Is there a GPS navigation app that does voice recognition?

This is the only thing I miss from my Android phone. On my Android phone, I could hold the search key and say, out loud, "navigate to 123 main street" or "navigate to the nearest drugstore" or "navigate to John's house" ... and Google Nav would open and begin navigating. Does anything voice-activated like that exist for iPhone? [more inside]

Navigation without data connection on Android

I used to have an app on my Nokia E71 that would allow me to set waypoints and then provide a distance and bearing back to that position using the phone's built-in GPS. You could store thousands of GPS waypoints, either by using your current location or by entering long-lat; and organise waypoints into groups. There was no need for any data access. Does something like this exist on Android (HTC Desire)? What I'm not looking for is an offline SatNav program like CoPilot or MobileNavigator.

How to upgrade in-car navigation system?

How to upgrade in-car navigation system? We have a 2008 Toyota Landcruiser which came with in-built satnav. An upgrade disc here in New Zealand will cost $800!! This seems like a ridiculous rip-off.

Navigation hack on WDTV?

Movie navigation hack on WDTV? I have a WDTV HD media player (not the more recent WDTV Live) and would like to know if there is a firmware hack that will allow faster navigation through a movie, ie skip forward or backward a defined amount of time with a button press. There is a hack called Enlightenment v2 for the newer WDTV Live that seems to offer that feature. Would it work to flash that firmware onto my earlier model WDTV HD?

Zoomable GPS

Zoomable GPS: my last car had built in nav that I never used for finding locations, but found real useful for exploring & driving in unfamiliar areas - I'd just turn it on and use it as a live moving map. Now I have a new car with no nav so I'm shopping for a system, but the ones I've seen in Target appear to be more oriented to route finding and don't have a very good perspective/ too high a zoom level for assessing the surroundings on the move. Is there one available that I can use for exploring in this way?

How to have exactly the same navigation, the same themes, and yet different backgrounds for three blogs on the same website?

I'd like to have a wordpress website with basically three sections, each blogs. Each must have the same layout, same theme, same navigation, but the background image must be different for each blog. Also, I'd like each blog to have links to each of the others. So, the navigation bar at the top of every page would have the following: home | about | blog1 | blog2 | blog 3 | contact.
