Nice to have a Sansung Galaxy S I9000 this week, as some user said, this adds me “to the glory of Android”
So far, a list of satisfied curiosities are:
Installation: ssh connect/ftp, workpress, sugarsync, unit converter, realCalc etc
Tested: connection with WI FI (with or with out password), bluetooth,
GPS not work offline Navigton comes with Android 2.2, it can cache maps and works offline
Connect to PC using USB, this is simple,
Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB debuggings (selected or ticked)
Settings – About phone – USB settings -> Mass Storage or Ask on connection (for Android 2.1).
Settings – Wireless and Network – USB settings- > Mass Storage or Ask on connection (for Android 2.2)
Uninstall applications without Adroid market
Settings -> Applications -> Manage Application
Tap on one to delete, in the pop up windows, select uninstall
Firmware upgrade from Android 2.1 to Android 2.2 , I just download Kies from Samsung and installed at a window PC and upgraded there. The most pleased fathure after upgrade is the navigton. Navigaton can cache maps (Australian maps ~500MB) to sd card. The GPS navigation is alive without internet connection!! The remaining question how to download maps for other countries???
Two top to-dos
- connect to VPN to access email at work place (SSL VPN clients for Linux or windows works). got error “Unrecognised Server Name, check server name”
- The Navigation software NAVIGON can cache maps at SD card, as result, this GPS navigation can be used without internet connection. However, It only cached Australian maps. is there way to download maps for other countries?
