New to Samsung Precedent

Hello everyone.I am new to the Samsung Precedent. My old Motorola Droid finally died and so no way was going to sign another 2 year contract. I picked up the Precedent and was wondering if anyone had any major issues with it? Has anyone travelled much with them? I Drive a truck and usually travel on I-95 from Florida to Maine and was wondering what kind of coverage you guys have especially on the major interstates and the major cities. I am supposed to head up to Maine today so guess i will find out soon.
My only complaints are incompatibility with some apps, terrible camera for barcodes and a slow CPU. Otherwise I-95 from NYC to Fayetteville, NC is pretty good coverage. I prefer a GSM phone when the signal gets spotty, but that's a personal preference - some people prefer the "going digital" of CDMA to the breakup of GSM.

(Oh, I've flashed the Area51 ROM to get a lot more "RAM" [it uses the SD card as "internal" memory] - I like to keep a lot of apps installed.)
