Some of the devices where you can avail these service for free include Nokia N97 Mini, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition, Nokia E52, Nokia E55, Nokia E72, Nokia 5230, Nokia 6710 Navigator, Nokia 6730 classic and Nokia X6.

The catch is that a Nokia navigation system will only work where there is a signal, unlike traditional devises where the information is stored offline. For instance, you can plan the route on your car navigation system that will work even in areas where there is no signal because the entire information is stored locally.

Good news to all Nokia users who has GPS enabled phones, Nokia OVI has announced the free access to GPS navigation worldwide.

Just update maps on your Nokia phones and you''l be granted free access to GPS navigation from now on. I just updated mine and the map has been updated drastically and even works much better then ever. It's really awesome!

Create an account on OVI.com and you can even plan your route and set fav. destination online and later synchronize it with your phone. which makes easier life to users who finds very confused and complicated over phone. You can even share the route with your friends anywhere in the world.

Isn't it grrr8. So start navigating..and have fun, but drive safe!!!

The cheapest navigation phone is Nokia 2710 Navigation Edition.
It costs 8000 Bucks.
Superb VFM? Yes or No

I recently purchased a Nokia X6, AMG too knows about it.
It's damn brilliant, and the GPS(not A-GPS) works excellently.
I just had to go online once, for activation an now all the pre-loaded locations, including small restaurants, temples among others are displayed without having to go online, and free of cost!
