You can wait for the Sprint one to come out and pay big bucks or if you just want one like the one in the video you can find it on eBay for $5.

Volume is good, but if your ride is quite than its real good. My truck isn't so quite so I use my S9 and that works great for me. I seem to think it also matters on how good the phones speaker is. The Pre wasn't that great but my Blade was.

Thats just an FM reciever.

There shouldnt be any issue plugging the headphone jack into the auxillery jack on your car stereo and have it play through the speakers that way, though.

I have Sprint Navigation on my Blackberry Tour and have been really happy with it. I am interested to see the Google Maps Navigation.

So glad it works in landscape mode.

Does google nav work in landscape?

As long as Sprint Nav works better on the Evo than it does on the Pre, i'll be happy. The pre can't seem to find a GPS signal on clear sunny days with me standing still out in the open with my phone stuck high towards the sky. Its a joke.

My Sprint Nav has worked flawlessly since day one, maybe a location issue.

Now, forgive me if this is a dumb question, I'm new to the forums and am awaiting the 4G EVO that I've pre-ordered, but is Sprint Nav fully free on Sprint now with the "everything" plans?

I've seen older posts and reviews mentioning you have a trial subscription first, then start paying, but the Sprint site itself mentions "free GPS navigation" included with the data plan.

Now, seeing as the EVO will have the Google-based navigation too, that can be used instead, but I just wanted to find out a definitive answer on whether TeleNav or Sprint Navigation is free for life these days?

Thanks!

Great video!

I will be using the Sprint Navigation as my backup source when I head down to Myrtle Beach in June.

Because I do not want to lose service and get lost without a GPS, I will be using my Garmin GPS as my primary source.

Yes it does. I like Google Navigation better than telenav because it has a larger database of places.

Does either Sprint Nav or Google Nav have advanced lane guidance? I LOVE this feature on my friend's TomTom.

I've used Sprint Navigation aka Telenav up and down the eastern United States from Michigan to Florida and as far west as Missouri it's never gotten me lost nor has Sprint coverage ever let me down. You don't have a problem but I am looking forward to using Google Navigation because it appears to offer features.

Does anybody know if SprintNav caches your route so it will still work if you lose the data signal? I'd love to use this instead of my Magellan out in the country.
I've tried it with Google Nav on my G1 and it goes ipso shitso once the signal is lost (which happens a lot here with Tmo).

I have been using TeleNav on my BlackBerry for the past year, and have never gone back to standalone GPS. I used it with a GPS puck via bluetooth.

I loved it. Biggest gripe was that the volume was low. Very low. You couldn't play it through speakers via an FM Modulator either.

The low volume has nothing to do with Telenav, its your blackberrys speakers, seems like an older version you own (no gps built-in)

On my blackberry tour its quite loud.

Could be. You're correct. It's an 8320 and I use an external GPS puck.
