I am on the road now with my Droid X. I am in West Virginia. I used my Droid X's GPS on the drive here and all worked fine except for a few spots where I lost Verizon data connectivity. During that time the GPS stopped responding completely. I am now in an Extended Network area. I have only voice capabilities on my phone - no data, no GPS etc. Question: Why does my Garmin GPS work 100% of the time in all areas? It must communicate directly wth the GPS satellites. Does the GPS on the Droid X first route it's signal through the Verizon cell network before it hits the GPS satellite. If so, why? Sounds like a bad design to me.
