    TexasCowGirl,

    Yeap, you can even have voice turn-by-turn directions!

    Check out the 30-day free trial of TeleNav, and Garmin.

    I personally prefer TeleNav, even though I have a Garmin GPS. My Garmin is so big, that it is so much easier to just use my 8820, and then not have to worry about it being stolen from my car.

    TeleNav costs either $99/year, or $9.99/month, but well worth it! I love it.

    You should also get Google Maps so you can see an overhead satilite view any time, and both that and TeleNav (or Garmin) can also just track/map your location as you drive.

    I'd also get Infospace, and Goog-411.

    Using Google Maps / BB Maps / Nav4All and other 'free' navigation does cost money because it uses your data plan. What it does not cost is an annual subscription. So as long as you do not exceed your data plan allowance there is no further charge - exceed your allowance and you will be charged by your service provider.

    Google maps is particularly data hungry IMO - specially if you use the satellite view option.
