Apparently ALK have shown a G1 running copilot. If you google for ALK Android and sat nav a few things pop up. If this did come out it may well push me to get one.

There is a company called TeleNav apparently offering turn-by-turn for the android platform.

There's AndNav2, but it's not quite polished enough to compete with the likes of Tomtom yet.

Thanks a lot for this, i took a 30-day trial for the telenav software in my T-Mobile Touch (uk t-mobile version of hero and magic) it's an excellent app, just like a stand alone tom tom. It has UK maps and many other european countries (I tested it in UK only). It works on G1, Touch, and Pulse. Any one looking for a great android sat nav experience check it out.

A lot of this is rendered redundant by Google's announcement that they're introducing free turn-by-turn navigation software in Eclair:

I bought a Navman satellite navigation few months ago. Use it regularly. It cost me £ 150. Tonight when I walk, was awarded the satellite cell had the windshield windshield and navigation and flew off the screen. Sat Nav is still running and shows all but one side of the screen responds when pressed.
