Testing out the tp2's gps

Just came from an hour drive and tested how the gps works compared to the tp1 and so far I would say its a little better than the tp1 as far as lag. I used sprintnavi, googlemaps and msn live search. For the most part my position didn't lag behind too much at all and more importantly after about 30 to 45 minutes using gps while it was charging there wasn't any noticeable heat(slightly warm) coming from the phone.

Also if you have a mogul leather case laying around that works perfectly, atleast it did for me.

Re: Testing out the tp2's gps

Still Using my Original Mogul case for my TP1...

Wanting to buy the TP2 outright and keep the tp1 as a toy/android testbed once the CDMA Hero lands a true TP1 android port might come to life.

Might come down to lack of funding and pulling a hardware error upgrade trading my tp1 in as i have the oil slick spot on my second 1, but hardware wise they keyboard works great and i have no other issues other then the oil slick growing by the week.

Re: Testing out the tp2's gps

How was the usability of GPS while driving? TP1 was more or less unusable to me due to small screen.

The size of the screen is really a thing of beauty, I can't really put it in any other words. For me it was definitely worth the upgrade, without a doubt.

Here you go, as you can see the tp2 is just slightly too long but it works pretty well for the mean time. It also fits pretty snug in the tp1 case as well but we all know the case of the tp1 aint worth a damn compared to the moguls case.

Thanks for the pics!

You know, I don't even no why I have the screen facing out but I have always worn all my phones like that. I damaged a very nice nokia I had a few years ago at work when I walked into a doorknob, needless to say I was pretty pissed off. But I think it feels more comfortable taking it out of the case when the screen is facing out like that. In any case you had better not jinx me or its your ***
