Video demo of the GPS, couple of picture-in-picture screencasts to show GPSinfo and the Navigation screen on the same route too (different trips, immediately following each other):



Detailed blog post to accompany all this @ AndroidNZ.net including lots of raw MyTracks KML files for people to pore over should they feel the need.

That is true, but perhaps you meant that to go in a different thread?

NZtechfreak, another great video. What is battery life like when using GPS?

Seems decent, I had this yesterday:

#GalaxyNote battery today: down to 66% after 1h43m screen on 8hrs off charger (~30mins full brightness doing GPS tests) - pretty good!

What's it been like to use as a "normal user"?
I.E. your personal opinion rather than a reviewer :D

Easy to use, carry around, battery use, etc ?

Never mind my previous post, I'll find out in week (or so) for myself.

Thanks to NZtechfreak for the reviews.

Yeah ... wanted one since I saw it on gsmarena but tried to resist the temptation as I have an SGS2 and an HTC Titan ...

Techgeekiness won out (with the help of your reviews) :(

Ordered from Clove last night and it's been dispatched already.

@NZTechFreak - Do you recall what make/model your car mount is? I need a new one for my SGS2 and my current car doesn't play nice with the air-vent mounted one I have.

Can't remember, but should be able to track down the Trademe details in my Gmail. Will get back to you.

The base it's stuck to is actually from a Dick Smith phone holder though (its stuck to the dash, and fortuitously the Trademe cradle has a compatibile fitting for it at the back).
