    Am I correct in thinking that the new update can do Google Maps Navigation? If so how do I download it?

    Yes, you're correct...but you'll have to wait until the first quarter of 2010 for the Android 2.0+ update.

    Edit: I thought waxing meant the new Maps update...

    Google Maps Navigation (Beta)

    Google Maps Navigation is an internet-connected GPS navigation system with voice guidance. It is part of Google Maps for mobile and is available for phones with Android 1.6 and higher.

    I thought that the update was 1.6?

    Nope...this only upgrades the phone's software to 1.16.605.1...not the phone's firmware, which is currently 1.5.
