Nokia 6110 Navigator - GPS performance in Delhi
Recently I purchased the new Nokia 6110 Navigator. Its a nice phone and within the budget. (14,500). Leaving all its other features I would here talk about the GPS capabilities which I experienced during last couple of days.
Firstly, It uses Route 66 navigation software has 8 indian cities map coming bundled with including Delhi+NCR. (for list of cities get to nokia India website). It has got AGPS too.
What you can do with Navigator( I am mentioning the one which we can use here in India):
1. Plan your route
2. Navigation with Voice Guidance assitance.
3. Search for address, landmarks, places of interest etc.
4. Add your GPS position as landmark.
5. View GPS information( Latitude, longitude etc).
6. Select between 3 travel Modes (Fastest, Shortest, Pedestrian).
How it performed:
- Maps of Delhi and NCR are of Q3 2007. I would say the navigation were 85% correct overall.
- The places in the maps are tagged differently, E.g. Neelpadam Apt in vasihali is tagged as Neelpadam Apartment,[Sahibabad Industrial Area]. So one has to get used to these facts.
- It warns of when you enter an area which is not fully coded saying that we may get incorrect driving instructions.
- Searches were pretty fast.
- Satelite connection took some time initially, but is fast enough thereafter. (approx 2 min).
- I was able to connect to 12 satellite at a time.
- Interface was nice and easy with a shortcut button.
- The voice guidance was loud enough to be able to hear in the car.
- The battery backup was satisfactory.
What else you can do for Navigation
- If you have GPRS, can use AGPS
- Install other maps/navigation software other than what comes in the package.
- I was able to install, google maps for mobile, and GMap software.
How it could have been better:
- It has inbuilt 512 MB memory. This should be 1Gb atleast. (One can always purchase it afterwards).
- More highway map. (Route66 will update it)
- Better build quality.
- USB charging capability. (like motorola)
- Car mount in the sales package (Considering it is marketed as GPS Phone)
- The charging port is at the top considering it to be used to mount in a car. That's good.
- Two Camera's
- Decent music player.
- support VOIP calling
- Video Calling
- Use route 66 software in the DVD to update the latest maps and purchase more maps.
Overall its a nice phone. I am pretty satisfied with my decision.

So abbey4u ! Can you download and upgrade the software to include other cities or maps and how about mapmyindia.com website upgrades which i suppose has the maximum coverage of cities and its maps installed.

For Mapmyindia maps I am not sure. Probably one can get in touch with MapmyIndia people to have the info. We need to purchase maps from Mapmyindia if that is supported.
However if you have Gmaps software installed and GPRS connection. Then you can

How is the sound quality i.e. Music and Camera Clarity when compared to a N-series Nokia ?
Care to post some pics clicked by the phone cam ?

Sound quality is good. Not sure if it fares good in comparision with N81 etc. But definitely better than N70. 2.5 mm Jack is there and has some 3d surround etc. Loudspeaker is loud enough to be listened by all in the car

I was shocked when I read the first two words (Nokia 6110) of the title of this thread, because what came to my mind is this: http://www.qua-sar.com/6110.jpg [FONT=arial,sans-serif][SIZE=-1][COLOR=#008000] .[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

Didn't want to start a new thread but need some help regarding using google maps in 6110 navigator, I've few doubts,
1. Are the maps get downloaded one time into the phone memory? Or one need to be in constant touch with the network to use the google maps.
So if there is no network connection then I won't be able to use the google maps ?
How much free memory is required to download google maps?
2. Will navigation work with the google maps ? The route 66 maps doesn't contain many of the highways so I was looking for something better.
3. And if anyone can post me the details how to install the google maps ?Is there any other software needed to be installed ?

Thanks for the detailed info on GPS capabilities of the Nokia 6110.
I have a few questions though:
- How good is the highway coverage?
- Are the maps updated frequently?
- How does using the Nokia navigator compare to using Garmin Nuvi 200 with Open Street Maps?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated as I am planning to buy a GPS solution and need to decide between the two alternatives.
