If the prospect of spending north of $200 on a GPS add on (aka TomTom) for your iPhone or iPod touch has you little shaken fear not, for there is a semi-reasonable solution. Arriving in stores later this month is the Dual Electronics XGPS300 GPS Cradle for the iPod Touch.
For $179.99 it not only adds GPS to your iPod Touch but includes NavAtlas’ turn-by-turn navigation app, a rechargeable battery, speaker, audio out, mini USB port and windshield cradle. The app itself is free and available at the iTunes app store. But before all you cheap skates rush off to download it, note that the application works exclusively with Dual Electronics’ cradle.
Or you could just hope and pray that Google releases their free nav app to the iPhone and some how Apple approves it.
