I am serious about the Nokia 6110Nav.
I live in South Africa. is the maps freely available.
Secondly, is the GPS GPRS data dependant or is it like a Garmin that can act standalone.
Let me know...
Okay. So I work in a phone outlet in Australia. First of all, someone asked how this phone compares to the N95. One. The N95's maps cost to use. I keep having ppl that are told they don't. They do. Trust me. Two. The N95 has a LOT of features. Which is great BUT because of this the battery life is not terribly good. Three, the N95 has software problems. This is not as big of a problem as it sounds though, a simple software upgrade will fix this 99.9% of the time. Basically you need to weigh up what features you need more. I opted for the nav but my partner has the N95. If you need gps but are tight like me then the nav is the way to go. If you need the WLAN and the better camera then obviously the N95.
Someone else asked about the 6500 slide. NOO!!!!!! DO NOT DO IT! Don't get me wrong these are fantastic phones... When they work!! (which isnt often) Major software errors and they will show up within the first week. If you're tossing up between that and this, look no further!!
Finally, I get around 3-4 days out of the battery on this one. I use it constantly and it is never turned off. My mum has the same phone and she probably gets at least a week out of it. If you use the gps lots, it will chew it. Fast. First day I got it I used gps all day and it died by that afternoon.
This is one of the 2 most reliable phones we sell and boy do they walk off the shelf:)
Can any tell me how the 6110 compares to the N95?
I am esp interested in the Built-in GPS receiver
I live in South Africa too, and i'd love to know if the SA maps are available. Please could someone inform me

Hi I have had my phone for two weeks plus a bit now and am loving it. The pictures are great the video can take up to 1 hour of clip not 10 or more seconds like most cameras. The GPS is great but I want to know if anyone in South Africa has been able to update their maps yet and if so how much did it cost?
If you are having long connection times for your N95 gps, you need to update the software. Mine now finds the satellite faster than my Garmin!
I live in South Africa and the default map on my GPS is a World one, How do I change it to the S.A one?
It sounds like this phone is great and all but isn't the battery too weak? I use MXiT which uses quite a lot of battery power... I need a strong battery. How long does it last without GPS on? And I'm worried about da camera... Is it clear or not (especially with video)?
Hi I wanna buy either this phone or the 6500 slide... can anyone tell me which is better? I know this has GPS, but it has worse camera features... I need help quick plz. Wanna order 2moro! also, can u take photos with the secondary (front) camera? u apparently can't with the 6500 slide... Plz advise me ASAP thanx
JUst got my 6110 from aussie its gud but if you want the latest maps you have to pay!DUMB! other than that allgoods got smartmovie and i just watch movies on it.If anyone know of free australia maps like keygen or something??PLEASE any way for people who want free software go to DOTSIS.COM
this is an excellent phone, i have had nothing than pleasure working with it... it is beautiful... :)
Hi, i don't think its door to door but it is pretty close (About a 10 meter radius)
I don't now if you can view live TV on it yet so if anyone knows please let us all know.
I tried using the video camera in the dark last night but i could not activate the light. The N70 light switches on automatically when you begin to record. Does anyone now how i can activate this function? The flash on the normal camera is very bright and works well.

most of the Peoples are like 6100 navigator and me as well and if you have a long distens that you dont it help you abuot the navigator to find the way
Hi, i think that the 6110 nav is great. I have always been a Nokia guy but this 6110 nav takes the cake. Its navigation is fast and easy to use. The directions are very accurate and when travelling it shows me the exact right information like car speed and when i stop at a stop street.
This is not the only good thing. Its sexy compact and easy to operate, which is one of Nokia's trademarks. The sound is good and the guys voice on the msg reader is also very clear. It has good office functions and excellent graphics. The camera takes clear pictures and maintains the clarity when zooming in or out. It does however short a stabilizer in the camera function.
However the cover of the 6110 nav is plastic and unlike the Nokia N70 with the metal face case, the one on the 6110 nav is plastic which feels a little cheap and i don't foresee it having much of a life span. I hope in this regard Nokia have gone ahead and produced a stronger more durable cover for the 6110 as its the kind of phone you don't want to put down. The front camera latch is also a slurp, as its not just a flick and its open like most other phones. You have to apply subsequent pressure to open it which could result in you missing one of those memorable moments.
Apart from the small things i have mentioned, its my opinion that all round, the Nokia 6110 nav is a good phone and i would recommend it to anyone. Well done Nokia.

nokialoverbtimer, you'll just have to decide which one is more useful for you - n80's wifi or navigator's gps. but one thing's sure, navigator's faster than n80. it's as fast as 6120 classic and 5700 music express beause they have the same processor, i think. these 3 are much faster than our daughter's n73. another plus for the navigator is that though a bit heavy, it really feels sturdy and built-to-last. i've got the white one. am not sure if n80's build is similar.
