Looks good - good chipset as well. Have some heat n' rep.
#2
There appears to be some question over the "free" software that goes with it. But regardless of the software, this is a good price for a sirf-star III bluetooth receiver.

The only cheaper one I saw was the Orange Accessory store one for £20, but they're long gone now.

So voted hot!
#3
I understand the software will also work on phones with gps (n95 etc) without using the receiver :thumbsup:

To avoid the potential GPRS / Text Costs from a mobile to download the Wayfinder Navigation software, looks like you can download it from http://getwf.com/ on your computer, then transfer it over to your mobile via bluetooth / usb etc

I bought one of these last time round but found(after lots of emails to their rubbish tech support) that the serial key for the Wayfinder software only activates the trial version to the 12 month subscription for Sony P1i phones. Play.com offered a refund as they cannot get other serial numbers from their supplier but I kept it anyway because the receiver is very good for that price alone.
#7
I brought one of these from a different place last year. Never used the software as already had tomtom but the GPS receiver died after a couple of week and wouldn't power up. Might of been a one of, but the quality was VERY low on the receiver.

How does it compare with the Holux GPS Slim 236 from Orange?

dont know how it compares but the Holux is very very good.

I had it for a year or so and reception was always very very good. You can keep the receiver in the car glove compartment and you stillget connection to your phone and also v good reception.

BTW anyone know if you can use the Holux with a Blackberry and Tom Tom?

That might save you the initial cost of downloading the software but you will still get charged each and every time you use the software because it doesn’t come with any pre-installed maps. It downloads information every time you use it. So depending on how much you use it, you’re looking at about 5Mb / month.

The deal is still good if you already have SatNav software on your phone (like TomTom Navigator – which I highly recommend btw) and are just after a Bluetooth GPS device. The next cheapest that I know of is mobilefun.co.uk @ £29.95.

I use this receiver on a SE P1i running Tomtom and I can't fault it. My phone came bundled with this and Wayfinder, but when I realised it charged me for the useage I deleted it and went to Tomtom.
#13
Anyone used this with the N95? Anyone any tips on what software is the best with the N95? Also,does it cost to use GPS on your mobile?
#14
doesnt state which model this is...

I saw on the bay this one: BlueNEXT 20 Channel SiRFStar III Bluetooth GPS Receiver for the same price.
Which one would you suggest?

Garmin XT mobile works a treat on the N95, and it works with the built in GPS so you wouldn't have to buy this :)

Anyone know which model of royaltek is the one sold by play?
#17
I definately reccomend tomtom for any phone. The only thing is that the latest version is 6 from 2006! I think because of all the piracy they're not going to bother with releasing any more and focus on making their own apparantly. I've got a guide from the internet where you can convert version 6 on tomtom one's and old x10 to run the latest maps. Not had i time to mess with that but if i get that working on a mobile phone will let you lot know!

Garmin XT mobile, I find it slow to go thru menus and navigating, but it does work with internal gps.

sygic, is very fast on N95 and loads very quickly and also many times in my tests it displayed house numbers of the road I was on.

These units will probably work better than internal gps atleast on N95.

I have 2 smart phones, an SPV600 running tomtom with updated maps using the Holux 236 external GPS (which I strongly recommend) on windows mobile 5, and the Garmin XT on the Nokia. I admit the tomtom edges it, maps re-draw faster, and has more navigation options.

The Garmin XT has some neat features as well and has an edge over tomtom on the nokia for compatibility with internal GPS. Overall tomtom just shades it but not to the extent of investing in additional hardware to use it over the Garmin. I'm happy with both.

Guys,

Anyone got the wayfinder license code available left over that they didnt use. Id be interested in it if you aren't using it. Not sure if it will work for me but I want to try it on something.

Please PM me if you do.
