Just what I needed for when driving. Anyone owning an Xperia , do download this one from Sony's site FREE.

Its got 3 screens - A GPS Screen with recording & tracking routes, a Music player and a dialling screen.

That panel sure looks cool and offers good utility as well.

Just revisted the thread today. This is good to know I was also planning for an E71, but that money got uh, spent. The E63 is the next best possibility for me (considering my E90 has GPS) and if the screens are of the same physical size, I'm all the more happy!

I would suggest Garmin Mobile XT symbian edition for your Nokia 6210. Comes with 240 cities below 1000 bucks.

Symbian had to use the "connect" version.

I just checked the website and apparently they have an offline version for Symbian now for 3950/-. I just spoke to their customer care guy (very helpful). The SW can't be downloaded online - they send us a CD. I'm going to buy it today. I asked the guy if we can transfer the license and SW to another phone,and he said there is no problem with that. The license will be active on only one phone at a time (and I have to buy a Symbian phone again, of course).


Garmin Mobile XT will work with E70 with 240 city maps.

Default mapmyindia won't work with N95

I have used google map on my N95 with Airtel, mostly airtel support either GPRS/EDGE, am thinking on getting mapmyindia software MapmyIndia.com Online maps, GPS Navigation, Driving Directions, Local Search on my N95, they have offline map of India and seems to have better support, visit there site and if you like that, get this on, it even have route calculation and turn by turn voice navigation.

-Pramod

But the Mapmyindia non-GPRS version won't work with N95. I suggest Garmin mobile XT symbian. It has 240 city maps now.

Partly because of less demand and partly due to lack of infrastructure in these areas. Till these companies do the needful, we have to rely on Google Maps.

Seems they have released an updated map database where 401 cities are covered. You will get this just for 2000 bucks

Can some kind soul please post pics of the E63 Blue version? AFAIK, there existed only 1 shade of blue. But today a friend told me of a dark blue colour, which looks as good as black.

I went to check out the phone at The Mobile Store, but apparently they are out of stock.

Hi guys,

I am planning for Nokia 5800. Here at Bangalore the price quoted was 19k. Any one knows of better price in either Bangalore/ Hyderabad?

Also, existing users, how is the touch response? anyone facing any issues with the phone?

I bought the phone in Jan for 19100/- (including everything + 1 year warranty free) from Planet M.
They had the best prices in Bangalore , i suggest check with them for prices.
about the phone -
- the original firmware was a bit sluggish.
- unresponsive in the gallery when loaded with videos.
updated to latest firmware v20..
-now the phone phone performance has improved a lot
-issue with gallery is resolved.

-It is a good multimedia phone
-Very good battery backup
-GPS and wifi is nice
-but no USB charging

I would recommend the phone to you.

Thanks for the quick reply. I heard some one saying its now retailing at around 17.5-18k was not able to find at that price in Univercell, and some other shops. Will try Planet M tomorrow.
Should I try @ National Market as well? Does phones from National Market carry 1yr warranty?

Also I was particularly interested to know how the touch sensor responds. Is it like the iphone's response to fingers or like HTC's?

stay away from national market , buy it from a reputed dealer/retailer.

The touch sensitivity is not as good as I-Phone.
It is responsive , but does not have the finesse of the i phone.
The UI is just a simple single touch interface.I dont think it can be compared to I Phone , in-fact LG/Samsung are much better than Nokia in the touch department.
