R66 website doesn't give any mapping info, but I'd love to know how up to date it is, anybody hear details?

Hi,

I have the Samsung i780 and although Route 66 navigate 7 works ok it doesnt use the integrated GPS without gpsgate and the traffic information doesnt work.

Based on this I purchased Route 66 mobile 8 yesterday and the website specifically states that it supports the i-gps - so we'll see.

From all I've read its Q2-2007 map data.

Matt

I have heard that you cannot use custom POI's such as the speed camera database with this version. Any truth in that?

Actually Q2-2007 maps is quite lame for a "just released" application. Other newly released applications use Q1-2008 maps.

I'd be very surprised if it doesn't use custom POIs, and gekko is right, Q2-2007 is 1 year old data before you even load it! I'm not impressed if that's the case!

The All About Symbian review seems to suggest that in built GPS works, however no to custom POIs.

The Symbian version of Route 66 version 7 didn't support custom POI files or warnings, the PPC version did, we will have to see what the new version 8 application can handle in way of custom POI files when it comes out fully for the PDA based devices - Mike

Hi all,

I've just purchased Route 66 Mobile 8 and can confirm it comes with UK Ireland 2007 Q2 and no you can't download your own POIs. I run POI Observer in standalone mode for speed camera warnings.

I also run Destinator 7. Route 66 M8 has far superior and smooth 3D scrolling and you are at the position shown on the map (Destinator always lags behing).

Pete
