I know I read somewhere that it is possible for the google map to scroll as I drive so I don't have to constantly flick the map, but I don't remember how.

Anyone know how to do this? Thanks.

Just click the locater again in the left hand corner and don't manually scroll the page. When you need to manually scroll to look ahead to find an upcoming turn go ahead but click the locater and it will find and auto-track you again.

It'll automatically do that if you select the locate me button, and its high-lighted in blue. When you drive, it'll keep moving on its own.

Edit: Once again, MileHighRob beats me again :p

Excellent! I knew it was pretty easy, I just couldn't remember how last night while I was using it.

But it doesn't actually tell you turn by turn as you are driving? you have to press arrow keys to actually know the next turn?
