Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

  1. Gee, this all sounds great, but what about when i want to update my maps or when i want to update the business listings? My current Garmin charges me when i want to make an update… bottom line, even though the $100 introductory offer is a tempting one, you will have to pay Navigon for the map and business updates later on – no such thing as a free lunch :(.

    • The nice thing about this is that you only have to carry around your iPhone and not another gadget. Map updates are optional and not mandatory. I live in the NYC Metro area and I can’t remember the last time they built a new road. Map updates will be cheaper than if you bought them for a dedicated unit. As for POI updates, that’s not too important for me because I have google maps which has a very up to date database. Lookup something on google then copy/paste the address into Navigon. You can conceivably get away with paying $70 and get free program updates for quite some time. I think it is a worthwhile investment.
