    That's very good news!

    Just about every other App I d/l from the store crashes my phone. Can't really complain since this is the best phone I've ever had. :)

    Wow I can't wait. The lag is annoying sometimes.

    Normally how long after an update released to developers will it be before the rest of us get it?

    Thanks!

    Do you get access to 2.1 beta from ADC? I only have a student membership atm so I don't get the OS downloads, so I was curious.

    I think that we'll see this update before then. I bet the cloud will be active with 2.2 or even 2.3.

    Edit: really? we have to wait over a month to get this update? damn.

    So I know that the real-time tracking will work with the GPS hardware, but what are the odds that it will improve tracking on the First-Gen iPhone?

    Hold on my phone is still syncing my data back so one it's over i will test....but im not sure if the app has it built in yet maybe it's not even in the app until they release an update that includes it . but under the readme it shows that you can now build your apps with this feature

    no just the dot moved idk it may be because i didnt go very far i will test it more tommorow when i actually drive somewhere

    I would think that AIM would need an update to take advantage of this new feature.
