    Looks to me like the traditional GPS is going the way of digital cameras for the majority of folks. All the tourists I see driving or motoing are getting here using their Iphones, androids etc. instead. After they are here we see them walking down the street tracking their route to a restaurant, ice cream store, hotel, or bar. Usually get to within 1/4 block easily. Google has taken over that too.

    Obviously not as good of a GPS receiver or maps for precise locating or surveying but but for simple stuff they own it just like the built in camera & it works most of the time for what they need.

    In fact the built in camera has taken over the need for a scanner as well for many things. Looked like some even had a program that squared up photos of documents not taken directly overhead to look more like a real scan. Then a couple of clicks and they are in the mail or uploaded if that is the need

    Great program / app called Genius Scan. Had it for a couple years and it was free. Can make a nice PDF or JPEG from some pretty steep angles. http://thegrizzlylabs.com/

    Yes, there is a lot of truth to this. However, I live in the US and still use my standalone GPS(a Garmin Nuvi 1370) whenever I venture outside the city!
