yes u can You'll need to pre-install maps onto it first. Be aware that you should
do this at a PC, then use the USB connection to copy them across to
avoid costly data charges.
In terms of charges for GPS the Renoir has 2 settings - Stand alone GPS
and AGPS (assisted GPS). Basically, stand alone works exactly like a Tom
Tom - link is made directly to GPS satellites with no data charges but
it takes time to link up and refresh details.
AGPS uses your network's towers to link directly with GPS satalites
through your mobile network. It differs from network to network but you
will incur data charges using it this way. I'd recommend a data bolt on
if you plan on using AGPS as it can be pricey.
To switch between modes, go to Settings, Connectivity, GPS type and select the one you want to use.
In terms of map software, you're best off googling Java GPS applications
- Way Finder is good and Google maps isn't too bad either, but it all
comes down to personal preference.
gps is a hardware. if you have it you have , if you dont you dont. However, you can download and install google maps ver3.0 orabove from either www.maps.google.com or from www.getjar.com and subscribe to Latitude, a free facility from google along with maps. You will not only be able to get your approximate location thru your service providers communication towers, but also be able toshow your own approximate location on yout site or on other's phones who also use google maps.
hi, i dont think it has GPS as in Sat-nav kind of GPS. I think what it meant by GPS is that you can use sattelite signal for the jogging buddy application. However, if you want, you can download google maps which is pretty much the same, except you wont have the voiced directions.
You could also try typing "Java GPS applications" into google and download one of the softwares e.g Amazegps and see how it goes?
the gps on my renoir works fine with orange maps , couldnt get it to work for a while though but seemed to sort itself out, does take a fairly long time to get the positioning but once it found the satellites it worked no problem at all gave me directions to my house... havent used it since but it did take about maybe 15 minutes to find the signal u have to be patient
