Replying to: how well dose the nav work by eeyore
I can't really tell you how it works, since the one time I tried to use it, it completely failed. Otherwise I can tell you that the phone, or any other phone, does NOT use GPS. Instead, they use triangulation between the towers. I guess they say "GPS" cuz people already understand that system. As far as I know, you can't input coordinates (because it's not a true GPS), nor can you plot waypoints. Also, the phone uses air time when you are using the NAV feature, so your reception depends upon regular old phone reception, not satellites.
I will definitely buy the first phone with a real integrated GPS, that does NOT require a subscription to use!
