Are there any android phones or providers anyone can recommend when up in the mountains? I can get GPS using my Nexus One but unable to do turn by turn or even send my location for my records, what do you guys do when out in the wilderness?

I never saw a need for turn by turn in the wilderness.
But for everything else I use the Cabelas Recon app on my Droid X when I'm out with the phone. It works really well. My primary GPS though is a Garmin Oregon with the topo maps...
If you see a need to actually send a location, get a SPOT - they come highly recommended and are proven to actually work, unlike some app.

Yup as BT said tje cabelas recon app works great and the Backpacker GPS trails pro also works great when you are off the beaten path, but remember to download the maps to the sd card on your phone before going to your spot or you will be SOL.....
