Turn-by-turn GPS arrives on the iphone; I've tried it and it works pretty well. The main attraction though is not the Satnav, but the fact that you can now download the maps to the phone memory saving on exorbitant 3G roaming charges.

The only catch is that you will need a jailbroken iPhone, Apple clearly don't want this anywhere near their Appstore.
Nice to see that the new version is out. I've been following developments at xGPS for a while now. The absence of a decent navigation program is one thing that has been keeping me away from getting an iPhone. The question is now how much space one needs to store these maps offline. Since the map images are not vector-based, I imagine that it would it would take quite a lot of space to have, say, all (or even part) of Switzerland.
