As with all techonolgy, it improves over time; I assume that will be the case here as well.
I like many of the services but mainly find traffic and directions useful. My issue with directions has been that:
1. I have yet to have the non-assisted system find my address, even after repeated attempts while the assistant instantly finds the address and down loads it to me.
2. The system must be again updated to a new route if you leave the planned route (either intentionally or through a wrong turn) and this requires another cell phone call.
I use traffic, I do not use directions, except to test it. I rely on my very trustworthy five year old Garmin Nuvi to get me there no matter how badly I follow her directions.
