    Unfortunately not. They only allow installation of apps to internal storage but you can store any and all multimedia on it, including music, movies etc.
    Hope that helps.

    Sadly there is no solution. Only of there is an update to WP8 which allows you to install apps on and SD card like on Android phones

    I knew something like this would happen. They advertise the phone as having 4GB of storage but it only really has 1.3GB.

    Sorry to hear you spent so much on an app you can't use :-(

    I recently bought Navigon Europe when I still had my Omnia WP7 for € 85, the price decreased indeed...

    With the installation of the common apps and syncing of some accounts my free space looks like this now. No media like music, pics or videos on my Phone yet. Downloading just one country in Navigon also requires downloading 148.3MB of other Navigon files, and totals to more than my free spaces allowes. Bummer. Any tips or tricks are much appreciated, otherwise I must wait for an update...

    I installed 27 apps... No heavy stuff, except for Navigon. Just some newspaper apps, social media etc. Deleting apps is no option for me, if that would be the only solution this just isn't my phone...

    My phone memory is now:
    Music 0mb
    Pics 0mb
    Apps (27) 635mb
    Other 869mb
    System 2.02gb
    Free space 119mb

    3.5gb of 3.6 used 😡

    I still can not understand why this kind of stuff is possible... We don't need to install Apps on the SD-Card. If only MS would allow to store all the App-Data on the card, it would already be more than enough... All the apps can be installed on the internal space, but everything the apps have to download or buffer, is being pushed to the sd card...

    I really hope you will find some way to handle this...

    I even erased my phone fully and restored to factory settings tonight. After set up, first thing i did was installing Navigon before downloading other apps. Still the same issue occurred... Not enough space.

    I would send an email to HTC! Right to the top! I would tell them something like this " I bought this phone, but can not use it! My question ist: is there some kind of an update coming which will change my situation, or not? If not, I am forced to buy another phone (Lumia 620). I would like to have a clear answer. Thanks in advance..."

    The thing is that you can not just hope that an update will come... If you knew for sure that something like that is going to happen, I am sure you would wait...but I doubt that HTC will give you some clear answers...

    Just deleted Navigon from my phone and rebooted, free space is now 565mb. Is that logical? Will try to install again and download the NL map again, fingers crossed!

    Hmm, it could be. The app itself (without map data) is much smaller than 565MB. But I guess most of the MBs were used as a reserved buffer or somehting like that (When you go to your memory options, you should see "other" listed there...sadly I don't have WP8, but as far as I know a lot of space is being used for that "other" stuff. All the app buffers, emails and so on are going to "other").

    My guess would be that after rebooting and erasing all the stuff from your phone you should at least have 1,3GB free space... If that's not the case, then I think something is wrong...

    After installing only the app of 12mb according the store (no maps), my free space dropped from 565mb to 523. Strange. So again not enough space for NL map plus the required extra package...

    On the navigon international site say :


    Important notes


    The following technical specifications must be met:
    ◾NAVIGON for Windows Phone 7 is available from Microsoft Marketplace.
    ◾Compatible with all Windows Phone 7.0 devices, or updates to Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango)
    ◾Depending on map configuration, you will need up to 2GB of free memory in order to install NAVIGON for Windows Phone 7 on your device.

    Try install Navigon Fresh on computer for see if you can download the maps for the phone.

    Thanks Sityos.. Will try that link you provided. Needing up to 2GB is only when you install all Europe maps I believe. Only Navigon and NL map should be about 600mb. Otherwise I will try one more clean install to factory settings. Will give Navigon a call tomorrow. Really don't believe this.

    I've tried this:

    Shrink Storage | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    and it restored me some free space on my phone, deleting unused data from "other".

    Did you tried this?

    Yea I wish they allowed you to install the apps to the SD card. I have had to delete most of my games in order to install the new games which take up alot of space. I have them all saved on my SD card so I can easily install them back when I clear up space from games I complete, but if much rather just have them all installed on the card.
