Question A GPS software that actually works on the 8900?

Please Login to Remove!

Any suggestions? Recommendations?

I used Mapquest Navigator on the 8320, worked beautifully.

Can't get anything to work on the 8900 except for Google Maps, which is just, not good.

Anyone else have any working solution with voice guidance that's actually good on the 8900?

Thank you!

BBMaps isn't bad, but I've gotten so used to the voice prompts and all the goodies of Mapquest Navigator.

Is there no alternative just yet?

Very cool! I never knew about this. Of course, very rough around the edges, and nothing compared to the TeleNav or SatNav applications, but definitely something extremely useful and not to mention FREE.

Thanks pal, appreciate it.

Is there any other GPS software out there yet for the 8900? I can't get anything to work: Garmin, MapQuest Navigator, TelNav. Sucks.

AmazeGPS really sucks, now that I've been using it for a few days.

Need a decent GPS software with voice guidance.

Any help?

Just tried it. I'm mainly looking for something really user-friendly. Usually these are have-to-pay software. I had MapQuest Navigator on the 8320, amazing. Not a single complaint.

Just can't seem to find a good GPS software for 8900 yet. Perhaps a few more weeks? I hate this part of getting the newest device out there. Sucks!
