Maps in Iphone is used for location only

Trying to find one for navigation as well. Have already cracked the E90 Maps but still trying for iphone.

Nothing much, just switch to google map and click the square box in the bottom LT corner and it will show you the approx location by using cell triangulation, ie if the tower in the location you are in supports it. Unfortunately in India gmaps doesnt have direction or traffic updates yet, so without GPS (read as 2nd gen iPhone) not much of a use in navigation.

What i meant was with 3G you can atleast make out which direction you are moving in real time, which gives you a pretty good help in navigating, as i found out while we got lost inside chennai. What you are referring is direction guidance and traffic (not available in india with any software).

i upgraded to 2.2.1 and unlocked it almost 2-3 days back. Infact I was looking iphone dev team's blog when they updated the link to torrent

2.2.1 is just a little more zappier than 2.2. The differences are all internals only i guess and nothing on the gui...

hey guys,
can somebody can tell me whats the latest price at which iphone 3G is available ?
i checked with Alfa(irla, Mumbai), the locked one with Airtel/Vodafone is available at around 29k while the unlocked ones(with 1 yr warranty) is available for 30.5k.
Also they can unlock the locked ones for 1.5k which I think one can do with some guidanace.
Is the price fair ?

What version of the firmware were you on before you tried to downgrade? And why are you trying to downgrade?

Ps. That iClarified page is from a long time ago, unless you are on the right firmware versions, it will cause a lot more harm than good.
