i am so confused about what all these things are? i've used google maps online, and a couple of times on my phone, and i've downloaded city "locations", but how do i use these - or which is better to be used - when travelling?
i'll be all over Europe come next month, and will have a data plan (actually a mobile wifi hotspot device at 1GB a month)...i want to use these gadgets but really can't tell the difference between them all
any advice? what have you used and how do you use it?
google maps stuff
maps - google maps basically
latitude - allows google and your google contacts to know where you are.
navigation - directions on how to get from one place to another.
HTC location stuff
footprints - puts a marker where u are. i think it requires u to sign in to htc sense to fully utilise it.
htc location - your main gps app. notice there are categories there. u tap on one and places listed will be sorted by how far they are from you in an ascending order.
did that help?
i was using a nokia 5800xm previously and had garmin mobile xt. here in malaysia we have a forum where people upload points of interest and map builders add them in to map builds. when roads get changed or redirected, someone's gonna add them in. i was able to find almost any place in any state with garmin.
unfortunately, these two gmaps and htc's location arent that detailed.
