Google Maps new "Global Localization" is a form of augmented reality that combines street view data with GPS position and your phone's camera to determine exactly where you are and what direction you are facing. It's only pilot program for now, but it gets around phone's notoriously bad compass orientation, and can give you super accurate turn-by-turn directions when you're on foot in a new city.
