Garmin Mobile is a turn-by-turn navigation system for Sprint PCS phones.

I've been using it with my Sprint phone for a week or so, and although I am not a big Garmin fan, I am excited about this product. It does everything you would expect from a GPS application. Closest restaurant, grocery store, golf course to your location, distance to your next turn, reanalyzing your route when you deviate from the suggested path.

When you get out of Sprint coverage it handles it *ok*. It doesn't download the maps for your suggested route before you lose coverage, but it still shows the little triangle icon going across the screen.

At $10/month, it is probably not worth it for the common consumer, but for people that spend a lot of time on the road, or people like us that spend a lot of time with gps, I would suggest it.
