    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.

    I doubt if the iPhone is going to use TomTom will it be using Google maps, as Google maps use Navteq maps... TomTom uses Teleatlas... these two are competing mapping companies.

    My guess is, the app could be close to a 1.5-2.0gb download and cost around 69-80 dollars (going rate for newest navteq and teleatlas maps).
    really thats all? cause my buddy in parts said they filled the whole DVD if its only 2 gigs I wonder why they use more than 2 DVDs for the US If you could fit it on just one or two DVDs

    most of the mobile versions arent nearly as large. Look at tomtom navigator for mobile phones. It fits one 1gig flash card

    Most likely not considering its mostly for GPS tracking and not cell tracking. Im sure their are app updates and some stabilizations and maybe a shimmering hope for copy paste.

    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.

    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

    No...

    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

    A couple new features i see are:

    Plugins
    Check spelling
    Check spelling as you type/while you type
    Choose File
    Copy
    Paste
    Cut
    Copy Image
    Copy Link
    Download Image (which is already known to everyone by now)
    Learn Spelling
    Look up in dictionary
    Search in spotlight (?)
    Start Speaking/Stop speaking (this ones interesting)
    Upload file

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Exclamation Review 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.

    Cool iPhone 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.

    Did your 1rst G iPhone require re-activation after the upgrade. My 3G didn't. I did Option+Check for Update rather than Option+Restore, and as usual I unplugged the device before it finished rebooting. I was never asked to connect to iTunes to activate, though I did register the device about 5 minutes prior to installing the new firmware.

    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...
