    Hello, guys.

    I am planning changing my phone from Moto Q9c to Moment. I am using Sprint SERO plan, and everything looks good except navigation. Moto Q9c uses Window Mobile 6, so there are pretty many good apps for navigation. But, my question is should I use Sprint navigation apps?

    I have used 2 or 3 free nav apps on my Q9c. But, it seems like everyone is using Sprint nav on Moment. The problem is Sprint Nav is not free for me. I should pay for it because I am using SERO plan, and SERO plan does not include Sprint Nav plan. It costs me $10 per month!!! $100 can buy a good nav from Garmin or TomTom.

    I searched this forum, and there is one more nav app: Google map. But, it looks having some problems on it. Is it fixed? or it is still like that? I should use a navigation app, and have to choose Paying Sprint app or Buying a Garmin GPS if there is no good nav app on Moment. but I want to save money, so I ask your experience about google map or other nav apps. Is it useful after upgrade to 2.0 OS? Any suggestions or tips are appreciated. I don't want to pay $10 for Sprint Nav.

    Google Maps will give directions, sort of. Sprint Nav works fine for me. I kinda like it. But it's quirky too, and usually I have to set the phone on the dash to get reception for GPS nav.

    Moot point...you cannot activate a Moment, or any Android phone, on the SERO plan. You will need to upgrade to the $59.99 Everything Plus plan, which includes Sprint Nav anyway.
