But do you have to download it via your phone? Isn't there a way to download it from some website then putting it to your phone (Wave 8500 in this case)?

Yes method for offline downloading is already there. Please check Route66 website for method. You need to download map sync software for Wave available free from Route66 website. Upon downloading software will upload map to phone memory.

I am unable to understand how it can get autodeleted? Some virus?
Are you copying through the sync software or through normal windows explorer? (should'nt make a difference though)
Try connecting thru sync software and copying again.
Did you create route 66 login?

My Replies in bold.

I have a feeling it is to do something with Samsung / Route66 not enabling my IMEI or something.

Can anyone else using Wave 2 confirm if they are able to view the India maps on their mobile without having to buy the subscription. Please note,i am not talking about Navigation, just viewing the maps for their cities.

Thanks

I can see the India maps on my Wave without activating navigation. I didn't use the Route 66 software to download, instead I downloaded the maps directly to phone via wifi. Here's how -

Menu -> Navigation -> More -> Contents -> Drive and Walk -> More ... -> India. India maps are around 250 mb, so it takes a while to download the entire package.

Yea I spoke to Samsung Customer care, absolutely useless chaps. Couldn't understand the problem. Later said that they would call back in 2 hours, that was 30 hours ago.

Emailed Route66, they first tried to say that i need to buy the key. When i said there was no way i was gonna pay $50 for something without trying, and also that many of my friends can see the maps without paying a dime, they confirmed that they would be sending my IMEI to Samsung so that a 30 day trail Worldwide navigation license gets pre-activated on my phone.

Guess samsung forgot to pre-activate. Lol.

The response time of Route66 customercare was awesome. I sure hope that is the last of my dealings with Samsung CC.

Ok, so I finally too joined the Bada gang, I bought a Samsung Galaxy 3 in November, nothing against the phone, it's an excellent buy for that price, but felt too small for my fingers. SO went to buy Galaxy Ace, it was available for 14.2K , but inevitable happened and I saw the Wave II and when I held both in my hand, Wave II was the obvious choice for the hardware it has. All I was losing was Android but the kind of usage I have it was ok.

So bought the Wave II for 15.7k and the shopkeeper gave the screen guard for free, so i guess it was a good deal. The phone is amazingly fast and the screen is very good too, so far no issues. Now 2 questions for Pros :


1. I have configured my 2 exchange accounts but am not able to find the Sync frequency setting so that I can chose when I want my e-mails to sync.

2. I'm looking for a case ( don't like the pouch like cover they give along ), I want a plastic case like the ones we have for I phones, where can I get one for Wave II?

@Dieseled - try the following
1. Goto My Accounts
2. Select the Exchange ActiveSync (the account to want to set)
3. You will get the menu which has the setting wheel below the email id.
4. Tap that wheel and it will take you to the Sync Schedule.
Hope this helps

Hi Guys

Am in a conundrum about choosing a phone to replace my trusty but ageing Nokia E51. First I thought of android... the Optimus One seemed an obvious choice, but have heard too many niggling issued about it. At 11k, it is the cheapest option, though.
Then came the Blackberry Pearl 9100... love the keypad and the small touches (like the excellent audio quality, call/sms notification light and ambient light sensor) but given the Indian govt's stand on Blackberry, I don't know whether to take the risk or not.
Samsung Galaxy Ace is good... for overpriced for 15k (plus I heard its battery life is average at best).

The Wave 2 I think may be the best option. Granted, it is 2-3k over my budget (max 13k), but I need this phone to last reliably like my E51 (i.e. at least 2-3 years).

Apart from the lack of apps, (no Angry Birds?), the Wave 2 seems to fit me needs... Good Battery Life, amazing screen and build quality, reliability, excellent video and audio playback... I also need the phone to have good social networking skills, and internet browsing as well. I heard that the speaker (when making calls) is also loud, which is a relief in noisy Indian conditions. (unlike my E51 and the Optimus One).

Just two questions... is the lack of apps really such a letdown (I used an ipod touch before, and frankly, did not use too many apps on it), and secondly, will a new version of Bada come out with improved functionality (will Samsung persist with bada and not let it die, unlike the fate which seems likely to befall Symbian).

Hi, I also joined the BADA gang. I have purchased Samsung Wave 525. Its excellent. The only thing I dont like is the white background. Can it be changed to black.?? I also would like to know some websites from where I can download widgets and themes. It really feels great to be a part of this gang.


Thanks
