Exclamation google navigation. bye bye garmin and tomtom.

We apologize for being fanish, but Google has pulled off something with its new Navigation elements in Google Maps (or is it Google Maps in a Navigation app? It's hard to tell) that has serious ramifications for a navigation device industry used to charging money for functionality.

I've got enough people telling me where to go, I don't need machines doing it too.

I like that you can set it up to use satellite imagery instead of just a regular map like all the other GPS units.

I have it on my g1 and works pretty nice, it even shows you a street view when you arrive at your destination.

I'll tell you google is the new skynet.
