Yeah--I want maps even when there's no signal to connect to Google! I'm pretty sure TomTom said they are working on GPS software for iPhone, and Apple said they expect it (but didn't say from who).<br><br>So far, though, even the included GPS software has proven VERY useful, mounted to my dash. It has gotten me out of some real urban mazes, and I've never found a dead spot where the map data can't keep up. Such places do exist, though!<br><br>And I really like the satellite imagery. I hope when "real" GPS solutions come out, they can still pull down a satellite overlay from the 'net when a connection is available. (Obviously all that image data could not fit locally in the kind of detail we get on the iPhone now.)<br><br>It would also be cool if you could specify how much (which areas) of the TomTom data to include locally, and then have TomTom's software rely on the 'net to pull down data when you drive outside your specified areas. It would save a lot of space on the phone, and I can predict what cities I'll be in, usually!<br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
