Yes, and google maps won't automatically go to the next step in the direction, you have to press the "3" key after you make the turn, merge, etc.
I honestly think the only thing google maps and a gps are good for is finding your current location when you find the directions initially. After that, GPS support is pointless.
There are other solutions out there. The 4 mapping programs I have on my 8820 right now are: Nav4All, BBMaps, Telenav and Google Maps. Nav4All will do audible turn by turns, but thinking about it now, I haven't even tried it out yet. Still within my Telenav free trial. At this point, Telenav is my software of choice, really is great. Unless Nav4All lives up to Telenav standards (which I haven't determined yet), Telenav is worth the $10/mo.
