GPS APP for IPAD

I am using the original IPAD and with a rode trip this month from ontario down through the maritime's looking for opinions on a GPS app for use on my IPAD. I have never owned a GPS to date and am not sure if I will have rogers coverage during the trip so maybe one with preloaded maps that can be used offline if needed. Thanks for any info or assistance, much appreciated.

I use Navigon. Not the cheapest, but very functional. Unfortunately, I am not sure how well it runs (or doesn't run) on the iPad 1 and I believe you need to make sure your iPad has 3G or else it won't have a GPS chip.

I use the TomTom app. Works well and I downloaded it on my sisters iPad 1 with no issues.

I think they could have done more with all the screen space available in the UI but it works fine.

+1 for Navigon. Use it on iPad 1, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. Used to use it on iPhone 3Gs as well. Occasionally has issues pulling addresses from contacts but no major problems.

navigon is currently on sale for $39, so not a bad time to get it.
