From what I remember, there aren't any free voice nav programs.
Free maps programs, but none with voice.

Moved to more appropriate section.

Best is a personal decision. Please look at the yellow sticky at the top of the GPS and Maps section (this section) for reviews on most of the available map applications.

Keep in mind that you must have a BB data plan for most of them to work.

There are definitely free voice nav apps. I personally wouldn't recommend any of them. Check out the "All Known GPS Apps" thread that Dubdub mentioned, try some out and decide for yourself if any of them suit your needs.
