Yeah, google maps does not navigate, it only shows your location, and shows directions, but I think it should follow you with the gps, I can't check at the moment as my gps is broken...

But I do know for sure that it will not tell you, with voice and text, when to turn and how much of a distance you have to make that turn, etc.
Navigation software is a must if you are planning to use it while driving..Google Maps is enough if you ask me though, but only if you have an unlimited data plan...otherwise get navigation software, which has the maps stored as data straight on your phone.

With this phone you get only one city's map. rest you have to buy. However, you can use google maps from www.google.com/maps. Plenty of features like Latitude and Layers. Download from google site, free.

No gps working


I've got a HTC Touch pro or AT & T Fuze. The GPS worked fine for a few months but lately has stopped working. It was always slow to find the satellites compared to the GPS in my car. I've tried a few programs that were using the GPS tried changing the settings and ports and resetting it, but still doesn't work. I've backed it up was thinking of a hard reset incase it's a software error or else the GPS itself is broken on the device. GPS tuner can search for the GPS and it just searches for ages and doesn't find anything and used to find it almost instantly.

I have HTC dimond phone how to donwlod free game in my phone


Compared to the iphone its harder, but not impossible. Just use google and search for example: Windows Mobile Games, Windows Mobile 6.1 Games, Windows Mobile Freeware, etc.

Examples (from google :P)
http://freewareppc.com/
http://www.smartphone-freeware.com/
http://www.pocketpccentral.net/software/ent-games.htm

Make sure you get games for Touchscreen Windows Mobile 6.1 (or sometimes called Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional) phones, or you can't play them properly!

Just went through my bookmarks:
Heres a neat list of games that use the g-sensor/accelerometer in the diamond.

Also heres a nice utility to make your screen rotate:

Sat Nav, Online mapping not good


Check out the Terracrosser software, this uses Google maps but allows you to use downloaded maps. Terracrosser works on my S620 although I haven't been able to get my BT GPS unit to function properly with any mapping software. I have tried setting it to COM 6 as previously suggested.

HTC tytn II, att tilt,Kaiser ( all the same products) have internal GPS chip installed just near the camera , so you need not buy anything else. Just get google maps app, a internet connection and try to find your self by using locate me feature on google map, the GPS chip will point you on map with very much accuracy.

GPS Use


Hye! here's how you can take care of this issue: Dowload google maps from the web (for windows mobile) & install it on your diamond. In order to use GPS on this phone, your internet/gprs connection must be functional; without netwrok connectivity you cant use GPS on this device as it does not have the map interface on its chip (& cant be loaded later too). It just has a light GPS transceiver which in presence of a mapping software (such as google maps) can show your position on the globe & in some countires can also navigate you. After installing google maps, make sure your internet connectivity is on and then work with google maps 'USE GPS' & 'My location' or 'Navigate' functions ... enjoy!
