Ford Navigation vs garmin

Picking up a new 2011 Expedition with navigation next week. Over the years I have grown so used to my trusty Garmin GPS. It has never failed me. How do the turning prompts, turning arrows, voices, etc on the Ford navigation compare with a Garmin GPS? Are turn prompts and turn arrows given well ahead of the actual turn? I've heard that the Ford navigation does not announce "recalculating" when deviating from the mapped route. Is this true? I've also heard that Ford navigation only announces something like "turn right in 400 feet" whereas Garmin will say " in 400 feet turn right onto Market Street". Ford does not announce street name. Can this be confirmed?

Thanks

Maybe I should have asked at the Chevy forum.

Don't waste a penny on the Ford Navigation. Garmin kills it.

I'll never buy a GPS or Nav for any of my vehicles going forward. My Droid Navigation is far and ahead much more accurate than either of the Navs discussed. I have only played with the Ford Nav on a limited basis but have had many problems with stand alone GPS like the Garmin's and such. Head to head, GPS vs. my Droid phone, no comparison.
