Apps for Less: Sygic Mobile Maps US - Turn-By-Turn Voice Guided GPS Navigation

Working off a tip/reminder from antonioj (thanks!), I scurried off to the TeleAtlas booth at the close day here at MWC to visit Sygic, a company that makes (you guessed it) downloadable GPS apps for smartphones and PDAs.
