I'm finding that it's quite difficult to acquire 3 satellites when walking the streets in Brussels. I suspect all the concrete buildings and narrow streets are the hinderance. Is there an alternativ ...

I never attempted to get mapolis going on the m130 w/ gps. However, I'm seeing a better option, possibly. The Delorme Earthmate GPS LT-40 is quite cheap, and supports palmos as old as 3.5.

What is the OS? Is it a Symbian variant or something new?
It uses Maemo, which is a variant of Debian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_N800).

BTW, I didn't think Symbian was linux. I keep ...

Has anyone attempted to run TTN6 on a PalmOS emulator?

I'm assuming TomTom does not make a linux version that will run on a Nokia N800, but there is a Palm emulator for linux.

The Nokia N800 (an open, portable, linux platform) has an option called the Nokia Navigation Kit - which costs as much as the device. I have my own BT GPS receiver, which could theoretically connect ...

I am a pilot, so your feedback was indeed helpful. Though the price is nuts, perhaps even for aviation.

I figured the s/w would be lacking; but then I could always take an interest in writing it m ...

I've noticed only high-end all-in-one nav systems have gyroscope support. I've been searching around for a bluetooth or even serial gyroscope, so PDA users can get the same feature, with no success. ...

Good finds people! Could be useful for advanced planning.

I hope Google Maps for Palm will talk directly to TTN6 for palm at some point. Also looks like GE for the Mac doesn't support it yet.. ...

Do you have a link? I cannot find Google Earth for Palm, do you perhaps mean Google Maps?

You appear to be confused as to what Google Earth is. Firstly it is a desktop application for a PC or Mac, it cannot be used on a PDA of any sort.
Google makes a version for PalmOS, downloadable as ...

TomTom has a lousy, out of date and sparse yellowpage directory - even when a new map has been released. And traffic information costs a subscription. Google Earth has much better up to date busines ...
