I have a built in unit in my car and that's by far the best. However, my Garmin 2620 is great too and I use that most often when I travel.

Now I have used the TeleNav system around here in Columbus, Ohio and it's fine. Very fast, accurate and outside perhaps a few better routes being available it's selected good stuff and worked fine.

I'm heading out on another 1 week road trip to the east coast on Monday and will use my Garmin as usual, but will run my TeleNav on the BB8800 side by side for kicks to see how she does.

I do see it's benefit in downtown city areas though as the Garmin units will lose signal if buildings like in Chicago or NYC are around. I don't think I'll have that problem with a cell phone system.

Another nice thing / (potential) of TeleNav and my BB8800 would be that while I may still use my 2620 on the initial drive out to where I'm going, if the cell works good, I'll use it for my calls during the day so as not to have to lug around another piece of equipment.

My updates will be coming soon.
