I was wrong earlier about the time for GPS lock. I tested again just now, it took less than 10 seconds. I will post more details tomorrow.
Ok...this is it...I couldn't wait anymore to post this... I took around an hour to download the Sygic maps.rar files. I unzipped it in my PC and copied it to my N900 root folder. Then opened xterm with root access to install the Sygic Mobile Maps version 9 and the maps of India. I opened the application and managed to activate it with a unique key to my device IMEI.
Finally came down to testing the application. I just went outside my house to see how it works.... The GPS signal locked in like 15 to 20 seconds (a lot faster than Nokia maps which takes like forever) and my location was displayed instantly in 3D like street map..... I am so happyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy....Now my N900 is voice enabled GPS device for India.....I can't wait to take my car out tomorrow. I would post the screenshots of the application soon.. My N900 is so complete now! I was waiting for this day!
I am not bothered anymore if Nokia releases Meego or Nokia Maps voice enabled app for N900 or not!
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2010 In n900 there are no option for video call.beware If you have a Skype account and internet access on your N900 there's an option to use video call. I tried it and loved it. You might also need to update the firmare to 1.2.
Nokia should continue supporting maemo. We want to see more maemo devices coz N900 is just super amazing. Better than android in my opinion
