TomTom navigation updated, now supports 200+ devices


Wednesday 05th of December 2012 / androidcentral.com
When TomTom for Android first appeared a couple of months back, support was limited to a few devices with WVGAdisplays, a move which excluded many of the most popular handsets. Today the app has been updated to version 1.1, bringing with it support for more devices, including those with higher-resolution screens.The new version also includes the ability to save map data to the SD card rather than the app storage partition, and a redesigned driving view, which TomTom says is designed to make key information clearer and easier to read.As devices go, we can confirm the latest version supports the Nexus 4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S3 LTE, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Nexus, HTC One X+, RAZRi, Xperia T, RAZR/RAZR MAXX, Optimus 4X HD, HTCOne X and One S, among others. TomTom says that more than 200 devices are now compatible with the app. Tablet support still seems to be a non-starter in this version, however, as the app refused to install on our Nexus 7 or various flavors of Galaxy Tab.The update is live now on Google Play. Prices vary depending on where you live and which region you're buying, bu

Friday 01st of June 2012 / androidforums.com
First 11 basic things to do after unboxing the mobile1. Sign in with google account if you have already one or make a new one. If you want to restore settings of previous android mobile to S3, then sign in beginning ( you need internet to sign in)2. Fully charge the mobile. Although with new batteries, the problem of battery memory is not there but still better to follow the advice or manual. fully charge and discharge few times3. In contacts, bring contacts from old mobile. One simple way is if your old contacts are already synchrozed with google, then you can simply download from google all the contactsin S3 or save old contacts as file like CSV etc and then import to new4. Go to market--> menu --> my applications and update if available for existing application5. Buy good capacity MicroSD card. S3 supports upto 64 Gb card.

Switched from htc vivid to galaxy s3


Friday 10th of May 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I wasn't due for an upgrade until July; but as time went on, my Vivid was behaving worse and worse. Luckily I came across the right CSR who hooked me up with the fully discount upgrade price. So....I got the Galaxy S3. Boy...the battery life is like 100% better than the Vivid. With the Vivid, I felt like I practically kept it charging 80% of the day. Not does the Galaxy S3 keep a charge longer, but it charges FAST. I think I could actually get through a whole day without charging the battery. Woot Woot! Ok...so....one thing that I hope they fix with the MUCH ANTICIPATED update...is the external store a.k.a. sd card. What is up with not being able to save downloaded ringtones and wallpapers that are downloaded from apps to the sd card as a default? I have googled this issue several times hoping that someone found a trick to save downloaded media (wallpapers, music, ringtones, pics...etc...) to the sd card. But...no luck. I know you can move everything from the interal to external storage...but honestly...who wants to do that all the time? Questions...what is the best and easiest way

Samsung Galaxy S3 - SD card unmounted


Monday 14th of January 2013 / androidforums.com
hi!I got my Galaxy S3 Aug 2012. While in the USA was using my S3 and got the Jellybean update. I started to notice early Dec that it would unmount my SD card and since i have most files on my 32 BG class 10 card; i had zip on my mobile phone memory save for the important stuff.there are days it would read the card but since Jan 2013 i would always have the SD card icon on top telling me it is blank or has unsupported files. is this a problem with the Jellybean update? I have previously had the S3 checked but it was because my class 4 sd card could not handle the HD/HQ pics and videos i took hence the class 10 upgrade. can i rollback before the jellybean? my boyfriend upgraded to jellybean last week and has since had the unmounted sd card problem. i'm a newbie and i hope this is the proper place to post this query. thank you! help is much appreciated! 1.)

apps dont use external sd card for backups ?


Monday 29th of October 2012 / androidforums.com
hi all, noticed this after having to factory reset post JB update.apps all seem to save their settings backups to the internal sd card and not (as on htc desire) to the real/externa sd card as you would expect .....so after reseting, all the backups are lost :/ is there a way of resolving this? i cant see a setting on s3 to generally change this - assume it is down to the app devs needing to code this s3 'feature' ? thanksdan
