Freeware GPS Road Navigation Software

Haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but RoadNav is an open source GPS Road Navigation program that uses TIGER data to generate street maps and turn-by-turn directions, gives verbal commands, and doesn’t require an Internet connection. Also runs on Linux and Mac OS X, in addition to Windows. I usually drive alone, and it’s a *really* bad idea to use a PC-based road navigation program as the driver, so I don’t know when I’ll get around to it. If anyone tries it out, please let me know how it works for you.

Addendum from the comments: Check out this SlashGEO posting for links to other freeware road navigation solutions.

    I got this running a few years ago on my SHARP Zaurus PDA (Linux-based). It worked, and the maps were lighter weight than others. There were no voice commands then. If I wanted to use my Zaurus in the car, this is where I would start.
