    I believe you mean Frederick MD...Fredericksburg is in VA. (I live in Frederick)

    A reboot might of restored the 3G issue.

    Another thing alot of users forget is Google Maps is Beta.....

    I have seen a similar problem with GPS coverage in Morgantown but using stand-alone GPS units. Both my Magellan and Toyota Prius have the same problem in the same areas on Morgantown. Yesterday, I had the same problem with my G1 as well (simultaneously with my Prius GPS). I have not been able to figure out what is happening, either. I have noticed this problem for several years and in several parts of Morgantown (not an easy city to navigate at the best of times!).

    Plumcrazy- You had to have planned the route at some point on a data connection. The phone has a real GPS but has no maps permanently loaded... It knows where it is co-ordinate wise, but not where it is map wise without a data connection to download map data... I wish you could download a very basic road map with no imagery from google to keep on your SD card, but as far as I know you cant... Once you planned the route in the data area, your good to go...
    In years past, it was a map and a CB radio, but today truckers have GPS navigational systems designed just for them. To assist you in finding the absolute best trucker GPS for your needs, we’ve grouped together 6 GPS navigational systems from top GPS manufacturers, to give you that special edge you need while on the road.
