    Just found an app called Waze, it's available for Apple, Android and others. Seems like it may be a good GPS app that's free :supergrin: I used Mapquest but since the latest update I have not liked it at all. This app gets good reviews so I'm going to give it a try :wavey:

    I've used Waze & Mapquest. I wasn't real impressed with map quest.

    If you're on iPhone, iOS 6 is going to have a totally revamped maps app built in. Turn by turn directions as well!

    TeleNav and Google Maps has always worked well for me on my Bionic.

    +1 to Google Navigation! Super easy with spoken directions. Updated by Google :)

    The first time I used the google app my buddy and I were going to the Knob Creek shoot. It took us right to the parking lot. I was impressed. I'm not sure that IPhones have that app.

    It's not free turn by turn and I ended spending a couple bucks per year on it but it is GPS Drive on my iPhone. I use it EVERYWHERE. I am a tightwad on money too but this is definently a good investment in my opinion.

    I have wondered a few times -

    Free "download" and free to USE IT are not always the same thing.

    It means you can buy upgrades to the app.

    One of the better navigation apps might allow 30 days of full use, then turns the spoken turn-by-turn off unless you subscribe for like $12/year or $1.99/month.

    So its a free TRIAL... LOVE the lil "catches"..

    Next question, and I LOVE when companies do this one... Is it automatic? Meaning you need to tell them NOT to or that you do NOT want the item, other wise its automatically charged to you every month... :upeyes:

    Thank you for the knowledge!!
