No because a. TomTom aren't developing for Smartphone nowadays (v6 is PPC only) and b. the GPS doesn't seem to work (left with a view of the sky all night, no fix).

How's the battery time with the faster processor?

Can you post a pic with the S710 and Wing side by side?

(btw Paul, just noticed your last name, don't happen to be related to a Steve O'Brien?...then again, there probably ALOT of O'Briens ;) )

Er, no Steve O'Brien's I know ;)

My S710 is on loan atm, but I will do a pic of the S730 with it and the TyTN II.

Battery time - too early to say!

TOMTOM 5.1 work perfect in SPV E650 (HTC S710) and i'm using TOMTOM NAVIGATOR 6 on the same device with Fakecursor.
Can you try in your HTC S730?

I imagine TomTom 5.1 will work fine (although i'll try it when I get a min), I don't feel TT6 with Fakecursor is an acceptable user experience for me however!

Hi Paul, seems this is a case of giving you a car but with no steering wheel. Is it going to be possible to enable the GPS or is it fixed in the ROM? ;)

The GPS is enabled, and is detectable through apps like Google Maps (i'd guess). It just isnt locking onto any satellites, which to me would indicate a lack of/poor effort in design of antenna...(which we saw before on some other HTC device, the hermes i think?)

Thanks Monolithix, it's just that I noted if you search htc S730 in YouTube you can see GPS working on a device in Israel, I assume it's the internal GPS and not external as there would be no point as that can be done on a S710/E650. Check it out and tell me what you think...thanks looby ;)

Maybe my unit is faulty, or they've changed something as they move towards retail!

A QuickGPS app on there to update the Ephemeris would be handy too!

How's the S730 for playing games, e.g. warfare incorporated, cubis, explode arena etc?
How does the keyboard compare to say the S710, THC Dash and/or Samsung I600?
Does either Vito Auto notes or Resco Audio Recorder work on the S730?
How smooth (e.g. not very or very) does TCPMP player work on the S730 with .WMV video files?
When you have time could you post details on 'real usage' battery life?

My understanding is that the chipset the phone uses (Qualcomm MSM7200) has GPS processing capability, but there is no physical GPS antenna in the phone so you're unlikely to get a signal.

The GPS module is a bit flaky at first. The native version of Google Maps wouldn't find any satellite because it wouldn't hook up to Windows' GPS libraries for some reason. We had to use a little trick. Run this application first to "wake up" the GPS, and then Google Maps worked perfectly.

Don't know if it will make any different if you try that application.

No, it's not that problem.

Even HTC's own GPS tool doesn't find more than 1 satellite ;)
