Default Installing 3rd party apps?

I would like to be able to install 3rd party apps to the Zen Touch 2 - such as CoPilot Live GPS Navigation. Is this possible? I know that it doesn't have Android Market, but wondering if you can install apps from APK file from microSD card.

If you can find the app online, then all you have to do is copy it to the Touch-2 (with GPS) APK folder. Any app put in there will install when the Touch-2 is unhooked from USB.

Bumping this thread for renewed interest. The Amazon AppStore app works fine on the Touch-2. The market apps listed in the D3's app store thread here also work.

Speaking of third-party apps, does anyone know of a reason why they might refuse to install - or be blocked from installing, for that matter?

I ask mainly because I've been trying to install a couple third-party apps - including a copy of the Android port of Firefox - and I consistently get one of the following two error messages (which one I get seems to be dependent on whether or not there's a microSD card in the expansion slot):

Without microSD card - "Failed to install"
With microSD card - "Application not installed"
