    Looks and works promising, bit buggy tho.

    Driving directions for example, if I'm not on a road while setting up the destination, I'll get an error:

    The Departure address needs to be entered manually.


    Anyway does the job better than Google Maps (turn-bu-turn working, map rotating, speed, offline map downloading).

    Looking forward for next months, which I believe will bring some competitors to the Nav "scene" :)

    Hmm... did you ever.. ? I mean.... did you ? Didn't you liked it... ? Wasn't this... great ? Fantastic ? "This is great (...)", quoting S. Jobs. :)

    PS. Talking about JB by the way.

    PS 2. "Cydia is pending approval for the AppStore" = Community demands changes in Apple Terms & Conditions for adding apps to AppStore ;p

    PS 3. There were some rumors lately, that turn-by-turn isn't possible... well, in AppStore it's not.

    i used it locally and it does work pretty well. i could not really get the directions to work properly, but the speedo is pretty accurate. its about +- 3 mph.

    When playing with directions, put where "Current Position" is, your current post code or address and then your Destination. Looks like it has a problem with "naming" your current GPS location.

    1. doesn't work if you're in the parking lot, you have to be on a street. (for starting current gps location)
    2. no tolerance at all, the iphone show that i'm off to the side of the road a little bit it gave me a couple of wrong way warning and then kick me out of turn by turn mode.
    3. speedometer changes up to 10mph constantly

    hope next version will be better. still fun to show it off to my non-jb friends :D
