Default [Q] Best 3rd party GPS for Radar?

I've tried Telenav - not impressed, at least not enough to pay $10 a month.

Can anyone recommend any 3rd party GPS apps that are known to work with the Radar? I've heard Navigon doesn't work because of the lack of compass, but I don't have first hand experience so that statement could be wrong.

Any feedback is appreciated!

Default try this....

Hi there...
Try "Turn by Turn" Navigation.
It's free/trial, as long as you don't ask for directions...

Navigon works great and well worth the price. Plus the new version lets you download only the maps you need, taking up only about ~300mb of space.

Because of gps tracking, a compass isn't really needed. The map rotates with each turn I make.

Is gmaps pro worth buying? I came from an hd2 with android to this phone and not being able to find bus directions is a pain

Does anyone know of a navigon trial version. Had copilot7 on my touch hd, stupidly assumed I could install on radar...sadly mango is not best supported os, and most devs now concentrating on iPhone and android....grrrr. Still an iPhone hater and love windows, so need a new choice. Also heard that navigon doesn't work on radar coz of lack of compass, but is shown as supported on navigon website...just want to check it out b4 I commit to buy, as UK version is staggering 72 :-/

Hmm, weird. I thought I replied to this thread already but I guess not, hah.

I can confirm that Navigon works wonderfully on the Radar, even without the digital compass. It tracks awesomely and quickly and when I turn in the car, it's able to detect via gps that I'm turning as well, and the navigation is seamless.

I also believe there is a Navigon trial, but it's only a simulation to play with routes and stuff and you can't actually use it to navigate.

Have tried and own Garmin.. in some ways wish I would have gone with Navigon, but Garmin has been doing some updates..... aside from letting me download maps while on my wifi... The app is fantastic. The new update is slick. It looks to me like Garmin is developing on WP7 and that is a huge bonus... not just a token effort then poof they are gone like Intuit.
HD2 WM 6.5/Andriod-WP7- Sold on CL ---- HD7- Custom Roms then I small bricked it- gave to a friend still in use -- HTC Radar- smashed screen at the gym- sold replacement on eBay--- Lumia 900-- Smashed screen at home (2012 I had some phone bad luck) fixed screen unocked and gave to wife--- Lumia 900 sold on eBay (did not sell at all on CL-- offers were $100 less than what sold for on eBay) Lumia 920!! This is the phone I have been waiting for, a real camera and a damn good phone!.

Thumbs up HTC Locations is now a full GPS app

Ok guys, here's some fresh news: HTC Locations was upgraded today to a full GPS navigation software. It includes downloadable maps of all countries, offline routing, turn by turn voice navigation in any language, speed cameras, points of interest, etc. So go ahead, upgrade and give it a try!

Having used all available GPS software (navigon, nokia drive, turn by turn, garmin etc) i must say i'm impressed with this one. This is the only GPS navigation software so far that planned some known routes exactly as i would plan them. I checked it out with Data turned off and it seems to plan routes and navigate 100% offline.

The only thing that seems to be missing, at least in my language, is Text To Speech. Also, voice navigation and speed cameras are subscription-based. They will be free for the first month and then you will be required to purchase them.
