Google Maps needs an Co-Pilot mode
January 4, 2018
Like most people during the holiday season, my fiance and I had some traveling to do. Fortunately for us all the family we were visiting was within 50 miles of home so it was all driving. While most of the drives were in areas we were familiar with I still routinely used Google Maps for navigation around the unusual traffic conditions. During one of the legs of our journey we needed to add a stop to the nearest grocery store — which spurned the idea of Google Maps Co-Pilot.
Nexus One a week later

I’m just going to really quickly outline my thoughts of the Nexus One after having it for a week: The trackball is basically useless for navigation, except for getting around in text fields. It does a great job glowing though, and damn is it bright. The unit is still lickity split fast, except it can get hung up if you try to do too much at the same time. The call quality is good, I’ve not had any issues with dropped calls on my side (that I know of).
