Garmin GPS - ? Need to pay GPS fee

#1 Post by ctct » Tue Oct 28, 2008 5:22 pm

May I check whether we have to pay additional fee to use GPS? For e.g. for Nokia N95, need to pay >$100 a year for the navigation.
Thank you.

No, except for the original Garmin map, if u intend to buy, you don't have to pay a single cent to use GPS on a dedicated Garmin GPS device.

Thank you.
Yes, you have to pay USD1,000.00 per month to use the service. In addition, you need to get a special licence from the Ministry of Finance for the annual AP. If you intent to use it in a car with more than 2,000 cc, you need to pay additional 50% road tax plus service charges.

You also need to attend special traning provided by the ministry of telecomunication on the proper use of GPS. The traning will teach you how to avoid driving into a river when your gps told you to do so.

Pay to use GARMIN on a cell phone?

#9 Post by lt eng » Wed Oct 29, 2008 11:15 pm

Hi there, I'm a newbie in GPS.....experimenting it with my cellphone Nokia 6220 Classic. Had Garmin installed a week ago. Ph came with AGPS with NokiaMaps preinstalled but I am not using it. My question is :- Is there any charges (when ph is locking on to setellites, during navigation, etc.) by my network provider when i use the programme? Sorry if this sounds stupid! Thanks.

In AGPS mode, yes.
