[access-uk] Re: gps on symbian mobiles

Hi Graham,
In my view, and I have tried a few of them, the Holux receivers are the best
ones.  They even work in your pocket.
 
All the best

is there any particular kind of GPS receiver I should get, or any that I
should avoid?
 
Cheers

Hi Graham,
 
Yes, you could put your hotel in as a waypoint, or favourite as they call
it, and find your way back, just create a route with the hotel as a
destination.  You could then look at the destination screen and it would
tell you how far you have to go.  What you wouldn't hear are interim
waypoints as you pass them.  So not as limited as you think.  Why not
download the trial?
 
All the best

So Steve, to check I understand you, this would mean that if, say I wanted
to find my way back to my hotel, I couldn't put that in as a point of
interest, go out for the evening and then use wayfinder to refind that point
or confirm when I was very near it at least.
 
If that is the case, clearly this limits its usefulness as a mobility aid
though clearly it is better than nothing.
 
Are there any alternatives to wayfinder that work well with TALKS that would
be better in this respect?
 
Cheers
 
Graham

Hi Graham,
 
This is actually incorrect.  You can find out your nearest waypoints.  The
only limitation is that you can't hear waypoints as you pass them.  For
example, if I want my nearest MacDonalds, I can go into search, type in
MacDonalds, and then select "From GPS" as the search location, and Wayfinder
will go away and do the biz.  I can also select from categories such as
Airports, Post Offices, Museums, etc, and just look at all of them, within
any radius you like.  What I can't do though, is hear those Waypoints as I
pass them.  But browsing your locale is a snap.
 
All the best

Hi all.
I am interested in getting GPS for my Nokia 6630.
I know that Talks works with Wayfinder but I understand that you can get
directions about a route with wayfinder but not just explore your area.
So, if I am staying in a hotel as I understand it, I can't find out what
points of interest are around me then find a route to them.  If this is
correct,
this is clearly a limitation so I have 2 questions.
1 is WayFinder likely to add the explore my area type feature to it's
capability and secondly, are systems like TomTom in its various guises
likely to be
accessible to phones running TALKS soon?
Regards
