Sat Nav Test - Fail

Had a bit of an outing today...

Went from Bristol, to Plymouth and back via Clovelly and Lynmouth...

The satnav cannot keep a consistant fix for more than about 30 seconds and was constantly doing "route recalculations" even though my position hasn't changed. When it did have a lock it was generally showing me where i was 20 seconds ago, leaving me to try and guess where the blue line went next...

Good job I knew where I was going is all I can say... The previous build of maps 3 was better... Oh, and I downloaded new maps last night so they're totally up to date...

Back to the navman satnav unit for now I think...

The hardware GPS in the N97 is rubbish. I hook up my old 40 eBay generic bluetooth receiver and my Nokia MAPS work fine.
