    Dont get rid of your cars Gps...

    I went on a multi state trip today. and ive always wondered what would happened to the driods gps if i lost 3G coverage. Well today i found out.. If you get off track it cant Not recalculate you back on track.. Also if you loose 3G coverage and your in Gps mode you will get an Alert (!) icon letting you know this.. So dont thrown your cars gps away! or at the very least, bring it With you on your trips! I had to plug in my garmin and use it.. It was fine UNTIL i had to get off track to stop at a store, then i was done....

    I had this same problem at work. I needed to go out to Charles Town, WV and didn't bother writing directions down before i left because i had my trusty Droid with me. Well i was about an hour outside the Metro D.C. area when all of a sudden i lost my 3G coverage and my maps. I actually had to pull over and call the office to have them look online for the directions

    I've not had any problems with my GPS. In fact, my wife and I believe the Droid's GPS is more accurate and user friendly than the one on in Lexus RX350.
