I just tried the trial version of TeleNav and it works very well. Even within an area where I have known mobile service issues.
With that said, I won’t be paying $10/month for this. (I already have three Garmin devices.) Google maps works well enough for those rare occasions that I don't have my GPS with me.
If they offered the software/service for a one-time fee of no more than $50, I would consider that.
