Re: 2610 died need new GPS
After using the Navigation app on my 'Droid Incredible, I'm not sure I would ever purchase another GPS unit (I currently have the BMW Nav III on the bike and a factory system on my 2011 Ford Edge). The 'Droid app has voice activation, so I just speak the destination into the phone and voila, it takes me right to it. If I don't have the address, I just speak the name of the business and the city. It gives me turn by turn instructions both verbally and on the screen. Honestly, it works as good or better than any other GPS system I have ever had and is probably even simpler and quicker to use. Since I basically always carry my phone with me, an additional GPS just seems like a redundant expense. I'm not familiar with the iphone Nav app, but I'm guessing it is similarly easy to use. Gotta love those smart phones!
Just my .02 worth.
