What Apple Could Learn From Garmin

But what it does that the iPhone can't for the price, is understand our Aussie language ( correctly) when the screen is dull or sleeping you say, WAKE UP, and the screen awakens, and it eagerly awaits our next command. (Brilliant).
You then say, navigate to a suburb, before you can blink it wants the street address, so you tell it the street and number, and like a dog waiting for its bone it obeys your every command, perfectly, you can even ask it to direct you to the closest servo, who has the lowest price petrol, or take to the local restaurant, hospital, doctor, shopping centre, bank, ATM, sporting ground, hotel, the list is almost endless, all without touching the screen once.
It has blue tooth, so it can even make voice calls to people in your iPhones contact list, again without touching anything, the list of things it can do is endless.
So apple if a GPS can do all this why can't Siri, I don't even think have these features are built into iOS 6 ?
If my GPS could dial and make phone calls without being connected to my iPhone, my iPhone would be going in the bin.
Did i say the thing is Brilliant, and for a guy like me who does 1000 plus kilometres per week, i would have paid double what this thing cost me for the convenience, plus the added safety of knowing inspector plod, is not going to fine me $233 for touching my iPhone or my GPS while driving

The thing has a very tiny memory capacity, I think its about 512meg, but it tells me in advance of any breakdowns on my journey, including if there has been an accident, a flat tyre, a flooded road way, bush fire, or just about anything else that will slow your trip, plus you can type in different voice commands which it learns, plus once you start a trip to see a customer say every monday, the thing will pre plot your journey for you without you lifting a finger, it actually learns your routine, after using the thing today for 9 hours start, I absolutely love this thing.
If Siri could do half as much and learn 10% of what this little marvel has learned today, I would be blown away.
O and plus the battery lasts 4 hours without a charge, while you are using it, (try that on your iPhone) with GPS running, plus it lasts 30 days in sleep mode

Siri could do worse than learn how to accept commands.
