Default Yahoo G0 2.0 (Beta) for 8830.

I'm not a fanboy for Yahoo but I saw this article on Download Squad. It's about the new Yahoo Go 2.0 (Beta) application and I was pleasantly surprised. It has a nice GPS application with POI's, Maps, Directions etc. It also has Weather, Search, Flickr, RSS, News, E-Mail integration etc. Here's the link to the article nice detailed review. It works very well on the Telus network and runs pretty fast.

On the road and at home with Yahoo Go 2.0 - Download Squad

I will add more input the more I get to play with the application.

It's been out for a while now. There are many other threads on Yahoo! Go on this forum.

I really like it but I find it really has problems connecting to satellites compared to bb maps. Does anyone else have this problem?

actually i find the exact opposite, i find it connects and downloads the map data faster and more smoothly than google maps.- but thats on the 8800..

I find it downloads the maps faster and updates my location way faster that google but its just getting my initial location that is frustrating.
