Sorry, but not for 10 bucks a month. I'll stick to a real GPS unit. I'll wait for jailbreak for my 3GS and xGPS

The same software is available for the Palm Pre with two differences: 1) It is free (included in the standard phone plans), and 2) it runs concurrently with any other apps you want to have running at the same time.
