I suggest we all ask those companies whether they will support Maemo.
Does anybody know their email adresses or phone numbers for such inquiries?

TomTom is based on Linux, so it should not be difficult to port it.

Sygic Drive for Symbian is amazing application with very good maps. If the maemo port is as good as that and cheap, it will surelly be the first application for maemo I will buy.

Well, we shall see if this app uses all that Fremantle has to offer or is just a "pound to fit and paint to match" port.

I rarely use turn by turn as 98% of my driving is over the same ol' routes. Real time traffic input and re-routing capabilities is what I do need.

It is good to see commercial software becoming available.

Thanks for the heads up Titan

We get it - you like Google Navigation Software. I doubt they'll be in a hurry to produce a maemo version.

We have Google live traffic layer now in Maemo Mapper. I use it everyday with my 810 and before that an N800 with a Holux BT GPS.

Nothing beats an app that dynamically re-routes if the live traffic information warrants it.

...But most of all, nothing beats an OS that allows you to build an app yourself.
