iPhone 3G GPS cannot support turn-by-turn, says Pogue

In David Pogues' review of the iPhone 3G:

Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do with the G.P.S. According to Apple, the iPhone’s G.P.S. antenna is much too small to emulate the turn-by-turn navigation of a G.P.S. unit for a vehicle, for example.

Bummer.
