  • iPhone Maps to get Turn-by-turn Voice Navigation via Cydia Tweak


    A new Cydia tweak that will allow iPhone users to get turn-by-turn voice navigation directly from Apple's native Google Maps app. This feature has been available for Android for quite some time, but iPhone users have been relying completely on third-party apps, some of which are quite expensive (but offer an extensive list of features.) Services such as MapQuest also offer turn-by-turn navigation, but having voice navigation built-in to the phone's native app would be a very nice addition for users.

    The tweak is "coming soon" to the Cydia store. There's no word as to how much the app will cost. This feature is one of the most talked-about feature for operating systems such as android. Having this tweak would create yet another valuable reason to jailbreak your iPhone.

    We can only hope that this tweak will only be a temporary solution. Hopefully Apple can bring this feature to iOS natively in a future software update. We'll just have to wait and see. For now, enjoy the preview video.

      If Apple do implement this it won't be at least until iOS5, possibly/probably later. Folders were available on 2.0, yet Apple didn't implement them until iOS4

      As always, Cydia improves something that apple sucks at doing.

      I'm using a free App called skobbler right now from the AppStore. It is ok... for some reason it likes to take me on some strange routes sometimes. A native program that would work with google maps would be great!!

      I'll just stick with tom-tom it does the job for me. It's a nice thought, shoulda been put in along time ago by apple.

      Stop giving credits to Cydia. Cydia doesn't improve ****. The dev that worked on the features improve them.

      It's cool but doesn't compete against Navigon. Navigon is the best.

      I hope it's Brian Johnson of ACDC that gives the turn-by-turn directions.

      good maybe Apple will incorporate this in one of their future releases so the people in Cupertino will be able to follow directions on how to get their head out of their ***. They should embrace the JB community it's where all te good ideas are coming from.

      Seems like a good tweak, already have Navigon so not sure I'll get or not depending on price. I wish Google would just release an app for the iPhone, I thought I read they were working on it but that was months ago.

      Why embrace when you can profit from it?

      I don't think anyone can judge this good bad or how far up or down the scale it is until its out for us to test. People who refuse to try new things are in my eyes ignorant. If you don't try it you'll never know what you have or what you were missing cheers.

      Please don't quote my post when it comes to marriage. Lol. That research needs to be done once ahead of time lol
