Is it just me, or does anyone elses telenav get stuck on 96% and does not give a response to anything??

I cannot get it to work.. Anyone has any suggestions??

I do live in Orlando FL, where there is 3G service.. Don't know if that helps get better answers.

Do you subscribe to the "total internet" package? I don't think Telenav will work with basic T-Zones.

I just subscribed about 30 minutes ago but it could be awhile before my "total internet" kicks in.

Hmm. The dude told me on the phone tonight that "total internet" will make telenav work. Dunno, then. I just figured that was the reason why I was always stuck at 96% myself...

Telenav is actually a separate charge each month, you may need to contact Telenav and set-up an account with them before it works. i know there is supposed to be a free 7 or 14 day trial with it, but not sure if you have to activate an account first. might be worth a shot though.

Still no luck with this telenav stuff. I read on the telenav site that "T-Mobile's phones do require an external GPS Receiver in order to function with TeleNav GPS Navigator" but the Behold is also not listed as a compatitble phone. I wonder if it still needs the reciever.

Anyone have any luck with it?

You have to have at least a T-Mobile web and then you can register for a 14 day trial.
I tried it and it is slow in picking up if you change your route. It is a $9.95/mon charge after the 14th day. So, might as well get a better GPS for $149

I finally figured out how to add addresses and look up businesses on the web and synchronize them to my Navigator's "Favorites". If anyone is interested here is the [url=http://signin.telenav.com/tnsso/sso/home .do?callback=http%3A%2F%2Fmy.telenav.com%2Fmy tn%2FMyAddressPages.do%3Fact%3DmyaddressList] link[/url]: http://my.telenav.com

Thanks for the tip. Gave it a shot and it worked! So it's real GPS. My buddy was braggin about his voyager once as we were having a beer at the bar and turned on his "GPS" but said that it goes off the cell towers so it's not 100% accurate. I figured that this would be the same but to my surprise, it's true GPS.

Played with it today. It told me how to get to Walgreens and how to get home from down the street. Haha

It sometimes takes a while for mine to load and would get stuck at 96% but eventually did it's thing. Just make sure that you're not next to a building that could be blocking your "view" and that you give it plenty of time. Eventually it will either load or you'll get an error message. Mine never took more than 3 minutes.

Wish I could be more help!
