Default cheap a$$ GPS adapter and Telenav on the pearl = sweet

Please Login to Remove!

I just got a craptastic $49 bluetooth gps reciever and I have to say the pearls GPS functionality is pretty darn cool. I just need a car mount that charges via the contacts on the back so I can set it in and not worry about running out of batteries (that and a bluetooth car kit so the voice comes through my stereo ^_^). Anyone know of a mount like this?

edit: I use telenav not intellinav as the title states. Sorry for the mixup

this is awesome... is that the cheapest GPS you were able to find? i currently have a high-end GPS device left over from my Army days, but it doesn't have bluetooth or any other way of connecting to the 8100 i'd like to get some in-car nav functionality, but not break the bank...

I have a data plan so I don't know if telenav will work without it, I would guess that it wouldn't though. I bet there is other software that doesn't need a dataplan though, just a GPS reciever.

I like telenav a lot, its got a ton of features (including audible turn by turn and automatic recalculation of directions if you go off course) it's $9/month though which is a downside.

Edit: I use Telenav, not intelinav sorry for the confusion!

That is the only plan telenav offers ;P. I just like the features better than the built in bbmaps app. Mostly, the audible turn by turn and recalculation. If I can find another program that does the same thing without the monthly payment I'd be all over it.

Also, This GPS reciever doesn't use SiRFIII it uses Nemerix.

Ok, I found it. I went through the 'Buy It' steps, and the 8100 is not listed.

anyone able to get the trial activated for this program? I sent the sms message to the number listed but didn't get the code back. I think, since its a UK number, it's not working.

That shouldn't matter. As long you don't get a message back saying that it was undeliverable. It might just take a while for them to respond.
