    Has anyone managed to get this to work? All I ever get is the "No driving directions can be computed using your query" error.

    I downloaded maps in this area to test it and still no luck, even with simple queries.

    xGPS is basically worthless right now. I actually got it to pinpoint my location (which was actually about three quarters of a mile off) and tried using the speedometer function. It clocked me at 94 mph while I was pulling away from a stop light at about 15.

    Thing is they're promising a huge update that is supposedly going to introduce TBT directions. It was originally slated to be released on the 20th of this month but has been delayed until late March or something like that. I can see another Apple/Push situation forming here.

    Either way, unless they can improve their basic functions I'm really not interested.

    I deleted this app and I am waiting for the new release. I think the best way is to enter in an address. It doesn't work well with current location unless I am missing something. Goodluck.

    The Beta is out at the moment.

    Wait until the end of the month for version 1.2

    Yeah in the US you can't use the "current location" when entering a start address, you have to enter a physical address, I also noticed the speedometer is way off too

    its working fine for me. the location is accurate but the speed is jumpy. maybe try going in to the xGPS settings -> GPS -> and select iPhone 3G GPS. if you don't have the iPhone 3G then i don't know what other choice to give you.

    same, I did this because the xGPS gps wouldnt even connect. But even so, it pinpoints me exactly and the speed is in the neighborhood of what Im actually doing. Cant wait for voice!
