    Wow. That is really nice. Especially the voice search and street view.

    That totally shreds the iPhone apps and puts a big +1 in the Android column.

    I guess one option to get this in the car would be to run the Andriod 2.0 emulator and install the Google Navigation app. Sort of a band-aid solution until something better comes out. I'm definitely on this. I have been using Amaze GPS on my WM phone and have been thinking of trying to emulate to CarPC, using a WM emulator but this Google app looks way better.

    internet in the car is the holy grail of car computing. I'm convinced the days of non connected IVI systems are numbered.

    Install Android on your CarPC and then the Google Nav App.

    this means you can run android apps on LinuxICE!!

    Sucks though it's emulated...

    Do you think its a coincidence that google maps terms of service prohibit anyone from using google maps for in vehicle navigation-without paying per use licensing costs.....and then google releases an in vehicle navigation app only for their OS? They're going to start using everything they can to increase androids market share.

    Hopefully, im wrong but I don't see a chance in hell that this will make it to any other platform except via emulation. Even then I wouldn't be surprised if Google tries to stop that.

    I suppose this depends on Google's business model. Do they really want to make money off of Androids, or the knowledge of what people do with their mobile phones. I would think that it is the latter and that a business model for free nav is not too far behind.

    Seeing the videos of Droid in action, especially the way it automagically goes into a car mode when in a car cradle, thought this was an awsome setup. It blows away iguidance for sure.

    This article says they are trying to bring this to the iphone also:
