iPhone w/ GPS


Is anyone planning on trying the new iPhone that's slated for this month? Supposedly it has a built in GPSr.


My son and I will be getting the new iPhones and we will be gifting our current iPhones to my wife and daughter. The decision did not in any way involve the GPS capabilities of the new iPhone.

I find the Google Maps function of the iPhone to be very good for locating points of interest, but I always put the addresses into my GPS to navigate. It is nice to be able to touch the phone number to dial if you need to call prior to, or rather than navigating to the location. After all, it is a phone with a giant POI resource via live internet.

I'll update this if the new iPhone suddenly seems to be more feature rich than any of the GPS devices I have.
