    I'm interested in upgrading my Droid 1 to a TB. With the D1 I'm having high temp issues using Google Navigation to the point it turns off my Bluetooth and sometimes reboots. What are your temps like using Navigation on the TB while driving?

    Note: I'm not interested in hearing about TB reboot issues, thanks.

    It gets a little warm, but not hot. But the car dock for these is a joke. And I'd you get the necessary extended battery, there is no car dock. In many ways, the droid X is superior. 4G, Front facing camera, and kickstand are the only advantages of the bolt. The X2 will even be dual core. I thought bootloader access would be a real advantage, but so far, it has not proven to be the case. Root, rom selection, battery life, overclocking, connectivity, all better on the X. Car and multimedia docks, X wins again. Some complain about gps lock on the bolt, but I've never experienced this. And I'm still on old radio, so I don't get the random reboots. All in all, I can't recommend the bolt yet. But before gingerbread, I felt the same about my X.
