used the sat nav to get to daves(chemical guys uk) unit again at cambuslang.. didn't take me the scenic root, but once again it said i was at my destination about half a mile before i was.. 
last time i was lost at that point and had to use google maps on my phone to find it.
this time i knew where i was going

That usually happens when you just put in a postcode rather than a street/road with a No.  as it is the general locality.

I think the 'eco' option is where she asks you to get out and push to save the planet LOL.

You can buy mine LOADSAQASH.  I've put the 2008 back in (see earlier post).  It was easy to change - and change back - just follow the onscreen instructions.
 
The 2010 was just under ú100 from my Nissan dealer if I remember rightly.  Check out the Ebay prices and let me know if you want to make me an offer I can't refuse.

I just noticed this.
Question: does your HTC  navigation connect to your car's bluetooth, so that the voice comes through the car rather than through the phone? I'm trying to get mine to do this but it doesn't seem to want to play ball Cry


Kitty,

I have a Samsung Galaxy S 2 (same android operating system I believe as the HTC) and this connects via bluetooth and plays the voice guidence for the phones Satnav through the car speakers (according to my kids anyway, poor little souls were covering there ears!!!! lol) I have an N-TEC QQ + 2 on 11 plate with Connect
2011 Qashqai + 2 N-TEC 1.5 dci in Nightshade



Remember, you dont have to be able to run faster than the bear....Just faster than the slowest person the bear is chasing!!!

Hi Lyric, thanks.
Ah, I will try again then. It would be a shame if it didn't come through the car speakers because I sometimes like to play my music quite loud which would obviously drown out the phone's navigation and kinda defeat the object...

But hey, if it doesn't work on my older QQ, then I'll just have to accept it Unhappy at least I tried.

LOL your poor children!

Oh, the answer could be simple. Rip your favourite CDs and copy them onto the Phone's memory to play them. Any phone capable of navigation is also going to be able to play MP3s, i'm sure. Many (if not all) Androids have an FM radio built in, too. This is what I do and it works well enough. It has an additional advantage, actually, of keeping the BlueTooth permanently connected. Without the music the bluetooth takes a second to "face in" the nav's announcements - leading to missing the first few words of some announcements.

Oddly enough the stupid cow got me thoroughly stranded on the M3 today. Apparently incapable of understanding that the Black roads are the ones you're NOT supposed to be driving on.

It's really not very good, as modern sat-navs go.
