When using the GPS the map doesn't follow the blue dot... Do you think there will be an update that actually tracks your location, instead of zooming out and panning around to keep up? Also, Do you think there will ever be an update with audio directions?

Mine follows the blue dot....

As for the "audio instructions" that you're asking for, there are two GPS companies that are reportedly creating traditional turn-by-turn software for the iPhone. So it's coming eventually.

I know sometimes when travelling fast the gps has more trouble with keeping a good point on you. Also if the roads are close then it might have trouble keeping track of what road your on.

Also, I've never been in an area where the traffic function was clickable.

While tracking if you use your fingers to zoom in it will zoom to the spot you select and stay there. If you start tracking and don't touch it it will follow the dot.

When you hit the current location button in the bottom left corner, it will follow your location. Just don't touch the map screen or it will center on where you touch!

This is not true...

Also the gps does not keep track of what road you're on...
It just gets your location and puts the point on the map... So it should not make a difference no matter how close two roads are.
