    A friend of mine uses Aura GPS navigation on his Atrix. I looked at it on his Atrix and it looked very good with 3D maps. It has Canadian maps.

    The program is free. They charge for the maps but I believe that there is a 7 day trial of the maps.

    See above. I am using CoPilot Live 8 and it works great on my Galaxy Tab, especially with the car dock. Just search CoPilot in the Marketplace.

    What do you mean by "alot of data!"? I've found Google Maps to be rather lightweight on data usage.

    That sounds more like Waze, I have CoPilot and I haven't seen any place to submit data like Waze does. CoPilot is European so that may be an excuse for less than accurate maps but I was on I-77 in the middle of VA and did not have 3G. I thought there was coverage along all Interstates. Some map is way better than no map. IMHO

    Thanks for all the input guys. I see they released navigon for android for USA and canada...its 50 bucks though...I had it for iphone and it was great but based on what all u guys are saying, Im thinking co-pilot might be the way to go then.

    For those with access to the Amazon appstore, today's freebie is something called Gaia GPS. It normally goes for $10.

    Not true ALK doesn't use any of the major mapping company's like the rest do. Though they do use them in different countries.

    Co-Pilot does suck, I have a courier company!
    Today a group of leading venture capitalists published an open letter to the FCC calling on them to prevent what they say would be the end of net neutrality and a crippling blow to young startups.
    No Google, say it ain't (or wouldn't of been ) so! ATT and Verizon would have killed their own cash cow.

    IMO, Navigon is now king of the Android hill for mapping! Garmin bought them and will be updating the UI soon.

    Android Market has it too. Though not free. But take a look at the maps. It is more for geographical survey type stuff than it is driving.
