I just downloaded a GPS app for my Ipad.  Standard GPS app, navigation, 
streets, etc etc etc.  But it was FREE!  Because it's based on 
openstreetmap data.

Thanks Richard and everyone else for working so hard on the data and the 
project.  Turning map data from something completely closed and 
proprietary into something completely open and consumer-level useable is 
one of the biggest successes in open source in recent history.
