“Won’t install” problem

There are occasional problems with Android Market that make it impossible to install a paid app. The installation fails because of a locked file. Solutions are to mount the phone on the PC and manually remove “/mnt/secure/asec/smdl2tmp1.asec” or an empty folder named “.android_secure”.

Navigation Issue Solved in Latest Update

Several users reported that their voice stopped working in Google Navigation. The reason was a mismatch between the voice you’ve purchased and the default language on your Android.  Update 2.0.6 of the Classic engine fixes this problem. The UK English voice will be used even if the language setting on your device is US English, and vice versa.

Alternatively if you use the UK English voice you can go to Android Settings -> Language & keyboard -> Select language  and select English (United Kingdom) .
