Mapquest iPhone app turn by turn directions

Google threw the GPS industry on its head when they announced free turn-by-turn directions for their Android mapping application.  Now, Mapquest is following suit and has updated their free iPhone app to include the same feature.  And get this, if you miss a turn the app will automatically reroute you with the push of a button.  I have yet to use it, but I have high hopes.

So this begs the question: when Google will update their Google Maps application on the iPhone to include the same features as found on the Android platform?  If Mapquest can do it and get approved I don’t see why Google can’t.
