    Hey guys so unfortunately googlemaps doesn't provide any support for the united arab emirates. I bought the desire hoping it would be a one-shot all in one kick ass phone/gps/machine of biblical destruction......but unfortunately now have no means of using GPS

    Do you guys have any suggestions on what I can do to get some GPS support for my unit? I know companies like Navigon sell a map application for android ($100!!!), but the problem is with the desire you only have a teeny tiny hard drive and many apps don't transfer to the external card's hard drive. So i'm kinda stuck, and keep getting lost, and need some gps support damn it! ;)

    All of the Sat nav apps place the large files (ie the maps) on the storage card.

    Yes of course :)
    But CoPilot does a part of it's own app shove on SD card.
    I have CoPilot installed on my Desire :)
