I just returned from a short trip to San Antonio, about 300 miles one way. For the drive down and back, I used my wife's Via 1535TM and used Google maps on my iPhone to get around town. I like having the speed limit and traffic delay views available on the Via. I also like the convenience of Google (or Apple) maps on my iPhone for the shorter trips.
Which one do you prefer?
The topic of Here Navigation was posted on thread http://www.poi-factory.com/node/44232 on the Viago discussion.
Wanted to start this new thread on Here Navigation for discussion.So not to distract from the Viago topic.
It appears smartphones are making obsolete more than just GPS receivers in vehicles these days.
Can the good old car radio be far behind?
This may be of interest to Waze users.
Sheriffs want popular police-tracking app disabled
Just started looking into the use of VPN when staying at hotels with open Internet connections.Has any of our members used a VPN with success and felt comfortable with it ?Getting ready to try this one out https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.freevpnint... . Also thinking about getting T-Mobile mifi if feedback not good on VPN.
In the past, I have been an ardent supporter of Waze, and even recommended it highly on this forum. It has served me well on my HTC One and LG G3. One issue I noticed was that occasionally, the sound went out. The oral directions stopped. Today, after the voice directions quit, I shut off Waze, and no sounds (ringtones, notifications) worked. The settings showed that everything was normal.
Is there any app out there that will allow me to access the POI files from POI factory on my iPhone and show them on the map near my location or route the way a Garmin does?
Just came out. Not sure of all the enhancements.
"HERE Beta", Nokia's navigation app, is now available and free for android phones at the Play Store.
If it does not show when you search for HERE Beta, then search for "nokia", click on "Z Launcher Beta", scroll to the bottom and it should appear under "More" apps by "Nokia Apps LLC".
I don't know if this app is good/bad. It used to be a paid app but now it is free. If anyone uses this app, please comment.
Is there a iOS app where I can load in my own poi's and get alerts on my phone
Over at Woot they have a refurbished Asus ME173X-A1-BL MeMO Pad 7" tablet for just $64.99. While this model is a little older it still has good specs and it would make a great unit to use for navigation by adding one of the free or low cost offline navigation apps. It does include the GPS sensor, however it is WiFi only so you would need an offline app.
Have a Garmin 3590LMT with a Samsung G4 and I am no longer receiving any traffic information on the GPS. With Bluetooth disabled I see the message "searching for signal" and checking the traffic provider in Settings it is Here (which I believe is correct). With Bluetooth enabled, I still do not receive any traffic info.
Just released, new mapping.
OK, it's time for me to spend money again. I am trying to talk my husband into a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. I have been reviewing it on line and now I need advice from the experts. You did good in telling me about the Nexus 7 so now it is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The reason I want this is to carry less with me. I always carry my smartphone, my Nexus 7 Tablet and sometimes my wifi camera.
Recently we took a trip where the Google Maps Android application showed the location of where we wanted to go. Our mobile GPS unit, a Nuvi 650, did not have that location in its database. So i had to think of a way to get the GPS Coordinates from the Nexus 6 and transfer it to the Nuvi 650.
When Apple’s third quarter earnings report came out on Monday, the tech giant celebrated strong growth largely fueled by its release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Despite the increased revenue, the new iPhone’s success may have come at the expense of one of Apple’s most established products: the iPad
When I was researching whether to get the iPhone 6 or 6+, I found a lot of websites about the specifications, comparisons to various other phones, etc., but very few articles about how they were in everyday life. So, I thought I'd offer my perspective and answer questions potential buyers might have.
