    To add to that, coming from a member of the xGPS team, having MMi host the xGPS App is a HUGE HELP. Its not about them looking huge or anything, it is to help us get this software out to a MUCH larger audience, helps us out by taking some strain off of our servers (lets us use that to answer questions/comments/problems ), and allows us to have peace of mind know that if something happened to our server, MMi is there to back us up!

    So much thanks to MMi for the help and assistance from the xGPS team!

    Yes!!!!!!!!!! Would be awesome though if we could download the entire map and load parts from the flash memory to the ram. Instead of downloading them :S

    There is a Universal Java Map Manager for the Computer to download you maps and store them on the iPhone so there is no need to connect to data plans. Thats one of the man functions on xGPS.

    The current versions are alright, but the next 1.2 version, let me assure you is veeerry very good, stable, and fantastic.

    xgpsdev.xwaves.net/forum and you can find the manager on there.

    I think Apple will only allow real GPS apps in to App Store after the release of their new iPhone with 3.0(if it's true).

    Oh no wonder there are a lot of posts by "tomheben" in this forum, because he's a member of the xGPS team, just saw the info in your signature lol.

    One question. I have an alpine head unit with ipod control. MxTube and Youtube sound can be transfered through the dock connector as well as few other apps. Will this app be able to do the same? I dont want two seperate wires for auxiliary and ipod control lol.

    What makes you say that?

    Plenty of people want to release true SatNav but Apple wont let them. What will change with the release of 3.0?

    To the Video Out Question:

    Ill tell you this, if the cord that connects to the iPhone allows Video Out (It is a Video Out cord as well), you can download the ScreenSplitr (I believe that is the name) Application from Cydia and it will push the display through the Video out to your in-dash screen. I have seen it tested and it works just great.

    Reference MP3Car.com and their videos Here

    ScreenSplitr Project website is Here

    Idk, if I was working for Apple, I would have allowed GPS apps in to the App Store, what's the point having GPS in the iPhone 3G it you can't use it fully??? I think Apple might realize that by the release of a new iPhone.

    As long as theres emoticon support in 3.0, idc what other features are in it.
    I don't understand why Apple won't let GPS apps in to the App Store, what harm can they do??

    People, let me remind you also, that you do not, I repeat do not, need to download the xGPS Utility. It will not perform any function for you.

    We used the xGPS Utility when we produced and sold xGPS GPS Modules. It was used to let you see Lat/Long, Altitude and Speed of the Module as well as upgrade its firmware as it became available. We stopped used that when we partnered up with OrangeGadgets.com as our official provided of external GPS Units and stop making/selling our own.

    So, again, you do not need the xGPS Utility.

    oh man cant wait for the voice navigation update! should be great..i downloaded this app a while ago and the only thing i didnt like was when i would download the maps for offline use, the zoom level was considered..for example if i downloaded a region's map at a certain zoom level i could only view the map offline at that same zoom level, i have to download it each time for every zoom level i want (even tho zooming out and downloading the whole city takes up more memory than just zooming in and downloading a smaller region, this doesnt make sense as zooming out should only take up the same ammount of mb as zooming in since it does not include the other zoom levels of the downloaded map region)

    sorry if that didnt make any sense but i tried lol

    To everyone who wants GPS on their 2G phone/itouch, get this app and an iGPS360 module! I have been using my 2G phone with one of the modules since they came out. I would suggest the iGPS360 because it's form factor is much smaller than the other solutions. Also (for those who know GPS) the i360 module has an update rate of 5hz! That beats most retail GPS's! Now all we need is a mobile substrate fix.
