route 66 mobile 8 with the nokia N78

Just got a reply from the support..

Dear Customer,

Unfortuantely there will not be a short term solution for ROUTE 66 Mobile 8 S60 on the Nokia N78. It has been removed from the compatibility list. We can indeed only offer a refund, which only is possible if the software was purchase in our online shop.

it's a shame.... I was really looking forward to using route 66 but I guess it's not going to happen..

regards,
Bengan63

N95 8gb

I use R66 on the 8GB version of the N95. If you're intending to buy it - don't. It's slower than the older version and the internal GPS is a really, really, really slow starter. It takes between 15 and 20 minutes (yes, minutes!) to get a lock on your position... if it does. Clouds are a big no-no.

If you already own it, R66 works fine on it so long as it has something other than the internal GPS to hang on to. Don't try to install from the DVD - it will try to format your phone (seriously unfunny) - but copy the contents of the image folder and install from your phone's memory instead.

The bigger screen does help with the whole information bar thing - you can use the biggest version and still have a reasonable bit of view of the map ahead.

I've used version 8 through the Benelux, Northern France, and parts of Germany; big plus over version 7 is that it doesn't need you to switch maps anymore.

POI functionality is also much improved.

About the nagging to return to your original route, one comment; TomTom is, if possible, even worse... The 'try to turn around' message in R66 only crops up once every few miles; TomTom just keeps yelling every few seconds.

I'm testing all the gps softs for s60 (route 66. tom tom, navicon, nokia maps, etc) and until now the route 66 is the best one.
- The maps from navteq are more up-to-date than the teleatlas tha is the most used in the other software’s.
- The software is fast and has a nice look.

The only disadvantage for me is with the POI’s not manageable.

Route 66 vs. Nokia Maps

I think Nokia Maps' menu was derived from that of Route 66. Remember, Nokia 6110 Navigatos has Route 66 application. In my experience, Route 66 is user-friendly. On the other hand, Nokia Maps has more detailed maps.
