I have a nokia 6110 and changed it to offline. I am now struggling to work out how to change it to online. Can anyone help please?
I will be getting a nokia 6110 navigator on a contract in about 4 days. My question is : Was this a good or a bad choice? Other options were: Nonia N73, Nokia 6500 slide, Nokia 6500 classic, Sony Erricson, and Samsung D900i.
I have never had such a phone before, and wonder if i will be happy with it, because this is a 24month contract.
I have read the reviews, and found quite a few complaints about the phone's gps and speakers. Will i be bored with the phone after 2 or 3 months, or will i enjoy it for the next 2 years???
i'm still quite happy with my navi, which iv had 2months. be greatful for the loud sound, not many phones are capable of that. i just wish i got the white one, its stunning!!!! theres even a shimmer pink at our store.
Please help, have only had Nokia Navigator for 3 weeks and overnight the speakers seem to have been activated. My ring tone and message alert are now unbearably loud. How do I switch it off??
Please let me know whether this phone has the capability to play the .rm files as the Sony Ericsson phones have???
Please mail me all your reviews,
I would like to know how do I get the latest 2008 maps of South Africa.
i'm having trouble using my phone as a modem on my pc. when i try to connect to the internet via the pc suite it always says that no modem was found. Help
The battery life is just fine. I won’t say ‘good’. If you talk a lot then it will cause you a little bit trouble sometimes and if you use gps then the charge will stay for 2 hours max. However this handset is really great except the battery life. I really enjoy using it. Using internet in this handset is a pleasure. I send all my mails from my cell phone and sometimes I download mp3. It’s great. If you want to buy it then just go for it...
can anyone tell me if there is a significant diff between the pre-installed 2006Q4 SA maps and the 2007Q2 SA maps? don't want to have to pay if there isn't much diff. also, i find that if i put in an address the nav is a few metres off. besides that love the nav.
will be updating on the firmware, hope all goes well. wat's up with the beta2 maps? is it a trial, free, or are they lab testing on us?
yeah, also found that it takes me in directions i don't want to go. isn't there a way to put up blocks? i see you can put up road blocks but only when you enter a trip.
Not too be random but WOW there are a lot of SA peeps here :-) ive already got a NOKIA N81 but was just wondering how is the battery life of the 6110-Nav?
LOL @ Wessie,sorry to hear that.
not to bad but I have some trouble with the sound on the phone. I've sent it in for repairs, but onle two weeks later and the problem is back. Navigation is ok but I've found some new area's to be missing from the map in JHB. I've also find it tends to take me through some dangerous area's that I don't think is nice for woman. Who want's to drive through Hillbrow Yeoville at night or day for it is worth. I know it's the shortest way to my house in Houghton, but still. You'd think that the phone is in your hand and the next moment it's gone stolen by a smash and grabber! I like the interface and would sell the phone to friends to also get one.
i live in JHB and found the nav to be great, haven't had problems. i even used the nav to find directions to a street address in fourways blv from my home near auckland park without having to move. only deal is the string address and when i was looking for roos and fourways i had to type in roos only, but found it quick enough in the results. i took the phone for the gps cause i don't like getting lost.
if people buy the nav for the gps they have to use it, even when they know where they are going, you don't have to put in an address, just switch it on and see how it tracks you. no point in having a gps if you don't experiment with it, but make sure you have a car charger.
hope this helps.
hi, i moved to jhb and have found the navigator to be really usefull, i would of been lost on so many occasions if it was not for my 6110.
I'll be moving to JHB SA in a month and i really need some opinions on the navi's maps in JHB are they excelent, good, bad I need to know ....pretty please ?????
Hi everyone. I hope I can shed some light on this phone for people contemplating a purchase.
I must say I love Nokia phones, their Symbian S60 series phones are very nice. I previously owned a Nokia N70 before this phone, and a Nokia 6600 before that, and before that was a Nokia N-Gage. All of these phones were Symbian phones. The S60 3rd edition is a lot more stabler, and very quick compared to the likes of even the N70 (S60 version 2.0) which got very sluggish after taking so many photos and videos. The 6110 Navi is just okay for taking pics and videos, as its not an N-Series the display on the screen is a lot brighter, but when you actually view the picture on a pc or big screen, there is a lot of noise and static, as the lens isn't as good and tries to cope without as much light.
All in all, I'd say its a decent phone, having used a Tom Tom GPS prior to buying this phone, the GPS function does have its limits, sometimes its a bit fiddly to try to get to another destination in between your current position and your final destination. You basically have to set a 'TRIP' instead of normally navigating to an address or saved landmark. Another gripe with the phone is that the actual call quality I get on my Navi is quite muffled compared to my N70. Couple that with the not-so-solid construction and you get a bit of a squeaking case when you're pushing the keypad buttons or even just holding it next to your ear during a normal phone call. This is really annoying for the person you're talking to, as the squeaking gets amplified because the microphone is inside the casing, and the buttons are a bit clickety, compared to the softer push action of the N70. Imagine the person you're talking to is on a 6110, and they want to punch something into the calendar while talking to you.. They start pushing the keypad buttons as they're entering text, and it sounds like they are wacking a table with a ruler. REEAAALLY ANNOYING. When I first got the phone, it frequently resetted on me while using the GPS, but I upgraded the firmware and everything was fine after that. Another gripe, more to do with Symbian than the phone itself, is that you can't perfectly transfer all your SMS and MMS texts and messages from an S60 V2 phone to a V3 phone. I have tried this, and it appears to work, but then the phone freezes after you've turned it off or reset. I had a heap of SMS messages saved from my N-Gage, 6600 and N70 and wasnt able to port them over to this.
Also, with new S60 V3 applications, they must have a signed certificate or something. Most of the time when installing a new application, you may get an expired certificate error. In some cases this is easily negotiated by changing the date of your phone, installing the application and then changing the date back. Some applications however just won't work, as they require deeper functions that the phone needs a proper Symbian signed certificate for. I'm no expert on this, but used to use the excellent program FExplorer on my N70, but haven't been able to get the new FExplorer 3rd edition to work on my Navi.
Its a nice looking phone, decent size screen, light sensor so the keypad glows when there isn't much light, and its my first slide phone. The slide can shoot up accidentally when slipping it into a pocket now and then, but this isn't a major thing. The position of the Navigator key on the front just under the directional pad though, is a bit too close to the pad, maybe I have fat fingers, but sometimes you're racing around the menu and bang, you accidentally hit the Navi key and she starts to go into the GPS mode. This takes about 5 seconds to exit, as the splash screen appears and then goes to the map allowing you to exit after that.
For all the perverts and voyeurs out there, NO you can't turn off the shutter sound when taking photos, something which I used to love about my N70 and previous phones - No i haven't stalked anyone.... recently.
Battery life as far as I can tell is pretty good, although I have a nice little car cradle which is just for the 6110, and allows you to slide her up and still hold her in place at the same time, allowing you to punch in numbers, etc and I have a cigarette car charger that I hook up to it when in the car. The charging port is on the top of the phone, a little strange seeing as I'm used to the charge port on the bottom.
The display of the phone is very clear, and has much better resolution than the N70, although as I was saying about the actual pictures before, they look a bit grainy compared to an N series.
If you're looking for a decent phone and a GPS in one, this is an OK choice. (I hate carrying around an array of gadgets) I am hopeless with directions, so I really needed a GPS, and I still have to part ways with my N70 which I am still keeping for now in hope that I can transfer my message across before I sell her off. Good size phone, lots of functions as usual for the S60 phones, nice and quick, GPS works well if you can get used to it and overall probably around an 8 out of 10. My dream phone is probably an N95 8GB or a Nokia N93 or N93i, as I dream about the thought of having 3X optical zoom on the 93's and VGA quality video. If I can be of help to anyone just email me. Cheers kev
i have just orded dis fone, and after reading all the good and bad of it i decided i continue with my upgrade and take a chance, but hope to ge advice from the people that have one, god bless who hav one
sorry to hear about the phone giving u so much trouble but with all phones you will get a few duds. I worry about upgrading software so has any1 had success with that? Also for the string address in nav leave out the words street and road. Just put in the street name, number and area. If i already said this sorry but my last comment didn't upload.
You need to turn the Assisted GPS (AGPS) off for the browsing to be free - it does come preloaded with all of the maps. AGPS generally helps you lock onto a satellite faster as it downloads more information about your location, hence the download charge.
If you just want to use the preloaded maps, then turn it off, be patient and wait for the map to load (can take a couple of minutes sometimes).
