When I was at PowerLOC two weeks ago, we also had the chance to play with the one or the other GPS receiver and the most interesting for me was the SD Card sample, PowerLOC had in the office.
So for sure I've tried it how it would fits into a Microsoft Smartphone and the result isn't that surprising at all:
Hmmm... :lol: I wonder if this is the future or if a Bluetooth receiver isn't more convenient to be used with Smartphones! ;-)
Also I wonder - because we discussed this topic for sure too - if you would use a navigation system on your Smartphone and what you would expect from it? Do you need the full blown maps like we already have for Pocket PCs like TomTom or Destinator or would a reduced version with pictograms enough?
I for myself have to admit that a pictogram version (like the right one below) with voice commands would be enough. I'm already using such a "reduced" navigation from Audi in my car instead of the full blown map version (left below).
BTW: The photos above of the Smartphone with GPS receiver are for demonstration only because currently there is no driver available for that GPS card on a Microsoft Smartphone.
Also I've started a poll about which solution you would prefer in the Forum. So please tell me which option you would prefer to see.
