    "whats taking so long?"

    The US is fairly larger then Japan. >_>

    Last I heard Sony is bringing the GPS to the States. I'm sure the reason it took so long was the size of the US itself.
    Sadly I was hoping for it by the end of the year, but it doesn't look like it.

    Your best option for now is to get the GPS unit (import) and use the Map This! homebrew program. I use it, does the job very well.

    wiki
    Almost a year after the 1seg trial started, the purpose of the service is still unclear. Mobile reception is difficult, especially in a moving vehicle/train, as the signal quality deteriorates quickly even at speeds around 20 km/h (12 mph). This leaves the majority of the target audience for this service unable to receive it. In-car reception requires use of diversity antenna and increases receiver complexity and price.

    Handheld 1seg receivers generally do not work well at all in moving cars or trains, even when held by a window because the signal drops out every few seconds. There is minimal or no reception in trains that are underground, or go inside buildings, such as most of the commuter trains in Tokyo. In addition, long distance trains, especially the shinkansen, move from one service area to another in a matter of minutes, making it impossible to view a program to completion before having to scan for a new set of channels and find whatever local channel may be broadcasting the program in question.

    Handheld 1seg receivers work well inside homes, although it may be necessary to be near a window and/or adjust the antenna for reception. However, a home user can watch HDTV on a large screen TV instead of a 320x180 small screen 1seg.

    Even though 1seg signals are not encrypted, some receiver manufacturers have chosen to apply DRM to recorded files, preventing users from viewing or editing the recording in third party software.[1]
    also 1seg is only in japan i think .. 1seg.com

    "1seg" is a digital terrestrial broadcasting services for movable bodies such as mobile telephones, PC and a car navigation system with receiver ability. The services started on April 1st, 2006. Originally it was called "one segment broadcast" as technical naming, offically named as "1 Seg" in September, 2005 by association of ground digital broadcasting promotion.


     A Japanese terrestrial digital broadcasting format divides one channel into 13 "segments" (division). Among these 13 division, 12 segments are used for television transmission and 1 segment for movable bodies. It bundles up 4 or 12 segments to transmit picture, sound, and data of TV . All 12 remaining segments, except one for 1seg, are necessary to send out much information by high vision broadcast (HDTV), but normal broadcast (SDTV) needs only 4 segments so usually three different programs with one channel can be broadcast at the same time.


     Because it is small, a band can transmit only a low resolution picture of *240 pixels QVGA(320) size, but a description of information by BML is possible, and a data broadcasting part makes use of a characteristic of a handheld unit, and expectation gathers when it is possible for new trials such as cooperation with an E-mail and a schedule book, position information with GPS that a handheld unit has.

     For the moment, it is broadcast Simultaneously, it is considered to broadcast other contents in the future.
