Vodacom told me that the GPS function in South Africa is free of charge. I have yet to establish if you have to pay for updated maps though.
Mine ordered today (31 March 2008) on the basis of these comments.
It is a wonderful mobile that i have ever seen.good steeerio effect, music is wonderful, vidio and picture clearity is outstanding
Looking at the SE C702 it says it has built in gps reciver does that mean it will be like this phone? Where you will be able to get free gps or is it diffrent?
I just got these phone for only two days, it's a great I can say from Nokia... The GPS connection only need 10-40 seconds, if bad weather it will only take 1-2 minutes but it's still better than Nokia N95 that I have to wait for 5-10 minutes for the GPS connection. But ONE things to remind all the users of 6110 Navigator, that is the alluminium-like camera cover that bear the 2 Megapixel wording is very fragile... I just bump into something that is not so hard and it sunken a little bit... Please becareful
i really believe this is a great phone, very easy to use but there are a few negative points such as the battery life when you have the gps and bluetooth switched on (problems that can be fixed with a good car charger. The loudspeaker is great as well but the biggest dissapointment is that my phone finds it difficult to get satelite reception even when im outdoors or driving, it has taken from one or 2 mins up to 15 mins. is there any way i can make the satelite reception recive quicker?
I'm currently working for Optus, so I'm 100% sure it's free.
If you don't switch off A-GPS function, then GPS navigation will go through your service provider if there is no GPS signal, then you will get charged for data.
Yes, this free to use the GPS, however you have to switch off the AGPS 1st.
I have had my phone for 3 days now! GOT TO SAY I LOVE IT TO BITS! Its a nicew looking phone and works wonderfully and its fast!

I got my phone Wednesday the 26th at 4:30pm and I am so far ecstatic with it. My GPS is fast, only lags if I am in a building and if I step out it is instant. Superb phone. VERY Happy. (^_^)
Just to clear this with everyone who would like to know more about this amazing phone. I got myself this phone and it is honestly an amazing phone and yes the GPS System is absolutely free and does not expire after a certain time length. The sound is beyond any persons expectation concerning "phone" ofcourse... so if you love noise then this is for you. the camera quality,dispite the fact that its a 2mp camera is quite good. I feel I made a good choose getting this phone. anymore questions....you may ask away.
Just a quick question.
I see many people are saying the GPS is free on this phone.
Is it free on the optus network?
I just think it might be free on some networks and some will charge you.
Because these days its hard to belive that anything is free.
Awaiting your reply.
My 6111 have problem with the display which turned blue after using for 8 month. the service centre replaced the LCD module.
6110 navigator for me is close to perfect, sound is even better than other models having music edition feature.That is why I wonder how its audio became one of its disadvantages.
