I tried the new beta 1.39 which supports full screen 480x320 now. All buttons for navigation are seen. 3D navigation looks much better. It seems that there is still 10mm room above the 3D map. Voice sounds much better on the TH55 then on the NZ90.
I was a little bit concerned that they would stop support because of Sonyís decision stopping producing Clieís for US and Europe.
With the 32Mb of memory there is enough room for Maps together with Bluetooth (European model) itís a good combination. Itís a little bit slower than my previous NZ90 but longer battery power and nicer shape instead.
I've been using Navigator 1.3 for a couple of weeks now and, with the exception of the TH55 support issue, it works great (I have just downloaded the latest beta and will give that a whirl). I use a Dconnex BT GPS which works just fine -it has lost the connection now and then but so did my old Holux GPS mouse.
As for maps, I use MSMount and keep my most used maps in a MSMount folder on my memory card. With a 256mb card I am able to store all my country maps and the UK major roads map on one card, with a copy of the central Scotland maps in the MSMount folder. With MSMount enabled the system thinks that the maps in the relevant folder are already in RAM, so the usual system of maps being copied temporarily to RAM is avoided - leaves me with 20mb of RAM still to find software to fill!!
I came, I saw, I couldn't be bothered

Just loaded the beta up. Nice! They added a directory thingy when you tap on the line to enter where maps are on the card that shows all the different trees. Handy! I always forgot if I did "palm/map" or "palm/programs/map".
The UK TH55 makes a nice little geocaching pda now...

The newest beta, 2.05 is doing some very complex map loading. It's designed for people who want to keep a lot of maps, arranged in folders (by state, etc.) and be able to route across numerous maps. For details on what is going on behind the scenes with this beta, go here:
I guess they still haven't updated that link. It's not anything you're doing wrong. It didn't work full screen for me and I let them know about it on their forum. I am running a version 1.39 that does work full screen on the TH55!
