art long, 02 Mar 2003Good phone, good GPS... but very disappointed I cannot get maps to use the GPS facility in Aus... moreContact Itellifon. They are Australia's Benefon representitive. OZ Maps are diffinitaly available as they are loaded to my one. State by state even. Mine has Australia, QLD, World. Think it's a purchase software only though? No shortcuts or tricks. Ya want it, ya pay for it? Or buy one from someone in the region you come from. They're not designed to be a toy. They are the best handheld GPS to this day I believe. They do exactly what they were designed to do. Pick up satalites
need help!, 16 Feb 2008i got to a few of this phones and i am wondering if you can tell me how the hell do i turn on ... moreThey have 3 common failures when it comes to GPS. 1st being the flexible connection between the handset & the foldable GPS transmitter/reciever. The 2nd is a MAIN PCB GPS IC failure (rare). Not worth doing unless a certified electronics techinican. 3rd, suggestion is consulting a Benefon service agent for testing? If it ends up being user error or failure, I have no suggestions. Fold out GPS atenna, set GPS power to full, be outdoors for testing, ensure previous users settings are cleared. Simple yeah
I got number of new ESC as i was selling them while back. they are useful if useful still if use them for tracking your car or pet or anything u want to know the location of. The maps for this phone are easily loaded but you have to calibrate any map you want using Mapmaker a software made by Benefon.

i got to a few of this phones and i am wondering if you can tell me how the hell do i turn on gps?everything i try simply doesent work!
There is a updated version of this phone called Benefon Esc! NT2002.
There are other Benefon phones that are not presented on GSM Arena.
GSM Arena dont seem to be updating the pages on this brand.
I dont think this is a very big phone. considering the fact that it has GPS. My Nokia N70 is 108,8x53x21,8 compared to Ecs! 129x49x23.

ya this fon is simply crap, go to singapore and ask them if they sell these kinda phone, they will die of laughter!
You can use maps of anywhere in the world for free, using Spitfire (spitfire.barkop.co.uk). They work amazingly well.
hi i have a esc and other benefon products but i have problems with the software and maps any one knows a better software custom made for tracking....
