Voice-activated GPS coming to Pre 3?

Sometimes it pays to read the footnotes: On Palm's new Pre 3 promo page, it says,

"Rushing from a meeting to a dinner reservation? Use GPS to find the fastest way.4"

And what does footnote 4 tell us?

"4. Within wireless coverage area only. Voice-activated, as-you-go, turn-by-turn directions sold separately."

(our emphasis)

As with much about yesterday's announcements, the specific details of this new feature (vendor, pricing, etc.) are lacking. Still, we're excited about the possibility, and look forward to finding out more.
