Google Maps becomes Google Sat Nav (for free!)

Google Maps (maps.google.com) was a revelation when it was launched and they soon followed with a mobile version for phones and pocket PCs.
For a while, you have been able to request directions but it wasn't designed to be used "in car" as it didn't have voice instructions and the features you'd expect from a Sat Nav like TomTom or Garmin.
Well, that's about to change and Google have released their "proper" Sat Nav version of Google Maps. For free. Not the time to buy shares in TomTom...
