    Voice Nav Impressed Me

    So just to play with my toy, I used it to navigate my way to the office (just in case I forgot lol!).

    I had to stop at the gas station. So I pulled off the road. Just about a few feet if that: a road-->curb-->parking lot deal. I was floored when the GPS came back just a split second after I pulled in with "turn right onto Scottsdale Rd" that it KNEW i had just pulled off Scottsdale Rd and was in a parking lot. So it is that accurate within a few feet? Wow. Much better than I was expecting. Some big satellite far far away can tell when I literally cross the curb? Wow. (Big Brother is watching lol!)

    It did get me to work. And when I got into the second subbasement of the parking garage (it is a concrete garage so not shocking that going down 2 floors of concrete I'd lose it) it even courteously blurted out a goodbye of "GPS Signal lost. Goodbye." LOL!!!!

    I now need the car dock. Have to find out when my Verizon is getting them in.

    Yeah, the nav is great and quick when you make changes. It'll keep me from buying a Garmin.

    Can you get voice dialing to work from the Car app? One of the example for the search is "Call John Doe, mobile". When I try it, I get a Google web search rather than phone call.
