    Use the xGPS Manager on your desktop. Try downloading a region that is smaller the entire Australia. For car navigation, I use zoom levels of 2,3,4. Zoom level 2 gives me enough detail to read street names. By using fewer zoom levels it reduces the map size. Avoid using zoom lower than 2 because while they provide more detail, they increase the size of your map considerably.

    It works, but it seems like it's not refreshing the GPS signal constantly... It kinda hops and the speed is always off... Any ideas?

    I have iPhone 3G 8gb and I'm using T-Mobile on it. Do you need DATA plan in order for this to work. I have no DataPlan @ all.

    yh the speed takes a while to be the same. for example on the car it says 80 km/h and on xgps it said 100km/h and then it jumps to 0 and goes to the original speed 80 which is correct but takes too long. and i have a problem in driving directions. whenever i press on it and choose my current position to a mall in my country, it tells me ERROR: no driving directions can be found using ur query?!!! anyone else with the same problem????

    I've been testing xGPS over the past few days. For those of you who have been using it, it is clear that xGPS is using Google Maps for the map images as well as for the directions it provides. Beyond that similarlity, it is quite obviously superior primarily because it stays centered on your current position while you drive. This has always been a frustration that I've had using the Google Maps app while on the road for business.

    What follows is a list of issues that I've had with xGPS over the past few days, but don't get me wrong. The application solves a lot of issues for me and I like. Besides, you can't argue with the price!

    So here are the issues that I'd like to see resolved in a future version:

    - Voice navigation volume

    - Choice of English or Metric for the turn announcements (currently Metric)

    - An algorithm that takes into account minor GPS accuracy issues before announcing that you are going the "WrongnWay" (sic)

    - A better intereface for using an address from Contacts. Right now, when you go to contacts you have to find the contact, tap on it and then tap on the address. Then you hit Cancel and it takes you back to xGPS where the route has been calculated. This isn't very intuitive.

    - A Recently Found list so that you don't have to re-enter address information for an address that was recently found. For instance, let's say you drove to the local airport yesterday to pick up a colleague and now need to return to get on your flight. Right now you have to re-enter this info. See the Google Maps iPhone app for an example.

    - Auto Night Mode - It would be nice if xGPS would switch Night Mode on or off automatically based upon the time of day at your present location.

    - Search Places seems to have a bug because when I search for and find a location and then tap on it, it shows its location for a split second before the screen returns to being centered on my present position. If I zoom far enough out it does have a pin in the location it found, but I can't do anything with it. For instance, it would be nice to tap on it and be able to drive to it, or at least get its address for the Directions screen.

    - Driving Directions will only allow you to compute a route to a specific address. If you want to search for a place and then drive to it, you need to use the Routes Manager. Perhaps renaming these 'Drive to Address' and 'Drive to Place' might make them more understandable.

    - Add a map scale to the screen so that when you zoom in or out, you have some reference for distances. Unfortunately, Google Maps doesn't offer this, so it might not be possible for the developers of xGPS to add it without Google's support.

    That's about it. Remember, I do like the app and the above issues are simply ways that I believe it could be improved. Frankly, if all of them were fixed I might even consider (dare I say it?) paying for the app. ;-)

    Currently xGPS 1.2 only supports Google maps. The developers have suggested that future versions may support other map sources. For direct support on xGPS goto xGPS Users forum • Index page.
