ovi maps , gps, a-gps and skype

hello guys

i've come up with a list of skype supported nokia models (from skype website) with GPS capabilities

5800,c6 ,c7,e5,e71,e72 ,e90,n78,n8,n82,n85,n95,n96,x6

it seems that some requires internet connection for ovi maps, is it true? (a-gps)

which one has TRUE gps , turn-by-turn navigation without needing internet connection?

thanks in advance !

Re: ovi maps , gps, a-gps and skype

As per the spesifications.. every model listed above has Integrated GPS..meaning you can use GPS without a network connection...but the Free Lifetime turn-by-turn Navigation is currently available for select models.. Refer this..

On other models you will require to buy a License..

Re: ovi maps , gps, a-gps and skype

hi thanks for the prompt reply. appreciate it

 

i'm a bit clearer now, but still a "bit" confused.

 

am I correct to assume this?

 

1) phones which does not have forever-free turn-by-turn navigation requires license

2) turn by turn navigation requries Internet connection (A-GPS)

3) I can use ovi maps without turn-by-turn navigation with integrated GPS (not A-GPS), but it will be slower

 

there seems to be no clear information. even on that ovi maps link, it says "A-GPS Positioning" and WIFI Positioning, but nothing said about Integrated GPS.

1. You are right..

2. No. it can work with Integrated GPS without a Network connection

3. Yes. you can use it without Voice navigation.. and the only difference with A-GPS will be a faster GPS Lock (i.e. the initial position finding..) once you get the lock there will not be any difference.. The Maps will show you your current location as you move..
