It may not route me the best way everytime, but it sure beats pulling out a map.

Disclaimer: maps is better, but I don't want to use my phone when I have a Nav system in my car. I'm also not usually in a rush to get anywhere, so the scenic route doesn't bother me as much.

Thanks. I guess I'll pass on the upgrade.
