the battery will not last long if you have your gps & wifi turn on all the time. that consumes lots of power. if you have them turned on, then it will last like 5 hours only. but if you have it turned off, it will last like up to 2 days. besides that, you could also reduce the screen brightness when on battery mode as well as the auto off the screen for power saving.
If you are from asia, then u can use the MapKing. U need to use it with another GPS software such as GPSgate2.0. This software will acquire data from gps. the mapking is just a map. it must use the data delivered by gpsgate2.0. I'm not sure if MapKing could get data directly from the GPS hardware from the PDA. I tried tht before but not working.
so the conclusion is, u have to turn on the Gpsgate, then you can use the MapKing.
I'm frustrated by people searching FM Radio in this type of... hmmm... phone? Damn... If it's SOOOOOOOOOOOOO important to have radio in the begining of 21-st century then, for christ sake, go buy some stupid handsfree with bulit-in radio. It costs how much? 5 USD? 3 USD? Nahhh...
Ohhh... and 'bouth that dumb Simbian/Win "contest"... I have Simbian phone also, and it crashes and freezes even more frequently then WinMob. IMHO this depends on usage and loadout much more then on OS.
Please excuse my bad English.
to LA$J, thanks for replying...
hmm......i think i have to search deeply for the tomtom6 program......sigh....
thanks for ur help anyways :P
to U3%7: hello again.
sorry but is the first time i heard about mapking 2007. i have been searching in the web and i just find maps for asia. if you are from asia it seems to be a good option, but you have to tried because i don't live in asia so, it won't work to me.
the tomtom 6(and maps and igo 8 and all mi stuff): i have found it in emule, you can use any other p2p program because i have search, and i don't find any webpage that have the program.
of course you can buy the program i think in the page of tomtom.
thanks for the recommendations...
i tried looking for tomtom6...had not luck finding it....
do u know where i can find this program?
btw, have u heard of Mapking 2007?
to U3%2: well if you want to use the gps first you have to install a GPS SOFTWARE, ok this are the best i know, you or other people can think diferent.
1) TOMTOM 6 i have it and beliveme is the best(to me) i have travel whit it and my asus, to italy and when i went to michigan in a trip was the most acurate.
2) IGO 8(i dont remember the name) is a very good program is faster never lag, have 3d buildings like google earth(no all the buildings but does the job)
3)destinator 7(my asus came whit the version 6) well i only have the 2 first instal in a 2gb card because i dont like the D6 but i have here good stuff about the destinator 7.
well if you have a gps software just install it and go find signal and you are readie, is like use google earth, and READ THE MANUAL OF YOUR SOFTWARE,
and download free maps and software from emule or other p2p program, is great, and free BUAJAJAJAJAJA sory to much..... jajaja
I have been using this phone for 2 months it is a great phone, very fast, full of features its only problem is the battery which does not last for more than one day for average usage
Although not mentioned within the specifications, it's A2DP (From manual). Meaning it has stereo Bluetooth headset support.
my grps works well here in ksa! everything is in english. trully no regrets in buying this unit.
please please anyone...please teach me how to use the GPS system.....
Why don't you simply read over the specifications above instead of asking obvious questions?
Does anybody know why MSN is not working with me, also, the names of streets in KSA are all in Arabic where the keyboard of the GPS does not support Arabic it seems, Am I right?
To johans: you shall close every time applications through runing programs because Windows Mobile operating sistem have been made so!
Hey, everybody. I bought this phone as it seemed to be the best for me. It was, except for the camera. When taking pictures it sometimes showed a grey line in the lower part of the image as if it couldn't transfer the whole info from the sensor. It was pretty frequent so I changed it for a new one, but it had the same issue, so I had to give it back.
Anyone else had this problem?
Sam: Symbian is great. If we were up to count how many times does windows freeze, our head would expolde. Nokia wanted to put Windows in their PDAs, but after testing they realised that Symbian is better. I dont say that symbian is better (Asus P535 really seems like its great), but I have a symbian phone, and its not CRAP as u said. The truth is, that I didnt try Windows Mobile. Im really looking forward to buy this one, seems to be just perfect to me :)
