Default Best Offline Navigation for Nexus 7?

The topic of offline navigation has been discussed before. However with the Nexus 7 and JB, what offline app provides the quickest, accurate, and full featured navigation?

-Copilot
-Sygic
-Navfree
-Other????

I'm trying to decide which one to spend my money on only ONCE. I know google maps has offline cache, but there's still no searching for POI and naviagation.

I like Sygic. Navfree i could never get it to search without having some form of data. Navigon is supposed to be good too.

The built in navigation works great! I used it a couple times this weekend to test it out.

Default Sygic

I use Sygic myself! I love it! It's great because when you purchase a map pack like North America for example you can download by state so you can save space and download only the places you need! Plus you can import POIs from various websites which is nice! Also the voice nav doesn't sound robotic, I have mine set to British English and it sounds like a real person!

I cannot get Navigon to load on my Nexus 7. The PS claimed it is not compatible with device. What gives?

Ditto, did you side load it or restore from TB?

Google Maps w/offline data cached for areas your in. you can get a hell of alot of map area saved offline. still the best imo.
edit: sorry, realized you mentioned POI, navigation does work fine though w/offline gmaps

Unless you can't start navigation where you have a data signal. Then you have a map and your location on it, no navigation.
