Outside reviews:

James Kendrick of jkontherun.com has used Sprint’s Navigation service for years. He recently described his experience of finding his way with the help of the service on a Palm Pre.

“Sprint Navigation is a wonderful utility for Palm Pre owners, and providing it free is a good benefit. The service works as well as dedicated GPS navigation systems, and the convenience of having it right in the Pre is nice,” Kendrick wrote at  jkOnTheRun.

“This has saved my bacon more than once and let me avoid traffic tie-ups.” http://jkontherun.com/2009/08/25/palm-pre-tip-of-the-day-add-address-to-sprint-navigation-online/.
