hi guys.

can you tell me how big the tomtom program and uk maps are roughly. I need to know what size microSD to buy.

also, is there a free bit of software that I can use to test if my gps is working on my phone.

thanks

matt

Hi, I have just installed TomTom 6 on my O2 orbit and it took 286Mb on the memory card, It works fine with no problems.

I use a piece of software called visual GPSce

http://www.visualgps.net/VisualGPSce/default.htm

This is a very simple way of seeing if the GPS is working it also shows the speed and other information.

Hope i am not breaking any rules by posting the url

Have you taken a look at IGO2006 or MioMAP v3.2 ?

Tomtom lacks the polished finish that these two (same core app really) have managed to achieve.

IMO

I agree, I ditched TT in favour of I-Go ... MUCH clearer and more intuitive interface IMHO.
