I just got my Model S on Sunday and enjoying every minute of the new experience (almost). All of the nav features and functions seem to operate through Google maps which stream to the car through the 3G connection. The only problem is that ATT service is very spotty where I live and the map frequently goes blank while driving around my neighborhood and the navigation feature is completely non existent when I am in my own driveway. Not only is it annoying to not have the map on the dash all of the time as I have with all of my previous cars, I can't even enter in an address to navigate to until I get about a mile away from home. I am finding this very annoying and wished I had known this before purchasing the car. There should be a fix to use CDMA (Verizon) which has much better coverage in the northeast. As more of these cars are sold in the NY area, I think Tesla will be faced with this issue more frequently. No one at customer support has been able to give me a decent answer on a potential fix for this.
