I’d barely can’t live a day with google maps as Jakarta is the crowded city in Indonesia. I need to go home as fast as I can, and I just need the Jakarta’s traffic just to have the informations of what route best for me. Google maps have this. It may track the street crowd. Yellow : normal, green : you can run fast. Red : slow or maybe traffic jam. This colors are very informative for us. Try this by activating the traffic mode shown on the above picture.

NDrive Installation on your Xperia X10 Mini Pro

It takes time for me to find what best for my Xperia X10 Mini Pro to find the best offline GPS map. I lived in Indonesia, so before the upgrade of my X10 – used to be android donut version of 1.6 – I used the Sygic offline GPS map. After the latest upgrade – to Android éclair version of 2.1 – they erased all my program. From then on, I am eager to try the new one, NDrive. NDrive is a good application to be installed on your android. X10 Mini Pro has the limited screen, 2.55 inch, so I should carefully find a good program to be installed in. NDrive and Sygic fit best on this phone. I will show you how to install NDrive(Cracked with Indonesian maps) in this post.

Setelah melihat review2 android, memang napsu juga sih beli samsung galaxy spica, tapi setelah itu malah keluar x10 mini trus dilanjut sama x10 mini pro. waaah rupanya malahan keluar nih x10 mini pro yang di launching di selular show yang ada di JHCC beberapa minggu lalu.

Harga launching sih 3.5 jt, harga pameran 3jt, trus harga "happy hour" yang hanya 1 jam saja 2.7jt. Ane dapetnya yang "happy hour", walaupun ngantri berjam2, stock yang tersedia cuma 200 unit dalam waktu >1 jam langsung ludes euy..untung dapet 1. Dengan harga 2,7 jt, saya dapet xperia x10 mini pro + BT handsfree(seharga 300rb) + tas..worth it banget dhe

Setelah melakukan pemakaian, sangat puas dengan device ini..memang sebelum membeli sesuatu saya sudah mereview banyak aspek yang harus saya miliki dalam sebuah handphone, maklum hape jadul saya dulu Hewlett Packard rw6828 yang saya beli taun 2006 masi awet aja ampe sekarang, tapi mo ganti ke windows mobile lagi uda bosan sih oprak opreknya.
