I'm quite impressed by this...not for the gps functioning, but by the clever implementation of using the cell phone as a pseudo gps and the ability to present [apparently] useful map displays and turn-by-turn voice directions, all the while being tied in to the cellphone network and a-burnin' up those minutes.


I can imagine my wife liking this; she tends to pooh-pooh the gps gadgetry until she's lost, at which times her appreciation rises considerably (actually, that's too harsh; she's now a convert). Selective on-demand gps services may have a market.


It's hard to know just how well it works until one sees it in action, but this should make Garmin and Sprint pretty happy. I'm sure most of us will stick to our one-trick ponies for the time being.
