Hi All

I am hoping some one out there can help me.

I want to install Garmin Mobile XT on my N95 but are getting conflicting storys as to how I obtain a copy of it.

This is the reply I got from a company in NZ recommended to me by Garmin Australia:

"I have talked to Garmin twice about this and both times they tell me that the Moble XT software is free but you need the Garmin
CityNavigator on micro/SD card in your hardware for it to run."

I have been told by other people that I need to buy a copy for about $100 to enable me to use the free NZ maps.

Can some one out there please help me rectify this situation.

Thanks Paul

Google is your friend in these situations.

I just found a link with instructions on how to activate Garmin XT on an N95 for free. You could then use the free NZ auto routing maps (google again) and you will have turn by turn guidance with voice prompts.

I won't post the links here because it isn't legal to obtain Garmin XT this way.
