I have a query. Right now I'm having a Samsung Galaxy S (first edition or galaxy s1) and will be buying the Samsung Galaxy S3 in June/July during when it will be launched. If i purchase an MMI app in a SD card now for this phone, will i be able to use the same in my new phone? Do the MMI give their maps and software in regular SD card or in micro SD card?

Is there any other way to add Via points other than selecting the place in the screen by touching the area?
It's very tough to do it.
In Google maps we can add Via points by searching the name of the place, which is very easier compare to this one.

@Harshavarthan: I guess that software comes in a CD or DVD which needs to be synched to your mobile device using a computer. Also I think it gets locked to the IMEI of the mobile device on which it is initially used and cannot be reused for another device. You also have a download from the net option which works out quite economical. Please check their website for more details.

On the mobile app there is an option of charting the route itinerary whereby you can add via points by searching the name of the place. I guess the same feature should be available for the HU based GPS device software as well though I am not sure.

I am using the MMI app on my Nokia C6 and it works like a dream. It has been the guiding light on my drive to Kanyakumari and Thiruvanantapuram last year end where otherwise I would have had to waste time asking for directions. Also it saved me a lot of pain since I am not familiar with the language in the places on the route and it would have been difficult to get someone speaking English or Hindi all the time.

First, select your origin and destination. Check the route overview/summary. If you are not satisfied with the recommended route, you can manually change the route by adding via points like this:

Menu>Find location/Find PoI/Building Name/My favourite places>Add a via point.

Then, check the changed route:

Route>Route overview/via points list [you can shift the via points upwards or downwards in the route as you like]

But, there is a problem here. You can only select via points from PoI, cities/towns/localities/villages marked on the map with a name/tag/supported by latitude and longitude. You cannot select a spot which is not categorised under any of these groups. For example, if you want to select an unknown spot on a highway, then selecting that spot by touch screen [after magnifying the map] is the best way. I follow the touch-screen method to insert via points in my MMI Lx130 navigator.

Thanx. I used to add via points by magnifying the map. But the via point through Menu is very muck cumbersome. I tried multiple times and never completed as per my wish. Let try another time

& how is the data usage? Like would you know how much of data you have used like that trip you did to Trivandrum?
Have heard it's a data hogger so even though i have google navigation activated on my android i use it very sparsely.

I am on an 2G data plan of Airtel which is Rs 98 per month with a 2GB limit. Trust me I have never till date used more than 700MB even if I tried hard. We were on the tour for a week and on most days I have used the MMI GPS app but it didnt hog much of the data. However I had to keep the mobile connected to the car charger all the time.

That's the exact plan i am on . Thanks for all the info FasterPhene. Right now the Google navigation which i activated on my phone two weeks back is doing a good job. The only issue is it doesn't announce the upcoming right turn like about 10 seconds earlier like a GPS but right at the point when your almost on top of the turn.

@dilipkumar: Congrats on your MMI 7.0 upgrade. I currently have 6.0 in my CASKA HU and would like to upgrade for 7.0. Please let me know how I can get it done online without having to do the running around.

Thanks in advance

Quick question,

If I get a MMI module for my Pioneer HU (4490BT), will it slow the HU down?
