Re: Google Nav or Sprint Nav...which is better?
Honestly I like Sprint Nav better. It's built as a true navigation GPS whereas Google Maps is mapping software first and foremost.
It takes more clicks to start navigating on Google Maps, and I much prefer the voice in Sprint Nav. But they are both really good overall.

I use Sprint nav every day going home from work because of it's traffic feature. I have two routes I can use to get home and it directs me to the quickest and has been pretty reliable. Using it on trips, it seems a little slow to give turn directions. My standalone Garmin works much better in that regard so I use it on trips.
I am looking forward to using the Google nav as it has some interesting features. Especially the voice lookup of POIs. You can use voice with Sprint but it can be kind of clunky.Kyo 6035 > Kyo 7135 > Palm 800W > HTC EVO 4G > HTC EVOLTE + EVO View 4G

For me it's not that big of a deal to have a separate device dedicated to navigation. I only use it in my car. I also like knowing that if my signal dies, I don't have to worry about not updating. I also think it has better route calculation, and is quicker to update maps.
Sprint Nav is great if I need a quick direction or am in someone else's car. But if I am navigating a new area I prefer the Garmin.

Maybe be a weird question but you guys would know best, is there a way to navigate using constant Google Street View? I would love to be able to see exactly what the road looks like as I am actually on it with live Street View updates as I travel.Systems Analyst by trade, drummer by desire and music lover by birth.

For the record, I have used Google Navigation. It worked very well and was really accurate. I like the way it would instantly reroute the journey if you took a different route than what was recommended at first. I also like the voice command feature.
Looking forward to playing with the Sprint version late next week.
