Talking 4GB SDHC from Sandisk definetely on N95

http://n95blog.com/great-news-sandis...ith-nokia-n95/
http://www.sandisk.com/Compatibility...Nokia-N95.aspx
http://www.sandisk.com/Products/Prod...o.aspx?ID=2369

Hopefully as this card comes with USB 2.0 reader/writer and its a much faster card because its SDHC we will be able to transfer data much faster?

Anyone know if the N95 will work at full speed with it?

Now Tomtom becomes a realistic alternative

Two Internet stores have it in stock in Sweden today. Friday, they did not. I checked.

With a 4 GB card, I may consider Tomtom as a GPS app. Before, I thought it was a really bad idea. I suppose the maps requires something between 0.5 and 1 GB. With a 4 GB card it's very much reasonable suddenly.

TomTom is the best GPS sw by far, I have maps on my N95 (no good) Wayfinder on my W950 and TomTom Navigator6 on my P990 its the only one worth buying, would you be able to use the inbuilt GPS reciever of the N95 with TomTom?

I don't understand that sentence fully. But I wonder, what exactly do you prefer with Tomtom that you don't like with Wayfinder. (I assume that you compare with remodelled Wayfinder 7, not old version 6.)

TomTom with UK maps fits on a 256MB card, so 4GB for Tomtom isnt neccessary, as most countries are less than 300MB. Unless you're going for a lot of maps, or you keep alot of other stuff on your memory card.

Well, I wouldn't settle for anything less than Western Europe at least on my mobile phone. So what you say is a bit worrying. But I seem to remember that it wasn't that bad...

I can't see them:

https://shop.o2.co.uk/accessories?fi...emory&x=32&y=9

I also want a 4GB card. I want a card that purely has all the GPS stuff on it. I also want to try out maybe 2 or 3 different packages on the same card and I want to make sure I have both the UK and pretty much all of Western Europe covered on all of the packages I use. So 4GB might even be a bit of a squeeze.

Cant find them on the o2 website, but o2 website only has 3 memory cards on it so not the best place to look. How much are they in o2 stores?

Anyone know when to expect imports on eBay?

No!!! Don't buy memory on eBay. Virtually every piece of memory for all the gadgets I have ever owned (which is quite a lot) when I bought memory off of eBay, it turned out to be fake.

It just isn't worth the risk

Strangely (for reasons I don't quite get yet) Amazon (since it did used to be expensive) have some really pretty dirt cheap prices these days - and if there ever is a problem, they are much easier to deal with than eBay is.

Fair point. How much are 4GB SDHC in o2 stores?

Picked up an 4gb card in O2 shop in Milton Keynes lastnight. 59 quid I think it was. Wasn't on the shelves but I called to confirm stock and they had them in the back. Took it home and copied my 2gb card to the new card, which comes with a USB reader and a SD adapter. Back in the phone and it works a treat. Very happy. Have tomtom6 Western Europe installed (950 mb), nokia maps for uk and most of France (~300mb) and about 850mb of MP3s plus odds and sods and still have 1.8gb free!

Brilliant! And here's me just went and bought another 2GB card (so 3 in total now) last night when I figured that stocks would be scarce for a long time and prices would be very high. £59 quid though isn't too steep.

Oh well, I guess the only consolation is that the 3 x 2GB cards were still cheaper than the 1 4GB card. Not that I care. I'm lazy. I don't want to have to keep swapping cards. With the 4GB I can pretty much have all three GPS packages (TomTom, Route 66, and the Native GBS 'Maps' package) on one card. Or at the very least I can have one package, with the largest part of the world covered, which is probably more sensible once I have worked out which package I like best (although I don't think I will be able to do all of America too as this is usually about 4GB+ on its own). What we really need is a minimum of 8GB - but that isn't projected to happen for another 2 years at least.

Just out of interest, since there have been so many conficting reports (some say it does work, some say that it doesn't) can you tell us what 'brand' your phone is (if any) and what firmware version you are using?

Thanks!
