Does anybody still have the dopod ROM for the gps? I think dopod changed their site recently requiring you to have purchased their phone before allowing you to download the new ROM. I would appreciate it if you could send me the file at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
Also - you can download Skype for Mobile - Pocket PC .Works well.Use your headset to hear calls - it's more private !
Go to www.dopodasia.com to upgrade to new ROM version 1.23 with GPS activation. You need Active Sync 4.5 first which is the latest version .
GPS activiation is free but you need to buy the maps etc . You can download Google Maps into this PDA phone too.
I bought one of these but the australian version called the Dopod d810 after the first 3 days i could not start it and have no idea why or even charge it the charge light does not even come on as if its a plastic little box, anyways returned it to optusworld and see if they give me a new one besides this huge problem it was working very well...Tony
HTC will come out with an "official" updated ROM for the p3600 "soon", i'd wait for that instead of using the Dopod ROM. From what i read so far, to update, all you need to do is sync up your phone to your computer and double click the ROM and that's all you need to do. i never done it myself, so you might want to ask around.
Is a ROM update something you can do on your own at home? And where do you get the new ROM in first place? (If it's illegal, post "it's illegal" - I'm just wondering). Thanks
My Dopod D810 just perfect, After I upgraded to the newest ROM I can use GPS using mapking and blackberry
Can anybody tell me what's up with the links in this list? They always direct me back to gsmarena.com instead of the original page...
Alright, let me get this straight:
The P3600 "Trinity" does have GPS capability, however in most cases it is disabled so far. But as I saw today, Vodafone Germany is preparing the launch of the GPS version for the first quarter of this year. Here's the link for those of you who speak German: http://www.teltarif.de/arch/2007/kw04/s24639.html
Thanks Dopod fans,
I read that the official HTC ROM update will be released in a few weeks. I'll wait for that. I was asking about the GPS software, but everything i read so far is that there is NO GPS software pre-installed such as TomTom or Garmin.
HTC P3600 (Dopod D810) has a GPS, all you need to do is download the ROM to activate the GPS hardware, for more info http://www.dopodasia.com/promotion/d810_gps/index.html
Ive had quite a number of pda phones in the past and i can say that the biggest problem ive had with them are:1)poor reception 2)poor battery life 3)slow processor.Is this phone good or even excellent at these categories?Can someone who had the P3600 tell me their view on this?As far as features I can say that this is one of the best in the market right now.My other question is how efficient is the dialling function on this since it doesnt have querty keyboard?Really very interested to get one.
Does this phone have a GPS software installed? what program is it? or do we have to install our own program such as TomTom or do we select which maps to installed? are the maps saved on the phone's hard drive or the mini SD card?
