    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!

    Anyone used compass mode when in Google street view yet? If not try it That is one cool app When you have it on, hold the phone up and turn 360 degrees

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