    this page is for the palm pre...but it works great on the iphone if you have os 3.0!

    so..this is what safari can do with google maps now that it can use the GPS!

    I'm driving to work right now. It would be really cool if it did live gps tracking but it doesn't. It's still really cool. This page was designed for the pre..performs well since it is the same resolution as the iPhone.
    Yes the link is above.

    This is awesome for a website, but kinda pointless. I'd rather use the maps app.

    yep..its pointles..
    but cool, nonetheless

    cant wait till latitude is available and WAVE


    no..but once 3.0 is out, there will be many companies coming out with their own turn-by-turn navigation apps. The companies will also provide the maps as well, so you will be able to do this offline. Im guessing there will be many options out there very soon...the first company to release a fully operational GPS app for the iphone will likely by Sygic:

    @hefeglass:

    Not to split hairs with you, but technically the first full-fledged GPS app with turn by turn and voice features is G-Map East/West.

    But I do agree that Sygic (and hopefully Telenav and maybe even TomTom) will be up next.
