For those interested, i received an email from AmAze GPS this morning they are beta testing a new version of their FREE GPS app. they have sent it to some people 3 days early, but i'm sure it will be all over later today if its not already.
Here is their emil
We have released a new test version for the Storm, which according to the first feedbacks- solved the GPS problem
You can download it from here: http://demo.locationet.com/amaze (on you're Storm)
In a few days, it will be available through our download site, but we didn't want to keep you waiting any longer.
Post feedback under the Storm-now works with GPS topic in out forum.
Not sure as i was already setup with a password but you may have to go to their site and setup an account first.
It is a pain Doorules, I agree, some observations:
I noticed that the click screen we have is not incorporated into the program. Just touch the screen like a voyager or those other touch screen phones and you will get how it works. Besides the touch interface, it does not scroll.
Personally, I like the the program, but because it doesn't take into account the way the storm works this is a nogo prog. for me...
It has potential though, if they change it to work like WB, BBmaps, and the other progs out there I think it will become very popular.
It's current status is a resounding BOO for me. Sorry AMAZE, consider it uninstalled.
I have used it 3 times to take me home from work last night and to an appointment yesterday afternoon and back. It is a little difficult to get use to but...... 1 - it works well, 2 - it's free, 3 - directions and weather are spot on, 4 - Did i mention its free. Ha.
they have a good forum for help.
as for the location, you need to bring up the keyboard, go to the first letter of ur state, drop the keyboard and use the scroll button to go down, yes a pain but it is pretty easy to do. the hardest thing to get use to is the touch vs click. and i'm still trying to figure out if it has a follow me option with their nice 3d type maps like VZW nav.
but as far as adding favorites and directions being good, no problems here. Kinda like when i first got my storm very fustrating but now love it
just my 2 cents
