Buying A Burner Smarthphone For A Week In London

Here at home in the US, my wife and I are quite used to using Google Maps on our smartphones to help us get around in unfamiliar places on vacation, but we know we won't be able to use our regular phones when out and about in London. We've been thinking about buying an inexpensive Android phone once in the UK entirely for the purpose of using Google Maps to help us get around. is this a good idea, and, if you think so, where would you go to get one?

Can I use Google GPS Navigation and TMobile to drive cross country?

I plan to drive from NYC to the Black Hills in South Dakota and Devil's Tower in Wyoming in a few months. I have a Nexus One Android Phone and service with Tmobile. How realistic is it to expect to use Google's free GPS Navigation with Tmobile's coverage along this trip?

Big Brother me, please.

Using the BlackBerry 8830 on Sprint, what software is available to upload my exact, current location (via internal GPS) to a custom Google Map every X number of seconds? Similar to what this guy did.

What is this location I spotted from Google maps?

Does anyone know what this facility is (google satellite image, Action, California.) It looks like a nursery, or something similar, but I'm trying to get more specifics for a hiking guide I'm working on (without taking the long, long drive out there.)
