    The one that came with the phone is terrible. It typically stops working half way through the drive. I'd like something that has a button you can push to get a voice audible too in case you miss one. Thx.

    don't have an recommendations since I don't use one. my suggestion would be to go to the play store and try out some of those that have good ratings and see which one you like.

    I use the Google gps app but it makes tons of mistakes. I'll have to check the store for alternatives.

    The maps app or waze are pretty much flawless when in good cell range and even do well outside it if you start the trip in range.

    GPS test is great but doesn't do navigation.
