The 'My Files' app not optimal.

Anyone ever notice that, in the My Files app, if you have it set to list by time, it puts the "external_SD" - their name for your SD-card (another annoying issue itself) - folder at the bottom of the...

Any way to dim the screen more?

I'd like to be able to use my SGP in the dark without being blinded by the screen. Are there any software solutions that will expand the range of dimness below the factory setting?

SGP keeps trying to sync without my permission.

Up until about a week ago, whenever my SGP4 would start to automatically sync with something online, I could quickly go into the top bar menu, turn off the wifi and that would be the end of whatever...

New production has ended but, my 4" is still problem-free. It would be great to be able to buy something similar though. I guess de-activated smartphones are in my future, eventually.

Navfree not finding my state map.

I've been using Navfree on my Samsung Galaxy Player w/Android Gingerbread, since approximately January of 2012. When they improved the app so that the maps could be stored on the SD-card, I decided...

I'll have to disagree with you here. Driving is a "both hands on the wheel" affair. Fondling a GPS unit in your hand, especially inputting things into it while on the move, is akin to texting while...

Agreed![/quote]


The hold-able device is safer, because you bring it into your field of view, whereas the device that's too big to hold while driving requires a holder, which is not where your...

I'm glad I have the 4.0 and not the 5.0. The 5.0 is considerably less usable for one-handed activities, one of which is GPS while driving.

Wow, $60 more for the 4.0? Last time I checked, the 4.0 was about $50 less than the 4.2.
I think the two devices would appeal to different people. If you value sound clarity when listening to it...

Hey, it has a link for "PICS". It's misleading though, as there aren't any images there.


I hope not. Somewhere between 4-5 inches and able to be used one-handed, is the sweetspot for me. If...

I find the hand-held nature of the SGP safer to use than a head unit's display. With the SGP in hand, I can bring it up to where I can see both it and the road at the same time. I also find it...

That's really strange terminology, like a bad translation. I've saved pics with the SGP 4.0 and don't believe I would've chosen something that said "share" in order to do it.

Have you considered TuneIn as an alternative app? That works great for me. I've seen people liking it better than iHeartRadio.

People should know that the SGP uses the micro SD only to read files put there from an external source. Since Android can't write to the card, there's no advantage in having a card in the SGP that's...

It takes only a little bit longer to get accustomed to interacting with the smaller screen of the 4.0. I'm glad it's not bigger, as it seems to me to be the perfect size.
