    I like the Google navigation but it doesn't have many options ...like the speed limit I am traveling & etc. Sprint Navigation by TeleNav is decent you can sync it with your computer & send info right to GPS. But it is slow as hell compared to the Google navigation.

    Is there anything else you guys would recommend?

    Google nav is my favorite but i like the Sprint nav if i have to do any highway driving for long periods of time. The Sprint nav has constant traffic updates.

    I have CoPilot on my phone but use Google Nav more frequently. CoPilot has a lot of options though and I like the fact that I can set it to turn the backlight off unless I'm near a turn (you can also do this with Sprint Nav) and it stores the maps on your storage card so you don't need a network connection. It costs $29.99 though. Not a bad price for what it does. Just install it from the market and try it out for 24 hours. If it doesn't do what you want for the price just uninstall and refund.

    Honestly...Google Nav would be better if the voice wasn't so robotic. I actually prefer Sprint Navigation right now. Would completely jump over to Google Nav once it's a bit more mature.

    I would use the google nav more if it can be used in landscape. The sprint one actually got me lost a few times.

    I like Sprint Nav. It's easier to speak a navigation. Maybe I haven't figured out the quick way on google maps yet.

    The voice search function is MUCH better in Google than with Sprint Nav.
    I was with my wife in the car and we both have EVOs and trying to navigate to the same thing and we used the voice search function on each app....the Google results were MUCH better...in fact, mine found about 9 locations and hers none. We were searching Quest Diagnostics.

    With that said, all of the other comments on here apply. the robotic voice on google is pretty annoying and sometimes even hard to understand due to the unnatural cadence.
