Sorry to here about shipto I had a similar problem with paypal, never could get a human being to talk to to sort it out, and never did.


What impressed me the most was the speed, least than 25 hours from ordering to delivery.


I would buy another one or two but girl friend not sure and nervous about coming through customs with more than one.

I will see mine tomorrow when I get back to San Franciso and will be back in NZ on Tuesday. Not sure if that will make me a king :-)

But saw the phone at CES and it's way cool. I saw in in a booth where the company was showing GPS enabled mapping applications for smartphones including Windows Mobile and Android. They had it loaded on the Nexus One and it looked very functional.

Check out www.copilotlive.com

The sales guy said you buy app from the app store on Android (also the Apple Store for the iPhone) and while he wasn't certain pricing for full ANZ maps and the application was about $50(AUD) which is a bargain for a full GPS enabled device for both countries.  I plan to get it.

Thats one of the things that interest me, turn by turn navigation on Android.  Ichiu7 did Copilot say when ANZ maps would be availible as currently on thier web site only North America and Europe are covered.


We don't need to pay Vodafone mega bucks in data charges for google map data.


Can someone point me to an appropriate thread for this topic.


Would be nice if Garmin did one for Android so we could use the NZ open source maps.

Will let you know tomorrow night when I get my hands on it!

[edit]

from Google re multitouch for UK phones

http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Google+Mobile/thread?tid=4dce001fa2a059f4&hl=en

Looks like it's the same phone so if the US version does not have multitouch for native apps, neither will the UK one

The brochure I got and their marketing guy said ANZ maps are available now. The product works differently from say Google maps in that you actually buy and download maps into the phone itself (like a true GPS device). Then it uses the GPS receiver in your phone to display locations on the maps you have including turn by turn navigation etc.  So it's a way to get the same service Google offers without the data charges.

If you look here it says ANZ maps are available now

http://www.alk.eu.com/copilot/maps.asp

He also said that map updates were free.

Note slightly OT but anybody with an Android, iPhone or Windows Mobile device can buy the app and maps now.

A bit of Googling and I have answered my own question.


Copilot blog link


http://blog.us.copilotlive.net/?p=45


October 9th 2009 Co-Pilot Live 8 for android AUD$79.99 that's $100 NZ.  A bit pricey I think as was looking at stand alone Garmin nuvi 205W GPS unit at Best Buy for US89 say 140 NZ with that you have USA maps and then load NZ Open source for free and which have the new north Auckland motorway SH1 on.

Over at AppleInsider article that Google struggling to support angry Nexus One buyers. Sounded like Google hasn't quite grasp the knowledge of supporting customers. We (at my workplace) had somewhat difficulty to communicate with Google in terms of their Google App Mini... I guess Google probably still new to enterprise business, and seeing that supporting "free" applications is one thing, supporting enterprise and paying customers are a whole lot of different arena, hope they'll brush up their skills and be swift in communicating to their customers with their support.

chiefie: Looks like a FUD story. No names. No details. When you turn the phone on, the instructions you need to follow are right there on the screen.

Are you saying Apple have accessible phone support for the average customer? Where? :-)

Remember that the maps for AUD$79.99 also include NZ maps so that's quite useful.

I love it how when you get an iPhone you need to install iTunes to activate it [NOT!]
