I tried that and all of them were crap or worse. One wanted to tack your every move in 10 minute interals, talk about spyware in the extreme.
Google Earth is very crude and has no option to save local maps etc.
That makes it expensive on bandwidth in the extreme. No wonder some phone users find themselves with a $1000 bill at the end of the month.
I am going to be reviewing apps galore and you can bet I will be hostile to anything that emperils users.
The second one want users to pay when they move away from the home area. That is entrapment.
I'm sorry but you won't be able to find any GPS navigation apps for the 1st Generation iPod touch. The first one can't upgrade past iOS 3.1.3 and all new apps created with Apple's SDK require iOS 4.3 or greater. iWay requires iOS 4 so won't work with your iPod touch and CoPilot GPS is being updated soon and will require iOS 4.3.
Furthermore, your iPod touch does not have GPS and it doesn't even have bluetooth so you can't connect it to a 3rd party external bluetooth GPS receiver.
Well I have a Garmin GPS so I do have real location if I cannot get GE to find a Wi-Fi to work.
My Etrex H is down to 2 meters in 10 minutes from a cold start
my windows netbook has GPS but its pathetic at best
I also have a USB GPS receiver which is even more sensitive
For the record, that reference seems to be more oriented around the Phone rather than the Touch which I have
