Long time Garmin Nuvi user, but Garmin 760 died last weekend, and Garmin no longer repairs them. I downloaded MotionX since I have an iPhone5 and a robust data plan. If there are any MotionX users here, any tips, tricks, or traps? I know the app is $0.99 but voice service for a year costs an additional $9.99 . That seems reasonable, vice Garmin lifetime map cost, etc.

I "bit the bullet last night and order a Google Nexus 4. Anyway, I noticed that it lists its battery capacity as 2100 mAh. That got me to wondering about my Garminfone and it lists the battery as 1150 mAh. So, now what I am wondering is if I can expect roughly twice the GPS navigation operating time with the Nexus 4 vs. the Garminfone or are they way too many variables to assume that?

My wife, sons, and I are in Washington DC on Spring Break vacation this week. We flew in Sunday and have been taking the Metro and walking to the various attractions. Anyway, although I have been getting by with my Garminfone and Nexus 7 with Co-Pilot, my Garminfone battery doesn't last long enough. I had some additional batteries, but I am down to one right now.
Has anyone ever tried these travel apps:
