Wikitude Drive Looking for Test Drivers for Augmented Reality Navigation | Android Phone Fans

Glad I spotted this when I did. After 2000 people download it will be pulled from the market. I got mine and I'm looking forward to testing it out!

I was able to get it but it and use it for most of the day but it stopped working a few hours ago and keeps telling me it needs to be "updated". Is anyone else having this issue? I have the Incredible if that matters.

Yeah, I'm having the same issue. I got mine this morning, but I didn't have a chance to use it until this evening. Tried to use it and I get the same update issue, but there is no update. The app is no longer on the market so I guess they got their 2000, pulled the app, and messed something up so we couldn't update.

I don't think the apk will help as it was designed to stop working after a short time.

How did you manage to get it going in Europe, I was hoping to grab it yesterday, but it was a no-go from the market.

I am currently using Motonavs iGo version, and Google Navigation with Maps BRUT. How is it compared to these services?

How does this compare to AugSatNav? I tried that some time ago and whilst it sure has potential it wasn't ready for the masses yet.

I'd say this app isn't quite ready for primetime, either, but that's why it's a beta. Kinda glitchy. Doesn't reroute very well/fast. Crashed a couple of times on me. Still, a great idea.
