Wow, very cool.
Google is now in the navigation biz.
But only on Android phones, not on the iPhone.
the comments about a TechCrunch article that Google’s stuff needs an internet connection:
Not so fast. This has yet to work. My mobile (Android, iPhone) has a tough time keeping a connection when driving. All on-line navigation systems that I know have failed so far.Cool features but high risk of unhappy users due to mobile data availability and roaming issues.
Wow, that would be awesome if it is true. Personally, I am very happy that the TomTom car kit for the iPhone
Google said that when you plan your route, it precaches map data for that route to help alleviate this problem.
is available in Canada now.
I would hope that the enhanced GPS antenna would be of benefit to *any* GPS-using app and not just TomTom’s app.
