iPhone Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation Has Arrived!




iPhone Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation Has Arrived!


xGPS version 1.2 was today released to jailbroken iPhones and iPod Touches- finally bringing turn-by-turn voice navigation functionality to Apple’s GPS enabled mobile platform. Navigation is based on top notch Google Maps data and the software has some pretty slick features like Night Mode and maps downloading for offline use, giving it a paid-app caliber polish.

It seems like developers are giving us an increasing number of compelling reasons to hack our iPhones, as more and more great apps are being rejected from the App Store and are becoming available in Cydia. My reason was for tethering- the ability to use my iPhone as a wireless laptop modem. And I suspect voice nav with xGPS will soon be the deciding reason for many others.
Jailbreaking technically voids your device’s warranty. However, you might take comfort in knowing that you can always perform an iTunes Restore to erase all traces of the jailbreak hack.

Re: iPhone Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation Has Arrived!

A Beta is a Beta is a Beta. Ask anybody. WIndows 7 is in beta and will not be called a final product until its released in retail...

A simple thing like this should not even be talked about.....
also check out the reviews of the gps on your famous Iphone and then try to evaluate it..
Even if we like something we shouldn't be so blind so as to accept everything about it is BEST, to me that's IDOL worship...
I have many times said so myself that windows has a LOT of problems. so that doesn't make me a dis believer ? right?

Accept karna Seekho my friend....you are a nice intelligent person who just to defend something he likes or uses is going out of the way praising every aspect of it with malice towards the rest of the people.
you can't seem to accept that there will be multiple choices and people will choose whatever they want and they have a right to do so.
try to find out how many people are tweaking the apple mac os you are so fond of.
The category of people you are refering to doesn't even know what to do if its not explicitally mentioned on the screen icon of the OS, leave alone tweaking and customizations. the product works out of the box and that's what they want.

A set peice of hardware and a set number of softwares...that is more than enough for them.

Re: iPhone Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation Has Arrived!

I fail to understand your counter offensive.
I was not trying to get youaway from your best phone ( if you know how to use it)
You didn't read my post
therefore my giving more points will be useless. I am not a fan of WinMo and I am not saying that.
I just said that the Iphone is not the best phone as die hard fanbois say and you have said so yourself.
At last count Map my India had detailed city maps of more than 220 cities and all of India's Highways you have to see it to believe it.. and they make a version for the Nokia too.
So very conveniently you scuttle the original software of Nokia under the rug and start praising the IPhone again.
If customization is your forte then my friend just check out how many softwares are available for Nokia too.

Re: iPhone Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation Has Arrived!

You haven't even seen Map my India and you say that google covers more than it.....How very ill informed...
Nokia comes into the picture coz of this

Map my India has features which are non existent in any other software.
Turn by Turn navigation and what now even the Plot numbers.
Google hasn't even named the main road I live in my city let alone provide directions for it...
Check you card deck before you play, this is not teen patti or poker as you would call it.

Re: iPhone Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation Has Arrived!

^^ Directions were there since Google Map's in the Original iPhone.
But there were no Voice Commands, so you couldn't use the iPhone as a Navigator in a car, without a 2nd person.

xGPS just adds voice commands etc, so you can pretty much mount your iPhone on the dash like a normal GPS Navigator.

Re: iPhone Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation Has Arrived!

Get the new version, and remember when you said about me on thread where Stoney and you were going with all guns firing at me
In any case I have repeated what youjust said in that thread...
I never insult anybody. period. calling somebody ill informed is not insulting in any way and if that is the case then as I said in the old thread I am Sorry.
But it hurts when somebody calls you that doesn't it? but it doesn't seem insulting when you say that to others
and now I think this should be rested as you have threatened me...
What will you do to defend a peice of technology you are so in love with...

oh k got it.. Does this software requires a license(which requires payment) for voice guidance?
asking coz Nokia provides turn by turn visual nav for free but voice guidance requires a license to be bought.
