Re: Need a GPS with these features The problem with downloading surrounding areas to the phone... 1) will you always know you won't have phone service in that area and 2) what a _huge_ pain! When I use my phone for navagation I'm in the vehicle driving. I'm not at home downloading maps so I will have them just in case my data connection is not good.
I still use my stand alone GPS unit all of ther time. I also have a few apps, such as iGo and Navagon installed on my phone. I get lost a lot.
