Re: First Impressions - update and recomendation

Actually half the screen has lost touch sensitivity after it broke. The bottom half of the screen is not responding to any input. It is also impossible to recalibrate, since the recalibration command can no longer be accessed. Maybe if I hook it up to a PC via USB cable something can be done... My f...

Re: First Impressions

Update: Screen broke after the unit served as a toy for a young toddler for many hours. It actually survived being tossed on the floor countless times without damage, but finally acquired a long crack across the screen. Still works fine though. Also, I confirm again that battery life is very long - ...

Re: First Impressions - Upodate

Battery life seems huge, still going strong and far far from needing a charge, even after copying some files and viewing some videos.

As for getting video out cables? Not that easy. I am now considering ordering them from the Archos Store for Ôé¼10.

Re: WiFi signal????

I just don't understand this thing... My WiFi signal on everything in the house is full bar... On my Archos 5... 1 bar sometimes 2... It's been that way since day one. It just makes internet browsing very sluggish to say the least. My experience is different - the WiFi reception on my 5it is just a...

First Impressions

Ok, I have the device for one day now and can make some preliminary comments. Throughout the post always keep in mind that I paid Ôé¼87 for this device. You go try and purchase an iPod for that kind of money and come back to read this post with the proper perspective. Also keep in mind that my needs...

Re: Heads-up Portugal

I just opened the box to handle the unit. It feels solid and hefty, with very smooth surfaces and no buttons. I was expecting a micro B USB plug but it is a mini B plug instead - oh well... at least the cable is included. Then again, the Tom Tom in my car is also mini USB, so one less charging cable...

Your opinion matters! 2010 Nominations

I have had a very hard time looking up information on apps for the a5it, its all dispersed all over the forum, wiki and other blogs, and a lot of it is out of date. So I thought it would be a good idea to poll the community since a lot of us have had our devices for a long time now and have tried ma...

Re: Firmware Version 2.0.38/1.9.26 released - reports bugs h

Thanks sweetypie, you are very helpful. Yes, the wiki needs some updates. If Copilot had real time traffic info for my location (Lisbon, Portugal), I wouldn't even hesitate and might even root my device if I had too (whatever that means - I am not even close to being a hacker or anything). As it is ...

No, I'm in the UK. Copilot is available for the whole of Europe - you can download the Europe version of the app from the ALK website here: http://www.alk.eu.com/copilotlive/androidinstall/ You do have to buy it though, to get a licence. The maps are downloaded within the app. Thanks for that... I ...

  • The a5it gets a froyo update

Re: Firmware Version 2.0.38/1.9.26 released - reports bugs h

Ok guys, so can we summarize differences? 2.0.38: 3D acceleration -> (does this mean no 3D games or lower quality 3D games?) full screen mode capability -> many apps prompt for full screen shorter battery life -> charge device more often higher memory use -> less space available for apps 1.9.26 no 3...
