    I'm definetely getting a Desire as my htc Cruise is getting rather of an antique, however I realy enjoy my tomtom and not fancy paying again.
    My question is, is google maps a reliable step by step driving directions? and does it got voice maps?

    I think Google is one of the most reliable when it comes to maps etc.

    copied from the Motorola Milestone forum

    If you want to get Google Maps Navigation just follow this.

    1. Open Market - search SpeechSynthesis Data Installer - install

    2. Download maps3.3.1-by-directions-root-2.apk from maps3.3.1-by-directions-no-root-2.apk ... at uploaded.to - Free File Hosting, Free Image Hosting, Free Music Hosting, Free Video Hosting, ... to your computer

    3. Copy maps3.3.1-by-directions-root-2.apk to Milestone with USB cable

    4. Install it on Milestone ( use any file explorer to open it, I used Astro )


    Once its done you will have 2 google maps icons. One is the old one and the other is the new one with turn by turn voice navigation.[​IMG]


    Might work, I'll give it a try on Saturday ;)

    Just remember that Google Maps will use data, while I assume your TomTom has the maps loaded on the device.
