A new service, iPod Directions, lets iPod users put maps and directions on their iPods.

The site, described as a “directions saving tool,” exports online driving directions from Yahoo! Maps and imports them to your iPod.

How it works:

  • Enter your starting and destination address in the online form.
  • Click ‚ÄúVerify Directions‚Äù to view and check driving directions.
  • Click ‚ÄúGet Directions‚Äù and the website will prompt you to download a ZIP file that contains your driving directions.
  • Extract the ZIP file to your iTunes Photo Folder and sync your iPod.

The process of downloading and copying the files to your iPod is straightforward, though it’s not automated.
