my nokia is N82 ( s60v3). it came with nokia maps loaded which was able to tell route but i was not able to do navigation perse as subscription was necessary for navigation, though it had some good detailing
Yesterday i had for the first time downloaded Garmin XT mobile for my n82.
Thanks Catymag for making 5 hours of hardwork in setting it up and making it a reality. It really works fine i am able to do the navigation but the detailing of the map is not that great ( chennai - tamilnadu - india). But i am really having some fun in doing navigation as i have never done before.
I am seeing that there are a lot more available here for n82 like google maps, sygic etc etc but i have no idea what works better in india and which application is better.
i am looking for navigation software which uses remote GPS (satellite) which uses GPS reciever in n82. i dont have a GPRS plan here nor a bluetooth external device which can aid me .
Can some here tell me what option i have here for doing the navigation free in india and what is the best which i can download from here to get more pleasure out of the GPS navigation ?
advice and enlightenment will be highly appreciated!!
thanks in advance
i am sorry if i have posted this wrongly here. dont know whare to post queries other than garmin. Mods please move it if found inappropriate

Thanks for the info catymag
i already saw the satguide 404 city maps. another user has reported as
Thanks for sharing these maps,its really hard to find new mapset for India.
But I dont think these maps are upgrade to "Garmin City Navigator India 2009 Quarter 4 " as these maps miss lot of POIs around my location also some places which were not their in 2009 Q4 are now marked.
But more dangerous thing is that these maps do not have some roads shown. I myself pointed out one, if you want to check than take a look around this point lat 26.890128°, long 75.794038°.
Not all maps show all POIs but missing an road which joins state highway to another road cannot be neglected. I deleted these maps and switched back to 2009 Q4.
The navigation can only be as good as the map inside. So i will try map my india with sygic and see what is good as per your sugesstion
can garmin and sygic co-exist in the same meory card?. can i install sygic when garmin is inside?
not at all mate!! . thanks for the info. i needed to know this before installing sygic with garmin already present. i thought it will cause some conflicts , since i am very new to this GPS navigationSorry I don't mean to high jack this discussion with catymag, however just to share my experience, both Sygic and Garmin XT can be loaded in the same card on Nokia mobile.
