Google Maps & GPS

Dear Google,
Now that you've figured out how to integrate GPS into GPS enabled phones, how's about throwing some geek love towards those of us with java-enabled smartphones that can tether to a bluetooth GPS Receiver? How many more lines of code would that need? I do have to say that Google Maps on my phone is pretty sweet, and that it really helped me out yesterday when the wife wasn't completely sure where the DSW Shoe Warehouse was while we were driving through the endless suburbs or Maryland. So it would be double sweet if my phone could just start barking orders to me and I wouldn't have to pay an arm and a leg for it. Thanks.
