GPS Tuner is a piece of crap & their tech support sucks too. Well actually I guess That I can’t say whether or not the program is a piece of crap definitively or not since I never got it to work. I tried loading it on three different devices (Dell X51V, HTC Touch, AT&T Tilt) & had the same exact problem. I don’t remember the specifics but the program wouldn’t load all the way. I tried finding a solution through their forums but I could not post my problem. I had to register on the site which I did several times. They were supposed to send out a email to authenticate your account. I never received the email. Therefore, I could never post on their forum. I sent numerous emails to their support team regarding both issues. Do you think that I ever received a reply? HELL NO! Therefore, I will never, ever try another piece of their software or so much as visit their site.
BTW, I wasn’t the only one having similar issues with GPS Tuner not loading. They released a piece of crap program & failed to test it. Just to note I was running WM6.5 on all three devices at the time. On two of them I did revert back to WM6.1 & had the same exact issue.
