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
