Anonymous, 07 Jun 2008map updates are free of the nokia sitedude, you barely know anything about this phone yourself. Nokia maps has free updates, this has route 66. you have to buy the maps for this software. the turn by turn navigation is free though.
ian, 30 May 2008i have the 6110... its not free6110 is free goto navi settings and change to never use network
Jessy, 03 Jun 2008GPS is only free for about a month then you have to purchase it.you can stop the charges from using the gps by turning off a setting in the navigation options, it's in extras and you turn off the bit that lets the navigator use your network. runs a little bit slower but should stop all extra charges
Nothing is for free. Turn by Turn Navigation is free on the 6110 as it will be on the 6210. Map are updates are not free however, the mapping is done by Route 66. Nothing is for free guys, EVERY GPS unit has some sort of charge incurred for ongoing use. Wether that be charging for turn by turn navigation or charging for map updates. You think these companies put thousands of hours into mapping software for nothing?

haha, chargin forGPS!!! all you nokia users will soon see that SE/Samsung have the better phones, and EASIER TO USE, apart form the symbian Samsungs!!.
Nokia bought the GPS company, so they mus be loosing a mint, so like everything else, they will start to over-charging Nokia users, and as blind as they are, nokia users will just pu up with it.
WAKE UP and smell the **** nokia spin!! They were good, now they have been over taken.
Same phones, boring design, and their sliders are the WORST in the market. No room for the 123 buttons, too close tothe slide, and their slides always break. That what I see coming through my phone store anyway
Nokia has totally lost the plot with the 6210. Why have they decided to start charging for GPS usage as it was free on the 6110? Also a dedicated sat-nav box is free to use so why on earth charge users to use the GPS?? I was going to get the 6210 when it came out. Not anymore! Now they have forced me to look elsewhere now. Not a very wise move by Nokia!
Great to have license for 3yrs. But come to think of it, i dont think the phone can last that long.
I just had a talk with one of the nokia guys
the is a licens for 3 years full downloading of maps to it :)
Here is the link. It says 6 month licence.
KJ & Jimbob have different opinion / interpretation on the free GPS. So who has the confirm news & possible to provide source of news.
The Nokia Europe site says that it comes with 6 month navigation licence. In that case, unlike the 6110 which is completely free, what's the point in buying this phone if you then have to pay for navigation after 6 months? Might as well buy another Symbian phone with better features and buy navigation if you really need it.
Why wi fi is not included in the features I don't know. I feel that nokia has released all models with one or other shortcomings so that no one is satisfied with one phone model
