turn by turn nav is not really a big deal. i dont see why you couldnt do it now.
you can already programically tell what direction you are going in. and could make a turn by turn app with google maps really easy. i mean google maps tells you each turn as text "step", all youd really need to do is use your gps to decide which "step" is next in the list... and have some voice engine software speak the string out.. i actually got some text engine ported on sdk and having even had time to play with it, but itd be fine for reading off real time directions to me.

How come I am not seeing it available for download in the Dev Center?? I just got accepted into the $99 program and paid and did the whole activation code and everything.
What gives?? I hope I didn't just waste $99 for nothing. I just see a download for SDK 9M2199a. There is nothing in the Program Portal either.If someone helped you, hit their THANKS button.

Will the beta be able to be pwned using pwnage or winpwn?Who uses signatures these days???
07-25-2008, 06:59 PM #32
its not to measure speed its to use as a turn by turn gps map and this update isnt out yet its a beta release for developers!

I just upgraded my 3G but not my 2G to the new 2.1 beta 1 release.
There seems to be a minor incompatability issue with apps created for 2.0 when running on 2.1.
Out of 36 apps I have installed, the only ones that crashed on me were PCalc, MonkeyBall and AIM. I reinstalled them and only MBall is still having issues.
The upgrade went smooth and kept all the settings and playlists without having to restore them from the backup.
Even though my device was registered at the dev portal, I had no need to reactivate. hmmmmm........
So far I have not found any new obvious features; its only Beta 1...
EDIT: FireFish found some new things. I was too sleepy to poke around.
The baseband jumped from 01.45.00 to 02.04.03. Huge jump. I guess the GPS update and possibly the Push API are the reason behind it.
Since the upgrade I had minor unexpected issues but nothing to worry:
-WiFi at times disconnected for some reason (new to this version).
-After the initial upgrade the SIM reported as invalid. Had to put another AT&T SIM first and it finally worked after putting the original back.
-Roaming takes longer to acquire a carrier and constantly switches carriers unexpectedly (new to this version). While I wrote this, it switched 15 times between the two local GSM providers. Both with the same signal strength. Unfortunately neither allows me to roam on their 3G network (AT&T issue I guess) to see if 3G-2G handoff is any different. Turning off 3G made no difference, only manual carrier selection solved this.
Haven't tried Bluetooth handsfree yet.
All in all, with regards to the regular applications (Mail, Safari, SMS, etc) maybe its my idea but everything else is running much smoother.
Possibly there will never be a 2.0.1, so if users are looking for quick stability improvement, this 2.1 may be the path for legit AT&T users; only if someone does leak this release
There is no FirmwareBundle available in the current PwangeTool that addresses this new release.
Thus far no news or "official" reactions from the Dev-Team about this release or if they will update their tool to handle it.
EDIT: It has been Pwned!
But no release date yet.
If my post helped, don't forget to thank me

I know these news aren't from 2.0.1, but this was awesome enough not to throw here:
Screen shots from the recently seeded 2.0.1 iPhone software for dev's.
Also, from MacRumors:
A couple new features i see are:
Check spelling as you type/while you type
Download Image (which is already known to everyone by now)
Look up in dictionary
Search in spotlight (?)
Start Speaking/Stop speaking (this ones interesting)

This woould be an interesting update. Now that Ive had my 3G phone I recently purchased a dashboard mount for it :P so now my gf can nag about how fast Im going when she sees the screen lmao
07-26-2008, 03:18 AM #37Review of OS 2.1 5f90
I'm running 2.1 5f90 now for like 45 minutes on one of my development phones.
I'm running the 1st gen (no 3G) as I aint using my 3G for dev software anymore (not worth it).
I'll post some screenshots in 5 minutes of 2 new little things that caught my eye.
Oh yeh, all of the rumors about cut, paste, turn-by-turn, they aren't true.
07-26-2008, 03:39 AM #38iPhone Beta OS 2.1 5f90
I've attached 3 screenshots of two additions I've found so far.
Otherwise, everything looks the same as on my 3G running 2.0 xxx347.
Not a huge deal:
1) ADDED: Parental Controls switch for Camera
2) ADDED: New feature in Phone Lock - if wrong PIN is entered 10 times, you can enable a new feature which will erase your phone, for security purposes.
Otherwise, stability seems alright; then again, I'm running this beta on my 1st generation iPhone, which doesn't have all the new hardware that my 3G has.
No GPS turn-by-turn in Maps, from what I saw on mine.
If I get my hands on a 3G to install the beta on, I'll try again. I just don't wanna make my 3G a development phone.

In other words, if you have a legit AT&T iPhone 3G account you may be able to install this release without registering your device for development.
Possible good news to all 3G users waiting for relief with a new release once this is leaked.
BTW: On another forum, I got confirmation that a user was able to downgrade but the baseband remained upgraded, so you may want to give it a try.
Hope this helps you...
