You prefer a dedicated smartphone as your GPS? No problem with that. If you prefer the ergos, the software, if you find it more responsive, whatever.
I can lost/break my GPS. I won't be happy but it's not the end of my life. I mean, I can wait few weeks and take my time to read some reviews and wait for a deal to buy another. Same for a camera. But my phone? Everything at the same time?
Anyway, to each his own
MotionX has been good to me, for phone and for ipad, as I mentioned. All of this has gotten me to look into GPSs though, even as I curse at my Nuvis, audibly. Really liking the look of the Garmin GPSmap 62st for versatility...
