Which navigation app do you use on the Nexus? I assume the app could be used for any android phone as well.

I tend to agree with Chef. When it first came out, the iPhone was a great alternative to carrying about the larger iPad, but now there are so many options in that intermediate range around 7" that are much easier to view than the iPhone, and not as bulky as the iPad. Maybe that's the way to go for now.
