Google Maps Navigation - Don't Follow the Little Blue Line! Print E-mail

Writing good software is tough.  I know that.  It took me months of after-hours development just to get a simple little Android utility completed that controls a phone's power-saving features using the orientation of the device (see this link for information about Screebl).

I just downloaded the new Google Maps that includes navigation control.  Google maps has a long way to go to get this application ready for prime time.  They're not kidding when they warn you that the application is in beta, and you should use caution when following the provided directions.  See the screen capture below for an example.  Whatever you do, don't blindly follow the blue line!
