I've made a simple app for the road rule change.  It will tell you when the new rules apply dynamically
You set a route,
follow it
and listen. 

Comments welcome, but I did write this in about 2 weeks , love to be able to get it written in Java

Installed fine on a Sony Ericsson X10i.

However doesn't seem to functionally get past that point on my phone and only presents an OK button and greyed out other options.

To be fair, I didn't spend much time on it, but good luck.

In the top box you just type the address you're going to , if you are outside with gps on it will populate your current location into the from: address window, or you can type it in. Then press the green ok button,

it, will instruct you to wait ( because it really has no manners)

If successful it will say ok press the green "ready" button.

After about 30 seconds, it will tell you it's done.

Put it in your car,

Turn up the volume and prepare to be driven insane by a robot voice, and two coloured arrows overlaid onto a intersection background.
Below the canvas there is PREVIOUS and NEXT buttons , below that is a street view button of the intersection location. You can change the image direction ( prior to button push) using the compass.
