I bought and app called Kauai Revealed for a trip to Hawaii and it worked beautifully on the dirt roads way up on the volcano. The author had GPSed the roads and we could follow the blue dot to know exactly where to turn etc. With the right app and charts and a waterproof case you could use the phone to navigate. The downside is the drain on the small battery.
