Just the right person to ask as this morning itself I carried out the trial of ver 3.03 OVI maps. It is fantastic. I drove abot 20 Kms in Chandigarh with voice navigation and was guided very well. Although I had problems listening, probably because I am terribly hard of hearing and was not using the handsfree, but as far as the guidance is concerned, English, Hindi and very many other languages are available as a choice. And the maps are accurate too. The use of GPS is essential and hence does not ask for use of GPS. Just starts using it as a birth right. Just go for it blindly. Your phone has the capability of using it to its full potential.
I request Vinay (as he is one of the experienced person with prompt reply) to check the validity of voice navigation of the Nokia Ovi Map 3.02 for E71 (link mentioned by Opeel). As far as I know Nokia still ot has announced the Ovi Navigation FREE Licence copy for E71.
The Licence of Nokia Ovi Map (Voice navigation in drive mode) that I have installed from Nokia Ovi site (process in my earlier post) is valid for initial 3 months. So please inform whether the map link mentioned by Opeel is life time valid ?

I have answered this problem just three cases below yours and you post the same thing again. Read my answer to Gunjan's write up.
Hey does anyone know if this unit can be uploaded with ovi maps also or just nokia maps. I am from the Philippines and here ovi maps is more accurate.
You must read the facilities given on the page by GSMArena rather than depend on my advice. I would advise you to buy an N95. Would you??? There is a provision of Comparing the phones. Do that and then look at your pocket too. Do what suits you best both from your needs and your pocket points of view.

Thanks for the info on OVI maps.
Incidently, Same can be achieved by opening this GSMArena page in your phone browser and clicking the link provided by Opeel in his comments below on 05-04-2010. And you get OVI maps directly on your phone. Ver3.03. And it seems fantastic as it has voice guidance what google maps is lacking.
In any case you must always have Nokia PCSuite on your PC. It has NSU (Nokia SW Updater) and Maps builtin.
And they both will use your GPS and GPRS to send receive data. Without GPS they will only give approximate location with the help of mobile communication towers while if the GPS is available, then they will give your exact location within 5 meters accuracy.
Today I have successfully updated my E71 Ovi map. The process is as follows:
1. Download and install Map Updater in your PC from Nokia site.
2. Download and install Map Loader also in your PC.
3. Install PC-suite in your PC.
4. Connect E71 to your PC in PC suit mode.
5. Open Map Updater and then automatic update of Ovi Map 3.0 will start (if PC is connected to Internet)
6. After installation of update open Map loader in your PC in PC-suite mode.
7. Load the desired map from the list.
This map is as good as google map. ut it will not use your GPRS connection for getting GPS connection where as google map always ask for GPRS/internet connection to initiate.

Could you please inform us detail about the new Nokia Map for E71 as you mentioned ? Have you downloaded it from Nokia site ? Whether it has Voice assistance ?
free nokia maps on the e71, came first, i have downloaded the sis file installed ove v3.01 and works fine, kept all my fav's and voice. :-)

Its a full fledged kind of phone. I dont think infrared is used much but this phone still has it which even Nokia E72 does not have. But once again, infrared is not used much.
I have it for 8 months now, and like it a lot.
This phone is a super phone. I bought this in a different country. I am in USA. I just came to know to use the 3G I have to have the phone that has the HSDPA frequencies of here while mines are 900/2100.
I still dont want to give this phone up. The second thought is to get another E71 or a new E72. E72 is something more like global.
In case you buy this phone, be sure where you are going to use it more.
