    Since the Bing maps update has brought Enyo to all webOS devices, I have decided to port freeTether to Enyo. The next release of freeTether (2.0) will be in Enyo so if you haven't already installed the Bing maps updated do it! Here is a preview of the new UI.

    Hmm...I don't know what to say. I love freeTether, but bing maps definitely does not float my boat.

    Very nice! And I just have to say.... Interesting choice for a passphrase

    Mine-Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G/LTE
    Sprint Pre, 1.4.5 overclocked with F102A Delta Dagger - retired 12-18-11
    Wife's- Sprint LG Viper 4G/LTE
    R.I.P. - My Launch day Pre - 06-06-09--04-18-11

    Never trust a computer (or phone) named after a fruit.

    I'd imagine the enyo framework could be installed separately. Though since the one from the maps download isn't in any doctor I'm not sure where you'd get it from.

    We could probably figure out how to extract the framework from the Bing maps ipk, but seriously, the despite what map site you prefer to use on a normal desktop the Gmaps app hasnt been updated since the day the Pre came out and it sucks donkey balls. The Bing maps app is quite nice.
    giggles and tmox like this.

    New patch came out that allow you to keep google maps if you want and then install bing. BFG maps is also an option if you prefer the google apis.

    is it not also true that the google maps app will quite working soon, as the API it uses is going away? I don't think HP took the somewhat extraordinary step of porting Enyo and bing maps to the old devices just because it amused them... They pretty much had to.

    I heard that - but I cannot confirm it.

    This link from last year talks about Google Map Data API Mostly Obsolete, Google Maps Data API to be Deprecated but goes on to say that the Google Maps API is not going away only the map data one. Google Maps API Profile, Mashups, and News

    Unfortunately, today I had a problem where I experienced a shortcoming with Bing. I needed to know the closest Pilates studios and when I tried "Pilates near Renfrew in Calgary AB", Bing responded with Not Found. Shifted to google maps and got decent results.

    What is the advantage of freeTether over the build-in hotspot?

    freeTether uses your phone's regular data connection. Mobile HotSpot requires a special extra $ data plan from your carrier. freeTether also has USB and Bluetooth tethering support, while MHS is wifi only.

    Thank you - I have tried the integrated hotspot once and it was working, so I assume I have a data plan.
