I just downloaded maps for UK. The software didn't say whether it was loading it to my phone or to my hardrive. There's no browse to see & or select !
I then go to maps to try & run the sat nav but instead of running the GPS software it just tries to connnect to my WLAN !
All the owners manual talks about is maps in relation to sat nav.
So I go to maps on my phone & let it connect to my WLAN. Then I put in a location for it to calc the route. I go to look at route & it says 'no GPS position' so I go outside to get a GPS signal & it then says 'disconnected', presumably disconnected from my WLAN !
So how the heck can you get this to work ?
Then I look in 'applications' to see if the GPS/sat nav software application is there to select to try & run, but it's not there !!!!!!!!
WTF do Nokia make things so hard ?
They've made GPS a big selling point of the N956 but it seems they don't care of anyone can actually get it to run !
Any suggestions appreciated.
Can somebody manage to do skype calls on this phone( as E65 can do)? Please explain
The symbian aspect is essential. From multitasking to powerful file management within root directories to program installation and execution, symbian enables all of this. If you ever used a phone as a real tool (you know, for work?), you would understand how important it is.
When using WIFI or internet. HOw do type?..is there a letter recognition in the touch screen ??
I'm just wondering about the GPS, has anyone has experience about that? How to plan a route? how GPS work? When the phone outside it must picks up Satellite signal right? Thanks for any help. MInh
Can someone tell me if there is a way to make the phone end a call if I slide the phone down at the end of a call?
PS if you do update dont upgrade your maps app, the new one dosent do gps tracking and it's not on this firmware update as i think it's unofficial. please updat your map loader as this will install maps very quickly. the official firmware update will be the bomb, SE & iphone pfft this update puts the jewell back in the crown
I changed my code to euro1 using nss and upgraded firmware with nokia nsu and my n95 is like lightning and and and gps connects in 1 second on route 66 & nokia maps. I have a 4gb sandisk sdhc and i installed all my apps to card because it seems to mash up the phone if you store apps to phone. It's AMAZING, Im so happy LOL
If this new firmware can correct a few things that people are wanting and battery goes up a touch then this fone is perfect.Have had it good few weeks now and everything has worked spot on and using a 4 x aaa battery charger for support thruout the day..I think video is perfect for wat i need and wat i do is pop in a blank micro sd card (1gb )to take shots and video and on the 4gb have mp3s,,videos etc,,you definetly need the seperate card if your using full power video as mine on average sucks up 25mb per min of video recording which is normal and playback thru tele is unmatched to wat anything ive used before i.e. my d900 had cif at 15fps and that fiiled a normal def tele full screen but this (n95) improves vastly on that with smoother action and less graininess,,,i am using the 3 mp setting on cam thats good for wat i want and get enuf sound out the mp3 player with the dance music i listen too...im using mini opera now because nokias own mini-map browser is slow and that arrow curser sometimes does not point at links properly leaving you to go round and round till you pick up the link..The screen is really big wen you first get it but after a while wen i went back to my n80 you really,really appreciate the n95 screen size..Obviously their is loads more to explore and do but overall after having most smartfones this is the best in terms of stability & opertion..I cant get used to windows smarfones and each one ive had cant play many video formats and those it does stall after 30 seconds and refuse to play this n95 plays lots and you can also get divx down load to get more and if youre in 3g coverage if you go to video centre on n95 and d/load you tube vids it plays them,,and its blogs everything and timelines it,,and its got direct links to my space the list goes on so n95 is superb device,,try it,,you can always swap it under 14 refund/exchange policy at most reputable stores ,,bye.
i've crossed over from the titan.I must say the n95 is easier to use but has different qualities.If you need to use buisness applications then this phone is very limited.Basic functions such as copy and paste are a nightmare.
CHECK the new Black 8GB N95, i was waiting for that! WOW!
new firmware available version 12! (from allaboutsymbian.com) Although it doesnt show up in my NSU. version includes the highly anticipated Assisted GPS that will speed up lock-on time.
Hey, I really like this phone and am seriously contemplating buying one, its got loads of features crammed in it, but the BIG downside is the the poor battery consumption (which is a big thing)! The main reason I want this phone is because it's got a 5mp camera, but what I would like to know is ... is the camera good? I could just about deal with the bad battery (as after the 1st week of constant exploring this phone, it wouldn't get heavily used) so long as it gave me great pictures, I would be very satisfied with this phone! I suppose I could go for the Sony Erickson K850 (when it released), but when I get something I want to show off its numerous features (which the Nokia has by the bag load)!
This brings me onto the 'Black N95', does this phone have a better battery? Also what would definitely make me buy this phone is if the GPS navigation gave me verbal instructions, does the 'black' version have this feature for free?
Don't like it,,,don't buy it....this is the point..
I like it I buy it...the battery took 4 days before the charging time
its a great phone. I'm now using it for a week or more. battery depends on the usage. i can drain it in half a day or I can keep it for more than 2 days. I download map of my city but it doesn't have any detail. how can I add a better map to my N95 ?
it's a sexy phone but it's not having good battery & not a very good in build handfree .apart from that if u making a mobile as a computer then u also look for a good os with a good processer which can bear the load. i m a perso who is dealing wiht mobiles but i must say it hav wlan,3g,3.5mm
output jack,inbuild gps navigation .but that's all
