    Probably why you are having a problem.
    (sorry - just read that in your details - i should have looked there first!)
    Try upgrading to 2.21 (or 2.20 if you want to unlock your phone).
    Lots of software won't run on FW <2.1

    Settings > Driving Directions > turn Recompute Itinerary to ON

    Just wanted to echo everyone else's thoughts! This app is simply brilliant considering its free. It rivals my Tom Tom and so much so, I will probably be using this more often in the future than said Tom Tom, simply for the fact I can play music and have a Sat Nav!

    I have to plug my Tom Tom in since its battery is pretty much dead, meaning I can't listen to music.

    this app is extremely gr8, however, my only complaint is that the map sizes are HUGE!!!! is there any way to compress that. For example i was downloading a map that is 817.76 MB, WILL IT BE THE SAME SIZE ON MY iPHONE 3G?

    Default xGPS
    So far, the accuracy sucks as a pedestrian. The GPS places me several blocks away from where I actually am.

    The current location is locked and reset gps won't work.... few kinks but how can we complain when it is FREE?!
    Search Google for "Custom Firmware 3.1.2" if you don't have a Mac and are using Windows!

    Default data less GPS
    Any way to get this to work (rerouting/updating/etc) without the need for a live data connection like TomTom or iGO8?

    I know you can download and cache the maps, but you still need a live connection to do searches, destinations, etc.

    The app doesn't let me view maps while I'm connected to 3G. But it will connect, give my current location etc while I'm connected to wi fi. Any ideas?

But jumped for joy today, I have been driving around the neighborhood testing this out. Let me tell you for FREE this app. is amazing. The directions are right on the mark no problems at all.!!!! So happy I bought the iphone 3G!!!!

    i love the app the only suggestion i have for the devs is to let you download the maps from the web and then upload them to the phone. i tried to download it on the mac application and it took hours upon hours just to download them and took 5 mins to upload it. i have an extremely fast internet connection so there is no way it should take hours before it even lets you click download map and then even more time just to download it once it starts.
