    Default nav4all is also a free tool worth looking at.

    Engel mentioned recently that he uses nav4all, and I wish I spotted his post earlier, as it seems to be another great Free mapping tool and also worth looking at.

    Hi JeepOnly,

    Unfortunately (for me) Nav4All currently doesn't support the iMate phones (I assume it currently only runs on Symbian and not on Windows Mobile).

    Will keep an eye on it though

    Cheers

    Default i-mate

    Hi Johann

    Are you sure about this. I just went to the nav4all site and clicked on "installation" then it opens a list for all the makes, and when I clicked on i-mate, it opened a new list showing 16 i-mate models that are supposed to be supported by nav4all.

    I have not tried downloading it as yet, as it is still unclear to me if it actually downloads the SA maps to my phone, or whether it will log onto the Net and browse online maps , and as my 3G bundle was used up last night, I need to slow down a little ! ! ! until the new month comes around

    If you select imate SP5 as the phone the next page says "Soon available" and you cannot do anything except select another phone.

    I'll wait for the "Sonn available" to become "Now available"

    Thanks

    A word of warning!
    When you install the audio, it plays an introduction (loudly).

    Guys

    I do not know anything about GPSes so I need some guidance here. I see on this website they have the software for my phone ( Sony Ericcsons W810i). The Blueteeth GPS module that they talk about, is it a generic thing or is it phone specific and if generic How much R ?,?? and where is the best place to buy one?

    Default Free stuff.

    Hi Bennie,
    Any GPS reader that is Bluetooth compatible will work, and you should be paying in the region of R900.00 to R1200,00 in SA, but if patient and want to import you can get them for around R650 upwards. (Look at something like the Holux GPS Slim236 )

    Having played a little with both of the free versions we have been talking about in these recent posts I actually prefer the Smart2Go over the Nav4All system. My main and only reason is really only because with Smart2Go you actualy download the South African map to your phone as well as the software, so you need to log into a Server much less, as with Nav4All you only download enough software to allow you to log onto the Nav4All server, so you are much more dependant on being able to log onto the Web.
