this phone has google maps but is it turn by turn direction?
or do i need to dl another app?

Google maps with turn by turn directions was released with Android 2.0. Droid Eris runs Android 1.5. Unfortunately, this means you will have to find another app until HTC releases an Android 2.0 update.

Which begs the question:

Does HTC plan to release an Android 2.0 upgrade for this, or will we be stuck?

HTC is releasing a 2.0 update, but they don't have a release date yet.
