I am think about getting a Garmin or Tom Tom for my vehicle, but I am upgrading my phone to an iPhone next month. I heard that the GPS is pretty good on the iPhone, but will it be inconvenient to use it in the car?

I have never used the GPS on the iPhone before but I did purchase a TomTom One last year for a trip we took. Making the jump from maps to the GPS was fantastic! Even if you miss a turn or there is a diversion it gets you back on track instantly. I would never drive in a strange city without one.

A friend of mine has a iPhone and says that the GPS works good but she doesn't have anything to compare it to...

Thank you so much for the input. I am really concerned about the iPhone's usefulness while driving.

I decided to get an iPhone (for other reasons than the GPS function). Anyway, the GPS on the iPhone is great as long as you are not driving. Another thing is that it does not have turn by turn instructions. For this reason I purchased a Tom Tom as well. I am happy with both of them Smile
