Sat Nav Question Help Please !!!!

Hi , can anybody tell me what sat nav you are using apart from tt6 and the built in sat nav for the n95,

Ie whats the best one out at the moment that supports the built in gps on the n95?

Navicore/route 66/ etc and which ones support speed cams/poi etc and also voice spoken instructions ?

And also links to the cheapest sites to buy the sat nav, hopefully even if you have to buy an older symbian s60 3rd edition sat nav that will work ok , but you have to upgrade for free !!

Hope to get all your comments, and must say i love the n95..

Many thanks from brian

Ha...well theres lots that work with the internal reciever.

Ok, so theres route66

copilot

navigon

navicore (after a fix of sorts)

wayfinder (not popular due to constant data charges).

The following is my personal opinions -

Route66 - meh, Ive had some serious routing issues, but other than that rather large problem, its ok.

Copilot - unsure about how good it is routingwise, but was seriously unimpressed with how it worked. Shocking, shocking menus systems and lack of options.

Navigon - ok, seems to navigate fine, but a bit too basic. Lacking such simple things like being able to add a point on the map as a destination/favourite and you cannot add POI.

I think everyone who wants decent satnav is pinning all their hopes on tomtom and version 7, which sadly no-one has a clue about when (or if) its going to arrive.

It sucks, but thats the current situation.

Oh, theres nokia maps too, but I havent any expirence with that, and I assume thats what you mean when you say the built in one.

If you have an unlimited data package like T-Mobile's Web & Walk or 3's X-Series www.nav4all.co.uk or www.amazegps.com aren't bad for free.

Both work with the internal gps of the N95.
