Currently using WAZE, and although I like it, I do notice it is not super polished, and gives me wrong turns from time to time.
What are other users using for GPS on their IPhone? I am a city driver (Chicago).

I prefer the TomTom app.

From the three iPhone GPS app that I reviewed (MetroView, Sygic Aura, and NAVIGON MobileNavigator), I'd pick the NAVIGON - the voice pronounciation is not weird, bunch of good features that we'd actually use, active lane assistant, and a few others)

Haven't tried TomTom yet on the iPhone so I can't give my opinion on that one.

Try Navfree, I use it in Australia and it's pretty good, they have a version for the US

I've used Co Pilot on WinMo and Android and have to say it's great. I can't imagine the iPhone version being to dissimilar.

The best? Sygic Aura!

I have Sygic Aura BeNeLux and it's a really nice GPS, better than TomTom or Ndrive (these two are the ones I have tested already, can't tell you more about other GPS software for the iPhone).

Have a look at the Sygic website for more info and watch some vids on YouTube or read some reviews: you really want this GPS and nothing else.

Also, you can use it to go for a walk as well, it's very nice to walk through Brussels with 3D buildings around me :)
