MotionX has released an update adding iOS 4 background navigation to its subscription-based navigation app for the iPhone and iPod touch. When running on multitasking capable iOS 4 devices, MotionX GPS Drive 5.0 now provides routing and live guidance in the background, including live voice directions while running other applications. The update also provides improved accuracy of GPS location information when connected to a power source. MotionX GPS Drive is available from the App Store for $1 and includes 30 days of real-time routing with Live Voice Guidance. After the initial 30-day trial period, users may continue using the other navigation features of the application or purchase a subscription for $3/month or $25/year to continue using Live Voice Guidance.

Since the Touch doesn’t have GPS, how can this app work with it?

Not very well, by default.  The iPod touch does have Wi-Fi based location services, but this is generally not accurate enough for turn-by-turn navigation.

The iPod touch can be used with third-party GPS adapters or docks such as the TomTom and Magellan car kits, which work to provide GPS capabilities for just about any third-party GPS app.
