    Default iPhone 3G Turn by Turn Navigation App

    Those of you with a jailbroken 3G iPhone, a new app called xGPS has been released. It's advertised as having turn by turn voice guidance by Feb 20. I havent tried it yet, but will tomorrow. Many more options than the native maps app. It has a speedometer view, and hopefully eventually a 3D view with accurate turn by turn. Check it out, looks promissing.

    Dang, I wish they have it on non-jailbroken but I have an application called Motion-X which is a pretty cool software but it lacks on turn-by-turn and map.

    they've updated this program...although it currently sounds like "Speak & Spell" when it tells you where to turn etc. It'll scare the crap out of you driving at night.

    Turn by turn navigation is supposed to be a feature included in the 3.0 update coming this summer. Unfortunately it will not utilized google maps due to legal reasons but still a nice feature for non-jailbroken phones.

    You mean it WILL utilize Google maps due to legal reasons?
    The Google Maps feature sucks for GPS because its not road based. Until its road based, I'll ALWAYS prefer my GARMIN

    The new turn by turn directions on the iPhone WILL NOT utilize Google maps. I don't use Google maps over my Garmin either, but it is convenient and a bit quicker for finding addresses and POI than the Garmin at least for me.

    I will add the Autoblog link I read about it once I have enough posts.
