    I've got this, its ok but rather annoying that i cant just enter a postcode and instead have to first enter the town, then the road.

    It also a bit slow on my 3G and often says "turn Left' etc after i have passed the turning.

    Another annoyance is that it doesnt seem to work when i lock the phone, meaning it kills battery life as the screen is on constantly.

    They have these things called "car chargers." I have two. They both work well.

    This looked really good from the screenshots (3D highway interchanges/bridges) but it's not available in the US yet.

    That's probably a good thing: if I resist the temptation to buy too soon, then competition can develop and I can buy something even better later in the year.

    I couldn't resist to buy it!

    Must admit it looks cool, and it does two things that are a must:
    1) It really works (haven't tried using it in a city a huge amount of small roads which could confuse it...)
    2) The iPod function of the iPhone works fine when Navigon is active.

    It's quick in finding the GPS satellites, and has good spees in calculating the route.
    And, it loosk really fine!

    TomTom has a serious competitor, and Navigon are first on the AppStore... ;)
