    I was simply looking to know if anyone has thoughts on what current GPS app(s) would suit someone in Canada. Just dont wish to waste the cash on a app that is poorly made, or maps are outdated, ect. Any feedback would be greatly appericated.

    It depends on for what you need it :)
    Turn-by-turn car navigation or off-road navigation with tracking/routing on topographic maps for hiking etc.

    An app for both you'd not get.

    Copilot Live has a Canadian version, and it's on sale until the end of October. Copilot is pretty good about updating maps; they release monthly map updates and have provisions for users to report map errors. Said errors, at least in the US, are generally addressed within 45 days.

    Are you unhappy with Google Maps? It comes with your phone and is free. It has turn by turn navigation as well. Since it downloads maps as you go, it is always up to date.

    I have looked into CoPilot, WisePilot, and Sygic. I am mainly looking for best value for when traveling by car. Just not wanting to throw my money into something that isnt going to benefit traveling (directions/POI). From what I gathered so far, CoPilot is a onetime fee for the basic app, and add-ons are extra. Were as WisePilot is a liences that is vaild for only 2 years before you have to renew. Similar for Sygic. I used to have a hand held GPS from Garmin but was stolen. So instead of buying another one thinking of getting one for my phone. Any other opinions are always welcome.

    I have to agree with that "Google". I have tried Navagon and also CoPilot but still prefer Google Navigation. I am also in Canada, but CoPilot the maps were too outdated and it took me round in circles a few times. Navigon looked very nice and worked well but I still went back to Google Navigation.
    Just my thoughts.
