Any word or rumour of Google putting one of these out?
i've used MGmaps which is pretty good but I rekon they could do a very good car navigation unit

In terms of finding your way to a specific address or street, the Google Maps for Mobile application is better than MGMaps as you can search and get directions. There is no voice guidance and it only plots from start to finish locations, it won't re-route if you go a different way.

I also find GMM gets a satellite lock quicker than MGMaps, sometimes so much so I run GMM just to get the lock then start MGMaps for the web tracking :-)

The big let down with GMM is the fact it doesn't cache maps (unless it has just started doing it?), meaning constant data movement

Yeah true but with a data plan, 3G almost everywhere and only occasional use it's OK for me.
