    HotUKDeals Forum - View Single Post - Orange Maps are now available for the HTC Hero - "Free" for those on some packages.

    Should feed your GPS needs whilst waiting for 2.0! :cool:

    EDIT It kept force closing for me on the initial launch if the phone went into standby. I stopped the screen from fading by tapping it and that seemed to solve it for me. Once it was set up it was all goood! :D

    I get the typical T+C.. Doesn't say its free...

    Same here so I just declined it. Not worth risking getting charged unless it clearly states it's free for you to be honest.

    Hi All, I have just downloaded this and tried it today. It seems OK, a bit laggy on roundabouts etc, graphics are OK not stunning. I was really interested in the speed cameras. It would seem you can only have this option on when actually doing a pre programmed route. This is a pity as ideally I would like it when driving in general.

    On a second note, it seems on my tariff I have to pay in full, but when ringing orange I got there call centre in India and was informed it is free on my package. I asked her to send me a text saying this which she said she would do, surprise surprise I did not get a text.

    I was wondering if anyone has tried orange maps and also has Co-pilot, i would be interested in a comparison.

    If I only have to pay

    I just phoned orange to check whether I'd have to pay. The first time they cut me off mid phone conversation...I phoned again and the woman kept saying "nothing is showing on the system" I kept saying that I'm sure it's not because I haven't accepted the T&C yet... I just want to know if I will have to pay on my contract...

    Useless :(

    I'm going to accept the T&C I think it said it was free for 7 days and then I would have to pay - I'll just cancel it before then.

    just tried testing it - I've got a full signal - and yet it couldn't locate my office - nowhere near it.

    Tried google maps though and that was almost as bad! Maybe there's some interference here though, as google maps has worked fine for me before.

    GPS works best out doors, however Google maps has a much better database, but its not turn by turn

    You've done me a favour bringing this thread to the top. I upgraded my Orange account when I got the Hero, to encompass internet. It was due to come into affect on 15th March, but for some reason didn't. I phoned them, they apologised and said it would now kick in on 15th April. I rang them after reading this thread yesterday, just to double check it was still on for that date, but also to see if Orange Maps were included as it was going to cost
