Garmin Mobile certainly feels faster than TeleNav. One shortcoming of GM for AT&T devices only is that there is no auto update feature. You have to either call in to Garmin CS in order to have a representative send you the latest JAD w/ new activation code, or hope that the OTA trial link represents the latest version. Another annoyance (as with nearly all other GPS programs and devices) is that if the app is not kept in the background and initialized, the "do not manipulate while driving" warning page is displayed and must be confirmed before the navigation UI is encountered. What is great about GM is that it works with all of the unofficial and beta operating systems I have thrown at it. Stability and speed is why I have chosen Garmin Mobile over TeleNav for my navigation needs.
