I have an n5140 and i think it is a great phone,but the display it's lowwwwwww!
It is a cstn display with 4k,and the cover display protection has a blue glas,not white so it makes it even lower.And the camera it's great,but not on that display!In the dark you can't see a thing.If you want to buy this fone for the making pictures please reconseder.About every thing else it's great!
Siemens is in danger of shutting down its mobile phone division. Apparently a lot of other people don't agree that Siemens phones are the best.
The Travel Guide, like all java applications on Nokia phones, cannot use the WAP settings to connect to the server.
The user must set the GPRS settings under the settings menu and under the services menu.
The settings are operator specific but the "internet" access point usually works internationally.
I tried TravelGuide in Florida and after setting up the internet acces point and using that instead of wap settings it was able to connect to the server.
Unfortunately these are operator specific but I was able to get connection by using default settings except internet as connection point.
Hopefully this helps.
pls tell me what's his memory?? could you set your video recording time or it's set by them only at 10 sec.? i mean how long could you record? do you know his price in Dubai? thanks very much ;)
Reading its options i thought it's the best mobile, and i really wanted to buy it even though i don't like Nokia generally, but i found out that it has been withdrawn from the market-Jordan- due to some software troubles, that also happened with the previous 5100... i had the older 5210 , it was very good, but then i think Nokia started going bad... concerning the 5th. series at least.... i hate Nokia... Siemens are the best... i have been using ME45 for 2years, it's just great
No, definitely WGS84 only according to Nokia website. They aren't going to produce special versions for localised markets.
Another thing regarding the US 5140 and US CC-70D: both units I received from nokiausa were the Hungarian built ones and not the Finnish ones. So it is possible that the UK CC-70D is Finnish made and may operate in WGS84 and/or Ordnance Survey Great Britain, but, I do not know.
Tried to make a call while GPS was engaged in the "Satellites" mode and I could not make a phone call, did not try it in any other GPS modes, as we both thought it would not make calls and it was too cold outside to run through them all.
The US CC-70D is only WGS84, have no idea regarding UK, but, would assume that they are the same and only WGS84.
No the phone does not have to be switched off to use the GPS. You only have to toggle through the menu to engage GPS function. First time start of GPS or when the unit (GPS) has not been active for 14+ days, Nokia states it may take up to 4 min. to link w/ the satellites. Cold start (over two hours since last using GPS) up to 2 min. and less than 2 hrs. approx. up to 15 sec. Though, I have found with cold starts, usual link is made within 15 sec.
Accuracy is greatly affected by the # of satellites the unit links up with and the signal strength from the link to each. Obviously, the more satellites the unit links with and the better the strength of the signal, the better the geometry and thus a rather accurate reading of the units location.
So doesn't the phone have to be switched off before the GPS function can be used? Can it remain in standby?
It only does WGS84 latitude and longitude position format. That may be fine in many countries, but not for UK where Ordnance Survey Great Britain is used. This severely limits the appeal of this shell in the UK. Just want to make it clear so no-one wastes their cash thinking it will help them when using maps.
Would have no idea about operation in the UK, i.e. GB data, as I am in N. America.
On and operating are seperate issues. Have not tried to use the GPS and make a phone call at the same time, so I too do not know, but, would assume that it does not because the GPS' antenna is at the mouth piece and on the side where a right handed person would hold while talking, if not using the loudspeaker function.
I do not consider the unit to be the best GPS machine, but, as an add-on feature for the phone, I think it is cool to have. Just wish, Nokia would get the travel guide app. to function in my territory.
The poster wanted to know if it did GB data, ie OSGB. It doesn't. I haven't owned one and wouldn't - it's crap. And I think I am right when I say you can only operate the GPS shell OR the phone, not both at the same time.
What do you mean when you say, "..., you can't even have your phone on at the same time:" The GPS unit uses the phones battery, thus, the phone must be on to opperate the unit.
Do you have the CC-70D? Did you have it at some point?
Mapping for the UK is contained in the Europe region, of thr travel guide application (1 yr./region is bundled w/ unit). If you live in the EU, you should not have any problems with the phone/GPS units travel guide and you can order items from the www.softwaremarket.nokia.com site
Bet you'd find an eTrex yellow for that - _much_ better than this shell. And S/H or on eBay you surely would, perhaps one with mapping too.
This is a very limited device. I mean, you can't even have your phone on at the same time: what good is that!?
No it doesn't show UK data. It's nothing but a waste of money. Buy a real GPSr instead.
Ref the GPS cover, does it show GB Ordnance Survey Grid refs or similar???
Received the GPS unit today. It does add some thinkness to the lower back portion of the shell and a little less than an ounce to the weight, other than that there are just minor differences with the shell that comes with the phone. The rubber is lessened on the the sides to allow better conduction for the GPS antenna, smaller rubber coverage on the bottom of the phone, and the keypad uses orange instead of white for the numbers. The unit can only act as a stand alone GPS at this time, the travel guide function is not operable at this time and nokiausa.com or Nokia Tech Support knew when it would be up and running. That was a main reason for the purchass of the shell so there is some disappointment that they released the unit without that feature working. Also, the site they list in the US User Guide to order additional regions (www.softwaremarket.nokis.com) does not sell to the US market. The GPS antenna also does not seem to work in the car, which could be a major hindrance when the travel guide kinks are worked through. Though it was rather overcast where I was today, so that may have affected reception in car. Outside the unit typically received between 4 and 7 sattelite links, though this would change rather rapidly and go under the 4 link threshold for marking a waypoint. As far as accuracy, stayed pretty true to the 30m statement by Nokia. Final judgement on the unit will have to be made after the travel guide feature is working though.
If you are thinking of buying the unit for the travel guide feature, I suggest waiting until that is operable.
