Smartphones & Tablets


in anybody using android/apple/samsung pay?

Really the only reason for me is to grab the 5% reward through 3/31. Last year, Discover was doing $5/transaction, max 10. That was kind of interesting, even if you paid $1.06, they gave you $5. Seems like the cc co's want to incent users to use their phones...


Can I possibly load poi's to my iPhone 7. I have the Garmin map installed to my iPhone

I thought I would never buy a new phone

it's the full retail thing....seems like many colleagues have embraced the full retail thing. iPhone X sold out in 1 minute, and it's a $1149 phone? I cannot pay $800+ for a phone, per my conscience.

Are There Any Dash Mount Devices That Will Allow You To "Cast" Your Smartphone Display?

I was thinking that as nice as smartphone navigation is these days, it is also a hassle when you are navigating and need to use the smartphone for something else. Are there any devices currently that will allow you to "cast" your app to another display? That would allow the Google Maps display to be on the dash while the smartphone was doing something else.

Smart Phone vs Garmin navigation

There is probably already a thread for this, but I couldn't find one confused

I recently purchased a 2018 Hyundai santa fe sport. The salesman highly recommended the use of a smart phone in conjunction with GOOGLE maps for navigation (I didn't purchase the top of the line (ultimate package) which comes with a built in GARMIN-like turn by turn screen in the dash.

I have seen the future and it is now!

Android 7.1.1

For all you Samsung Galaxy Tab A owners.I got a surprise last night with getting the 7.1.1 update. Was not expecting that since I had gotten a new operating system shortly after the original purchase. So be on the look out if you have the Tab A.

Genius Maps

Is anyone using or have used Genius Maps app for your smart phone? There is a thread posted in 2014 linking to a CNET revue that was not very good. Looking for opinions since then. The reason I am asking is the 2018 Can Am Spyder has a display that works with your smart phone. It displays the app on the screen and you can control the app from the handlebar controls.

Can someone discuss both Bixby and Google Assistant... benefits of both

I'm considering getting a new Samsung phone.

It's got "BIXBY" on it. It almost sounds like iPhone Siri, but I know little about it and I've not seen a lot written about it.

Can someone discuss the Bixby's capabilities compared to Google Assistant and how BIXBY compares to Siri?

Thanks in advance

iPhone 8 vs iPhone X

Who is planning to get a new iPhone this year? Which one would you plan to get? I'm just curious

Nomorobo Beta for Android Now Available

The Nomorobo beta app for Android has just been released. Just in time for me, since my smartphone gets so many robocalls I am afraid to answer it!

The first 30 days are free and $1.99 per month after that, or $19.99 per year.

Nomorobo specializes in blocking robocalls, including spoofed callerID. The method they use to identify the spoofed callerIDs is secret.

Android Auto failure

Just got back from a trip to Disney World. I used Android Auto and my smartphone and google maps for the trip there without any problems. On the way home a week later the app would fail on the phone continuously. Luckily I was able to use my on board navigation as a work around. At a stop I googled to learn a recent update to Android Auto was the culprit.

Camsam for red light and speed camera alerts

Testing the Camsam app on android along side with Google maps and I'm finding it pretty good with alerts. Alerts the warnings on the correct side of the road traveled. Tested about a week so it's not long term but it's surpassed several other apps that I had DL'ed and uninstalled.
