Let's just say... don't use it as your main GPS navigation, or you may end up driving into a lake.

I scanned a few cities and they were pretty accurate

what's nice is the elevation changes give me a better sense of the area and what I should be expecting

I'll try to get some if I can, but it's really as pictured. If there's a certain angle you want to see I'll take a picture of it.

Does it come with the cable?

I thought this one looks pretty good for $25, no cable.

I think it's at a 10% incline because anymore would place too much stress on the tiny connector. They do sell a plastic back plate in case you want more back support.

The perfect case imo is the Belkin Candy Sheer Grip. HIGH quality TPU case.

Minimalistic, perfect fit, perfect openings, sheer/smooth finish all around, lip on face for protection (but not intrusive), and no flimsy edges. Button presses are good (not 100% as if there were no case at all, but very livable).

The best part is it doesn't scratch up your phone. I never understood the point of those cases with sharp seams inside or hard plastic cases that scratch your phone. Might as well go naked. The case is supposed to protect the phone.

This case is going to scratch the shi^t out of your iphone bezel..

Because it is one of those hard plastic cases that "snap" onto the phone. Watch the youtube vid of it in 1080p. The quality looks mediocre with some rough edges. It's not as precise as the computer mockup looks.

The best protection you can get is from a silicone case (in terms of the case not scratching the phone), then TPU, then stuff like this.

If you have a black one, he is kinda correct. That case doesn't FULLY cover the edge of the bezel... It WILL scratch eventually... I got a REALLY nice clear case from China I will take pics of later, it's amazingly nice... I gave it to the lady cuz it looked better on white. I still rock the griffin reveal.
