A good navigation app that doesn't require a data connection while navigating is Co-Pilot Live. I think it costs about $10 in the Play Store. It lets you download maps (such as N America or USA) and store them on your phone so no data connection is required. Of course you need to have enough space on your phone to store those maps, USA requires something like 1.2GB.

I use Google Maps website to plan routes then send a link of that route to my phone. When I click on that link it asks what app to open it with and I choose Co-Pilot. Did that with a trip 2 years ago, 4,000 miles thru 8 Western states. The nice thing was that when my son would drive, he could bring the same route up on his phone. Worked great.

Co-Pilot has a free app as well but it doesn't do voice guidance.
My phone only has a 4g SD and 2GB of internal memory.

If I get a bigger SD card, can I move it to the card?

Most of the GPS apps I've tried, won't let you move it.
Yes, Co-Pilot allows you to save the map data to your SD card.

Thanks - I'll try this one too when I get a bigger SD card.

I used it this am and it is. Great.

I even changed the route and it followed me and still gave proper voice instructions.

I'm not sure why all the bad reviews but i'm happy with it.

Btw- l even plugged in my sister's address ln NYC and it mapped out the route.

It is a good app. I use it often as well. As I said, it's got 1 weak spot and that is that it requires you to have a cellular connection. If you happen to navigate somewhere where there's no cell towers it will no longer be able to update the map so it can show you where you are.

Ill try to stay away from any Al-Qaida areas.

Seriously though, the Navigator App seems to be all I need.

Since it was able to plot a map from me in Orange County, Ca. to her in Monsey, N.Y., I should be fine.

If you actually tried to navigate that route all the way to New York, I'm sure there would be a certain amount of times where it would not have map data, especially if you ever strayed from major highways.

When we took a trip a few years back thru 8 western states, there were many places where we lost cell signal.
