Talking Using Nook Color as a GPS

My Nook Color just won't stop to impress me. I knew it can be used as a GPS unit, but I haven't taken the time to try it out, but I finally did it:

YouTube - Nook Color (Honeycomb) as a GPS Navigation Device - HD

NOTE: Even though I used Honeycomb, you should be able to achieve the same thing using any rooted Nook Color with the required apps.

Re: Using Nook Color as a GPS

I've used the TetherGPS app between my Nook and Epic 4G...works as advertised and I love having that big screen in the car to use instead of that 4 inch screen of my Epic.

late,
Coz

At least you have a 4" screen. My Droid is only 3.7". The Nook Color really helps.
