    Heck seems you lot can't make up your mind if your phone is any good or not huh.
    Hey My phone stays on my hip "if I pull it out and use it while driving for ANY reason and a Cop sees me I'm booked for using my phone, $300 and 4 demerits, But if I use a GPS not a problem"
    So back to this Google thing, mount the phone on the window mount thing " DO NOT TAKE IT OFF TO ANSWER PHONE use Bluetooth" use this google thing if it not understand you "" learn how to talk properly in google"" type it if you need too and be honest it is quicker than typing it into a Garman any day " I don't own either items so I see this as an outsider and Neil knows I know what am talking about" So you lot need to get more Savy about the units you use coz these days we have the most savy units around.
    So be one with your unit OK.

    Actually the cops in my area are very keen on knowing if you are using the phone to talk, text or something else like watching video or GPS nav. If you're in school zone, you can not use it to talk nor text, GPS nav is fine. Texting is illegal everywhere in my area and they know it when you text vs GPS nav. You have to be pretty good or stupid playing with GPS nav on your phone while holding it. One more things that's not mentioned: all android devices are capacitive screen while dedicated GPS are mostly resistive. Since I have Magellan, Mio, TomTom One and Garmin 775 to compare with, routing/planning is much much better (more options) via NNG. And if you still preferred to use proggy provided by dedicated GPS, you can run them on the android device. I often have Navigon, Garmin Street Pilot and TomTom proggy along with NNG on my android.

    In my dayly work I use my smartphone to find adresses in destination area. It is more usefull, becouse my phone is allays with me. And the time of usage is 15-30 minutes. But if I go to long trip I use my dedicatad car GPS, who is more easy to use and mount on my car.
    So, for the short time I use my smartphone, but in long time I use my car GPS.

    In one of my cars I use dedicated GPS most of the time but with older one I use Nuvi 765 as car does not have a built in unit. With rental cars usually use Nuvi 765 as it has camera alerts.
