I do prefer the look of the "naked" iPhone, but it actually bothers my ear on the rare occasions that I am actually using it as a phone. So I have the extra bulky look of the OtterBox.

There's no way in holy heck I'd go without a case for my iPhone. I'm too clumsy and refuse to risk dropping it and breaking it.

Me too Nikki.. I finally found a flip case and love it. Took forever to locate a good one that wasn't ridiculously priced

I have not found a case that does not spoils the feel of the iPhone, so I am current au naturale

The TomTom app is now available for $99.99. I'm seeing a lot of mixed reviews on it, mostly that it works better than the other GPS apps, but its still not as good as it should be for something that Apple touted at WWDC. No traffic, no spoken street names, POIs are out of date, no separate volume control, doesn't use "standard" iPhone map controls (drag, pinch, etc), no mention of the mount that it was being shown with. Basically missing a lot of the features that are in the standalone TomTom models.

Oh, and its 3GB big.

Well summed up, but for the benefit of the question asker, the uk and Ireland one is only 250mb

The mount is rumored to cost $90. The big question remains will Tom Tom update the app for free for life or charge updates like they do with their standalone GPS.

For $190, I would go out and just buy a standalone. You can get a Tom Tom XL that has better feature sets than the iPhone app for $100 at Best Buy. Plus, you don't have the pain of directions being interuppted by a call or message.

I think it's a bad move on Tom Tom's part I guarantee they will charge $9.99 a quarter to update the maps but they don't tell you that. I wouldn't mind paying for updates if the app was reasonable. I think it's a mistake to charge so much

Amen! I've only had mine for a week or so, and I've dropped it 3 times

No thanks.. I'll stay with my little cheap GPS that I got at office depot about 5 years ago during a black Friday sale for $75.00 It gets us back and forth to Disney just fine, thank you very much!

My TomTom app cost less

To be fair, the TomTom app is pretty good, and is a step in the right direction as far as Sat Navs go, it will kill the battery without a cradle tho

I agree. I already had a Garmin GPS and I'll use that over the Iphone GPS apps any day. Plus I like to listed to my Ipod while I drive. Of course I'm assuming that isn't an option if your using the phone as a GPS unit. I could be wrong.

Just did a quick trial, and you CAN listen to your iPod while TomTom is running - it cuts out to give you the directions, then carries on with what you're listening to
