Most of the major apps are cross-platform, or you can easily find apps with similar functionality on Android and iPhone. However, there are more free apps available for Android. For example, although Vlingo is cross-platform, the Android version is both free and more fully featured than the iPhone version.
Further, the Android market includes a Transportation category, which makes it easier to find car-related apps. In the iTunes Store, there is a Navigation category, but other automotive apps will be found under either the broad categories of Travel or Utilities.
Slight advantage: Android
