Google Maps Navigation
This technology, soon available for Android 2.0 phones for free, is pretty amazing. With all the features based on Google Maps that you can imagine, it has the potential to suppress all other mobile GPS systems. The most pressing issues connected with such a choice are fees for the transferred data, especially when you're abroad (which can be very expensive).
I kind of feel that these things are actually cheap for the providers and they should soon become cheap for the consumers. That's surely an example of an international issue where I would expect the European Union to help to erase the borders off the maps.
