    Forget typing into the phone. Just talk to your sweet phone.

    "Cinnabon Jackson,Tn." or
    "Jackson,Tn Cinnabon"

    That is all you need. Friggen awesome!

    Sorry if this is widely known but this is my first experience with (Google?) GPS.

    Another "trick" I found today is that you probably don't need to use GPS on the highways if you have the phone set up to use the network to determine location. As long as you can see three towers, you can accurately triangulate your position. I turned on maps today without turning on my GPS first and it still knew exactly where I was until I got off on some back roads and couldn't see enough towers to triangulate my position. Pretty cool!
