Navigation for Nokia N95

Ongoing fun with the Nokia N95 and its beatiful integrated GPS Satellite Navigation ( Sat Nav ). You have to hand it t o the americans for uploading all those satellites.

I go to check it out, but am held back by earlier experiences of data charges whilst driving.

The Nokia N95 is so fully featured that one is sure that it has been created by Nokia’s most generous and benevolent development team who saw it as a chance to stake their claim as maket leaders in mobile telephones. They should revive, what I suspect was a slightly flagging brand-loyal customer base and may have made the iPhone redundant in the UK before it is even released.

Nokia N95 Free Sat Nav Maps

Wow, armed with my new NSeries N95 I was off on a trip last week so I carefully set the mobile on the dashboard and plugged in the destination address. ( I was delivering an ebay sale for a friend- a 100 mile round trip).

What followed was the most dangerous driving of my life as I struggled to zoom and recenter the screen as I drove.
Anyway, it worked and I enjoyed the exercise but was horribly dissapointed to discover that I had spend £7 in data charges – I should read manuals.

Anyway to cut to short I have now loaded maps ( free) from all over Europe onto my phone’s 2gig memory card from smart2go. It is superb, having the maps on your mobile rather than accessing ( and paying ) for each page reload.

You have to enable your phone for disc use rather than Nokia PC Suite for the application to work and the download was nightmarishly slow. But now I can turn on my sat Nav to my hearts content.

I just better not look at it too much.

The Nokia N95 Sat Nav ( satellite Navigation software with integrated GPS) is a wonder
