The main thing stopping us from just taking a geolocation aware browser and using Google Maps is the constant polling will result in a temporary block from Google Maps. Otherwise geolocation support + Google Maps + constant refreshing + something to vocalize the directions [e.g. gmap to gpx + flite] is pretty darn close.

It wont offer anything of what Fremantle has to offer. I doubt it being hardware accelerated (in the beginning) seeing that Sygic looks exactly the same on every platform is being offered on.
But we have a fully working and somewhat established gps navigation solution available on our devices. Cool!

I'm choosing between the N900 and either HD2 or neoTouch200 WM mobile based systems(sorry). One of the things that held me back in relation to the N900 was the lack of a good GPS app that doesn't require 3G connection. I am very pleased Sygic has released this app, and that it's so soon after the N900 announcement. Excellent. Having read a few reviews on line Sygic seems to function even better than e g Garmin XT in certain regions. Very encouraging.

I always liked Sygic on my N82, hope this version turns out to be just as good. Good to see the N900 getting commercial support.

It can be very annoying listening the name of all the streets. Voice should be only to give turn by turn navigation.

Nothing can beat something that will help you out when lost in the middle of no-where with no phone signal.
For most serious GPS nav users, the Google nav is a non-starter for that reason.

Even with Ovi Maps I believe you can download them from Nokia's server and load them onto your device.
