You can get a Nokia LD and use bluetooth. Also there are cheaper GPS deices available in the market (pm Salil/CBZian) for info on that.
NST works well on phones with inbuilt GPS receivers, though there are versions for non-GPS phones, am not sure how good it is. The N73 doesnt have an inbuilt receiver.Hi,
Was searching for Sports Tracker and saw this thread. Had certain queries......
I have a N73 (Music Edition) and have downloaded the sofware from nokia's site. Version 1.71 which works well for this model. However, when i start the application it asks for a pairing device. Do i need an additional receiver (like LD-3W) or my phone has a built-in receiver. What do i do in order to make my phone a gps receiver. BTW im planning to visit ladakh in sep and would want to utilize the application (Like Praveen did while on his trip to ladakh
To get latitude and longitude info- download or start using Nokia Sports tracker, which is completely free. The hook-up time to the satellite might take a minute or even extend to 10 or 15, so you have to be patient.I got E75 and I could not figure out how to use GPS. I have not activated 90days trial yet.
I could not even get latitude and longitude using default GPS app.
so, some n00b questions
Is there any free offline map available?
If not free then which is best indian map?
how to activate nokia map 90days trial?
how to get latitude and longitudes using GPS?
How accurate is google maps? I feel since it uses the GPRS- it primarily uses the cell tower antennas to show your location.HI Kunal,
You can download Google maps (Mobile version)on your phone. Which is very good and free. I am using it through GPRS Connection. It shows your location, also you can get road directions by specifying start and end location. You can view it in map/satellite/hybrid settings.
Further if you have inbulit or external GPS connection, you can connect it thru also.
Can not be ultimate reliable as the imagery is little old though!
Else you can purchase from mapmyindia. They sale GPS connectors also..around 3K.
Thx popsha. Today i got to use a friends N95 8 GB. Its got an inbuilt receiver. I guess its better to have an inbuilt receiver to avoid connectivity problem... bluetooth et al. Tried markets in del/ggn for the receiver but was informed that the same was not launched in india. Though saw it in amazon for 22 poundsYou can get a Nokia LD and use bluetooth.
