For most purposes the GPS in the iPhone is great. However, I needed to
buy a Garmin GPS also. The iPhone GPS depends on getting the maps from
Google over the 3G phone network. If you go anywhere without 3G or EDGE
data coverage, you no longer get maps.
Most of the time I don't wander outside of the coverage area. However,
in the event of an emergency, the cellular network is often overloaded
or loses power.
On the other hand, the mapping data from Google is usually more
up-to-date than what you would have in a dedicated device, even if you
buy the annual map upgrades.
