@HybridFridge -_- by useless I mean we can “use” it, just not the way we should be able to. Take the iPod as another example of handicapped tech: it’s basically a hard drive with media player capability, yet we cannot use it as such. Apple wants the user to depend on their software, just like Google makes the user depend on isp’s for marketing purposes.
@resumil -_- It doesn’t make it useless, people use it every day.
@74ryanwolf …even if there was 3G coverage where I live, I would much prefer a GPS app over constantly having to rely on a data plan. Google Maps is designed to attract service providers, not to benefit users.
@resumil It has 3G.
@killerscene23 who wouldn’t?
@resumil who would use this offline?
no offline navigation makes google maps useless
OMG its great. Yes, but in Serbia, none of this is not supported, even not the street view, nor the navigation. Imagine that :-S
i wonder when it will work on other countries
i live in brazil and my nexus one would be so much better if i lived in the US… please google make it opperate around the globe!
The GPS works everywhere. But navigation is in Beta and does not work in denmark.
Is this US only? Can’t find the turn-by-turn option on my Nexus One here in the UK, or maybe I’m being a bit thick – it shows directions and a 2D map but that’s it.
does the gps also work in denmark and other EU countries?
My house is in the major city of Ringgold GA then? ‘Cause I see it clearly from street view. o.o
oh well lets hope tom tom or garmin make a good app for it then
Swinging on a swing sunshine, swinging on a swing.
Others have also warned Apple. You can’t complain others are in the words of Steve Jobs, “stepping all over Apples IP”, while Apple is actively stepping all over someone elses.
If you are defending software patents, then it is you who doesn’t understand both the patents and the issues involved.
It needs an internet connection but I believe it does store the route currently used so you don’t come to a grinding halt when your service dies.
If you want to change destinations or such though, you’re out of luck.
Trust me, it doesn’t work flawlessly with Google at all. In my town alone we had several bugs appear with the free GPS, several included wrong destination address, despite the correct address appearing on screen. Also, street view and such, yeah, forget about that unless you live in a major city also of course.
You don’t understand a lot about patents do you? We’re not talking about the gesture. We’re talking about what the phone OS does when you use that gesture. Apple patented certain things that can happen when you use the gesture.
Google and HTC for instance could probably easily get away with making the phone fart when you use the gesture on the N1. Google and HTC also can’t say they didn’t see this coming, Apple warned them a year and a half ago.
I would like to see the validity of “pinch out” tested in a US court. It’s not an invention, its a gesture… its almost as stupid as the patent for “swinging on a swing”.
I have google maps on my 5800 but it is very different than the this google maps
is the street view only for the turn by turn? Ore is it on gps all the time?
I’m an iPhone user, I must admit, Google’s free navigational apps could be THE killer app that gives edge to android. iPhone has a much larger app store, but none of the GPS apps in it is free, and none of them works as flawlessly as Google’s.
does it store the maps on your phone or do you need a internet conection download them constantly?
