I just use the free sat nav on my windows phone. Doesn't have some annoying voice giving me directions but then I rarely need a sat nav so perhaps am not the best user. My cousin uses it on his phone and doesn't often bother with the sat nav.
Windows one is much improved since the Mango update.
I'm happy that my phone uses the same satellites that a sat nav does. The only potential issue I can see is that it uses the internet to download the Bing maps as it goes, but I zoom in to the area in advance if its a potential blackspot (e.g. If walking and unsure) and it caches some ready so not a problem. And there are free/purchasable maps you can download if you're really bothered (plus I get better battery life than the Tom Tom I was originally given but never used more than once.
