Yeah, I said it, Google is going to kill TomTom and Garmin. After viewing the demo of Google Maps on Google’s Android 2.0, and realizing that it’s going to be free, Garmin and TomTom are going to be in serious trouble.
No real competitor was on the market for Map Navigation and now Google has jumped into the fray with it’s own Map Navigation software and the worst (good) thing about it is that it’s going to be free.
Sidenote: Garmin and TomTom today took huge hits in shares this morning upon Google’s arrival into the market.
Garmin and TomTom should be afraid. Very afraid.
