I am using this page type in my app.  It works but there is no sound for directions, You have to just watch the blue dot as you drive, and that is not safe.  I am using an Android.

Even though this does give you a placement on the map where a location is, this is not mean to be your main GPS navigation when you're driving. But it more less is for to pinpoint locations of a businesses and other locations you select to be on the map.
