Returned my A10 today after weeks of it randomly activating its sensor buttons. You could be sitting there with the phone on and the widget screen would come up then back to the home screen then a settings screen. This even happened while driving using the NAV app.
I dont believe this is software but more a hardware issue as I could make the vibration of a key press occur by squeezing both sides of the case and having nothing near the home or back button.
Very nice handset

Anonymous, 12 Jul 2010how is the garmin navigation app on the phone? how good is it?Its a miss of a smart phone. The screen is too small to use in a car so unless you are walking and need directions then buy a Tom Tom or something of the like. You just can't throw a phone like this up in the company of the Samsung Galaxy S and the new iPhone 4 and expect it to be a hit. Would have been the bee's knee's 2 years ago...

Just bought the phone-3 days ago. I have an imac and thought I would try out the photo's. So I took some and then tried to send them by bluetooth to my iphoto map. Well that does not work. I could/can only send them to picasa. Is it possible to send photo's by bluetooth to my computer?

Ross, 03 Jul 2010Yes it does have wifi. Haven't used it yet as I need to find my encryption key...Had this phone only for a few days, been a Nokia boy all my life... finding it hard to learn this system, but, im certainly warming to it, have it auto syncing with Wifi at home, and only using the data out and about... Which is handy for downloading big files, and browsing lots.
Can thoroughly recommend it, no idea about battery life as its in the charger or cradle, but the GPS is better than my navman!!!

This is my first smartphone too. I'm enjoying it. Seems easy enough to use. Like Vic said earlier, some sort of leather case would be good.
Btw, how do you protect the screen from bumps and scratches?
Also, haven't tried it yet, but i'm hoping that I can import a new notification sound like you can a ringtone... :)
does it have wifi
great! this means that we shall get an android garmin, even if garmin dosn't release it to other android handsets hackers and developers would do the job!
Bought the A10 2 days ago - having a wonderful experience so far; it has the advantage too, of not constantly polling the network like, say, that other really over-popular smartphone we all know about. This will mean the data usage will be more manageable (read: cheaper) - and theres not much out there that can beat a $29 plan with a $0 smartphone. Userbility - agreed, a little fiddly - but a lot of fun!
stephen, 27 Jun 2010Hello. I am very sorry to hear about your experience with the A10. I am a salesperson for Optu... moreI'll try to return my phone but I am pretty sure there needs to be a hardware problem to get a new handset. After using the phone for a week the major problem I have with it now that I can't get used to is that it is now taking me 30+ tries pressing the back button for it to work. This happens on every piece software or every piece of the user interface except the desktop. I have the phone set to vibrate on key presses. While on the desktop I can tell that the slightest touch registers as a key press. Also while pressing many times in a row I can feel that every touch registers as a key press. So there is no hardware problem with this, it is simply a software problem. I don't know how the software is this bad.
Garmin_v, 27 Jun 2010GPS is on by default. You can turn off GPS by Settings -> System -> Security & Locat... moreJust to clarify about Garmins support.
When I called the support line the guy on the phone told me that Garmin only supported the navigation side of the phone.
The hardware side was not a Garmin problem and that I had to call optus to get it fixed.
I did ask him again just to make sure.
stephen, 27 Jun 2010Hello. I am very sorry to hear about your experience with the A10. I am a salesperson for Optu... moreI will ring sales tomorrow and talk to them about it.
The phone has worked okay today but i must be very unlucky for some reason.
Can anyone explain what usb polling means
