Live Tube Map
travel the tubes of London, but always know what's above
Live Tube Map shows the progress of your journey on the London Underground as a "live" moving pointer, or small train set, positioned in correct relationship to the real map above ground, and not as per the stylised Tube diagram.
Available in each carriage as a digital display or as an iPhone app.
(in later case will only work once London Transport enable mobile phones to be fully functional on the Underground)
Yes! And it should play this music on detecting that you have gone in the tube.

More sound effects
When you enter/emerge from underground, you should hear this noise. [zen_tom, Jan 22 2011]

||It's an interesting idea that I've pondered before - mainly because of the walking time/distance from, say, Temple to Farringdon on the Circle Line (which isn't a circle at all!) is around 15 minutes, while the tube-train journey is about 20 minutes (plus getting into and out of the station, plus waiting a couple of minutes for a carriage).
