Anything that stops apps and the OS caning your battery life are a good call :-P

Found a few more favorites:
Sygic for GPS. Using free one right now, but its trial and you have to pay for full thing. It's better that Pilot.
Maps, yeah that's what its called. It allows you to save maps for offline viewing. Only program that caches Google maps from what I could find. Very god when you roaming.
Locus for maps. Better than Maps above. Gives you a lot of functionality, but does not have Google maps.

I believe HTC Locations does the same thing (if you're on an HTC phone).
