Re: Just bought a Samsung Vibrant instead

Samsung Vibrant is nice but one of the issues IÔÇÖve seen with it so far is that the GPS is just horrible. The Vibrant takes forever to lock onto a GPS signal and when it does, it sometimes shows my location incorrectly.I fix it many time but and also use software but its not work properly.i think ...

Re: Just bought a Samsung Vibrant instead

I haven't noticed any problems with the gps, although I have heard about them. Perhaps 2.2 fixed that issue, but I'll let you know if they become a problem. Then again, its better ryan no gps.

Just bought a Samsung Vibrant instead

I got tired of playing Archos' waiting game and, based on the low quality of their products in the past, I didn't want to get sucke dup into it again. So I found a slightly used Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile's Galaxy S phone) on craigslist for $200 (it's better than an Archos 43 IMHO and cheaper too). I...

selling my DVR station

Hey guys, My A5 broke a few months ago (I have no intentions of sending it back to Archos because the warranty is over, so I disassembled it for parts) and I have no use for the DVR station anymore. If anyone is interested, here's the ebay listing: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=...

Galaxy Player not coming to the US?

From what I've been reading as of late, it seems that the Galaxy Player won't be coming to the US...what a pity.

Samsung Player vs Samsung Player 50?

Can somebody explain what the difference between the Samsung Player and the Samsung Player 50 is? So many articles on the internet seem to mix the two up interchangeably without explaining the difference. Like Archos, Samsung does us no favors with their odd name nomenclature. Thanks!

Re: What would you like to ask Archos at CES?

You mentioned something about an ereader, it sounds interesting. First of all, does it feature an E-INK display or something similar? That's the most important thing for me because reading off of an LCD screen for more than an hour bothers my eyes; but I have a whole bunch of PDF's I would like to r...

Re: a70 or ziio7

from my experience, Creative makes a much better product; but then again, this is their first shot at any internet tablet, let alone an Android tablet, so I don't know how good it is. You can already upgrade the Archos to 2.2 through a firmware update, I haven't heard anything about a 2.2 update for...

Re: What would you like to ask Archos at CES?

Will they release a hard drive based 43 or similar sized device? If not, how much longer will they be supporting the 5IT and will they upgrade it to Android 2.2? If not, I'm going to have to go with the Galaxy Player when it comes out in the spring, Although I know little about it; so far it seems t...

Re: Samsung 4" Galaxy Player

Re: Should i wait for Samsung Galaxy media player or....

I'm going to wait until CES at the very least. Sure the Samsung will be a lot more, but they're a name brand company with a much better reputation than Archos. If they release a 64GB model or a 32GB with a micro SD slot, I'll wait it out. Maybe another company show something promising at CES too. Ei...

Re: Samsung 4" Galaxy Player

This is great news to me. I would still like something with some more storage, but I guess I'll have to compromise somewhere. At least Samsung is a name brand company unlike Archos. I'd trade the lack of storage for a decent standard of reliability any day. Besides, the only high capacity Gen 8 Arch...

Re: So much 7" and 10", no smaller competitor?

It seems as though they don't understand that not everybody can afford a dataplan. I suppose most people don't use more than 16GB of space too.

If your cellphone has a GPS function, then yes, it's possible. BTW, equinox returned zero results. http://www.gsmarena.com/ ok, that's good news then Here's my phone. i don't know why it returned zero results. http://reviews.cnet.com/cell-phones/sony-ericsson-equinox-tm717/4505-6454_7-33809299.html

Bluetooth GPS Tethering

I have read about several people buying external GPS receivers that they pair with their Archos in order to use it as a GPS. Rather than spending extra money and carrying another device around, is it possible to use a cellphone as a GPS receiver instead? I don't have a fancy phone, just a plain-old ...

Ok, so since I'm using a good old-fashioned flip-phone (I' probably one of the few computer engineering majors with a simple phone lol), a Sony Ericsson Equinox, I suppose this is out of the question for me.

Would there perhaps be a way to utilize a cellphone's integrated GPS with the Archos rather than carrying another thing around with me?

Take a chill pill, Froyo only came out yesterday; don't expect a hack overnight. If you're so impatient start working on it yourself.

Now that 2.2 is here, what did they fix?

I'm still debating whether or not I should get a 43. What bugs did they fix with 2.2 and do those fixes work well? Are there any problems it created?
