    for anyone who missed it.
    this app is great

    "InfoSpace, which owns the Dogpile meta Web search site, is set to launch on Monday a Java interface for its mobile search offerings. The service, already in use in WAP (wireless application protocol)-enabled phones, uses a global positioning system to automatically locate where the phone user is and offers up information specific to that area. It integrates search with maps, driving directions and other information, such as movie times."

    Turn by turn directions (spoken), and find stuff near you

    I downloaded it OTA. I'll try the guidance tomorrow. If this works, it'll be sweet.

    NO, it doesn't know where you are currently at if you are
    using turn by turn directions. You have to "download" the next
    step in the location finding adventure. It goes off of what
    original location you set to the destination location.

    So who is better Tom or Jennifer?

    As of now it is only for US carriers.

    It does utilize the GPS for the 8800 (or its supposed to, I don't have one)

    I love it!
