And I'm not sure, but maybe you haven't been in school long enough to learn the difference between literal and figurative descriptions. I guess I need to repeat, I used extreme "figurative" descriptions to get the point of liability across. If you still don't get it, you can contact Apple or read the Terms of the SDK. And let's be clear on one thing, its not what "I" said, its what Apple stipulated.
Thanks for coming out.
EDIT: In case you're unable to locate the information and did ask for elaboration. Article 8 of the SDK states: Location data provided by any Service is for basic navigational purposes only, and is not intended to be relied upon in situations where precise location information is needed or where erroneous, inaccurate or incomplete location data may lead to death, personal injury, personal or environmental damage.
Now you tell me, does TomTom meet or not meet this requirement?

"Apple's iPod and iPhone marketing head Greg Joswiak recently sat down with AppScout to clear up some of the confusion. Greg says that Apple has an internal priority list of features for the iPhone, and that the company went as far down the list with the 3G as it could -- and that copy / paste support simply didn't make the cut. Similarly, there are no technical issues preventing turn-by-turn directions, just other "complicated issues" (read: legal agreements) that need to be sorted out, and Josiwak expects developers to "amaze us." as things "evolve."
It will happen. As soon as everyone feels like they are in a comfortable enough position to be able to point fingers when things go wrong.

Liebeck v. McDonald's Restaurants - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As for the subject, the current SDK ToS does not allow Turn-by-Turn directions, and until anything is confirmed everything is a rumor (there are rumors of companies working closely with Apple on making Turn-by-Turn Nav applications).
[Edit: Also, amusingly enough, there have been reports of people following their GPS a little too closely]

its an urban legend too...snopes.com: Cruise Control as Auto Pilot
Snopes.com is the best place to find out if something is real or fake....like the hundreds of emails your friends and family send you about outrageous events.

The iphone will have turn-by-turn eventually but i dont see it happening anytime soon. As for liabilty, usually the software waives it and defers it to the hardware. Hence all the warning messages when you use TomTom on a Tilt or something similiar. As for SDK there are ways around it that is why Navteq has said they are confident in bringing turn by turn to the iphone

Haha, I was being facetious I don't really care about case numbers, but when someone goes on a rant like that, I like them to put their money where their mouth is.
I think if turn by turn does come, it'll be from Apple itself. But I guess we'll see.Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

I want a built in NASA satellite in mine. I'm looking to get GPS with turn by turn directions on the moon. Anything less and I hate Apple.

My feeling on the matter is that you were too quick to answer my post (a simple click and check would have given you the case number).

Yes, it would have been easier for me to post the case number, but like I said the case number means nothing to most people.
I didn't mean to get in this silly argument that santiagodraco and you were having. :P
