( kept touching the screen etc.) also use wifi & your home broadband as your phones data plan will likely take a big dollar hit with the size of navionics charts.
This is a very good phone and navigation device that does exactly what the manufacturer says, and I really like it, ....in fact I think it is better than my previous iphone in that reception is much improved and screen is very clear.
Have not found any bugs with it, only the 'wake up' button is a bit fiddly. Construction is first class ....certainly better than any phone I have had to date.

pls, 19 Oct 2010Does this phone have video call feature?no, it doesnt have video call feature.
I think it is the other way round. Just a couple of people have issues and most really like this phone. I think the A10 is awesome and for the $$ is the best phone out there. I also use Marine Navigation on mine (Navionics) and it works perfectly out of range of any Carrier with its stand alone GPS. (assisted GPS, Aided GPS and Stand alone GPS)
Why is everyone including my self having problems with this phone and yet they keep selling it. Mine does random stuff like going to different screens , i have the widget screen come up half way through other operations i have the alarm not working, the volume change on it's own and yet no fixes !!!!
Love this phone. Basically has two feature n one single device. Android + Garmin

Its all about which operating system you like. For me, i will choose the A10 for its cost, android o/s and Garmin GPS
Got mine on an Optus $29 a month plan with 200mb of data included. I was hoping it would make my Ipod touch redundant and I could put all my music and stuff onto it. I have a 32G SD in it so storage is not a problem. I just don't like the layout for the music and I don't know how to make my own directories for podcasts, etc. Everything is in one directory on the screen, all in alpha order.
Another annoying thing...the volume is set too low on max. I like really loud music sometimes but you just can't get it on this phone. I know there is a thing out there called Audio Hack but I have not been able to get it to work. My phone is "rooted". That was easy. The GPS works well, although "fastest" route takes you weird ways sometimes (or tries to..I ignore it).
This phone is extremely durable! My SUV ran over this phone and it is still intact & scatch free. Watch the video i uploaded in youtube, you'll be amazed!
andy, 10 Oct 2010can anybody pls tell me the GPS coverage for hw many country? many thksAs far as I can tell the Garmin GPS maps cover the country the phone was purchased in (looking at the Garmin Asus site it looks like you can purchase maps for other countries ) and the Google maps do the rest of the world although you would need an internet connection for those to work properly .
Please correct me if I am wrong .

Thanks again and your right this a great phone .

Only thing it ... morethanks l got an a10 with optus last week & its working great so far. had about 600 waypoints to add to the phone & discovered that these are not searchable. they only list by "distance order" and are not sorted "alpha/numeric"...thought there must be a way to fix this and there is! saved my gpx file into a POI folder on my pc, then used garmins POI loader to install onto phone. my 600 waypoints now live in "extras" and now have an alpha/numeric search function! this phone is awesome!

In my experience most problems with the new smartphones is that the users aren't smart enough to read the user manual and the spend countless hours complaining about how bad the phone is . I have owned an A10 since they were first released and have only had a couple of small problems with it and you guessed it they were both solved by reading the manual .
I have one of these handsets as do 2 of my friends. they are horribly buggy.. Always laggy and doing crazy things. Then randomly shuts down programs or freezes and touchpad is unresponsive
