Samsung i8910 Omna HD GPS test. GPS lock is quick!

Another good video from the Italian Samsung OMnia HD blog. They have posted a video testing the Omnia HD GPS vs the Samsung Innov8. You’ll be happily surprised has to just have fast that Omnia HD gets a GPS lock inside. (Watch the video and be amazed!) All I can think is it must have a good GPS chip, my Omnia i900 gets a GPS lock indoors but not that fast) This shames my old N95 which had the GPS receiver on the bottom of the phone. I gave up using GPS on that phone.

We know that Route 66 and Garmix XT work on the Samsung Omnia HD. I would like to see Tomtom or Navman on it too.

    What software is used to provide the maps and the tracking in the video? I’m getting the gps lock, and using landmarks, now just need the maps and tracking to be really happy.

    I am using ndrive. I’m not particularily happy with it, but it serves. We used it in Ireland, and use it here in the US. I understand they have an upgrade in the works, but not yet for Symbian. I also use Google Maps but it doesn’t have the voice tracking yet. At such time as they do I’ll probably switch over to it, at least for the US.

    Of cause the lock is fast because the i8910 GPS chip is the Atheros AR1511 which it’s performance is about same par with the SIRF Star III GPS chip (only a bit slower, but with all those GPS+ and A-GPS technic it sure will surpass the StarIII chip where mostly only utilising the offline mode), that’s why the GPS signal tracking is far more fast and better then those Navilink 5.0 GPS chip which use by mostly all the Nokia phone (included N97/N97Mini/X6 maybe even the N900)…
