Do you subscribe to or use GPS navigation on your cell phone?

I am thinking about adding this service if it is available through my provider. I know that Verizon does it because my friend who uses Verizon told me about it. I get lost easily and rely on mapquest, following people, or simply not driving somewhere alone lol. I also get on the phone and talk to somebody to help guide me if I get too lost. What do you do? Do you use GPS navigation, in your car or as a subscription service on your phone? Do you like it? Is it worth it? If you use TMobile, do you know if GPS nav is offered by them?

No worries Usually it's part of a package that the service provider offers and I would think it would be something attached to an all-inclusive internet type deal. I guess there are some not-so-nice drawbacks to it, such as you can be tracked by satellite or something, but I doubt my service provider would be trying to keep tabs on me. I think things like OnStar or Lo-Jack would have the same drawbacks - somebody can literally track you down through both, but they are also helpful in a crisis.

I have nagivation in my car but when I forget that I just use mapquest on my phone.I agree with you on trying to not go anywhere alone when I'm not sure how to get there.But I would highly recomd getting navigation for your car its so good to have not only if your lost but also if you're not familiar with the city it will point out gas stations and hospitals.

I may be using mapquest on my phone when I travel, i'll just keep the directions up on the screen so I can tell my hubby where to turn LOL. Rental cars offer GPS now but it's like $15 a day.

I do use GPS navigation my family drive up to our neighbouring countries. However, my GPS navigation relies on a GPS chip built-in on my phone which I can power on or off and the service is totally free. The only thing I have to pay for are the maps.
