    I'm going to Chicago next week, and there are about 15 places on a list I plan to visit. Is there an app than allows me to enter locations, and have them pin pointed on a map??? I want to be able to use GPS with it. Thanks

    By "GPS" you mean GPS-based navigation with directions and voice prompts? GPS itself is a fairly generic term so be careful just throwing it about.

    You want all 15 destinations pinpointed at once? If not, Google Maps will definitely do this.

    Actually, even with Google Maps you could probably make a custom map via Google Maps on your PC (make sure you're logged into the same Google account that you use on your device) with all 15 destinations and pull it up on your device via Layers.

    Yes, I still am looking for a app to let me pinpoint all my destinations at once.

    I think (but I'm not sure) that Copilot will show all the places on a map, and will even optimize their order to minimize total travel time.

    If you find all the places in Google Maps and star them, it will display all the stars on the map at once.

    I know Garmin can do that. It even sort the 15 destinations so that your total travel time will be the least. That is also the reason I still hold the android phone buying decision. I can do that with my Garmin XT running on my Winmobile HTC HD.

    Is there a link/resource you can point me to that explains how the native turn-by-turn GPS guidance on Droid and 2.1+ (I think) is different than simply using Google Maps? I am 99.9% certain it is a true turn-by-turn navigation program, no different than Garmin etc, but I don't want to get my hopes up for a true built-in ]free voice navigation program, and end up being disappointed.
