    It works quite well, even though I haven't got the Google Maps Navigation to work, FC every time. May I suggest you put the paid version on your android phone so the server stays on longer than 5 minutes, free version server shuts down, but put the free version on the tablet since the client stays on indefinitately. If anyone knows a trick to get the Google Maps Navigation working, I'd love to know, or a good voice turn by turn nav app.

    I think you need the latest service framework to get it to work. You can get the latest framework from cyangenmod's website.

    I went to the website, but couldn't find the coby, just a viewsonic G tab. Does it use the same service framework? If you could provide a link that would be awesome.

    Well I found a newer version of the google services framework, 2.3, but I can't get it to load. Any helpful suggestions? I really want to use Google maps Navigation.

    Try these Google services and I also uploaded google navigation that works with these services. Hope it helps.
    P.S Uninstall previous Google services before installing these.
