I specifically make use of loadstone, free GPS software along with either
my N82 and it's built in GPS, like your 6210, or with my 6680 and an
external Holux M1000 bluetooth unit.


While loadstone doesn't really come with maps etc., you can create your own
checkpoints, and link them into routes etc., and since it's specifically
meant to be used by VI pedestrians etc. it does work better in some
situations as such <smile>

Interms of installing/downloading that voice, while I'll just say that
actually prefer the UK voice myself, you could try browsing to that websit
eon your phone, since on my N82 I can actually browse the web, and try
downloading it directly?

Stay well
