COOL. Competetion is good. And both products look great. I can't wait to try them out.
One question for me is whether Apple allows the mapping apps to run in the background? What happens when I get a phone call or I want to check my calendar???? I have to close the app and then wait a minute for the app to re-acquire my location?

Another concern not really just of mapping but the iPhone itself. Now if I use the iPhone as my sole gps unit, how will I save transfer my favorite locations when I have upgrade the OS or restore the phone.
But that is not really a gps problem, it is an iPhone problem, but as I start to converge more and more devices, I'm loosing more and more data backup. Man, I wish there was a 3rd party iphone backup tool to backup application data.

I can also verify that it works while listening to music, I'm playing music from my phone right now while using Gmaps, I assume TomTom and Navigon will work the same.
Just got a reply from G-Map.
Their representative said that the updated 3.0 version of G-Map should launch "within a week hopefully earlier than Navigon."
For half the USA, the app runs for $24.99. So for a little over $50, you get the entire country. It'll be interesting to see how the other GPS apps will price themselves...either very competitively (in comparison to G-Map) or higher.
