    Press menu and then press "my location" and it will follow you.

    It won't update the route automatically for you like TomTom or other GPS devices will. If you deviate from the suggested route, you will need to get it to calculate another one from 'my locatoin' to whatever destination you have.

    Hopefully this will be updated in a future release, or some third-party app will appear soon with full navigation functionality in it.

    I found and nav in the market, and it will follow you. They are working on a version 2 that will have turn by turn directions added to it. Check it out under travel. Much better than the standard map software.
