Directions and Navigation

One of my favorite features of the Galaxy Tab is the integration of the built-in GPS feature and Google Maps (and Google Navigation). Forget getting lost now!

With my Galaxy Tab, I can now access both driving and walking instructions from Point A to Point B. I get satellite views (see Figure 4) and traffic reports; and I can even get real-time ATM, gas station, hotel, and restaurant listings displayed on the maps as well.

Another nice feature is the ability to access directions from place to place even when there's no WiFi or 3G data service—the apps are able to work offline and are surprisingly accurate! And if you're driving, the Navigation app even allows you to speak your destination…leaving your hands on the steering wheel and offering you verbal directions (that can also be turned off).
