    My jailbroken 3g has the following using iStat (after cleaning)

    wired 30mb
    Active 15mb
    Inactive 13mb
    Free 11mb
    Device 2.49GB free

    I am trying to sync an app that is 1.39 GB using iTunes. iTunes reports it cannot sync app because I don't have enough memory. I don't understand this.
    I searched all the forum and cannot figure this one out.

    Please help

    It could be a navigation app. I know TomTom is 1.3gb and one of the others is close to 1.8gb.

    Since no one seems to be helping, here's what you need to do.
    Even though you have 2.49GB free, for some big apps(1GB+) like Magellan, you need to have around 3GB of free space just to install. Just delete some stuff, install your Magellan, then sync whatever you deleted back.

    Thanks Achy9. That seems to have worked.
