    Question Toggling in and out of GPS mode on 8800

    Advertisement



    When using GPS Navigation (which by the way is great) how do you go into email function, or address book, etc and then return to the navigation mode without losing the navigation and having to start all over again. For example, while using navigation, an email is received, when moving from the navigation mode to the email mode and bieiwng the email, and then returning to the navigation mode, my navigation is gone, and I have to re-enter my destination, and start navigation again. is there a way to toggle out of the GPS function to another function and then toggle back to navigation???

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~have you tried alt + back and scrolled to your messages and then back again?

    I don't know if that will work, just a thought.

    What GPS app are you using? How well using Alt-Escape to switch apps works might depend on that...

    In addition to the Alt-Escape solution, you can also set your "soft" key (the button on left side of 8800) to do this. That's how I set mine, anyway, and it works well ... Except when the button is blocked by my auto mount. :-(

    Excuse my "ignoticism" but where is the ESCAPE key located on the 8800?


    Thanks !

    Its the button on the right of the trackwheel. An arrow bent to the left. That's the escape key.
