No offense but if it's a prod with that half bitten Apple...not gonna buy. Even if it's a better product. They do have really good products, I just don't agree with their proprietary approach. Really appreciate your input on this tho! Didn't know there was a real diff between GPS's but guess that makes sense. Turn by turn probably good for wife to have. When I drive with wife she's my GPS... just tells me where to go all the time LOL. Thx for info Craig!

If you need turn by turn, voice instruction GPS service, go Android.
If you are part of the Apple ecosystem (iTunes), go iPhone.  There are
reasons to go either way, figure out what you need, what you want,
what you can't stand and THEN look for your mobile device!

I really like my iPhone and am really looking forward to iOS 6 this fall.
