since i have the iphone 3g i keep trying the current location on google maps. it would locate me but it would be like a big circle but would never get to a street or a place with a pin on it..is this normal

Are you outside or inside? The big circle is google maps locating you with cell towers....as the "pin" is actually the gps chip tracking you.
If your inside or in a covered area its just like a real GPS and may not get enough satellite signal to work.

Some times it takes a moment starts with a big circle you zoom in and it loads to a dot, either way i heard something about tom tom making an app, that would be sweet

^^They have an app....but it doesnt pass Apple's rules. So we wont see it, not right now anyways.
The reason is the use of location based turn-by-turn directions. Which is why we havent seen ANY good GPS programs.

Well in that case they should put it in cydia because that would be awesome a trully good gps for the car!
