Navigation

 

Powered by TeleNav, which also produces AT&T Navigator, Sprint Navigation gives verbal, turn-by-turn directions with live traffic alerts offering detour suggestions. The search feature lets you hunt for weather reports and gas prices (by location,...

Fonts are large, heavy, and easy to read Free Google-like maps with written directions

Some traffic reports spotty; menus awkward Voice-recog input doesn't autostart directions

After the trial period, the cost is $3 per day or $10 per month, the same price as other carrier-branded services. As for the data streaming (for downloading maps or doing searches), if you intend to use the GPS service extensively, you'd probably be...

This is a solid in-phone GPS system. I have not had a Garmin or TomTom so I have nothing to which to compare. It was a free app and very functional.

I travel Florida a lot and rely heavily on Sprint Nav - love the simplicty of entering addresses by business name or typing or voice recognition. It offers turn by turn directions with handy voice prompts

It is battery intensive. It does not offer directions when you are working on another application - like reading e-mail etc

With some of its drawbacks, the Sprint Navigation service will get you there. Just don't solely depend on it to block-level locations.

My Location" is very acurate

Sometimes will not take into account cut-ins to divided roads for turning (ie College Boulevard, Overland Park, Kansas)

Sprint Navigation

 

This is not a good navigation system. It is very slow and does not give the best routes for travel. It hardly ever finds alternative routes, until you force a different route by traveling in a different direction yourself. Sometimes it even shuts down...

The pro is the convenience of having a nav system on your cell phone

Slow. Gives the worse routes. Stops during navigation. Reloads itself several times during navigation. Does not talk ahead and tell you what's about to occur as fast

I could not find union 76 stations listed. I needed to call a particular station in Marysville WA. I then check and the only Shell stations listed near my current location were across the border in Canada 15 miles away. I called Sprint technical...

The color maps and voice prompter in driving directions are good. It somehow saved my contacts from my old phone date card in the contact function

Does not list any union 76 gas stations at all. List Shell stations by owner names I am not familiar with. Have to punch 5 different things to find gas. Sprint was no help. Telnav was no help. BRAND NEW PHONE! Very unhappy
