    I am really hoping I wasnt imagining this but I am sure I saw a youtube video of a sat nav app running on android where the app used the phones camera to get a live picture of the road ahead and overlayed the route onto it. Anyone? Or was it a different phone entirely?

    Was it not just Google's Navigation using street view?

    No, it was definitely a sat nav type app. I thought it might be that but then remember it was 'live' action. If that makes sense (UI);)

    Thanks Frank, another one here YouTube - AugSatNav

    Just checked their site and you can download it on the Market Place, do a search for Augsatnav (no spaces)

    EDIT - Just tried it and it seems to work if you select the map and find where you want to go and select it on the map. Havent got it to work by typing in an address yet

    That looks pretty nice. It at least shows the potential for this sort of thing. I will run it next to my Tomtom tomorrow and see how it behaves.

    Good potential but seems a bit unnecessary - looks complicated and cluttered. I'll stick with Tomtom.
