    Guys,

    Aura is really giving me problems. I have it installed, but if I run it, it crashes with no errors.

    I've run the Aura Downloader, but thats flakey too. The actual map download stalls a lot, then if it does actually download, I then try to continue but it claims there are no maps installed.

    I've uninstalled the application, but the maps don't get removed.

    I've emailed Sygic, but not had a reply yet. Has anyone had and solved problems like this?

    Sygic replied, but they only told me to do what I was already doing, without success.

    I think the uninstall doesn't work very well, it's leaving large parts of the application on the device. So, once I've tidied it up, manually deleting folders and tricked it into actually believing me when I say there's a map actually installed, I got it going.

    It's a very odd interface, not terribly intuitive. It gives the impression of being a European (mainland) product, that's been translated to English.

    But the quality of the map data is high, certainly better than the crap NAVTEQ sell and in the centre of major cities, the 3d view is a joy to behold. With buildings rendered in the middle distance, as you approach, they slide into the ground so they don't obscure the route. It looks beautiful, but it's really all this application has going for it.

    It's not feature rich, the install is viciously complicated and the text to speech won't say road names. It's such a shame Aura is a one trick pony. It looks fantastic in the cities, but in other ways, it's so backward and difficult to use.

    Cities that have their building rendered include London, Liverpool, Manchester. Smaller cities such as York and Newcastle also, but places as small as Middlesbrough, Reading, Exeter and Bournemouth aren't.

    How did you "trick it" into believing you had maps installed? I have that problem of not being able to get passed the downloader no matter what I install.

    Which phone do you have?
    What Aura version are you running?
    I have Aura running without any issues on HTC Desire.

    Yes, it should work all right.
    I guess asking that to Sygic Customer Service is a good next step.

    Hi!
    Installed Aura last night
    Downloaded maps
    Working perfectly on HTC Sensation (2.3.4)

    One small detail:
    TWO apps are installed: Sygic and Sygic Downloader

    After your map download is completed, quit the download environment, and start SYGIC (through the menu)

    It should work

    Regards
