The basic version is already running in my car. The biggest technical problem at the moment is that it is still quite slow when calculating the route than TomTom (only slightly faster than Routebuddy). Other than that, we need to finalize our contract with TeleAtlas for map distribution.

Also, if anyone has information on how I can get use my Windows Mobile Smartphone (HTC Mogul) as a modem in OSX that would be appreciated. The reason I find it relevant is because I see that there is a web-based GPS Program and I'd also like to test the functionality of that through my phone's internet.

Must catch up when you are next in London or I'm in Amsterdam. :)
So from this I guess your problem also was the speed of the map access, right? In our case, getting the data takes about 95% of the time to calculate the route, while only 5% is spent by the routing algorithm itself. But we have now made some changes, that should improve the performance as well.
