    Yes! I went to a big red store around the corner from me and besides deciding if I ever need to go to one, I will go to this one now and not the one in Chapel Hill I also picked up the Car dock. Installation onto my Dash was simple! I mean I cannot get over how fast it was, I did it right there in the parking lot!

    Now I know most regular gps units if you dont have an address entered in it will still follow you as you go.. (Show your car on the map) Does the Google nav do this somehow and I
    just haven't found it out yet? To be honest Ive only used it but one time because my battery was getting low.. (I really should look into a car charger now I suppose but I didn't think I would want one when I got the dock, I guess I'll go back to the store again today to get one, but is it possible for the nav to do what I want? Because I don't always need the turn by turn but it would be cool to still have it follow me on the map.

    Oh and I should also mention I'm finding the hard keyboard easier to use.. This is now, day 4 of me owning a droid. I must say, I think for once I've found a device I can be happy with for a long time..No trading this bad boy!

    Nope. This is something I would like also.

    The best you can do is open Google Maps and it will follow you, but not with the 3D view like Navigation.

    Or...you can tell GMN to nav to an address immediately next to you, that you will be driving past. Once you pass it just let it go and you'll be in 3D follow mode. I do this sometimes. You can then search for POI's along the way

    Theres a thought. I just wish they had included this feature.. but for the price I wont complain too much. I picked up the car charger now I'm good to go.. Just need to get a bt headset and then I'm set.

    How much did the car dock and charger set you back? I ended up buying the exact same model *with* a car charger new on ebay for 1/2 of what VZW was charging.
