Anyway, irrespective of whether it uses Garmin software or not, I'm interested to know whether a BB makes a good vehicle navigation system or whether it's better to get a dedicated unit. I'm also interested to know whether dynamically loaded maps works reliably and is cost effective.

It would seem that the BB 8800 has the potential to replace a dedicated unit, and that is what I'm really trying to verify.
Hello? Why didn't you get navigation for your BMW? BMW has very detailed maps and excellent IMO.

Oh, and btw, I'm a HUGE fan of Garmin!
