Re: Using NDrive with bluetooth GPS

Post by toniolol »

Hi,
I try NDrive and Sygic Aura but I can't have full speak instructions on both.
It started speak and didn't continue.
I'm on Froyo.

Do you have the same issue ?

I'm actually looking forward to the announced Google Maps 5.0 for vector based 3D maps and offline caching. Then we won't have to worry about the other navigation apps.

It looks like Google didn't embed any address data in their maps, so even though the map can be cached for offline use, you can only search for addresses or directions if you have an Internet connection. Caching is a step in the right direction, but it's still far from being good for offline navigation.
I'm still searching for a good offline navigation app for the Archos. Aura and Ndrive both have issues with not finishing sentences and Copilot has audio popping, garbled screen issues if rotated or minimized, and freezes randomly.
Has anyone found a good offline navigation solution for the Archos yet?
