    I think I'm going to keep my OG Droid to use as a navigation system since I have the car dock for it. Is this even possible? Otherwise, I'll just keep it for flashing ROM's and stuff.

    the only way you can use it as a car dock is if you have wifi connected on it.. or if its active with a data plan

    There's a 3rd party nav program that actually downloads the maps before use and then you don't need data. So you can install it, use WiFi for the map DL and then have a gps unit!

    I'm selling my Droid 2 Global to CashForSmartphones for $220 which makes my new TB free! I did this with a couple of Blackberry's I used to have and it worked out very well. They are very easy to deal with and it's a lot less hassle then selling it privately.

    I'm keeping mine and will probably hard wire it in to my car so I can run coverage mapper, WiGLE WiFi, and other apps that I don't want to run on my primary phone where it will kill the battery.
