    Ok so I am driving to a restaurant tonight locally and a bridge near me is closed/backed up due to an accident. I am about to get on line anyway to to wait to cross when I realized in the nick of time that I could flip on the navigation and a new route and circumvent the bridge. Thats exactly what I did and the Droid GPS was incredible.

    Thats is one of many reasons why my Droid rocks!

    Whats yours?

    My droid rocks because:

    It replaced a Garmin GPS and a Sirius satellite receiver that were both hanging from my windshield. Even after the addition of the $30 data plan I'm coming out ahead because I reduced my TXT plan (use Twitdroid instead of TXT for Twitter) and cancelled my Sirius radio subscription.

    Because, it "just does". :)

    1.) GPS
    2.) Turn-by-turn directions.
    3.) All e-mail accounts in one spot.
    4.) Speed.
    5.) Call clarity / network.
    6.) Apps I actually need and use.
    7.) Great community and support.

    3. iTouch
    4. Home weather station
    5. A dozen or so barcode thingy's on my key ring
    6. My PC (not quite replaced, but gets a lot less use these days)

    This amazing device attracts people. Almost every time I've used my Droid in public someone notices and asks to take a closer look

    google maps! A Lot of freeway construction around my area, I just fire up gmaps with the traffic overlay saves me a lot of time on the road.

    Because I no longer have to get up from playing a video game to look up a cheat code, map, or strategy guide. I simply pull out my phone, hit voice search, and keep on playing.

    I can also reset my fantasy lineup five minutes before gametime when I forget to do so before I leave the house.

    I also use it at work all the time (I work at a video store). People ask stuff like "what was that baseball movie with Kevin Costner?" I hit voice search, say "baseball movie Kevin Costner," and reply with "did you mean Field of Dreams or For the Love of the Game?"

    Love this phone.

    One more:
    Because I'm a gadget whore, that's why.
