Try navmii if you have smart phone, free and worked great for us. Doesnt use data, uses gps so just dowload Florida map before you go.

I use an app called here we go which I prefer to navmii.
It does the same thing. Ive downloaded the UK and Florida maps and use it in airplane mode

Is Navmii easy to use
DW gas put it onto her phone and downloaded Florida map
I will buy a holder and charger for hire car
Just don't want to get there and find it's not easy to use

I have used navmii for florida, califronia and france all with no issues. One thing I would do for ease is set up your favourites before you go using the wifi.
the other thing to consider is that you can use google maps as you can download areas for use with no wifi.
Of course you could always use a good old map.
