Anonymous, 02 Feb 2011You need an active data connection, its free navigation onli if you have free data traffic on ... moreOvi Maps only use the internet connection for POI and other "live" update notifications such as traffic. If you disallow (not disable) online connections, GPS navigation will still function because maps are loaded into the device rather than downloaded on th go. This is much much better than Google Maps.
Does anybody here have the same problem with N8 display as this guys:
[deleted post]What would be even better is if the flash could also be used as a high powered laser. That way, if you see someone breaking into your car, you can take a video of him trying to break in as you zap him while defending your property. :)
Using this phone for 3 days and all i can say im very dissapointed:\ when writing sms allways wrong letters pressed; screen dont respond when touched very often, it freezes sometimes; problems to load gps maps... moreover its so heavy and bulky- a real brick:} though the camera and games are good, i regret buying this phone so much... worthless
New Firmware PR 1.1 finally available for Nokia C7 (N8, C6-01 coming shortly)

Well it looks like finally, FINALLY Nokia has managed to give us the first of hopefully many more software updates for their new Symbian devices. Unfortunately for camera lovers out there, the N8 doesn’t seem to have this update yet. (I checked). The description of the update is ” Improves phone performance and brings you the latest features” *shrug*. I doubt it’s that significant an improvement but it’s an improvement nonetheless. Lets hope at the very least that it clocks the CPU back up to it’s initial value (~800Mhz) with no discernible loss of battery.
Those of you with C7′s get to updating, the rest of us’ll just sit and wait.
nokia does'nt make perfect phone someone where there r some lacking in this handset

Rumour control is the problem and Nokia know about all the rumours. So why don't they squash them with facts and tell us when?????

Anonymous, 02 Feb 2011it takes forever to get a gps lock in offline, in real life scenario its as good as useless. H... moreI have just returned from a trip to the USA. I used my N8 to do a 700 mile roadtrip from New York City to Cape Cod to Boston to Albany and back to New York. It worked beautifully even in Manhattan and other areas where the sky was occluded by structures such as overpasses. Lock on from cold start in offline mode took one to two minutes (much faster than the N97). Offline searches for accommodation and gas worked very well. I also had a Magellan standalone gps unit. I never even switched it on.
From time to time my wife would use the N8 to do video of the surrounding snow covered countryside (I live on a tropical island) while we were driving. Switching between gps and camera worked flawlessly with no loss in tracking.
