    So I'm trying to make some space in my phone by deleting bloatware. You guys helped a lot as I was searching threads to enable faster 3g, root my phone, install Titanium Backup, etc

    I've successfully replaced my message program with SMS Pro and replaced my browser with Opera Mini... now I'd like to narrow down my map program.

    On my phone I have Latitude, Maps, Navigation and Telenav GPS Navigator... they all seem to do the same thing? What can/should I uninstall? Latitude and Maps seem linked and I'm used to using Google Maps so can I "safely" uninstall Navigation and Telenav?

    Edit: And I have "Places"?? Geez... how many programs do I need to tell me where I am?

    Pardon my ignorance it the that has the blue arrow. I belive its the google nav. I have used several programs and by far its the best. Telenav stinks. I think you need to keep maps also.

    Yes Navigation is your stock navigation app that works with you maps. The GPS Navigator came with your phone as well as mine but never used it as Navigator rocks. Latitude is just a cool app to see were your friends are and things like that. I would keep all 3 but get rid of the 3 party app GPS Navigator.

    Places helps you find business around you.
