The few times I've been in my truck and left my GPS at home, trying to find and navigate to an address takes for-fucking-ever on the phone. GPS is a little more difficult for data-entry, but a lot more forgiving than the tiny-ass touch screen keys on the phone. And the GPS doesn't try and auto-correct street or city names.



Right tool for the job n' shit.
I suppose its what you're used to. My wife has a Nuvi and everytime I try to use that thing I get annoyed.

I'll stick with my phone.
