Will have to try. Navigon is ok but been waiting for Garmin to do an app from the beginning.
On second glance though, don't like that the maps won't be on device and requires data. Not sure if search includes google.

On a recent trip to Florida, i had a few areas where coverage dropped into Edge, and it simply didn't update as fast...it kept working though, granted, i never had a phone call at the same time (which i think would be the factor there, as Edge allows only one type of data to be sent at a time (if i remember correctly).

EDGE can do voice and data at the same time.
In the case of Motion X GPS if you lose coverage while using it you lose the maps as last I saw it was using Google Maps.
With Tomtom, Navigon, several others, and likely Garmin the maps are on board like a standard GPS unit so cell coverage doesn't matter. Hence why they are normally over 1GB in size.
