MotionX GPS and GPS Kit are 2 that I like for topos and being deep in the bush, recording tracks. They cache maps of your choice (many to choose from), easy to save and share waypoints and tracks, and both have a "real time" location share feature (need cell signal). They do not have turn-by-turn navigation.

I use Navigon for my turn-by-turn GPS app...all of N. America on my phone.

Did you try the Montana?
I can't imagine even ONE feature or task that I wish I had that a standalone GPS could possibly offer me.

Define "decent map"...?
