Free SatNav software (Legal Free) :D

Post by bubbles19 on Tue 7 Dec 2010 - 19:49

Found this link in a mag today which is a free iphone/itouch/ipad app.

Navmii Latest Satellite Navigation Software for Windows Mobile and Nokia S60 devices


Although I've not gone down the iroute (:D) I decided to have a look and see if they did a Windows Mobile version - appears they don't but I did notice that the map data came from openstreetmaps.

after a bit of searching I have come across the following

OpenStreetMap


OpenStreetMap is a free editable map of the whole world. It is made by people like you.

OpenStreetMap allows you to view, edit and use geographical data in a collaborative way from anywhere on Earth.

which led to......

Windows Mobile - OpenStreetMap Wiki


I then decided to try this one (there are many)

MapFactor Navigator Free - OpenStreetMap Wiki


Direct link to the download page.

Navigator Free | mapFactor, s.r.o.


I have download and installed app and maps onto the storage card on our work devices and had a quick try of it tonight.

So far it is quicker than another app that company bought/supplied to us all :)

and I can only assume that if anyone updates the maps then you can then get the updates down to your laptop & then load onto device again (will need to read the destructions to see if this is how it works)lala
