The icing on this enhancements cake is the Nokia 500 Auto Navigation car kit solution. This is Nokia's first handsfree dedicated personal navigation device for in-car navigation and communication.

The car kit comes with pre-installed regional maps, and travel information, including points of interest such as hotels, petrol stations and tourist sites.

The screen displays guidance information such as details on your next turn, estimated time of arrival and distance remaining. It also offers an included music and video player plus a picture browser. Thanks to the built-in FM transmitter the device can even stream audio to your in-dash FM radio.
