good price, is it tomtom sat nav?
#2
It is Navicore Satnav. I find its fair, but the Nokia satnav bluetooth reciever seems to take a while to get a lock in most environments, and the net result never seems quite as accurate as tomtom.
#3
tomtom is gods creation lol:) cant be beaten
#4
I bought these seperately. The SATNAV is alright, it works well most of the time, and the maps are updatable for free (with traffic camera info). It's accurate but I think they had some problems getting it squeezed into the 770's RAM.

As for the 770 itself, I love mine... when the kids are hogging my main pc, or I just want to look up a phone number on Yell, or do some light browsing in bed it's amazing.

Voted HOT.

Do you know where to get the satnav software from? I have the 770 and a bluetooth GPS, but the best I can do is Maemo Mapper, which isn't very good for driving!

Voted hot though, nice bit of kit, I paid £80 just for the 770 on its own, so this is a steal with satnav stuff included.

I don't think the Nokia 770 is capable of running tomtom.

Any other satnav just aint the same.

Great price. I dont think TomTom works on this right?
#9
Its a good deal, but not a good bit of kit.

I paid £180 for one of these from Amazon and although I love gadagets, it went straight back. It does not have the full PDA functionality that a lot of people seem to want.

The main unit is slooooooooow and being Linux-based, most mainstream users will find themselves limited. I know a lot of people love Linux and I will probably be flamed for my last sentence, but for mere mortals, it can be annoying.

The screen also looks very, very grainy.

The satnav stuff seemed OK, but my TOMTOM is better by far.

Right. NO tomtom at all

Does anyone know whether the sat nav on the 770 will work across Europe? I'd consider one for for use when driving on holiday.

Also, is it possible to plug in a usb webcam?

It reminded me of the quality of the first DS screens, where you could tell that they were "touch" sensitive. In comparison to my PDA, the screen was awful. It was as if there was a film over it - I actually did to check to see if there was a protective film. :oops:

Right, after the previous WSOD fiasco which ended with me returning it to Expansys for RMA, then hearing people say they got theirs repaired by Nokia, I've taken the plunge again to get this!

After various discounts I get this for £75, bargain! It'll hold me off the ipod touch for now!

This is a great deal.. if I hadn't have gotten one when they were 80 just for the N770 I would have gone for this.

The screen isn't grainy at all to my eye.

As for the PDA functionality, it isn't meant to be a PDA but having said that you can install PDA apps like, tasks etc.

can the memory be upgraded to beyond 1Gb once the software is upgraded or is it strictly just 1GB?

It can take up to 2GB.
#18
how does this compare with the o2 Exec for browsing?
banned#19
Can it also be used to stream my MP3s from my main computer (via my wireless router) and be plugged into my hifi (headphone to phono lead I guess)?

Thanks!

@Flux101, the Nav kit is available seperatly at eXpansys. Currently at £77, but they have had it on offer at £56. If you want it, might pay to keep an eye on their daily specials page (or B Stock list) in case it comes up again.

Bear in mind that many of the descriptions for this product (now amended on eXpansys) stated that it could also be used on Symbian phones and that it supported Traffic Information updates via GPRS. Unfortunately neither is true of the Tablet edition.

As regards speed, yes the software struggles to run on the 770 and is very slow, especially when searching for addresses. The update available via the Navicore web site does improve things a little, but it's still way slower than TomTom on a PDA/Smartphone.

You also have to consider that your tablet may be rendered useless at anytime due to the dreaded WSOD design fault (although covered by warranty) so is it worth investing any more money in the platform?

As regards the tablet itself, there is a new version of the OS2007 Hackers Edition available for the 770 which speeds things up considerably.

I'm still waiting for my faulty replacement to be picked up for repair.

My original one from Expansys went faulty within 2 weeks, and was replaced. The replacement died in 3 weeks with the same fault - WSOD.

Both of them were manufactured in Estonia, and both died after charging, so perhaps either of these were the factor.

i read up abt the WSOD issue, apparently it happens due to a surge into the screen when the device is reset. This time, I'm gonna keep the thing on standby and not reset it!
#30
Matt, mine died in an instant when I plugged the charger in with a flat battery. Had been used more or less daily for 3 months up to that point. Very disappointed as I had assumed it would be OK after this time. I'm just glad I didn't spend loads of money of Nav kit ;)
I'm keen to hear your advice on which is the best way to get a Nokia repair - presumably this is a safer option than getting a replacement which is likely to expire in the same way? Have you read any reports of repaired units suffering a further WSOD?

Does this do anything that a PSP doesn't? (bluetooth and GPS aside)

Thats what I did, which is why it lasted for 3 weeks and not 2! It got to the point where I had to reset the thing as it wasnt running right. This happened a few times and it was after one of the times when I switched it off that it came back on with a duff screen.

Have a look on this page for the problems I'm having getting Nokia to repair the thing.......

I dont know if they replace the faulty part with a part that wont suffer from the same problem. I'd like to think so, but with the experience I've had with Nokia i doubt it. Buying this thing has been nothing but hassle. Brilliant when it works, and it's like peeing into the wind when it doesnt.

Browsing on the PSP and the N770 can't be compared.

PSP resolution is much lower, meaning you have to sidescroll aswell as scroll down. No touch screen dragging makes this a pain.

And the web browser on the PSP is much slower and clunkier. And it can't display large/complex sites as it compains of running out of memory.

In short, PSP is **** as a browser.

Hi, This is a brilliant product in fairness IMHO. WiFi connectivity is excellent for wireless internet whilst at home, a cafe or hotel with a WiFi hotspot. Not sure about the Satnav but the bundle price @ £99.99 sounds good. Amazon.co.uk are a repuitable reseller as well. Whilst have made purchases from Expansys who were selling this product 1-2 months ago their customer service in my experience is nowhere near as good as Amazon.co.uk. Seems a struggle to get a response from them by e-mail. They're basically a box shifter not answering pre and post sales enquiries. Again this is in my experiences with them not necessarily the views of everyone who has bought from them. Voted hot.

Despite some negative posts , this is an excellent piece of kit . I got one of the first from play... for £69 . It has given me no problems , screen res is very good , wi-fi is good ,on-line radio is clear ,rss news feeds are quick .Have an e-mail account on it too .Well worth the money I paid .I would of considered buying this one .............with the satnav but already have TT6 on my Navman & Ubiquio , so I'll pass . I still think this is a good deal though.
