Verizon has been showing off its new Android based cellphone, “Droid.” Today came word it ships with turn-by-turn GPS navigation. If you buy the phone this functionality is FREE!
In other words, that GPS you have built into your dashboard or mounted-by-suction on your window–obsolete!
Google Maps Navigation is an internet-connected GPS navigation system with voice guidance. It is part of Google Maps for mobile and is available for phones with Android 2.0.
Google Maps Navigation uses your phone’s internet connection to give you the latest maps and business data.
Probably not a good day to own Tom Tom, Garmin or Magellan stock.
Word is this will be coming soon (possibly not quite as fully featured) to my iPhone. Apple and AT&T can’t afford not to.
Has there ever been a moment in history when so many game changing/industry changing events have come so quickly.
