The data and the mapping application are really two diffrent products.

The real freedom of choice comes from having a mapping application
that can use data from any provider, wether its commercial or open

I think eventually, OSM will be the way to go, but until then its not
usable by everybody. A huge benefit is the ability to update
routes/maps quickly. In Minneapolis, my Garmin device keeps routing me
over the 35w bridge that collapsed last fall. But since they release
map updates about once a year, The new bridge will be in place by the
time they change that route. With OSM data, that route could be
quickly updated.
