    Maybe I'm missing something, but what good would it do to be on Sprint Nav while on a call? Isn't that way too many things to do at once (drive, keep eyes on road, have a conversation, and look and listen to prompts from Sprint Nav) to be safe?

    I have Sprint Nav on my Instinct S30, and I have never, ever, ever wanted to run another function on the phone while using it and driving at the same time.

    But can you receive a call while browsing the net? That seems pretty important.

    Otherwise you have to choose between being on the net and being unavailable, like back in the early dial-up days. The cell phone is my only phone.

    You don't have to look at the screen if you get a call. Nice to have the option to answer the phone.

    If you are surfing the web, a call interrupts the data connection and you can answer it. We haven't seen exactly what happens with the web page and what happens when you hang up, but you will be able to answer a call.

    If this is a limitation of the Sprint network then it gives me enough reason to hold off until the GSM version is available.

    Thoughts?
    Can you please point me to the page number for this in the user guide?

    Use Another Application While on a Call
    You can use many other applications on your phone, including the organizer and text
    message features, while holding a phone conversation. You can use the Sprint network for only one activity at a time—phone or data—so you cannot use the Sprint network to browse the Web, check email, or exchange MMS messages during a call. To browse the Web or check email during a call, you must connect to a Wi-Fi network. See “Wi-Fi” on page 230.

    On EVDO, at least, calls have priority over data streams, but as soon as the call ends, the data stream resumes.

    The bigger problem with Telenav on older Palm devices is that receiving a call interrupts your navigation session, and you have to start up Telenav again. I'm hoping that won't happen on the Pre.

    You shouldn't have to restart Telenav on the Pre since it's supposed to multitask.

    Older Palm devices didn't multi-task. My bet is the call pops up, you decide whether to answer it or not, and it goes back to the Navigation screen as the maps are cached.

    My solution: If I need to look up something on the web I'll call them back.
