    You can only delete a few, but you can go to the settings then go to applications and then go to manage apps.

    Android comes with Google Maps and Google Navigator. They work with the phone's builtin A-GPS receiver.

    Google maps is nice because its updated constantly with new data on locations.

    The big downside to the system, is that it requires an internet connection to work, at least you need internet to calculate a route. If you lose connection en route, it'll still get you there, but you won't be able to set any new destinations.

    It also chews through battery, so get a car charger.

    I find I can use my phone most of the time for navigation, but I keep a garmin Nuvi on hand as well, for when I'm outside of coverage.

    Increase performance, speed or battery?

    Speed, keep an eye on your phones internal memory, they tend to slow a bit when memory gets low. Move what apps you can to SD (maybe get a bigger card too, useful once root is attained as well as immediately for pics and stuff.).
    Live wall papers and stuff (like my crazy home launcher) can help slow your phone when memory is low to but not as bad as some phones I've owned. I had 100 user apps installed yesterday and finally hit the lag threshold around 60mb free internal memory.

    Other than that the performance isn't bad.

    Just use the power control widget to turn stuff off that you aren't using.

    Does your friend have MMS capability on his phone and service provider?

    Root means that you have "full administrative access" to your phone and can make changes that the manufacturer and service provider have prevented you from making and/or are locked down. Rooting your phone allows you to remove built in applications that you do not use or do not want.
