    GPS is nice

    It's late and I don't how many will read this but, I have to say this phone - along with the Android OS - is impressing me everyday. I used the GPS today, to get back home from a job and, it was awesome!

    The clients address didn't show up on my regular GPS and, I had a little difficulty finding their home. On the way back, I deciding to try the GPS on the phone with Google maps. It was really nice, I just spoke my address into the voice recognition feature and, pressed navigate. It worked just as good - if not better - than my regular GPS. It even had pictures of my street as I approached my home.

    I just have to remember to bring my USB charger the next time because, it drained my battery down pretty good but, not that much.

    I'm ready for the OTA update.

    Man I can't wait until some kind of car dock comes out. I love the maps too and I've got an auxiliary input cord for my stereo ready to go into the headphone jack. I just need a way to mount it and hopefully power it too but I could always use a usb car charger for that.

    I had to return my son to Ft. Bragg, NC from Ohio this past weekend and gave the GPS a true workout. It was excellent. I lost GPS signal going through two long tunnels, but each time as soon as I emerged from the tunnel, it locked right back on and never lost a step.

    I was thoroughly impressed!

    I'm so jealous of you guys. They need to get this working in UK. How can they let Nokia get a 1 up on them like that? It can't be that difficult for them.

    its not difficult for them, just that they would have to pay for it in EU, whereas in America they own the data on the maps, or something like that anyways

    they shouldn't be stingy with the cheque book like that. If nokia can do it, they can.
