Default Good GPS apps?

I no longer have the Metro navigator and I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good GPS with turn by turn directions?

Should... give you turn by turn. just make sure you have the navigation unmuted and the vol up.

Personally i love google navigation, more than the metro navigator.
what i like about metro nav is that it gives u gas prices around u to pick from the cheapest ones.... but thats about it.

yes it does. it works very well
its easy to test turn on gps, if it is not, go into maps and pick a point then get directions, hit the nav button it will open nav and may tell you its a beta, it still works great then it will calculate your route and possibly ask you to download voice but I think the latest one has that included.

As the others have stated, Google Maps has navigation built in. Yes it is voice guided. I tried out the Metro Navigator for a short time, after I got the phone, and decided I like the Google better. The only thing I don't really like about it (and it's just a minor dis-like) is the digitized female voice. I would prefer a real feminine voice for the navigation.

I use the google one, for the voice navigation to work you need the program SpeechSynthesis Data Installer.

Which google will give you a pop up saying if you want to install it the first time you open up the app.

I also use navigon. The best part is it downloads the maps to you phone so you don't need an internet connection top get turn by turn has slot of other nice features too
