    So in a way, your wife got you to ask for directions. No wonder she loves the phone.

    Asking for directions and checking my GPS phone are NOT the same thing.

    Then I guess all attempts at humor are lost on you.

    Voice-enabled navigation is definitely the killer app for me as well. This alone justifies the price of the phone as far as I'm concerned.

    I question the fact that the wife was driving..... she should be in the passenger seat and quiet.

    LOL :rolleyes: Naaaa, I offered seeing that she was becoming soooo frustrated. My wife is very bright, Masters Degree + Real Estate investor, amazing woman, but she is terrible (and I mean terrible) with directions. I also had a tee time so I needed to get back ASAP.

    I went to a concert the other night and upon leaving, realized we were lost in the city and flanked by not-so-nice neighborhoods. Whipped out the Car Dock feature for the first time and was VERY impressed by how great the Navigation was. The map on the screen scaled beautifully as well. That's when it occurred to me that the INC has a helluva lot more processing power than even a dedicated navigation device.

    Now I have to find a windshield mount that I like.

    I have yet to really give the Nav a shot. When I had my BB Bold I used the VZ Navigator and it worked fine. During my Storm 2 days I used google maps but the screen wouldn't update fast enough so sometimes I would miss turns here and there...could never figure out why the hell it was doing that. Lots of good stories from the android folks using nav though, cant wait to give it a shot

    I forgot to mention that when I told her to turn around we ran right into construction and got diverted, she again doubted my Incredible and tried to get directions from the doctor

    I was on a trip in another state this weekend. The dude I was with brought his new Garmin, hoping to impress me. By Friday afternoon, he'd shoved it under his car seat. It couldn't come close to Google Nav.

    I got my wife a Garmin for her car. The last 2 times we were in her car, it was so much easier for me to use the Inc's voice recognition to enter the destination that she didn't even have time to enter the destination into the Garmin.

    I think it's going to cost me in the long run though: this is the first smartphone I've had that she says she thinks she might like. Dang, my rate plan is going to go up when her renewal comes up in July.
