Motion X GPS.
Only for iPhone, which is a bummer.
We had a GPS go down on a 4 day dual sport route, and Motion X GPS was very helpful. We emailed the GPX files to the phone, opened the files, and went on our way.
Even when the GPS started working again, we still used Motion X GPS to look around and do our homework when we stopped.

I use CoPilot on my iPhone because it loads the maps ON your phone so you never rely on a cell signal to update.

I use that on my Android too, it's nice. The only thing is that the free version doesn't do turn by turn navigation (you have to constantly refresh the screen). The cost is fair, though; and if you don't need it often you can buy turn by turn for a month for like $1. The perpetual license is only like $10 or $20 though - well worth it IMO.

Yeah I bought it years ago, seems like I paid $20 for it? Well worth it, it does everything you need even if you don't have a cell signal and it does do turn by turn in the full on version...
