Re: Yay landfill!

Who uses Garmin or TomTom GPS's these days?

They pissed off their customers by spamming them every time they turned on the device telling them to update the maps, or follow road rules, etc, etc and made you accept their T&C's before you could even start using the thing, sometimes I had to accept 2 or 3 interruption messages before I could start using my tomtom.

My Android phone ALWAYS has up to date maps, no extra charge for traffic, and it just works, even with voice controls. No stupid prompts to acknowledge every time I want to use it...
