Garmin and the Smartphone link app

Hi, I just switch from the Iphone 5 to an android phone so I decided to get the garmin smartphone link app installed on my phone. I've used it for a few days but I don't see the benefit of the app. Am I missing anything and what are the FREE benefits for the app?

Does anyone else use the app and what FREE feature do you use?

Happy thanksgiving to all our great members!

Rumor has it

Nokia still hasn’t found its way to a successful comeback in the smartphone market. But the company is hoping to get its tentacles into competitors’ phones through mapping applications, a move it hopes will help it improve its maps.

Navigation App without Data Plan?

Hi,

Does anyone know of a navigation app that can use my phone's built in GPS and not require a data plan?
I have a rooted Samsung Galaxy S3.

Thanks.

Anyone looking forward to the new Nexus 4 that's coming out Nov 13?

Like the Subject says, anyone looking to upgrade this Holiday with the new Nexus 4 or wait it out?

TomTom Navigation App For Android

Apple Maps

I'm sure this has been beaten into the ground by now but I thought I'd share a funny story about my iPhone Maps using the new IOS.

I'm very happy with my Garmin so I've always used it instead of the iPhone for navigation. But one day I decided to run both and see what happened. Having heard how bad the new Apple maps are, I wanted to check it out for myself.

Microsoft Surface Tablet

There's no dedicated tablet discussion group so I'm posting this in smartphone. Microsoft has announced pricing for the Surface tablets:

Price starts at $499 for 32GB Windows RT (includes Office Home & Student). That's not bad at all.

"Uniform upgrading and rapid adoption are two important advantages that Apple, which issues updates to all eligible devices simultaneously, holds over Android -- where carriers decide when and if various devices will get upgrades, and often delay or forbid updates in the hopes that users will upgrade to newer hardware."

IOS 6 NAV: too many mistakes to be a legit product at this point in time

IOS 6 NAV: too many mistakes to be a legit product at this point in time

Directions are goofy, POI's are mislabeled or not located in the correct spot.

I'm sure Apple will learn from their mistakes and will eventually have a great product but for now I don't want to be a BETA tester.
