Hi I am new to the whole sat nav on a smartphone, I have just bought a HTC Touch Diamond with integrated GPS receiver. I want sat nav and maps on my phone that will use the internal gps receiver, i.e. i do not want to use a bluetooth receiver. I have seen a few pieces of software but the Touch Diamond does not have a memory card slot so i am also wondering how to install it onto the phone, and what is the best software?

Any navigation software that isn't locked to the micro SD card will work fine on your phone, avoid i-Go8 and McGuider/ Sygic as these two are locked to the SD cards ID so they won't work with your device.

Have a look at TomTom Navigator, although this is quite old using maps that are around 2 years old, or wait and see if they release version 7 for general use, currently this is only available on the hardware you own when purchased in Germany.
Co-Pilot Live is a decent application that will work, Route 66 is another that will work but I wouldn't recommend it due to the non existant custom POI support. - Mike

http://www.inavcorp.com/announcements.html is a link to the 2009 versio of iGuidance. So far its come on DVD so you can install on to your Touch Diamond. Fairly good software I understand, based on reviews. But the PocketPC version is only coming out in August. Also Oncourse Navigator is said to be excellent, and they usually only sell on Micro-SD but they might make an exception for Touch Diamond users. See http://www.oncoursenavigator.com/forum/default.aspx?f=10&m=6699 and there might be answers. I'm looking for software too, and the choice is between iGuidance and OnCourse Navigator.

thanks for those, have been doing a bit of digging myself and found CoPilot Live 7 - they say it can be installed on the Diamond even though the website says needs a Micro SD card and from what ive heard they quite good. Any thoughts?
