    Free amAze GPS with Voice Command



    I just installed amAze GPS (http://www.amazegps.com/) on my 8800.

    Getting it to work
    1. OTA download from their site didn't work out (error 500).
    2. Downloaded the app to my pc and installed it without problems using the apploader.
    3. When you first launch the app you need to login or create a new user (this is best done from the site, it's free)
    4. Next you encounter a 8800 bug, it says to hit the P-key to start, but it's actually the O-key (they brought it over from the Pearl incorrectly, it's still beta for the 8800)

    First test runs
    - Maps load a bit slow on GPRS because they are very detailed. Seems to work just OK on EDGE though.
    - You can choose between map view and arrow view. Arrow view loads quicker and consumes less of your dataplan
    - GPS positioning is fast (faster than BB maps or Google maps)
    - Routing works really well and accurate.
    - Route recalculation is fast.
    - Voice commands are very clear.

    Conclusion
    This is a great free GPS app with voice commands and recalculating capabilities.
    There are a few extra utilities (weather forecast, yellow page search,...)

    All you people with the 8100, what GPS units are you using? Does this app support Bluetooth GPS pucks?

    Using Holux 340 and it supports it.

    Looks better than Nav4All, not as nice as Mapquest navigator, which hardly ever works anyways.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I can't get the app to install OTA or on the PC on sevral different BBs.
    OTA says invalid COD, pc tells me no applications for my device.
    I am trying with an 88 and 83

    Not sure why you are getting the errors. Works great for me.
