    There is none.
    Well, a while back, i think I recall something like gPs4phone, but I dont think thats it.
    Besides, youd need wi-fi.

    You can buy a 3rd party GPS "chip" that plugs into your iPods dock connector.
    This will make it so apps like Google Maps dont need Wi-Fi to access Maps.

    You can use the Google Maps app w/ the GPS chip to get directions and stuff.
    All you need is a windshield mount and you have yourself a TomTom.

    you can buy a 3rd party gps module that connects through the dock port, but you have to install a package from cydia to make it work with other applications.

    Currently, there is only one available.

    That is the link to it. More are coming however, that tap directly into your docking system and charge your iPod/iPhone too. Some newer ones that are coming out also have built in batteries. These are much more expensive however.

    As for applications, xGPS is a great open source application for all your turn by turn needs. There is a way to make Google maps offline by using caches in Cydia. There is also a package in Cydia that allows you to use your custom GPS modules with AppStore applications. That is about all I know...

    Hope this helps.
