Anyone used the GPS on the Ipad? if so what app do you think is the best.
Depends what your need is, for turn by turn verbal directions I've used the at&t navigator app I also have on my iphone, on my ipad. But otherwise my favorite is just the maps app. It's not perfect, but I've yet to use a GPS app that is, but I like that you can actually view the map while getting directions, instead of the having the whole page taken over with text directions like some apps.
I've used a couple others and didn't like them.
Thank you for your reply.I will check the At&T Navigator out.
For turn by turn get navigon
For just gps get motionx gps HD.
They both work without cell service.
Google nav on the droid was awesome. Loved it. I got something like motion drive HD on the iPad and meh...
It kinda sucks, but supposed be one of the best.
2 apps I miss most from droid is google nav and google directory. Anything comparable to those for the iPad ?
Get the MapQuest iPhone app (works on the iPad natch). It's a real beaut and works perfectly. Best part is, it's still 100% free!

I am very, VERY, satisfied with MOTIONX GPS DRIVE. $2.99.
I have used it on 4 business trips already since getting it a couple of weeks ago, (California, North Dakota, Pennsylvania & Louisiana). I have a Garmin 376c that I use on the Boat, Motorcycle & other Vehicles, that I would take with me. Now, it stays at home and I get buy very well with this app. Works BETTER than advertised.
I have used MOTIONX GPS DRIVE and Co-Pilot HD. Co-pilot HD is superior as a turn by turn nav app.
A bit of a correction for my comment of several hours ago. I just downloaded the update to the MotionX GPS Drive APP. It is significantly improved. The split screen now contains lots of information and is superior in many ways to the Co-Pilot HD setup. I drove around for a while using the update and I am very impressed.
MotionX Drive looks real slick. At $2.99 the price is awesome. Downloading now to try it out. Much better app than MapQuest 4 Mobile!
