Best GPS software to use with our new feature?

What software works the best with windows mobile? Ive used Gmaps, and live which work relatively well but im wondering the benefits of using anything a bit more robust.

TomTom?
Alturion?

whats the best?

So far I am sticking with Sprint Nav, aside from the initial satellite find on a cold boot, it seems to be the quickest, uses the least memory (iGo is very good for a maps-stored-locally setup, but seems to have iffy compatability with our new GPS feature), and has actual voice guidance (Turn left on 8 Mile Road instead of Turn left in 300 Meters).

It has also found every POI I have thrown at it, even some my TomTom One does not have.

TomTOm just worked fine on a trip to the grocery store. It doesnt have text recognitiion to name of the street names but otherwise does a good job.

Is there a standalone cab for the sprint navigation ro do I need to let it run all its sprint customizations on a hard reset? I usually leave the bloatware out of it but if I have to put it all on there to get sprint nav I guess I can live with it.

I asked about a cab for the Sprint Nav in the thread for the firmware, but never got a response. So for now I am just leaving the Sprint stuff on until someone finds a way to make it a Cab.

Iguidance is decent. The maps are a more up to date in my area(both current up to date maps) on iguidance vs tomtom. Iguidance has text to voice which is nice and actually says the street names. It is hard to read the upcomming street names on the maps and the streets are skinny. I like tomtom much better because of the ease of use with the big buttons and the qwerty keyboard to type on. The display is also much better on tomtom compared to iguidance.
