The googlemaps functionality is pretty cool, as is the info service (just tried both). What's nice is that you can use the number to make a call or the address or add it to your address book. Pretty tidy.
The menu system is predictably clunky and hidden away. I also don't like the delay in manually having to pick up the message from google and the delay in connecting to the assist service.
Still can't complain since it's free
