Garmin Sat. Nav. on 5800

Hi,

I have been told that I can purchase the one off fee of the european map by Garmin to be installed in my Nokia 5800 xpressMusic phone.

At present I have a Garmin Sat Nav which covers the whole of europe.

It seems to me that I can sell it and pay the one off fee to install the garmin europe sat nav into my mobile phone.
As I live in London, I already have the UK navigation in the phone.
Question:

Do you know if it is really possible to place the Garmin map into the phone? Are there subscription fees for this or is it just a one off fee?, etc...

If true then where do i get this please?

 

Thanks

Counsellor

You would have to check on the Garmin web site if they have a compatible version for this phone. I would also advise you to check what the 'one-time' fee that you have heard of includes, ie: do you get software and map data updates with the package? Remember that roads change often so data needs regular updates.

 

Nokia Maps may require a regular licence purchase, but you are guaranteed regular free updates to both the software and the map data. Also, Nokia Maps 3.0 (which is still in Beta version but allegedly due for full launch soon), the licences will be cheaper and cover more - national licences will be no more and you will get at least a regional licence (such as Europe, North America, etc.) for less than the current price of the cheapest Maps 2.0 licence.

Support for Nokia 5800 was added to Garmin Mobile XT V5.00.30 (see http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=3939 under Change History).

 

I'm currently using it on my N85, and it is very stable compared to Nokia Maps 2.0 (haven't tried Maps 3.0). Re-routing is fast, and there is plenty of customisation available. You only have to pay for the software and the maps for the region you want, and that is it, no ongoing charges (unless you want Map updates, in which case you would have to pay for the update).

 

Hope this helps.

 

Cheers,
