Google Maps Navigiation for Android 2.0 is for Free [video]

Isn’t it always frustrating how dumb GPS navigation systems tend to be? How disconnected and pedantic they can be when you are trying to find a place? Well the all mighty Google is once again promising the moon, and it seems like they might just be able to deliver.

Google Maps Navigation (Beta), is an internet-connected GPS navigation system that provides turn-by-turn voice guidance, voice and simple English search and up-to-date traffic information a long with many other features. The catch is that it will only be available on Android 2.0 but its completely free. So TomTom, I think this is checkmate! Or not?

I think I would buy the phone if only to use it as a GPS device.

What do you think? Would you consider buying an Android 2.0?

    We've been going on for hundreds of years without a GPS device or the options it provides. I don't think I would buy a phone just to be able to have free GPS access!
