Absolutely faultless so far. Turn-by-turn is the best I've ever used and so far we haven't been able to find a town or road it doesn't have. I don't even have to look at the phone (sunlight on the screen is the big short-coming of using phones as Sat Navs) and the voice directions are enough. Huge battery savings that way too.

Haven't tried looking for POI's yet, but if you tap the screen it automatically shows the 5 or so nearest gas stations. It has a huge array of customization options too. Makes my Nuvi 500 look like it was designed for pre-schoolers.

One thing I do need to do is find out if will accept custom route uploads. That would make it spectacular.
