Issue With Live Search & Questions on GPS Software

Since the search here doesn't let us search for three letter words, such as GPS I figured I'd have to make a new post.

Anyways, what's some good GPS software? I don't mind paying. Live Search is fine, except for a few things. It doesn't show locations, like ATM's, Gas stations, etc.

And also, lately it is giving me this horrible glitch where it changes everything I type in the search into the FN key equivalent. Soft-keyboard works fine, but when I type with the slideout KB, it only gives me the numbers and symbols as if I had the Function key held down, and I don't, nor is it locked, nor is caps lock. It really pisses me off. I've tried re-installing to no avail. Anybody have any idea how to fix this?


Anyways, as for a GPS software, any suggestions? I want something that tells me which turns to make. It doesn't have to speak, though that would be nice. But at least have the instruction change automatically when I get to the place. I'd like it to alert me of a turn coming up or whatever. Also, if it can include stuff like ATM and Gas Station locations, tha would be awesome.

The keyboard issue is a known one with the newest Sprint ROM.

As far as other GPS apps try TomTom or GoogleMaps.

Also, when wanting to search for a 3-letter word, add a * at the end, it is used as a wildcard.

For example, search for GPS*

Yes... it's called a maintenance ROM. Due out from Sprint/HTC sometime this month. Hopefully.
