I have had the G1 for 2 years and just switched over to the Garmin. I was afraid to let go of my G1 so I placed it in the safe for a backup. After 3 weeks I just gave the G1 to my son..not needed any longer.
This Garmin so far has been a litle tricky on the GPS side since you have to enter your request a little differently. I have been using the Nuvi 660 w/MP3 player which I used on my Goldwing to navigate and listen to music through the speakers via a regular jack that comes on the bike for mp3 players etc. I would then use my G1 to kepp an eye on the weather and listen to message or talk via bluetooth. Now that I have the Gaminfone, it's all in one and I love it. I am driving my bike and thanks to this new phone I can do all of these task with this unit. As for other remarks about why the GPS when they have Google maps, well Google requires service and the Garmin with Preloaded maps doesn't. So when your in the mountains or don't have service the only down side with the Garmin is you don't have access to points of interest etc, but the GPS keeps right on rockin right along. I now can listen to MP3, use the GPS, view the weather looping or still, read my email and if I choose I can text, and all of this with one hand. I saw someone post that it doesn't have the standard jack, but it does just look in the box and there's your adapter. Great so far, I just need to make some minor modifications so that it will fit in my Ram Mount, until then a simple phone sqeezer works just fine.
