Just got back from a New England vacation. I relied on my Garmin and Droid to navigate everywhere. Garmin worked every time I used it - thank God.
The Droid/Google Navigation was unavailable about half of the time - extremely frustrating! I updated my PRL prior to the trip, but even when I could surf the web, I'd switch over to Navigation and get "Data connection lost" (or something like that). This happened in too many different places for me to depend on the Droid at all - really sucked IMO.
Then, just to check GPS on the way home, it couldn't "Locate GPS" from CT all the way through Maryland! I restarted the phone several times. Even on roads close to home that have worked 100% of the time - 0% GPS. The Maps app and the Navigation didn't work once - for hundreds of miles.
I checked the Google page just to let it acquire my location, and it did so 100% of the time.
What am I missing here? My Droid (which I love) had so little value on this trip as a navigation tool. Very disappointing!
