    New RNS-e SatNav

    I assume some of you have seen the press releases covering VW's tie-up with Google for 3D navigation in future vehicles.

    I've managed to get my own version of it. Check this out....





















    Here's a quick video of it in operation. It's a bit bouncy, but you'll see the blue arrow moving on the screen to show where I am.

    I think the same as Sakkie, but rather with N95.

    Yes it is running on the N95.

    See this thread for what I've done.

    The maps are downloaded as you go so you'll need an internet connection. HSDPA is better than 3G on motorways as travelling at 130km/h means that by the time you've downloaded the current screen you are already out of it.

    I can imagine it would be quite handy in towns\cities though, because you'd be able to see the buildings and whatnot.

    but it's pretty impressive you can get up to 5 satellites in car.

    My N78's gps has been pretty frustrating to use so far, and there's just no chance it'd work in a car.

    At one stage it was picking up 8. I may even have seen 9 once.

    I'm waiting for them to release the tomtom or turn by turn for the 3G iPhone. I have the RNS-E factory fitted in my car but I hate that it doesnt do camera POI's or the like. So it would be nice to have this as a 2ndary backup to provide that information while pottering around and the RNS for the main driving directions.
