xgps1A couple of days ago Xpgs 1.2 was finally released in Cydia. A lot of new features have been added. Most of them have been posted previously. One thing which hasn’t been mentioned is a new way to create itinerary called Routes manager. Using this function you can compute and save routes for offline use. It let you choose places and addresses as starting and ending point. Please notice that there is currently no support for routes with more than one starting and one ending points. It’s due to a Google limitation and we are working on it.

The new major improvement in this version is the voice instructions support. It uses a Text-To-Speech engine to convert text instructions to sound. So there is no way to change the voice yourself as it is not pre-recorded sound.

xGPS Manager

A new version of xGPS manager is also released. It has been rewritten from scratch and should be more user-friendly and self-explanatory. It is available for Mac OS X and Windows. For Windows users, you should have the Java system installed. Be sure to have it installed (you can download it at the Java Sun Website) before installing xGPS Manager. The manager can be downloaded from the official xGPS website.

    You know xGPS 1.2 is a huge improvement but the voice guide is so annoying. Perhaos it would be better if instead of voice guide saying “Turn Left at Jenny Avenue” it would just play pre recorded human voice guides “Turn left”

    Does this work with unlocked phones e.g i’m using t-mbile in usa.
    It says … unable to get GPS position, the gps currently isn’t giving any position ifnormation … but when I switch to google maps app .. everything works just fine.
    What’s wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    I get the same error as Tarig except I’m on AT&T….so I don’t think it’s a carrier issue
