bro lost, so how? did you buy the 3790?
I intend to. It'll probably be my last standalone GPS I'll buy. I feel that Garmin may not be able to hold out too long before some iPhone or Android app come up with sufficient features to overtake a standalone GPS. 5 years ago (when we were much younger
) and still fiddling with bluetoothing our GPS TO our HP PDAs, I would not have said so then - the slow CPU, short batt life and memory constraints on a PDA made Mobile XT hard to use (it was fun though!). If you look at the Samsung Galaxy and iPhone now, with not only built-in GPS, but compass and gyro as well, powerful CPU and sufficient batt life, the possibilities are endless. With bus/train location and timetable integration, parking lot availability live updates, wireless 3G connectivity all in the same single device, it is all truly going to make so much sense integrate it all.
The downside of course, is that there MAY not be any MSM maps on it.
Garmin is still toughing it out with the nuviphone and sexying the GPS a'la 3790 but frankly how long before it becomes irrelevant. MSM seems to be joined to the hip now with Garmin ... will we be able to re-invent ourselves for this new decade?
Sorry, getting old and philosophical here and I hope I'm wrong. Anyways, I'll be at COMEX on Sunday ....
