The likes of TomTom say they've already got Sat Nav software ready to roll on iPhone but developers are facing a few hurdles. First up there's the odd legal issue - who gets sued when your iPhone tells you to drive into a lake - and secondly there are some firmware tweaks needed to the iPhone's GPS.
Well, looks like that last problem just got sorted. Reports are that a beta version of iPhone OS 2.1 is being sent to developers. Among the changes are new GPS features including the ability to track direction and speed of movement - kind of handy when it comes to telling you which way to turn and when.
The downside is that a new OS version so soon will probably send current jailbreaking efforts back to square one - pushing that elusive iPhone 3G network unlock further down the tracks.
