Anyway, keep up the good work. Lots of people are looking forward to the finished product.

My GPS seems to think I'm up in Harlem, but that's where I was a few hours ago. (regular google maps thinks the same thing) You mentioned before that the Google API doesn't allow for live navigation, could you explain that to me real quick?
I live in NYC and don't have my car handy, so I can't test out the navigation functions. I think the application is brilliant, and I'm glad I could help test it out a little 2 weeks ago or whenever that was.
DDM123 wrote:So do Google's TOS mean that there will never be a realtime-navigation app available?
Yes thats what AndNav2 does. it works on OpenStreetMaps.DDM123 wrote:Or could it use non-Google APIs for navigation?
Exactly, when i recognized that I was likeDDM123 wrote:So does that mean AndNav! is capable, but that feature is just omitted?
DDM123 wrote:And OpenStreetMaps can handle directions and whatnot? I was just looking through it and it seems capable for the most part. Is AndNav2 already in the works? I'd love to beta test it.
One thing I should mention is that I was giving a demo of all my new Android apps to my fiancee last night, and she had trouble figuring out how to use AndNav. For me it's easy, but she had problems making a route. Unfortunately, she's the kind of person Android apps should be geared towards.

(I live in a new subdivision which after a year still does not show up on any of the map databases.) If you make any progress with this I'd love to know as it'd be great to have GPS which can actually get me home.
Also, if you're going to be using this, could you add an option to log your coords? I know there are other apps which do this for android but they all seem to require an online account. Being able to log new streets in this app and upload them to the OpenStreetMaps site would be ideal - I know the site already has people doing this, but allowing anyone with an android phone to contribute would really help.
Thanks, and I hope this works out!
