ABIresearch claims on 25 February 2008 “User-Generated Content Will Be a Key Component of Maps, Navigation, and Location-Based Service“:

“As connected PNDs, handset-based pedestrian navigation, and location-based services begin to emerge,” concludes [Dominique] Bonte, “user-generated location content will become a key component that permits companies to enhance their services with real-time information in a cost-effective way that strengthens their communities and brand names. Initiatives like GyPSii may ultimately reach a status comparable with existing social networking sites, such as Facebook and MySpace.”
