    I was going to post in another thread but it was closed and I am not quite sure why. I have for my Blackberry Bold the Garminxt and it cost me 99.00. They are not going to participate in the iphone race which dissappoints me as I love their products. The navagon looks like a pretty decent program for 94.00 and I will guess tomtom will be in that neighborhood plus additional for the holder. Nav programs are not cheap folks. I will buy the tomtom complete if it comes in at 120 or under. Again I dont know why the other thread was closed but these apps will be out soon and I think it would be great if we can discuss them as thats all thats missing for me right now. I really need a way to find my way home turn by turn lol.

    I've never used a real navigation device. My car came with a DVD based system, but it's WAY out of date.

    Do TomTom and others get updated roads somewhat frequently? Do you have to pay for those updates?

    If TomTom's kit for the iPhone works, I will probably get it in short order. I get lost easily, and especially since I've moved to a new state with no physical landmarks (I used to live in Colorado so at least you always knew which way West was)

    You can buy a stand-alone TomTom unit with maps for just over $100. We already have the hardware (iPhone). They shouldn't charge more than $50.00 for the software + maps. If I decide to purchase the mount, I'd expect to pay more of course. If they decide to go the subscription route, I'll just buy a simple stand-alone Garmin unit.

    Yes you are right if they decide to offer navtel at 10 bucks a month they can keep that. My garmin-xt for the Blackberry requires nothing more than th maps and you can upgrade them I think free the first year and than so much after that I think dont quote me on that......
