hi, can ne1 tell me about the camera quality?
and what size video does it take and the frame rate?
I'm having trouble with this phone, after some use the screen will not come on when I receive a call, so I'm not able to see who is calling and after that it takes some effort to get the screen to start working again. I called support and they showed me how to Hard reset the phone. This solves the problem but just for a day or two, so I've had to hard reset the phone several times and re-sync it everytime.
For TOMTOM You need to set it up in the tomtom software under "Other NMEA GPS Receiver" Max baud rate (115200)and COM 9. Also set com 9 in the phones GPS settings under the Programs Tab. I must warn that it takes a wile to start getting a "valid GPS signal" Maybe 2 min
Thanx Ali, but is imposible. I have i-mate 9502 and Nav N Go IGO8. Those two don't mix. When I reached com9 on Nav N Go it's stop responding and after 6 hours is on the same state.
So my advice is: Don't buy i-mate 9502 if you want to use it with Nav N GO, or don't buy Nav N Go if you want to use it with i-mate 9502. The main reason why I wanted this i-mate it was because I had 4 devices in one. Internet explorer (which is not working with O2 in Ireland), GPS (which is not working with Nav N GO) Phone, and MP3 Player. As you can see it the working things are at the bottom of my list, so you can figure out yourself how happy I am.
Dan - look for GPS is on in the wireless manager. it is a common mistake for many. then just leave on com9
I have the 8502, and again just like Eten, the after sales support is crap!!!
No response to e-mails...
I'm having problems with the GPS on this device. Can anyone help me to configure this? I've tried all COM's, but nothing. Thanx.
Great phone but battery life is very, very bad. I use about 85% of the total battery power on a daily basis. Tried calling their customer support but have not been able to get a hold of anyone to date. Customer support is non existent.
previously a palm tx, palm OS treo 650, sony ux50, I-mate jasjar user. probably the best phone I've ever owned since the original startec. it looks bigger than it actually is. though you really can't expect a device with this many features to be tiny. Its very easy to operate singlehandedly w/ multitude of dials, hot buttons and the touch screen. screen is beautiful and while the sliding screen does feel little loose, the build quality is surprisingly solid.
only qualm I have the lack of OEM SDHC card support. though I have yet to try out the flash rom or SDHC777. probably give it a try this weekend.
pls can someone post more GPS info - what maps work best etc - is it compitable with TOMTOM Nav 6?
No, i-mate has working ATI drivers and does better than Nokia N95 on Open GL ES 1.0 benchmark. Video also plays back at 30fps
can i keep it silent for a lemeted time ? 5 minuts , 10 minuts .... etc and then it comes back utomaticly like nokia for example?
Pros: great build quality, fast wifi,crisp TV even though its only composite (not VGA), strong GPS signal, quality camera, 640x480 screen is great for remote desktop use (laptop replacement)
cons: battery life(turn on wifi and GPS sparingly, or you will not see the dayout), have to buy your own GPS software, slide out screen feels a little tacky (wobly), customer support is AWOL, & 100 other cons that are more the fault of WM6 than imate.
Summary = I understand the limitations of the tech, and compared with the available choices its a fantastic phone and I love it, best phone I have had.
ps: don't forget to install the remote desktop CAB, IMHO the phone is not worth buying unless your using remote desktop.
stuff the limited mobile browsers, remote to your home PC and use a normal web browser.
wasted so much time being doubtful of this 9502,but now am njoying every cents i spent.everythings work out just freakin smoothly,the VGA display just wow i mean WOW,eyes been hunger 4 that!
this phone is so heavy, it would pull your pants down if you had it in your pocket haha
Is it possible to buy a spare battery for the 9502? According to the i-mate web site, it should, but I cant find any offer in e-shops. The authorised representative of i-mate in my country says "we have no original accesories for the 9502, but they will be introduced soon"
