    Is there a better navigation system than the stock Google Navigation? I have used it 4 times and have only been directed to my location once. I came from using VZ navigator and that was dead on every time. Any apps out there free or paid?

    Thanks!

    Not to my knowledge, and Google has worked absolutely great for me. Never had any problems with it.

    Interesting... I did see a thread in the applications section that talked about a different (paid) app. But for what its worth, NAV has been nearly perfect for me was well. I did have an issue in the sticks of NM when I didnt have any data service, and lost the map. Since NAV doesnt have the maps preloaded, you still have to have data service.

    The problem I'm having is it is making me drive in circles in a 4 block radius of my destination.

    google nav works better than my garmin nuvi 205w. if it could cache maps and satalite, even just the steet maps that are within 50 miles of your location it would be near perfect imho

    The Google nav has worked great for me. I use to use TeleNav which is excellent, I like it better than VZ but is is $10 / month.

    Have used it several times and it has worked for me perfectly. I have used it on a couple calls (firefighter) and being able to say the address and it guides me right to the door without the map, saves us time!!!:icon_ devil:

    its works good for me about 98% of the time...but one thing i did noticed is the lack of alternative routes. I tried it many time it keeps telling me there arent any alternative routes even though there are. When i was in Utah last week..it navigate me in circles also which cause me to close the navi and called the place and asked for direction. so it kinda fail me twice in Utah. =/
