    Next month I am replacing my phone and my car and one feature I have been on the fence about is GPS. What are you opinions of using the iPhone as a GPS?

    My alternatives would be mounting my iPad somehow and adding a GPS module, getting an in dash GPS (I was getting a double DIN radio anyway), or getting a dedicated GPS.

    I don't need GPS often enough to justify buying one, but I have been in very frustrating situations where I really wished I had one.

    What are your opinions?

    A barstool, Innis & Gunn in hand
    Standalone GPS unit.

    Inexpensive, easily moved between vehicles, easily updated via computer.

    I have a cheap Garmin 1300, and I love it.

    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    There are several decent GPS apps you might consider; mapquest and Navv come to mind.
