    I also wish it would show MPH. I miss that from my TomTom.

    Another TomTom feature that I miss in Google Maps is toll road avoidance. That's huge.

    I wish it had it too. Not necessary but cool to have especially since speedometers can become inacurate over time.

    There are a few things I miss that I use regularly on my Garmin.

    1. ETA - I hate the minutes to arrival
    2. MPH
    3. Being able to mark a point "anywhere"
    4. Distance to destination

    My GPS units have a "Data Screen" with a lot of cool info on time, distances, speed, etc. This would be a nice addition

    There are a few more that I can't think of right now. They tend to come up when I am using it and I try to do something that I am used to doing on the Garmin.

    I chalked it up to it being an app on a phone and not a standalone GPS. It has all the basic features and seems to work pretty well. However, if more options could be added, I would not complain.

    found an app the other day...amazingly its called Speedometer by tracklive or something like that. works great. you will have to hold the speed steady for a few seconds for it to register it. my speedo is WAY off on my R1 i need a speedohealer badly haha.
    plus this app maps out the route you took going over it step by step and shows your speed at each interval. pretty damned sweet if ya ask me....and no I'm not the maker of the app

    Google Navigation is brand new and still in beta (although most things that Google releases stays in beta for a long time). I'm sure they will add some of these features in due time.

    Google maps shows MPH

    I know that on the Droid 2 google maps does show the current speed while also showing the map. It seems pretty accurate too. I don't know if they've updated this for other models or not, just know it works for D2 at least while in car dock anyways.

    My Wife has a DX and my Son has a D2...
    I've never even thought to see if their GMaps had a speedometer...

    I also wish that GMaps would list the speed limits on the roads you are on.
    My TomTom did this, it must already be in a database...
