This Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V features a GPS receiver, which took less than 3 . 5 minutes to get satellite lock at a cold start. You can use the A-GPS functionality for getting near instantaneous locks or the network positioning when you only need a rough idea of this location.
Our unit came with Atlases 6. 0. 2 out of this box, which gives you access into a great features. Offline rerouting is one – when you stray off course, Maps will recalculate the route with no need for an Internet connection. You can’t change the destination with not a connection though. There are also 3 dimensional buildings, two finger rotation, tilting and many others.
Of course, those features aren’t readily available everywhere. 3D buildings are available mostly from the biggest world cities.
Turn-by-turn voice guidance using Google Maps Navigation should be only available in select countries and unless you live in at least one the best you can do is usually plan a route in advance and be mindful of your current location during travel.
Neighborhood view is, as usual, a section of the standard package - it gives that you panoramic view of every bit of road from the covered areas. With the compass manner enabled, it feels like a virtual tour on the place!
Our Xperia neo V sported Wisepilot pre-installed with 30 days trial run navigation license. It took it really long to have a GPS lock with every GPS setting started, but then it does what a SatNav software is meant to - navigate (with style guidance). There are weather in addition to traffic information too.
