iPod iWay providing maps for iPod and nano

iPod iWay are offering a service that packages Yahoo Maps driving directions for display on the iPod or iPod nano.

The proceedure is to enter your source and destination addresses, which you can then preview to check that the directions are OK. When satisfied, you then select the "get directions" button, which packages them up into a zip file which you down load, and unzip into your iTunes folder, from where it is transferred to the iPod. The directions are a series of GIF images, comprising the text directions converted to images, along with the turn images that Yahoo already provide.

The service could be improved in a number of ways:
However, the biggest drawback is outside of iWays' control - Yahoo Maps only offers directions for USA and Canada!
