    Sat NAV Software

    Hey, I'm getting my new phone tomorrow (O2 XDA Orbit 2) and i have been looking into what Sat Nav software to use but I'm not really sure which is the best, has anyone had any experience with this phone and Sat Nav or just Sat Nav software in general?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    I got Garmin Mobile XT on my N95. I'm quite impressed with it... as well as the obvious navigation side, it has on the fly traffic redirection via 3G/GPRS, full access to Garmin Online (info services basically), and it supports speedcam warnings. Everything you need really.

    Only thing I would say is it could do with being a little louder, but that's more the phone than the software

    I have one of these. I got mine with copilot 7 and it works better than the tom tom I use to have. It comes with free camera software too.

    Ahh, that's a point... most of the versions I've seen available are for Symbian. The Orbit is Windows Mobile isn't it?

    EDIT: Ignore me, I'm talking futtocks... it is available for yours, it's on the Garmin website

    Yep its a windows based mobile. I think the phone comes with a trial of copilot 7 so ill give it a go until i can find garmin as ive used a stand alone garmin device and they seem pretty good so if its similar than shoulud do the job.
