Touch and 3rd party GPS software


Oct 15, 2006
Did a search but didn't really see anything specific relating to the touch. What are you guys doing (if anything) for GPS software? I tried the trial of Sprint navigation, and it's nice, but I really don't want to pay 9.99 a month for it. My data plan is 'unlimited' data for $5/month, so it doesn't include the sprint navigation. (Don't ask how I got data for $5 a month, it's a long story and even longer when I tell it. But you can bet I love the looks on the faces of my ATT wireless-using friends when I tell them:cool: )
I'm considering purchasing TomTom6, or something similar. I'm just looking to see if anyone else uses 3rd party maps, how they work, how do incoming phone calls work while you are using the gps, ect. Also, can you copy the maps onto a large microSD card, and not have to switch cards constantly. I figure for what I'd pay for Sprint per month, I could buy something else and it would pay for itself around a year.

I am using TomTom6 on my Touch with WM6.1

Works well with two quirks.
1. The builtin GPS works but I have to initiate it with Live search first.
2. I have not found a way to minimize TomTom so that I can go into other programs while navigating. I cannot seem to find a menu to allow the task bar to show. When I used TomTom with my Treo 700WX it had hard keys for start, contacts etc. The Touch does not.

Other wise it works just as well as any other WM device.
