Hi, try nav4all.com
I have this and it is very accurate as it uses the built in GPS as opposed to Google maps which uses mobile towers not the GPS.
nav4all is free and uses audio, you can choose which application language and audio language you require.

I agree Nav4all is a great app.. a little querky on the menus but good voice prompts. Would be nice to have it announce the street names not just "turn left soon|", etc.

The latest version of google maps does use gps on my bold and I love the display, speed and the satellite feature. Satellite gets my down to around 3m accuracy in Canada... But no voice prompts unfortunately. And had to find a workaround link to download google maps as the main one says it isn't compatible. But once installed it is working well.

Really wierd because Nav4All finds my position more or less instantly using the where am I function.
Since my original posting yesterday in regards to Google maps being less accurate and newcastlecanuck saying that theres works fine, I decided to really give GM the benefit of the doubt.
I left the app running for about 5 minutes and watched as it went from the usual, within 1700m of position, to12m and then finally to 3m, so I take back what I earlier said. GM does use the built in GPS, just at my end seems to take a while longer to zero in tham nav4all.
