    Of course some people aren't bothered with it ... but having receivers with TTFF's of less than a minute it was a pain for me to wait for my N95, so I use the "better" ones when driving.

    Some device manufacturers have a feature for Assisted-GPS where the device can get GPS data from the network and hasten the TTFF. It all depends on the model if it has one, so check the specs na lang. It may even be called by another name, but Assisted-GPS it still is.

    One of my receivers has the SiRF III chipset (w/o aGPS) and gets a fix in 20 seconds. It's almost ready after I put in my destination. And in the UK, that can be as short as the house number and 7-char postal code - no need to type the street name nor city (the postal code already has that info) ... and I bought that thing a year before the N95 came out of the shops here.

    Ginto pala presyo diyan. At today's exchange rate, the Nuvi 200 costs P5.900 in the UK and P1,000 more for the widescreen version (Nuvi 200W). Mas mura pa siguro sa US. Yun nga lang, the warranty's going to be a pain.

    N95 is really known to be slow to lock-on in it's GPS mode. The newer units equipped with GPS are faster like the 6110 Navigator etc.

    depending on last use and location, my gps equipped phone lock-on takes 30 seconds to 3 minutes.

    the nuvi 250w that i used takes just about the same time (30 seconds - 3 mins) to lock in. and yes, initial lock in takes a long time. most of the time satellite lock-in is almost instant.

    3rd floor... it's the first store on your right on the center corridor (on the left is a video store).

    When you first described your 6110 in earlier posts, you claimed a cold start TTFF of a couple of minutes. The N95 I have takes more than 2 minutes.

    That's a big improvement.

    Useful ba talaga ang GPS sa Metro Manila? Sa sobrang cramp dito with small roads branching everywhere and streets with multiple names, does it help ba?
