    Besides Garmin, I noticed a # of navigation apps available. I plan on using my phone rather than a gps. . .I would appreciate any suggestions on which app to go with ?

    thx

    I only use it as a back up, but the one it comes with seems to work fine for me.

    MotionX GPS Drive. I use this on my iPhone for business trip navigation and as a back-up on the bike. Works great.

    +1 on the Navigon app.
    A big plus is the fact that the maps are stored on your phone. You can also only have the maps of the
    states you want. Takes up a lot less space that way.
    Look and/or wait for a sale. I got mine for $20 off normal price. This time of year is a good time for it
    to be on sale.

    I highly recommend MotionX-GPS

    - Easy to record tracks
    - Good maps
    - Share your trip afterwards
