Not I. Bought a Garmin handheld right after GPS was opened around 2002. Waterproof. Runs on two AA rechargeables. Loads the latest maps. Receives from the same satellites. Used it this weekend for three days on the same pair off AAs. I'm not a luddite. I have iPhones, but the battery life is terrible (and can only be charged with a cable, not battery replacement), they're very fragile (and expensive to replace). The only reason I'd consider trying to use a phone in the ADKs is if there were a data connection, which there isn't.
