Please do not post questions in the general section - use Q&A instead.
To your problem. I use navigator with open source maps and there's no problem at all. You might give it a try

I also find this with Google maps, do you also get your location arrow spinning around? As if it doesn't know which way you're facing? Or sometimes says you're going down a road sideways?

Actually I am totally agree that Google is getting worse on
The android devices but you just try the new Google maps on iPhone and you will see how smooth it is after using a lot of custom roms and research I found the solution the problem is my gps chip which is not strong enough to handle google maps but works fine with sygic
Guys the only way to fixed
Is buy an EXTERNAL GPS WHICH IS CONNECT VIA BLUETOOTH
I bought qstarz xt works fine but there are more option you can choose
