Google Maps Navigation reviews

Google – master of the universe – as you know came up with their own, completely free GPS navigation program, Google Maps Navigation. There are a few reviews around and we thought we could share them with you:

gadgeteer: Mostly positive review but the down sides are screen size, voice quality, and of course data access…

A nice fix would be for the navigation to load in all the maps for the route, so I don’t need to sweat the connectivity. Every network has holes, I assume Verizon has far fewer, but it is still annoying.

pocketnow has an 8 minute video review:

gizmodo loves the voice search, and text-to-speech, but not that impressed with regular text search or the street view:

It’s an extremely powerful program, but the execution isn’t the best. Not by a stretch.

    Completely useless if you are not on data plan which costs $30/month!

    A refurbished TomTom 130 costs just $60.
