Its not only proceeding quickly, I am beginning to wonder how Garmin will stay relevant.
On the newest software version of my Iphone, the resident road navigation app will now announce turn by turn directions just like a Garmin or Tom Tom (but for free). Further, you can ask Siri to find something for you and it will automatically load directions into the nav app and take you there.
I did exactly that to get to a business dinner with a colleague. I get in the passenger seat and he asks if I know how to get to a place we had been before. I only knew the name of it. I pressed the Siri button and simply said, "need directions to Austins". Siri replied that she had found an Austin's restaurant about x miles from here and did I want that one. I said yes, and turn by turn came right out. All were amazed.
