WAZE is available for non-jailbroken iPhones and offers turn by turn right now. It consumes less battery than XGPS does on the jailbroken iPhones and is smarter in traffic shaping because it utilizes its own social network by Waze users automatically collecting traffic data as they drive around a given area. This is fed into the Waze servers to dynamically route you to your destination. User entered traffic conditions are also considered. A great app!
And did I mention WAZE is free?

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

Wasn't this supposed to come to iPhone natively or am I on coke? I thought this was a big thing in the past and Apple made some hoopla about it?
Maybe I'm thinking of TomTom..

MotionX GPS Drive. The app is only $0.99 and has inexpensive fees for turn-by-turn directions. I tried Waze a while back and wasn't a fan. Too cartoony and the directions weren't the best. Upon reading reviews of the latest version, perhaps I'll give it another try.21.5" iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core i3 l 15" MacBook Pro 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 l 17" PowerBook 1.67 GHz

I use Navigon myself.... just had problems with two of Apples new iPhones... of course they gave me their so called new ones.. finally after two of them I can use Navigon again and get phone calls... The guys in the Apple store told me that I should not depend on any app like Navigon or Maps that are on the phone so I guess this is another one we should not depend on.... I looked at the guy and said why do we have apps like this then? I used Navigon from Michigan to Oklahoma and had no problems at all....

The free Mapquest app is pretty dang good, but I like the Google Maps interface better. I hope they release this with 4.0 because I think it'll be awesome!

Alittle late but awesome for those who have yet to get a GPS app. I too use Navigon and love the heck out of it(tho my car has Navi in the Pioneer unit lol). Ive also tried G-Maps and XGPS but ill stick with Navigon.

Navigon is amazing. I used it on a 1000 mile trip from missouri to texas and it worked better than my buddies standalone garmin

I haven't run into this issue with Navigon yet, but I was going somewhere on the other side of Houston and used the Maps app for reference and my half hour drive turned into an hour and a half drive because I found myself at a toll bridge with no cash so I had to jackass myself around trying to figure out a way across the river because the Maps app didn't alert me that there was a toll road involved in the directions it gave me.
tl;dr I really hope the turn-by-turn app alerts you if there's a toll road in the directions it gives you otherwise its a no-go for me

Why even mention xGPS? Those of us that remember that junk shouldn't have to relive those darker times. Yikes! Anyhow, free up-to-date traffic and real-time recalculation (assuming data link). This would be great on the iPhone!

Google is not brining it to the iPhone...yet
For those that missed it, Google confirmed they never did state it would come to the iPhone. The article in question got their facts mixed up. I wouldn't get your hopes up for a 4.0 turn by turn Google Maps app. From Google...
“We did not say we would bring it to iPhone, we said to date we’ve had it on Android and that in the future it may come to other platforms but did not confirm this will be coming to iPhone at all.”
Personally I use NAVIGON and never had a problem with it. The only drawback to NAVIGON besides the price is that the maps are not updated OTA. However the good thing is all the map data is stored locally on your device which is nice if you don't have a data signal.
Google Maps is updated OTA (as far as the map data goes) so their maps are fairly accurate and you get most of the world without having to shell out extra cash for different countries. Problem is they don't route the fastest/best possible route. Also there is no automatic re-route that you get with NAVIGON (and TOM TOM). No data signal means no Google Maps.
So there are advantages and drawbacks with each."To unpathed waters, undreamed shores." -- William Shakespeare

Can't beat free! Google and Apple was have issues with eachother. We'll prolly see this when the 4.0 cones out maybe.
