What is iPod-iWay? iPod-iWay is a powerful step-by-step directions saving tool that will export online driving directions from results by Yahoo Maps and import them into your iPod Photo. Itís an easy solution for getting Yahoo Map directions saved and displayed onto any iPod Photo or Nano, and without the need of additional software!

Are y'all ever behind. I've been controlling all of the earth's satelites with my iPod for weeks now. Lemme know who wants to catch all of the Patrot's games this season. I could hook you up.

Okay, but it sounded cool, yes?

Nice idea, but downloading a zip file is going to be painful. They ideally need to let you add it to a podcast feed. (e.g. as embedded artwork).

This is astounding!! Not the technology as much as Yahoo! having *anything* working with an Apple product :)

I have been working on some code to grab the image from a Yahoo map, using the API. It also generates driving directions. It saves the text mode driving directions and the URL to a text file, which is then beamed, manually, to my mobile phone using Bluetooth. Search my blog for "GPS" to find out more.
