I would never ever rely solely on a Smartphone for navigation; but to answer the immediate question I use a dedicated GPS Garmin unit . I think far more importantly it's telling that not one comment here made any mention whatsoever of implementing real live paper maps along with a compass.............which I believe is an enlightening segway to the "Lost in the Back Country" posting.
