See, I'm being patient, because HTC Sense is so much better than vanilla Android, and also the updating process is so much more annoying than that of iOS.

google maps & navigation downloads most information so that you can access the maps even when you have no service. i regularly check google maps on the subway in airplane mode...

google navigation is the only one i use. it's never let me down. i was in a rental car that had onstar navigation and it was taking us in circles... google nav on my droid X got us there in no time.

Justin I have the LG Optimus One

Shannon for some reason it takes forever if at all for google maps to load if I leave the data turned off ...i haven't done any serious testing though because usually I just give in and turn the data on

hmm, i had the same problem when i got my new phone too. for me i had to go in on the phone and download a map for that region for it to finally work. now though it works fine. the downloads take forever though, but it could just be the slow wifi here.

I think I figured out a workaround...if I fire up the nav and punch in the address before I leave home, ie when I'm still on my wifi, I guess it downloads those directions locally because then when I leave the house I still have full navigation, even with data turned off. I suppose if I wanted to do an address when already out on the road, I'd have to turn data on for a bit to get that. Sounds logical, but still seems a bit pissy..

got'cha... makes sense.

i have an incredible fear of the day that verizon switches to tiered data plans. i know they're already going to it for 4G, which is the number one reason why i want no part of a 4G phone right now. i'm a data hog.

first thing i'd have to do is get a real sirius/xm subscription, 'cause right now i just have the cheapo internet subscription and use my droid to listen to it. it's about 2-3 minutes delayed, but really.. who cares? i'm just listing to opie & anthony... i don't need it for sprts and stuffs.

Nice. I love almost everything about my HTC phone. Only issue is the battery kinda sucks. Buy a spare.
