Navigation options for the iPhone?
details
My wife switched from the OG Droid to the iPhone 4 a couple months back. The biggest thing she's missing is Google Maps + Navigation. The maps software built into iOS is ok but only when we need simple walking directions or just quick look up. I know there are app options but the cost of some make think twice about trying them out.
Has anyone used any of the paid options and if so what were your impressions?

Who makes the most usable and innovative GPS?
details
Currently, I'm using a MOTONAV TN765t. It's actually pretty good in most respects -- maps look great (clear type, doesn't look like an NES video game like Garmin), fast routing, large screen, and all. Also, it has an outstanding lane assist feature so I'm never in the wrong lane or caught scrambling. However the live traffic is hit or miss, especially in San Francisco, voice recognition is abysmal and text entry is painfully slow. When looking for a new one, there... Read more →

Hey,
details
I got one of these second hand today but unfortunately, no box, cable or manual. Now the manual I got off the Garmin website not a problem, but what I was hoping people could help me with is, what cable is best to get for this, and where from? I live in the UK, so amazon.co.uk and ebay.co.uk if you're gonna suggest them ;). I assume it's going to have to be a USB cable, so can anyone recommend software I can use with the eTrex Legend and the USB cable, Windows as well as Mac if anyone...

What is your opinion on Juction View?
details
A lot of the Garmin models have Lane Assist (showing which lane you need to be instead of general "keep left"), but only a few Garmin models have Junction View (simulated highway signs showing which exit to take). To those of you who has used Junction View on the 1390T, what do you think of Junction View in real use? I've read on one of the reviews that it was annoying because there is no way to disable the feature. On all the marketing materials, junction view is shown as taking... Read more →

Touch screen blues?
details
This is my first standalone GPS unit I've actually owned. Anyone else having trouble with an unresponsive/inaccurate touch screen? It's much more accurate when I use the erase-end of a pencil, but hopeless using my pointer finger. Thoughts? Fixes?

Taking longer to find Satellites...
details
Just recently, my nuvi 200W has been taking a long time to find GPS satellites. It used to take no more than 2 minutes waiting still, but now it takes at least 7 to 10 minutes to find them. I've had no problems with it until now, and I've been using it for at least 2 years now. Anything, stopping short of buying a new one or a used one, I can do?

Powering up
details
I have had the Garmin for about a month. Seems to work fine until the other day it would not power up unless I removed one of the batteries and reinstalled it. Most of the time this works but sometimes I have to repeat the battery remove install a couple time. Now I need to have it powered to connect USB to the Mac. Just wondering if anyone else is having a similar problem?

Does this baby work in Canada?
details
Does anyone know if the generally available commercial version of the Garmin Nuvi 200W works in Canada? Do you have to buy/download maps for Canada? Leaving tomorrow morning for trip and need quick response for GDGT community. Thanks in advance.

My Garmin needs an old priest and a young priest...
details
Does anyone else ever get the occasional glitch with this model where it will suddenly start spouting gibberish that sounds a little bit like it's become possessed instead of reading the proper street names and directions? It's usually fixable with a quick mute/unmute or reboot, but it was really unnerving the first time it happened.

How to reset the GPS to the original maps
details
I have the gps but I don't have the original software anymore (don't know where I place it) and my kid erased all the info when it was connected to the pc. So I need to download the original software / maps. Any help.???? From the Garmin web page I can't dowload it since it says I have to pay again for the original maps and it costs $99 USD
