    Well, that was not very successful. I went into my Settings menu, whose icon has had a number "1" sitting on it ever since iOS 6 was launched, into "General, and then to Software Update. It checks for updates, shows iOS 6.0.1 as being available, but he "download and install" button is greyed out. I think it's because I don't have enough free storage on it. It says it needs at least 2.5GB, but mine is almost full.

    I dont think you need all that free storage on your phone, plug it into the computer and have itunes open and it should let you update :)

    I like the new apple one. It has free satnav, turn bu turn with instruction. I didn't like the google directions as you had to move it forward yourself step by step, unless you got another app.

    And it hasn't had a problem finding anywhere for me.

    Has anyone had a problem with it not finding somewhere?

    For some reason it won't install on my iPhone, just says will install, and then nothing happens.

    A6CR, that's what I was doing. Maybe its because my phone is too old, its one of the first iPhones, now about 4 years old, and has the wrong software.

    Ah that's maybe why - what software is he phone running if it was one of he first?

    Most apps require the latest FW to function properly.

    I have no idea what software its running but its four years old. I am pretty sure though that it already has Google maps on it, it has the Google legend in the corner of the map.

    I didn't know there was a jailbreak out for iOS 6 for the iPhone 4s or newer I knew there is a jailbreak for the 3GS and iPod 4th gen on iOS 6.

    Can you pm me the info for the jailbreak you used.
