All that sputtering about an abandoned phone...
Ex: I downloaded the GPS app Waze, right, set it up and so on.... the other night, Sunday, Im driving down to Central Park, the Boathouse, for my cousins wedding... and flipped the Google GPS on as soon as I crossed over the GW so it would take me a certain way (long story, short story if you know Manhattan).
It comes on, and immediately says "App not responding, close app?" so I hit cancel, THEN the effin thing says I need to turn on the GPS!
My wife, in the passenger seat, starts freaking out that Im not paying attention to the road, Im freaking out over the phone and trying to drive, and nearly got into ANOTHER accident trying to use this POS as a GPS.
I nearly, I swear to God, threw it out the window. I wish I had it on tape, I would upload it to youtube and you can see 2 people go from calm to freaking out in under a minute due to a $600 POS.
It seems, to me and my experiences at least, that the GPS works great when your stopped and just go, not for turning it on while driving. In my above example the only reason I turned it on after the bridge was for it to take me a certain way I was not that familiar with, I didnt need it on from 45 minutes away and waste data. After I uninstalled Waze it seems to be fine most of the time.
Should have used the cars GPS but it doesnt know traffic if there is...
Most of us are on 2-year contracts, so keeping up with the latest software versions is important. Beyond 2 years is another story. I, for one, am thrilled that my 1-year-old phone is receiving the latest Software. We shouldn't be abandoned, with a high end phone, after one year. A year from now I will get a new phone. I should not be expected to buy a new phone every year just to keep up.
