and is accurate.

No, it's totally free, beware though, the latest update has bought in ads, and no one likes it now. Try and find an older version if you can.

NAVMII 100% is better than Tomtom (we want your money tld)
i have the paid version which with speed cameras is less than a £5 !! fantastic routing and
very fast start up

walks all over TT for the money . I have also use the french maps and they work fine

no data us which also makes it a bargain

Tomtom is far too greedy.
