I've used the Google Maps Navigator on my G1 on a few trips now and it is amazing. Using the satellite imagery layer is very useful - it's a much better user experience and more interesting than the boring old cartoony type graphics on traditional sat navs. I also particularly like the way it automatically zooms in at junctions to show you a close-up so you know what to expect - very handy at confusing roundabouts, etc.
The only niggle is that the maximum volume setting on the G1 still isn't quite loud enough and the female voice is a bit robotic, and places a strange emphasis on certain words; "streeeet", for example!

Haven't tried that one yet - but get Google Sky Map - worth the price of admission alone

We were sat in the garden last night and I installed skymap. It's amazing, will be playing with it a lot I think.
