Posted - 23 oct. 2008 : 14:37:56 Hi!
This is my first post here, thanks for this amazing ressource about GPS!
I am planning to go on a trip through Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and then Australia.
I am seriously considering the N95 as a GPS with moving JPEG as I believe most of these countries have no maps from commercial editors. Im not talking the 8Gb version (too expensive) but the N95 (brand new though, I will purchase it from a store)
Now the question I have: I heard a lot (and I mean a lot) about the N95's early models GPS. Apparantly it's working very well now with the A-GPS but this requires a data connection of any sort to function.
I'd like to know about the performance of a N95 GPS _without_ A-GPS... Is it reliable? Reasonably fast to lock? Or should I forget about the Wifi to make SIP calls when near a hotspot and go for a 6210 Navigator?
I read the review but I suppose Nokia upgraded the GPS stack along with the various new firmwares that came out so the info in this test may be outdated?
I'll post again on the right topic
