    What happens is once you are done with the call, it will resume the map and driving directions.

    We should give CDMA props for one thing. The range is at least 50% better than GSM on a per tower basis. I'm not sure why, but something about GSM makes it get lower range. This means ATT has to raise more towers for the same coverage or have more dead spots (both of which are true out in Kansas)

    If i remember correctly it has something to do with the frequency band that GSM uses in it's technology. While *Edited*wosre technology the limitations on service are very clear.

    I don't think this is too bad. Beats missing the call altogether. I currently have a Garmin and I answer my phonecallls through it using bluetooth, but this should be good enough. Thanks for the info!

    Isn't the title of this post misleading? How can there be technical issues on a device that's not out yet? Technical issues implies there's something wrong (a hiccup) with the droid. I'm sure there will be issues, but we don't know them yet. Anything else at this point isn't a technical issue as much as it's by design. Yes?

    Bluetooth Voice Dialing is an Android Limitation(and always has been), not a Motorola Limitation. Ugh, noobtastic.

    You may have inferred that from the title of this thread. I did not imply it at all. For example, there is a large amount of teeth-gnashing over the lacking of pinch-zoom in the browser and other apps. Is is wrong or a "hiccup"? I don't know. It is a fact. That is all.

    However, some (many<?>) people have had issues with the Auto-focus capability of the camera part of this phone. I would say for sure that is wrong and is a hiccup. The consensus from people in the know is that this will be solved in short order.

    The issue surrounding no Bluetooth voice dialing is part of previous versions of Android and it appears to be part of Android 2.0 also. I have a funny feeling that Google may change this in a future update (Google tends to listen to customers).


    All I wanted to do was to quickly summarize what issues had been uncovered at the time of my post. There have been new ones and there will be more.

    jwd, you're right and it is a good topic. just because a phone isn't out yet doesn't mean we can't talk about it.. that's why there are over 400 members registered in, what, 11 days?

    I'm wondering about the Droid and my Chrysler My Gig bluetooth connection for dialing. The My gig doesnt connect to the phone as a headset, it connects as something else (I'll have to go pull the user manual), the numbers/contacts etc are stored on the vehicle side and the car dials through the phone, not sure if it will work or not.

    My guess is if it will connect, the voice dialing will work since the car will decide what number is being dialed and send it to the phone. Time will tell I guess :)

    ** Edit **
    Just checked and it connects using the hands free protocol, and yes I did google it already, the droid does have the hfp 1.5 so it might work, have to wait and see.
