    Think it'll happen? It only makes sense to expand Siri into telling you how to get places.

    This won't be useful to me until Apple allows you to assign the default GPS app designation to a third-party app. Or unless they come up with a killer native turn-by-turn solution.

    This is what I'm getting at. Siri built-into Google Maps or something.

    First Siri needs to work reliably.

    Apple needs to let Google fully implement Maps onto the iPhone as on Androids with its excellent turn by turn navigation. Only thing I still miss from Android. Well and my nice big screen. Just those two...oh and Flash. Just those things. But the only important one is turn by turn maps.

    I think the Google maps in iOS is using the web service making it
    stripped and limited. At one point Google had a real app the way it
    has for Android and Blackberry, but the last thing Apple wants are
    iOS users being served well by Google. Maybe that'll change with
    the new leadership.
