    yeah, it works, but I think you need to pay for it as well.

    Garmin mobile works great and its a one time fee. Now if only garmin can make it compatible with the S2 its not allowing me to download. Here's a simple concept I would like to see blackberry and wireless vendors figure out. Can we just once have all the compatibility of apps available on launch day? Is that asking too much?

    I had no problem installing Garmin on my Storm 2. If you purchased it you need to call Garmin support. The purchase is tied to your phone number, so no problem getting them to give you a new serial number and a link to the software. Took all of 5 minutes.

    IF you so badly need the GPS then get the Droid... you'd be better off IMO.

    It works fine on m S2! The free trial doesn't work for this version so you need to purchase it before you get a download link.

    So you don't even own an S2 and you recommend a phone that isn't even out yet. Yeah, you're the one they should listen to!

    I had it on my S1 and when I bought the S2 I used the desktop manager to transfer my apps to the new device. Garmin transferred over without a hitch. I didn't have to do a thing - it just worked.

    I'm resurrecting this thread since it has reference to the 2 things I'm trying to drill down to (Storm 2 and Garmin).

    There is no trial so I did buy it...I have a stand alone Garmin and I've trialed Garmin on my Tour and felt reasonably confident this would work for me.

    I, however, am having a couple of issues and a question.

    Issue One: I've noticed 2 distinctly different female voices giving me instruction, and this morning one of them told me to "keep right in 5 miles" and the other told me to "turn left in .2 miles".

    Both of these instructions are accurate for the road I was on, however the pink highlighted route had me turning left. So why did another voice tell me to keep right in 5 miles. This is actually pretty funny now that I'm typing it out...I'm hearing voices from my garmin application.

    Issue Two: I had to make a physical left turn at an intersection that had a red light and the program never told me to turn left. It showed me the left turn, just didn't announce it. It announced the next turn I needed to make after that with no issues. The turn it did not announce was 5 miles after the last turn I had made, so it wasn't a matter of turns being too close together.

    And now my question...isn't there a way for me to look at my route and ask Garmin to route around specific roads? What if I know there's a back up but it hasn't registered in traffic yet? I'm not getting how traffic works in the program, I guess. I don't see an overlay of where the heavy traffic is, and the dedicated traffic icon just gives me bad traffic all around me but it's very difficult to pinpoint from that screen if I'm going to be impacted. Am I missing something?

    I purchased Garmin Mobile when I had my S1 for the same reason, I got tired of paying $10/month for VZ Navigator. It worked great on the S1. I've only had a couple of opportunites to use it on my S2, but seems to work great so far.

    How is the memory management on the Garmin app? Does it do a decent job of clearing up memory used for maps when they are no longer needed? Or is there maybe a "clear cache" menu option?

    Yup, you are right. I have done it with 4 S1 and 1 S2, but all replacement I had was on the same phone number.
