Default What iPhone Map App?

What map app are you guys using on the iPhone? When Apple's map app bombed I started using Waze. I use it about 80% of the time and the Google map app the rest of the time

What about you guys?

I just started using Waze on my Andriod and like it so far. Google maps is great but their offline maps cannot be used for routing without cell service when you start the route. I used Navigon (iphone & droid) and am very happy with it when there is no service but have never updated it as the new updates have screwed it up. Check out MotionXGPS and MotionXDrive, they are both pretty popular last time I checked.

Motion X GPS Drive. The free trial or .99 trial doesn't do the 9.99 annual app justice. It's awesome. Allows you to get destinations from your contacts, access music via Bluetooth so you can have your iTunes or pandora, then pauses for directions, then back to music.

Are there any completely off-line free map apps with GPS/nav for these Apple devices (that work with no cell signal/data, like there are for Android devices)?

Apple Maps. I ignored the hysterics about it because it has always worked well for me.

Navigon is completely offline except for traffic. Not free but worth it.

I like waze and inrix for traffic. However, Blackberry traffic has them BEAT. I wish someone would come up with a app like blackberry traffic. Whatever feed it runs on is superb. All I know is when traffic gets bad you refresh and you are out of the mess.
