    CarPlay/Apple Maps. I've used all of the 'Big 3' (Google Maps, Apple Maps, and Waze), and while YMMV, Apple Maps has tended to be the most accurate. (That, and for whatever reason, anytime I've used Google Maps, it will occasionally switch from "In 500', turn right onto such-and-such Blvd." to "take the next right." :confused:)

    A lot
    Google Maps and CarPlay for me, however, I’ve learned Google Maps “quickest route” or “shortest route” algorithm will take you a weird route just to save 10 seconds or a 1/10th of a mile rather than maybe an easier stretch or roads.

    I wish it had “easiest route” intelligence.

    Dead reckoning for short distances. Great circle when the need arises.

    I mount my phone on my dash with a Steelie and use Android Auto, so, Google maps. It already knows everything about me and where I want to go so I figured I'd keep using it.

    Function before sparkle.
    NAVIGON or Google Maps for road use, Gaia for trails.

    I usually navigate with my hands on the steering wheel and my eyes on the road. I'll always look up where I'm going BEFORE I start driving, if I've never been there. Otherwise I just remember how to get there.... It's really not that difficult.

    Not a problem in my youth, driving at night under a full moon with the lights off was also fun.
