What's this obsession with GPS. It is basically useless and a memory hog. I don't get it.
on the BlackBerry...Yea.
I would just carry a separate GPS unit if it was that important.
It is and I do. GPs on the BB is for all intents and (my) purposes, useless. In a vehicle OK.? the screen is way too small, it (gps), is, as far as I know, run through the cell network and not with it's own gps antenna...?? (correct me if I am wrong here). So it would seem that if one is in the middle of butt scrape nowhere, it would be useless. Besides the TomTom I have does more than just route planning etc. Bluetooth for hands free, FM transmit for mp3's, Voice recognition, and it kinda acts like a 3D radar at night when driving - one can actually see what and where the road is going before you actually drive on it. That
is kewl. :D
To top it off the TomTom can be tweaked...something one can't do with a BB gps or for that matter a Garmin either.
8830: For me a not so great phone but an awesome comm device for e-mail and messaging. could use a 1-2 meg camera though. that would be a major timesaver as opposed to now by take pic - connect cam to 'puter - DL pics - use software to edit pics - send via e-mail. With a BB cam, I can see a few of those steps gone..?
