Well, the phone is a Nokea 6600 with firmware 4.23 I believe is the firmware.  The exploration mode is not working with MobileSpeak version 2.00, which is the latest release nor with the just released Talks 3.05.  

I am using a Royal Tech receiver.  I can't remember the model number, but it is the receiver that is shipping with Trekker.

Subject: [Loadstone] Exploration mode commands do not speak

: Hello all,
: We have recently been made aware that on certain phones for some unclear 
: reason Exploration mode commands are not functioning as expected.
: As an example, if you enter Exploration mode and attempt to move the 
: Exploration mode focus to the next point to the East (by pressing 6) 
: ,Loadstone should print the resulting point on the screen and in turn will 
: speak the resulting point via your phone's screen reader.
: What seams to be happening with some people is the resulting point is 
: being displayed on the screen but the screen  reader is not speaking the 
: result.
: At this point we are slightly baffled as to why this is happening.  We 
: will however track this problem down with your help.
: We need to hear from as many people as possible whether it is working for 
: you or not.  If people could please post a message to the list including 
: their experience that would be very much appreciated and will assist us in 
: rectifying the problem.
: If you could please let us know the following:
: 1.  Are you able to receive feedback from your screen reader while moving 
: around in Exploration mode (using keys 1 through 9)
: 2.  What screen reader and version are you using?
: 3.  What make and model of phone are you using?  (The firmware version 
: would be useful to know as well)  To find out your Nokia phone's firmware 
: version, type: star number sign zero zero zero zero and number sign. 
: (Number sign = hash)
: 4.  Are you using Loadstone in conjunction with a GPS receiver?  If so, 
: what make and model are you using?
: Again, even if this is working fine for you if you could let us know that 
: would be very useful!  That way we can rule in or out potential causes!
: We will try and fix this as soon as possible as we can imagine it must be 
: quite annoying though it works fine on each of the Developer's phones - 
: granted none of which are running the latest screen readers or are new 
: themselves!
: Thanks,
:   Monty
