    You'll be able to do that with 3.0.
    But turn-by-turn doesn't even exist yet...

    I understand that, what I'm looking to send is just a text with directions he can read, like if I want to send it to my sons Razr who doesnt have a data plan just sms..

    I suppose you could take snapshot(s) of the directions, and email them to your friend. Don't know what to do if you want to send them to people w/o email on their phones, though. :(

    If he can get picture messages you can send him the snapshots that way. Just look up what the pix message email addresses are for his carrier.

    What you can do is download the AOL AIM application, where you can send him a message as an SMS instead of an AOL screenname. I think he has to reply "a" to accept the message when you send it, but otherwise that's a good option.

    Yeah just take a snapshot of the directions and send them via MMS when 3.0 comes out :D

    His son might need the directions asap, and you might have to take 2-3 pictures to get all the directions. Either way, I'm really hoping that 3.0 is polished to the brink, that's when I'll definitely get unlimited messaging, being stuck with 200 a month seems impossible to get through!

    You have to specify how many turning you have to skip...

    Here first skip 12 turnings...
    Then make a U turn...
    Then skip 3 turnings...
    Then turn left...
    Then skip 3 turnings ...
