HTC Desire :: Is GPS Reliable? Navigation

Aug 2, 2010

A reliable GPS is extremely important to me when choosing a smartphone. I want to install android based navigation software, rather than have separate units for driving and hiking. The garminfone seems overpriced given its hardware and ancient android 1.6.

Samsung's Galaxy S impressed me with its 9mm thickness, large Super AMOLED and blazing fast hummingbird processor. After learning the GPS was unreliable, I decided to further explore my #2 choice, the HTC Desire.

Please comment on how your GPS navigation has performed, specifically using igo, copilot or similar navigation software. Do you feel it is as accurate as a dedicated GPS unit?

HTC Desire :: How To Make Google Navigation More Reliable?

Jun 22, 2010

Need some advice, google maps and navigation never quite takes me to the right place, close too it but never quite there. Now near location is okay for something free, but its usually that last wee bit that you need more than anything, instead of you coming to an estate and it tells you its on the left hand side, which is the whole estate. I read in a thread here someplace about another free sat-nav that Im sure was for another phone type, but then someone in one of the other phone forums gave everyone a link into that forum to show how it works. Anyone know what I am talking about ? (most folks never do and they know me lol) or anyone know how to make the google navigation more reliable?

HTC Desire :: Reliable Method To Quickly Reboot

Oct 21, 2010

Is to enable Bluetooth Discoverable mode! In about 80% of all cases it will first hang and then - about 5 seconds later - it reboots.

Only directly after such a reboot one can set the phone discoverable without fear of another crash. Terrific!

Is there any place where could one report that bug, where Google and/or HTC would be listening?

HTC Desire :: Navigation Instructions Over Bluetooth

Sep 18, 2010

I have an HTC Desire, just upgraded to 2.2 (seems a bit slower) and I would like to have the navigation instructions routed through bluetooth to come through the car stereo speakers. Now I know this can be done with A2DP but I was wondering if it can be made to work over HFP?

Over A2DP it works but it means you cannot listen to any of the in-car sources like CD or radio as you have to have it permanently switched to bluetooth audio to hear the instructions. If it was over HFP, the car stereo would mute whatever source you were listening to so it could play the navigation instruction. Is there a way to make this work, or an app to download?

HTC Desire :: Google Maps Navigation Voice

Jul 14, 2010

Is there any way of changing the voice on these, the synthesised voice is AWFUL. Apart from not being able to pronounce English words correctly (E.g. Kew <queue> said as koo - I can't imagine what is must be like if I had to drive down Gloucester or Leicester) it's soooooo grating and harsh on my lugs.I've tried both English and American English settings but both are as bad as each other.Is there a download for new voices or one in the pipeline?I'm shocked this passed Google's quality control!

HTC Desire :: Impressed With The Google Maps / Navigation

May 24, 2010

I am REALLY impressed with the google maps navigation on my Desire, I have a TomTom and pay for maps quarterly and it's up to date but still does not know about the 4 new roads where i live and one is a few miles long. However Google Navigation knew about the new roads (1 extra before i knew, let alone tomtom)

How can they offer such great navigation for free when i have just paid ?74 for my tom tom map update and it's still out of date.! if htc/google can fix the issue of calls via blutooth whilst using HTC desire for navigation i tell you TOMTOM are history and thats hard to say after all these years!

HTC Desire :: Google Street View Navigation

Jul 2, 2010

Just updated google maps via the market place to version 4.3 and i admit the answer is no doubt staring me in the face but on a earlier version of the said "app" you had the option to use street view while navigating. My question is "where is it gone" as for some reason when i now try to navigate to a destination that option is missing.

HTC Desire :: Whats Happened To My Google Navigation Voice?

Sep 26, 2010

I used Google turn by turn navigation yesterday (first time for a while), and the voice was giving the road names as full numbers rather than the digits. (e.g. the "A" four thousand and fifty five, rather than the "A" four O five five), I know it used to do this when the app came out, but I thought they had fixed it. Does anyone know why its reverted to saying the full number rather than digits ? Using Android Froyo 2.10.405.2

HTC Desire :: Google Maps Navigation Application Not Working

May 22, 2010

I live in Sweden and the application is on my phone, but does not work. That is odd because it doesn't seem like it would be that difficult to do, especially if Google Maps already gives turn-by-turn directions. I'm guessing it might have to do with the language or pronunciation of the streets. I don't mind using it in English, though.

HTC Desire :: Google Navigation And Data Usage While Roaming?

Jun 10, 2010

I am taking a holiday to South West France (Nantes Area) in July and hope to use Google Navigation but I am a bit concerned about data usage. I am on t-mobile 3gb limit but that won't apply as soon as I go out of UK coverage,bearing in mind $5.00 per a MB I could use a a lot of MBs to make a 200 mile journey. What my main concerns are,

1. Although I can set up Google to navigate to where I am going at home, will it cache the route but if I exit Google Nav is the route deleted.
2. Would it be best to buy a euro data bundle from t-mobile,I don't intend using the phone for anything else,apart from perhaps an odd call or text.
3. Try another Navigation app,have tried Andnav2 but can't seem to extract the maps onto my phone and have tried it where I live and it wanted to send me a longer route down country lanes rather than the direct route.
4. Buy a French PAYG SIM card with some data allowance,could be difficult as my French is not that fluent!
5. Buy a Navigation app such as Destinator 9,don't really want to pay for something like that. Perhaps I could get away with the trial period.
6. Scrap the whole idea and use some thing like mapdroid,or just buy a road map.

I just want to get to my destination without paying a fortune or running up a huge bill without knowing it.

HTC Desire : Latest Google Maps/Navigation Update

Aug 5, 2010

Navigation will work fine initially, but the next time I go to use and I enter in a destination, it just stays on the "calculating route" (or whatever it says) screen. I have to go into Applications - Maps and clear the data there, then restart and it works fine then, but it's a bit of a ball ache because that clears the list of previous destinations. Anyone else having the same problem? It was fine before the update, but I don't know if it's a Froyo issue or an issue with the map update as I updated them both on the same day.

HTC Desire :: Google Maps Navigation Taking Long Time To Calculate Route?

Aug 16, 2010

Before I updated to android 2.2 and updated to latest Googlemaps the navigation was perfect. It calculated the route in seconds and was a joy to use. Since the updates, it is taking ages to calculate route, so long in fact that I exit the programme and start again, and then I just give up and dig out my atlas.
