Perhaps the best feature in Android 2.0, however, is the free Google Maps Navigation app for turn-by-turn directions. While driving directions via Google Maps have been available on many mobile devices for years (on Apple's iPhone and iPod devices, for example), Google Maps Navigation raises the ante by adding spoken turn-by-turn direction, something available only with extra-cost additions to the iPhone. Google Maps Navigation has many useful features, but one of the coolest is the ability to see your route in 3D satellite view. You can search for your destination by typing or speaking, and Maps Navigation will start giving you directions.
