For those of us with no sense of direction, the Garmin was a game changer. Gone was the anxiety that we missed the exit, even if that exit was still 15 miles away. The interface was simple as could be, the woman's voice only occasionally irritating as she "recalculated." Getting our directions via iPhone is a significantly worse user experience, but we've always got our iPhone on us, and it's always charged.
