    Orange SPV C600
  1. I quite like the windows default homescreen but it is not very good at displaying photos. I have a picture of my partner on the homescreen I am looking for a version exacly the same as it but with out the hightighted items which obscure the photo
  2. No i doubt it would be suitable for hiking, it only supports roads see my post on route 66 major problems Try http://www.memory-map.co.uk/ it has free mobile software with it when you buy it
  3. Just to let you know the system sufferd a major crash again and casued major upset to my phone, The phone itself took several restarts to get it back together again and I lost all the self spellings in my SMS dictionary for some reason Route 66 will now not start up again even after after full reinstall. I have emailed route 66 requesting to return the product for a full refund. I think ill get myself a standalone tom tom unit when i can afford one and stick with a paper map from now on.
  4. Well im not entirely sure if it is the actual text messages that are doing it or some sort of general memory problem, but then again i have very little stored in the phones memory. I today was expeimenting with the house numbers, which seemed to work but whilst i was in the student union, 66 failed to start, ie crashed on the GPS screen (no gps paired) and aborted, I tried it later in quieter area and it worked. I got the WILD GUESS that it could have possibly been to do with the phone trying to pair with other Bluetooth devices in the union and hence crashing, so you could be right in making sure the GPS is on 1st (which I generally do) A list of things to Route 66 would be good, seems to work well on this forum.
  5. Looks like you had very simiar issues to me, check your messaging inbox (and deleted items) is not too full and make sure you restart the phone before use. I used to use task manager to clear all my oped applications instead of restarting the phone but reserting seems kinder to the phone. Not had an issue with the speed cameras but I noticed some speed cameras were not shown and others were (maybe just a new camera) Mine doesnt seem to recognise the contacts in the address book either, that looks like a bug. I have managed to recieve a call (over bluetooth headset) with the navigator still working, it resumed after the call ended, had to hit the back button till 66 reappeared, it pasued navigation whilst i was in a call so luckily my caller didnt here "at the roundabout take the 3rd exit" down the phone. Cant seem to get the house numbers working yet, will try properly later. Do you know if it is possible to cancel a navigation?
  6. Well i did phone the support line and they basically said that i have a corrupt file somewhere and need to factory reset my phone and reinstall route 66 which i did, and it worked Couple of days later It stopped working again, no apprant reason, no major configuation changes to phone, called support back they told me to do exacly the same, which i ignored because its a pain. After messing about i discovered that it doesnt like too many text messages in the phone, so you have to make sure that they re cleared before you use them and the phone needs a restart before you can use route 66 Once this is done it seems to work fine. BTW, does it support use of house numbers as well or just postcodes?
  7. Does anyone have route 66 and can share experiences I have purchased the route 66 Mobile 7 WMS for my Orange SPV C600 and have been having continual problems since installation. My first problem I had was that I installed the software onto the memory card as per the instructions, the setup on the phone got as far as the map selection screen and then the whole programme abruptly exited. I called route 66 customer support and they said to install the update patch on the website, which I did, to the instructions but got exactly the same thing. I called them back and they told me to cold boot my phone (factory reset) which I did, the software installed and worked successfully even after reboots. Come to use it the following day the software wouldn’t start, just went to the 1st GPS screen then abruptly exited. I have not changed the configuration since then, Hope you can help me sort it out
  8. I have noticed that there are Bluetooth dongles avaliable now that work up to 20 metres, whereas my bluetooth dongle is 10. Could anyone tell me if the Orange SPV C600 is compatible with this range, and whether its worth upgrading my dongle to get a better range in my house, albiet limited anyway.
  9. I would like some help in choosing some GPS software for my smartphone. I have an Orange SPV C600 and got a GPS Bluetooth reciever for xmas, so far i have tried the free trial software availaible and none of them have really worked, or have been suited to my needs. I would like the following - In Car Navigation - Hiking Navigation (Maps not important) I dont mind paying a little bit for software but not a fortune, cos its only for occational use / toys I have seen some Tom Tom Mobile 5 software on ebay but im scared of being fobbed off / or wont work on my phone. Sorry if its a broad question but can anyone help?
  10. Well I havent needed to either, I went out the other day to another town and picked up the E symbol very patchy coverage and mostly in the sticks but couldnt try it becasue i was moving. However for some reason I managed to be in Edge coverage last night in my home town (which is Orange 3G covered) and the data speeds were fantastic. Also emailed orange, they confirmed that there is no coverage map avaliable but said my phone would show an E when in coverage
  11. HKLM\Drivers\BuiltIn\RIL dword: EnableDifferGprsEdgeIcon = 1 But this reg key was on already, so will have to investigate
  12. I have just upgraded to the SPV C600 and understand it is EDGE compatible Does anyone know where I can find a Coverage Map for EDGE, the Orange website has little infomation.
  13. I am currenltly using Orange Mail for my email provision however due to increase in spam, low storage capacity, poor web user interface, and reduced need for text alerts I am considering changing. This post may seem a little off topic but becasue I want to use it with my Phone i would like to ask for help What I requre : Pop access - Mainly for mobile use where I send and recieve more urgent mail. Can be used for Outlook Outlook access - Main interface for my use of email Web access - Requred when Im away from my pc, but web access is increasingl looking to replace Outlook because you dont actuall have to sync as much (except to mobile) Sync - I need to be able to sync calendar and contacts over Outlook, Web and Phone Spam - I requre better protection than orange I have so far been looking at GMail, Yahoo and Hotmail, all provide pop/http links to outlook , Hotmail doesnt do POP for mobile but has a good wap interface which i could compromise with. None of them seem to allow sync, but Orange does
  14. Unfortunatley although T Mobile a re very good customer services and tarrif wise, they dont meet my expections for coverage, theyve had years to sort it out and they havent. My plan now seems to be to stick with the C550 and move to PAYG but, what is the point when I could just upgrade to the C600, ok I dont think it would give me that many advantages over what I have now but I guess more refined with the Mobile 5 Version and would solve my problem with the occational 0 and # buttons not working. As I said I dont really want the hassle of changing networks, upgrading may be the simplest option.
