Garmin Mobile XT for Symbian

Does anybody have any experience with this software?

The newest version available in official Garmin web site supports only original bluetooth Garmin GPS.

But I have found the information that it can support internal GPS as well.

Interesting. Id like to hear more if anyone knows about this, such as functions (speed cameras? POI alerts? traffic alerts? Etc).

Hej,
I'm suprised, nobody knows about it, as it is an application which can compete with TomTom.

Here some other useful links:

The garmin site itself is a POS for info on that. Doesnt even say what version it is.

Im tempted to try it, but the garmin website dropdown lists lots of mobiles (including nokias) but not the 6110 (my phone) or the N95.

So Im a bit hesitant about it working with the integreated GPS just because that website says.

I might investigate more on Monday, if I get the time.

The most important links to download the application:

- Garmin Mobile XT Support Files software version 4.xx.xx as of July 11, 2007
http://www8.garmin.com/support/downl...ls.jsp?id=3493

- Garmin Mobile XT for Symbian S60 software version 4.10.20 as of June 21, 2007
http://www8.garmin.com/support/downl...ls.jsp?id=3651

- Garmin Mobile XT Free Basemap software version 4.xx.xx as of April 19, 2007
http://www8.garmin.com/support/downl...ls.jsp?id=3645


The most important statements:
- Provide support for Nokia E90, Nokia 6110 and Nokia N95 devices.
- This update does not add support for built-in GPS receivers.

Application works only with the original Garmin's GPS (Garmin Mobile™ 10 for smartphones)
https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=9796.

There is a newer version of application available in Thailand Garmin web site,
but it doesn't support built-in GPS either.
http://www.garmin.com.tw/products/Ga.../download.html

There is no Garmin GPS proxy for Symbian available yet.

Mmm, I think I'll give it a miss. As much as Id like to review it for you people, it looks like it doesnt work with the internal.

Also, I cant see if it supports speed camera alerts. Its got POI, but it doesnt say anything about adding your own or being able to set distance warnings to POI either.

Although in theory, the new version of tomtom for symbian should be out this month or November.

I have version 4.10.40s60.9, works well, though I've noticed a few issues, just wondering if anyone else has had the following:

Twice now I've had the application lose all my custom settings, points of interest, locations, contacts, etc. The first time the program crashed out all on its own, the second time was simply after shutting down the app and restarting. I haven't been able to reproduce the problem, though both times I did have active routes going.

Altitude is not displayed. Anywhere. The documentation vaguely says it should be in the trip computer. Sadly not there for me.
