Hi Guys,
I want to use my old P500 as a GPS device for my car
I need a fast ROM basically just for MAPS to work. Don't need tethering or other functionality. just need MAPS!
What i am going to do is, Download all the maps and then just use the GPS per reference, if needed i can host a wifi hotspot on my other device and then connect the p500 on the run.

Any advice on which ROM to use? I tried Paranoid Android 3.15 but its too slow

Oxygen ROM is one of the fastest around.

I am using the recent CM 7.2 and the phone is responsive and speedy. You can download from official CyanogenMod download page.

These types of threads are not allowed here.

From the "Message from the Moderators" sticky at the top of General:

4) No threads or posts asking for the best/most stable ROM/Kernel/Mod/whatever, or created for the purpose of comparing Phones/ROMs/Kernels/Mods/whatever:

These threads/posts will be deleted promptly and without warning. They have a history of causing problems due to trolls, and fanboys, along with various troublemakers, and therefore are no longer allowed. Regardless of that, there is really no way to judge whether or not a particular piece of work is better than another because it's all relative to begin with. If you want to know what piece of work is better for you, install something and try it out for a while. If you don't like it, try something else.
