If you are going to have one navigation app, this one is it. Navigon wins for best feature set and is updated regularly. The interface is cleaner than most and a recent update added a Google maps search for POIs right into the app. It's the only major brand navigation app to offer real time traffic which automatically rereoutes you to avoid congestion. It's an extra $19.99 for the real time traffic feature (in-app purchase), so make sure you factor that into the price. The MobileNavigator app also fixed the one huge drawback it had and added turn list accessibility via an app update. You can't go wrong with Navigon, even if the UI is not as iPhone-y as Magellan's RoadMate.
