    bluetooth/satnav

    Hello, first post so here goes;At the moment I use a iphone 3gs and am dissapointed in the Tomtom app as it will not use the phones bluetooth and therefore I can't hear the verbal instructions in the headset in my crash helmet (the phone works fine). I have a new S2 and before switching to the S2, can anyone here tell me if there is a european satnav app that stores maps on the phone (so NO roaming charges when abroard) and will use the phones bluetooth, I'm not looking for a free app I'll buy Tomtom if it'll work, thanks

    Copilot live is excelent and very reasonably priced. There is also Mapfactor Navigator which is free. Both can be found in google play/market.
    I use both and both work with my bt device and allow spoken directions to come through the car sterio.

    Both apps store maps in the phones internal sd card once downloaded, best done over wifi.

    I agree with Richard John that CoPilot works very well and has the maps you will need, stored on the phone. Use mine with a Plantronics visor bluetooth. Double click the S2's Home key and you go in to Car Mode and can call/text with voice instructions. Very good piece of kit when combined, but you will need a charger for the phone as it will eat your battery.
