HTC Droid Eris : No Voice Output On Google Maps

Feb 2, 2010

How come there is no voice output on Google maps, turn by turn like a regular gps normally has? Is it just me or just the way they did it? Any "upgrades" (free) for Google Maps default app?

HTC Droid Eris :: Eris And Google Maps My Location

Nov 22, 2009

I recently purchased a Droid Eris for my wife. When you start Google Maps on her phone it pins "My Location" as somewhere in Northern India. Additionally, the weather HTC clock/weather widget on the home screen is showing weather for that location. The only way that I can get it to detect the correct location is to turn turn off cellular/wifi location detection and use gps exclusively. I have seen one or two posts on the Verizon forums claiming that the Eris is incapable of determining location using the cellular network and will only work with gps outdoors. I have looked through the forums here but can't seem to find any similar posts. Is anyone else having this problem with the Eris or could it possibly be a problem with this particular phone? I am hoping it is just this phone in which case I can take it back and exchange it for another one. After showing her so many different apps on my Droid that use location detection to give local information, it would be a shame if these will only work outdoors with a clear view of the sky.

HTC Droid Eris :: Need 2.1 Bugs With Google Voice / Google Listen?

May 16, 2010

I have searched around for an answer to these two issues, but haven't been able to find anything. After doing the manual upgrade to 2.1 OTA, most everything is fine. However, Google Voice and Google Listen are having issues. Google Voice is giving me a Force Close message every time I receive a text message in Hand cent SMS (to my non-GV number). I don't actually use GV on my voice all that often. Google Listen seems to have lost all trace of any of my pod casts, including new ones that have come in since the update. Every episode on every pod cast has, just under the title: "Error (sd card/com.goggle.android.apps.listen/downloads/e55bee71)" The string of letters and numbers on each one is different. I used Astor File Manager to look in this folder and each of those files is not there. Some of these folders were downloaded a month ago (I'm a little slow in getting to some pod casts) and some I have listened to already pre update but still getting the error now. Some that I have listened to are not giving the error. And any that were downloaded after the update are giving the error.

Android :: Google Maps Voice

May 25, 2010

Is there a different voice synthesiser that can be used for google maps navigation? To start with her mispronunciations and bizarre inflections were a source of amusement but now it is doing everyone's head in. I think I'd rather have Stephen Hawking than this deranged ladybot.

HTC Droid Eris :: GPS / Google Maps Not Working?

Jan 18, 2010

After working well for the first month or so, it looks like GPS is not working very well for me. I'm not sure what changed. I now, when using the locate feature in Google Maps, often find myself in the middle of the Pacific off the Social shore. I usually try to remain on land when possible, though. Or it my randomly 'telephonist' me a few hundred yards off in some direction, then I'm back withing seconds. But a lot of the time it's not able to really locate me well at all. I think the network locating is doing 'k', but GPS is failing pretty bad lately. The icon shows GPS working, and I try disabling and re-enabling it. But that doesn't help. Anyone else having issues with GPS accuracy? Any apps that can help 'fine-tune' the GPS?

HTC Droid Eris :: No GPS/BSOD In Google Maps

Jun 17, 2010

I.e.: 50% bug, dialer issues, no sound bug, 2.1 OTA update probs, etc. Despite this, I'm really liking my phone. One positive aspect out of all this has been that I've gone from knowing absolutely nothing about the ins and outs of the Android OS, to feeling really comfortable and relatively knowledgeable (I pick this stuff up quick). And I think I really like Android, arguably more than the iPhone OS.

One of the things that has worked very consistently is the GPS and maps functions. I've been using them together quite a bit and continue to marvel at how well the Maps and Navigator apps have worked with the GPS antenna. Anyone who's had a Verizon smartphone over the last few years (BlackBerry, Palm Pre) can probably feel me with the GPS _never_ working.

A few hours ago, I turned on the GPS antenna and loaded maps, and it took a far longer time than usual to lock on to my location in an area it has found me in with no problem before today. Eventually (a couple of minutes probably), it displayed my little blue triangle avatar, but the background went completely blue. It stayed blue as I zoomed in and out, quit maps, force closed the app, reset the phone both by powering down and by pulling the battery, uninstalled and reinstalled from the store, and disabling all the "labs" buttons. I might have done a couple other things I don't recall, but I think that covers it.

Also, trying the GPS in the only other app I use with GPS--Weather Bug--didn't yield any results either. It was updating the data, but not the location. I haven't downloaded/installed any apps for a couple of days.

Android :: Naviguating Using GPS And Voice Through Google Maps

Jun 7, 2010

Google Maps looks like a good alternative to naviguate using my HTC Desire's GPS. The fact is that I would like my route to be explained in some vocal way (better for driving, isn't it?).I already have Speaking Pad from `IDEAL Group, Inc.' installed. This application lets me type some text and let the HTC Desire litteraly `say' (pronounce) it. Thus, I already have the good vocal libraries, and I do not understand why I do not have the speaking ability in my Google Maps.

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 Droid :: Google Maps Not Working On Rooted Eris 2.1

May 24, 2010

So as the handle suggests I need step by step directions to do anything involving a computer. I took a jump by rooting my eris, and now I have a problem and don't know how to fix it! which is frustrating, but it is exactly the reason why I rooted in the first place! To have a reason to learn this stuff! So here I am reaching for help. The problem with my phone is that when I open google maps and type two or three characters on it it force closes on me. 50% of the reason to get this phone was for google maps. It could replace a gps with longer battery life than 4 hours which means I can leave the house and ride all day without having to plug it in. Any way I have tried turning off the phone, turning it back on, and clearing the settings on the application then turning it off again. still I get a force close message. It is using 2.1, but I am not sure which version it is using. would updating to a newer rom like 2.1 v3 help? if so how would I go about it?

HTC Droid Eris :: Google Maps Using 90 Percent Of The Battery

Apr 8, 2010

When i check my battery usage its saying that Maps has been using 90 percent of the battery. Its been doing this the last couple days even with me charging it at night. I didnt use maps at all today and its not showing up in my app manager as running, or a newly downloaded task killer. Its not really affecting my battery life which is weird and doesnt make sense. So i was just wondering if anyone else was having this problem(sorta more like inconvienence)?

HTC Droid Eris :: Alternate Route In Google Maps

Feb 26, 2010

Looking through the searches I can't seem to find anyone who has asked this question before and maybe this is being addressed with the 2.1 update. When I'm in the Google Maps application and I've entered my start and end point the route it give me is on a toll road or a highway I know to be very slow because of traffic. I know that when I'm using my computer for directions I can drag the line to add a via point / alternate route. Is there a way to do this in the current Google Maps on the HTC Droid Eris?

HTC Droid Eris :: Google Maps On 2.1 (Alternate Route)

Mar 8, 2010

I was playing with Google Maps after the 2.1 update and on one occasion for a trip a screen came up that listed (3) different routes with the total miles and time for each route. One was for I295, one for I95, and one was for US202. Since then I can't seem to replicate that screen. Any answers? Suggestions? UPDATE: Found the answer. After selecting Navigate for a route, click Menu and a screen will come up with (3) symbols on the bottom. Left most one is the Symbol for Navigate, the symbol with a couple of arrows is the one to PRESS. This will give alternate route info that you can select. UPDATE AGAIN When I tried again, the option I mentioned above was grayed out and no longer works. I'm not sure what is going on.
