HTC Touch Diamond 2

#1 Post by dachyron » Tue Oct 13, 2009 5:15 pm

Hi, I just got a HTC Touch Diamond 2. Does it really have a GPS built in? If yes, what software and maps is recommended for use in it?

Also, I am going over to Australia end of the year and it would be nice if I could load an Aussie map (free if possible) for use there. Anyone can help?

Your phone should have internal GPS receiver. Maybe you can check which GPS brand is more popular in Australia. But I think Garmin should be one of them.

Maybe you would like to try out Garmin Mobile XT. You can read this for more info.

As for maps, read this.

Sorry, there is no free navigation software for mobile devices that can read MSM map. While a long time ago when the map format was not yet in NT (or NT-like) format, Garmin Que is freely available and able to use MSM, but now you either need Garmin Mobile XT (free to use if you pair it with Garmin BT GPS receiver, but need to buy, if you pair with other non-Garmin receivers incl. those built-in ones), or Mapking.
