Google executives confirmed that the company will soon be delivering turn-by-turn directions to the iPhone. Previously, this free feature was only available to Android smartphone users. This is obviously bad news for GPS hardware companies like TomTom and Magellan who have their own iPhone apps.
While the official release date is unknown, historically Google has released their products not long after an announcement. Although there was no mention of the iPad at the press conference, but it seems logical to assume the feature would be available on both devices.
