    Google maps works better for me than my $250 GPS, now if only Google can do the turn by turn

    If you haven't checked out Trapster yet, do it--it's really useful, and not just for road trips.
    Even if you're not a speeder, it's handy to know where other folks are likely to be slamming on their brakes with no notice.

    http://trapster.com is the best!
    Now you can't say that the internet is only for watching youTube - here is a real example for some social good activity :)

    Perfectly fine, for the small minority of car buyers who actually own the hallowed iPhone. And for the rest of us ? ? ?

    This is a great article! I use google maps all the time on my i-phone. It is better than the nav system in my car. I just downloaded trapster.
    Looking forward to more updates!

    There is an app I've heard of that actually helps you find your car in a parking garage -- I forget the name of it, though.

    it's been around for awhile, but still incredibly useful - like the other apps you describe but still think G Maps is at the core of most useful apps. now, everyone, write some reviews!!

    Especially in Virginia, D.C., or in a commercial vehicle, where detectors are still illegal, Trapster is a great (but potentially distracting) solution.

    Carputers, in-car broadband, GPS devices and other car gadgets are great, but with all of them - who has time to watch the road?!
