Developer links GPS to Google Maps

Australian developer Glen Murphy has created a GPS plug-in for the recently released Google Maps service. Although the tool currently requires Windows XP or 2000 (which means, of course, you need a full-size laptop hooked up to your GPS), we can easily envision a version that works with a Palm or Pocket PC PDA. While this may never take the place of dedicated mapping software, the idea of getting your GPS to interface with the Web has its appeal; we'd like to be able to go a step further and be able to, say, run a search on and have our GPS transparently plot a route to the theater without us having to punch in the adddress. What do you say, Glen?
