I'm using 2008 and was thinking about upgrading to 2009. The image in the first pic looks more GPS-ie to me.
I like the 2008, and on my 7" screen it's very usable. I hacked the registry to lose the 2 side menus and the top bars. So all that shows is the bottom strip with turns and directions and stuff, and even that can be minimzed.
Even got it to embed into RR.
