Motorola Droid X :: Google Navigator And Another Application - Destination Info Gone?

Sep 7, 2010

Am I doing something wrong? If I am using Google Maps/Navigator - happily following along as my car wends it's way down the street and I have to exit to say, answer a phone call, look at another app. when I go back into Navigator my destination info is gone. I have to re-enter my destination.

HTC Incredible :: Way To View Navigator Without Setting A Destination?

May 5, 2010

Is there a way to view the navigator without setting a destination. My old Garmin just had a map view and you could see "nav mode" while just driving around. I don't see an option for this with google nav.

Motorola Droid X :: Car Dock With Google Navigator - Stops Charging

Aug 8, 2010

Just got back from a 500 mile road trip. I was using the Droid X car dock and Google Navigator. I noticed that about after 15 minutes the phone would no longer be actively charging (the lightning bolt icon in the battery was not displaying). Within two hours the battery was depleted. I know Navigator is still in beta.

Android :: Launching Google Maps And Navigator From Application

Aug 18, 2010

I have an android application which allows the user to open up google maps or navigator to show a certain address. This functionality was working in the past, but now I get the following error and the app crashes:
ERROR/AndroidRuntime(2165):
android.content.ActivityNotFoundException:
No Activity found to handle Intent { act=android.intent.action.VIEW
dat=google.navigation:q=MCNAMARA+TERMINAL+ROMULUS+MI+48174 }

The two intents I'm using are-

1) For Map:
String uri = "geo:0,0?q=MCNAMARA+TERMINAL+ROMULUS+MI+48174";
Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse(uri));
startActivity(i);

2) For Navigator:
String uri = "google.navigation:q=MCNAMARA+TERMINAL+ROMULUS+MI+48174";
Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse(uri));
startActivity(i);

Motorola Droid :: Google Navigation Showing Navigation W/o Destination

Nov 3, 2009

Can anyone confirm if Google Navigation can be used to just show your progress/location on a road while driving, without having to have an actual destination input?I know this was shown on a few of Rob's videos as not being possible, but just wanted to confirm if anyone had any further info on it.

Motorola Droid :: One Concerned Google Has Too Much Personal Info Via DROID?

Nov 27, 2009

Don't get me wrong, I think its great what they are doing by integrating search with all the "smartphone features", along with trying to bust up the Mirosoft entrenchment, but it seems like they can potentially have access to too much personal info. I know much, if not all of Google access can be turned off, but if you want to use the phone to its fullest, everything you do can be stored/monitored on a Google server.

- If you want to transfer contacts from a non Android phone, list has to go to Google for conversion (Exchange excluded).they know who you associate with.

- Turn on GPS, use for application and search assistance.they know where you are.

- Create custom maps and use Nav they know your habits and where you're going.

- Calendar they know when you're going to go.

- Use search/browse history to aid Google in helping you find what you're looking for they know what you like.

- GDocs, stored online they know what you're working on.

- "Backup my settings".they know how you use your phone, and copies of personal files store on the phone (full flash of phone and SD card, still got wallpaper back then some?).

- You want a decent POP3 mail app, "have" to use Gmail they have all your personal email.

I understand that being able to get free "stuff", there has to be some sort of give/take, but working in IT and being the cynic that I am, I can't help but think that this phone was rolled out more for Google's benefit than ours (read, Data Mining).But I'm more concerned about a security breach given that so much personal info is stored in one spot.

HTC Droid Eris :: Google Navigator - Battery Usage Tip

May 16, 2010

I did some testing with the Navigator yesterday and I have to say it's absolutely awesome. I'm not sure if anyone has posted this, couldn't find any mention of it, but I want to share my battery usage experience with it as well as some other cool things I noticed.

Very cool battery saver:
I used it for a 15-minute drive, keeping it only in the Notification Bar. When you are in the Navigation app, you can press the Home softkey to go back to your home screen. This keeps Navigator working in the background, but it is not drawing the maps and using the screen. You can press the Power button to put your phone to sleep, and the voice actually still talks to you and tells you when to turn. And even better, I started this trip with 76% battery and ended with 76% battery.

Now, the not-so-cool.
I used it for a 30-minute drive, keeping the screen on and letting it show me the map the entire way. I started the drive with 54% battery ended with 34% battery. So definitely keep it on the charger if you are using it for a long drive. But another awesome thing I noticed. I made a phone call toward the end of my destination, just to see what would happen. I used the Home key to back out of the Navigator (but keeping it in the background, as I said above), then made my call as normal. The Navigator still gave me directions while I was on the phone. It came through the earpiece now, so the other person doesn't hear it. How freaking cool is that?

Motorola Droid :: Adjusting Destination Locations?

Nov 13, 2009

I am used to being able to take my current position on a map or point to a position and set it as a contact's position. I can't seem to figure out how to do this on the DROID.Even though it is still a bit buggy (beta and all),I love the application, but I have noticed that specific addresses can be off by a block or two.I would like to be able to tell the phone that the correct position of this address is here.

with no success too :/

Android :: What's Difference Between Google Navigator And Google Navigation?

Aug 3, 2010

A client of mine also has an Eris and I was helping her get her navigation system set up and teach her how to use it. I wanted to put the google navigator icon (the blue arrow) on her home screen but could not find it anywhere in her apps. I did find the google navigation (map icon) app and set that up for her. So, my questions are: What is the difference between the two? How come I couldn't find the navigator app on her phone (on mine, it's under "programs")?

Motorola Droid :: Multitask While Using Navigator?

Nov 8, 2009

I used the navigation function in the "car home" app this weekend for the first time. The nav. worked great. Voice directions were clear and actually helpful for a change and the gps kept a lock on me. However, I had to make a call to tell my friend I was going to be a little late, only to find out after the call ended that navigation was lost. Luckily, I remembered the address and re-started navigation. So two things, I suppose: 1) Can you easily recall previous destinations? 2) Is there a specific way to make/receive calls while using the app? I noticed if I use use the back button and go through the car app (contacts, voice search) I can get back and forth from nav. to phone pretty well. But it still doesn't seem right.

Android :: Google Navigator - Voice Not Functional

May 17, 2010

I have a Droid Eris running OTA 2.1. I just tried using Google Navigator for the first time this morning. When I ran it it led me to install the text to speech app. Unfortunately, I had my SD card mounted (for music in my car) at the time and the install failed. I dropped out, un-mounted the card, manually installed the app, and re-started Google Nav. I have no sound in it at all now. It is not muted, and the nav volume is at max. I have heard it work on my wife's phone. The nav software was my main reason for getting an Android phone. Does anyone have any suggestions or am I going to have to factory reset?

HTC Droid Eris :: Incorrect Application Info Associations / What To Try

Jun 9, 2010

I first noticed a problem when trying to launch the Weather app on my 2.1 equipped Droid Eris. Had it for about a week now. The app crashes every time. Things I have tried:

- hard reset of the phone
- remove battery
- reset Sense to defaults
- cleared application data/cache from weather apps

I was going to try this last one again when I noticed something very very weird. When I got to Manage Applications, and click on "Weather" it actually takes me to the application info for Quickoffice! It now seems like all the weather apps (and some others) are messed up. If I click on "HTC Weather Wallpaper" it takes me to application info for Visual Voicemail. " HTC Weather sync provider" gives me app info for Clock Widget. If I click on Clock Widget, I get info for Mabilo Wallpapers (app from store). What the heck is goin on here....

Any suggestions on what to try? I have searched Google and the various forums extensively and cant find any instances of other people having this issue.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Pressing Home Opens Navigator Application

Aug 3, 2010

I am tonight at a party and a good friend asked to use my phone for the music I've got on it (16g class 4 SDHC updated twice a week ). I after a long conversation of "If you break my sh-- I will have to kick someone's butt." I gave it to her and she plugged it in. Long story short, somehow it was knocked off the table and into a puddle of what I will, for lack of a better word, call fluid. I assume it was beer but still am unsure. Now, I've dried it out using the "Rice Trick" and leaving it on top of the heater vent, put the battery back in turned it back on and the screen was totally un-responsive. I tried a battery pull to see if that would fix it, but to no avail, it was still un-responsive. I then tried the factory reset (Home+Back+Tap Power>Clear>Reset). Now when the phone boots up and everything loads, Navigator will load and start up all on it's own and when I press the Home button Navigator starts up again. Tried the factory Reset again and the same problem. I was going to just re load the 2.27.651.5 from sprint (I never deleted it from my PC when it first dropped) but when I connected my Hero to my PC it wouldn't detect the Hero, It would charge, but not Mount/Sync/Share.
