Have been using Mapquest FindMe the last week or so and it really doesn't work very well for me. The tower fixes are too broad to get good directions, updating seems slow, and you have to manually switch to GPS mode if you "think" you can get satellites. Driving directions don't update as you travel. Even getting fixes (tower-based) sometimes required a reset to wake the system up.

Will probably drop it & try TeleNav to see if it's any better.

just an fyi i live near chicago and when i was trying to get to the auto show last month, telenav kept taking me to the united center. the sad thing about is i knew how to get there and just wanted to use telenav for fun and all it kept doing was turn right and then right...a big circle. also, telenav likes to reroute you even though you are going the right way to begin with.
