Re: gps software

If you don't want to spend money, GoogleMaps or Microsoft Live or Bing.

If you want to spend something, I like Telenav. $9.99 a month. I know there are some people who like other non-subscription apps, but they all require a specific micro SD card to be in the device, and that's a no-go for me.

Just note that there's no "Verizon" version for it. After getting a subscription account from Telenav, you need to go to ota.telenav.com and navigate to Sprint/HTC and choose one of the versions there. There's one there listed for the Rhodium (TP2), version 5.5.24. Also note that if you're running 6.5, you MAY wind up with a "Cradle was not found" pop up (actually a "false error" and easily bypassed) when it launches, but I don't know for sure. It didn't happen when I was running 6.1, and I'm still not sure if I did something wrong when I set it up

Re: gps software

After you buy garmin you can easily place it on your own card.

Really? I've always thought you needed their SD card in the device to run the app. How much room do the files take up?

Re: gps software

I already have an 8 gb card, I'd hate to have to change cards every time I want to use gps. Does any software run better than others? What can I do to increase th performance of the TP2 gps, isn't ther some reg hacks? Also, what's this QuickGPS program? I just installed the verizon 6.5 update, it's pretty nice.
