    Haven't had any issues with it either... I use it on nearly a daily basis anymore! It's not always the most accurate, and one of the reasons for that has already been pointed out. I would point out that there is still an inherent "tolerance" to gps accuracy, though it has improved vastly over the years!

    I typed in "red bull soap box" and it took me right to where needed to go and that's not even a real address and it only occurred that day

    i agree i never liked it either it gives you long way around and it is a memory hog but like some one said i live away from the city so i am sure that is why but on the other hand why is it infospace findit is always right on but it doesnt have gps

    I just wish that they would allow for you to use the devices GPS system to get way more accurate because they already use cell phone towers to find u just use the Device GPS and you will have AGPS ~via BB (

    I have never had an issue with Google Maps. Works great, just like most Google products. It seems like they keep finding ways to revolutionize things to make life easier.

    my guess is that your mileage (usefullness) may vary depending on your location. i would guess it may be more accurate in some locations than others. i have personally had success and utter failure using it for directions in various areas. in some cases suggesting i exit where there was no exit.

    I use MyPoynt; Google Maps was useless for me...the directions were always so faulty; in San Antonio, TX one of the largest cities and they were sending me down non-existant roads, telling me a road turned into another one when it did not and telling me to turn left on a right only street.. The triangulation stuff wasn't very good either...I mean a 900Meter line of error is a lot..for me at least...Maybe with GPS it is a lot better, but I'm on VZW. MyPoynt works really well for me and the directions are good; when all else fails I just get on Mapquest via Opera Mini; but MyPoynt is working good for me so far.

    I have to second the recommendation for Microsoft Live Search over Google Maps. IMHO, it's better in every way. I like the Google Maps app even less now, since they added an "enhancement" a couple updates ago so that the GPS marker only updates at 5 second intervals or so, making it more likely to miss a turn while you're driving. I'm assuming they did that to address battery drain issues, but it does not work well whilst driving. I imagine it would be fine if walking, which is maybe who they're catering to, with the subway directions and such. But that's worthless to me since I live nowhere near NYC. I must admit, Live Search is not always accurate either, though. As far as accuracy goes I still find that MapQuest is king.
