OMNIA: Questions & Guide

#31 Post by chewitt » Mon Aug 11, 2008 8:07 pm

Hello guys & seniors,

I'm new here. Really need some positive advise from any of you, or other Omnia owner.
With my new Samsung Omnia i900 winmobile 6.1, currently can only run Agis Nav perfectly and 'he' can 'speak' to me.

Extremely like to use malsingmap, but don't know how to integrate malsingmap & AgisNav.

Install GPS Proxy & Garmin Mobile XT, run OK but 'he' can't 'speak'. And frequently hang.

Then install GPS Proxy & Garmin Que 2.9, run OK.(Tooks few days to make it Ok) But 'he' can't 'speak'. So until today can't sleep well.

Any suggestion?

TQ

still headache :ko: but i know i'll buy Omnia eventually.. tangah sudah gatal :mrgreen:
Then I think it is better for you to wait until all the 3 phones are avaliable, so you can test and feel them. Then decide which one to buy.

Before I brought the Omnia, I also had 3 models in mind:
1) Garmin Nuvifone
2) Nokia N96
3) iPhone 3G

But suddently Samsung launched Omnia and I just cannot tahan the itch anymore. :mrgreen:

I really glad that I brought the Omnia, for the reasons that;
1) Don't have to wait for Nuvifone.
2) Had the same amount of memory as N96, but slimmer.
3) Kills the iPhone. :finga:

You had to buy the Garmin Mobile XT for SmartPhone which is available in microSD.

Why do you need to start a new thread on Omnia when there are already several pages of discussion on this thread?

I have the Omnia on the new G4 ROM.
So far, the following have worked with the internal GPS with COM3,COM9-4800
GarminXT 4.2.50
BeeLineGPS
Aegis

I have also got TomTom7 to work however, only with Franson's GPSGate or with my external bluetooth GPS receiver.

Hope to get more news on what you chaps are up to.
