Turn by Turn for iPhone 3G coming mid December?
Ok, so I've been meaning to start using the blog for awhile and this seems like a worthy first post at the moment. I've had the iPhone 3G since the day it came out (yah...I'm one of _those_ people) and over all I'm fairly satasfied. Of the list of things I want the device to do, turn by turn nagivation is at or near the top. According to http://iphonefreakz.com/2008/12/04/app-store-real-gps-turn-by-turn-navigation-by-g-map/ and a few other sources off of Google, there is FINALLY an app that can do turn-by-turn coming out soon (mid December) via the app store, more details here http://www.xroadgps.com/Maps/GMapforiPhone/tabid/2463/Default.aspx. The site looks legitimate and they've provided screenshots as well as a support section. This seems to go against the legal issues preventing third parties to develop turn-by-turn nagivation software for the iPhones, but maybe Steve finally made a deal! Now maybe they'll figure out copy/paste and Adobe Flash support.
