    So I'm going to be starting a new job in a few weeks that requires alot of travel and driving out of state. I'm looking for an app similar to a Garmin or TomTom style GPS Navigation system. I've browsed through the app store and can't really find anything that looks like what I want. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    i dont think so, but Maps has written directions tho.
    probably in FW 3.0, they might imply it.

    G-Maps U.S. is the closest you will get to turn-by-turn navigation. Works pretty good. It has all the maps stored locally on the phone so no data needed (Almost a gig for the east.) all you need is a GPS signal.

    So far there are only two versions US west and US east. Its not as good as using a garmin but it gets the job done.
