    it's included out of the box... without messing with the settings, i was able to get from Pt. A to Pt. B.

    however, i think it needs some tweaking, it's not as intuitive as a standalone GPS out-of-the-box

    You turn on the maps, hit the menu button and go to directions. put the place you want to go and then hit navigate. I think thats just as simple if not simpler then the ones out of the box.

    Well you can add the satellite view either way, but yeah navi doesn't start until you enter directions on where you want to go.
