iPhone Navigation with MotionX and Bing Maps

Don’t like the native iPhone navigation application? Good. :) How about a little something with Bing Maps? Fullpower just had their iPhone application, MotionX-GPS Drive released into the Apple iStore and it is smokin’ hot!

The application has a ton of hot features including a base map using Bing Maps for visualizing location information. Check out the full list of navigational features:
