7 Useful GPS Apps for Your iPhone
•    MotionX GPS Drive - $0.99
One of the most popular and highly-rated GPS app for the iPhone, MotionX GPS Drive is noted for its traffic-based and multi-stop routing. The maps are frequently updated, so you can use them confidently even in the busiest of cities. This app comes at an excellent price for what it offers.

•    TomTom for iPhone - $59.99 (US & Canada)
This app is provided by top personal navigation devices maker TomTom, which like many other similar companies, has in the last years created their own iPhone GPS apps. Some of the interesting features include the ability to quickly navigate to a Facebook place or event, fixed speed cameras, and destination sharing. Definitely worth checking out.

•    GPS by TeleNav - $2.99/month
A voice-assisted turn-by-turn GPS app with loads of features, GPS by TeleNav comes with Facebook integration, and excellent auto rerouting features.

In your turn, you’ll have others’ reports to warn you. The maps are good, the rerouting fast, and the navigation screen clean.

•    MapQuest 4 Mobile - Free
Regarded by many as the best free voice-guided GPS app for the iPhone, MapQuest 4 Mobile gives you clear directions that help you reach your destination in time. It comes with a useful find me feature, and with energy saving settings, both of which come in handy when you’re on the road.
