Turn by turn voice navigation is one of the most requested features for the iPhone, yet neither Apple nor other software developers have released any iPhone applications that add this feature to the iPhone so far, despite the demand for the feature. But turn by turn voice navigation is now accessible on jailbroken iPhones, thanks to xGPS. xGPS is a realtime GPS navigation software and the latest version is version 1.2 that has been recently released. This version has support for voice instructions as well as other new features. The navigation is based on Google maps data. xGPS can be obtained for free via Cydia.

Apple today announced it sold its one millionth iPhone 3G on Sunday, just three days after its launch on Friday, July 11. iPhone 3G is now available in 21 countries — Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the US — and will go on sale in France on July 17.

“iPhone 3G had a stunning opening weekend,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “It took 74 days to sell the first one million original iPhones, so the new iPhone 3G is clearly off to a great start around the world.”

The new iPhone 3G combines all the revolutionary features of iPhone plus 3G networking that is twice as fast, built-in GPS for expanded location-based mobile services, and iPhone 2.0 software which includes support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and runs over 800 third party applications available through the new App Store. In the US, the new iPhone 3G is priced at just $199 for the 8GB model, and $299 for the 16GB model.
