    I have this on my Hero and was showing it to a friend of mine who also has a Hero. He was impressed and tried to find it on the marketplace but it seems to have been removed. Don't know why as it excellent and a life saver!

    I got very drunk in a strange city and had no idea where my hotel was. I was too drunk to type. I just spoke the name of the hotel and it searched google for it, which then provided a link to google maps. Used the compass thingy to guide me back!

    I'd love to get voice search back, it was one of the coolest things on the phone.

    Like jUsT2eXy I downloaded the .apk file off the net but I could never get it to work properly, kept giving me American sites. York became New York ect..

    Cheers Al

    Thanks rustynuts, for some reason that one seems to work a bit better than the one I installed.

    Cheers Al

    This is a great app, thanks for posting the link.

    Does anyone have a link to Armadillo Roll by any chance.

    cheers

    I doubt it, otherwise Eclosion would have been asked to remove the d/l from their site (and I'd be removing the link from here!). It's obviously still distributable.... maybe a regional limitation? I believe it's included with some Heros.
