In the process of evaluating alternative GPS systems for Nokia 6600 it would appear that the Nokia VOLUME level issue, as reported in Mike's review, demonstrates hardware limitations likely to inhibit the acceptance of Wayfinder as well as Route 66 Mobile Britain 2005 and the proposed TomTom.
As it is not possible to use 2 BT connections on the 6600 I have been experimenting with a WIRED handsfree device, ( MrHandsfree) which incorporates a speaker and power supply.

I recorded a voice message and then played it back.
The result on the phone alone demonstrates the inadequate volume for listening at higher speeds.
BUT when connected via the handsfree system the message came through LOUD and CLEAR.

I feel sure that this would also happen with the Wayfinder voice instructions and I have asked Wayfinder to confirm!!!

It would appear that this could offer a significant enhancement to the viability of these phone systems!!!!!

My MD was also pleased with the wired handsfree connection for the 6600 that he just recently put in. I think his is the 'genuine' Nokia car-kit.

I use a Nokia Plug In HF Carkit >> http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,,33299,00.html bought it from ebay for 10 and it works like a treat. It just plugs into the 12v port in your car and powers your phone at the same time.

Definately worth a try :D
