there is something about GPS: you can use it without simcard, provided previously downloaded the map.
I am not normally a Nokia fan at all but this seems like a good handset. Ok the battery power is poor but the sound quality is good the camera is spot on, although a bit overkill for a phone I think but then again people may say I claim that cause my handset is 3.2MP. On the whole a well made phone which if you can cope with the power problems then would be a great buy.
I'm a Nokia die hard fan. I don't understand why people complain about the phone when u have issues with the phone why not take it back to where u bought it n get new one. This is the best phone from design to the features and i'm sure if anyone who complains get N95 with no bugs then i'm sure u will say only good things about. For me only the battery is the issue but the good thing electricity is always available. I hope anyone with the problem with this phone will be recitified soon. What i would say is N95 is the best phone available in market and around the globe. If u have money get it if not then someday u will n the price will be down.
it is not possible to use gps without a sim card because nokia maps makes use of the internet. You have to have a 3g or gprs connection for that.
About nokia maps:
I think the licenses are quite expensive and the software is everything but brilliant.
TomTom and Route 66 are still blocked. Rumour hs it that they won't be blocked on newer types (n-series perhaps as well)in the future. This would mean that you wouldnt have to buy licenses, nor need the internet; so you would be able to navigate for free.
No, it will never be possible. Nokia N95 has an OS of Symbian and cannot be reformatted. Like a pc.
i have purchase n95 yesterday.i feel n95 is not a good phone.bettery time is very low.in 24 hours i charge the phone 2times.camera is not good acording to 5mp.bluetooth is not to conect pair device.phone quality is very rough .before 95 i m use n73 its arealy v v v v good phone.bettry timing is good .camera result is exceelent.so i m very disopinted n95.all of users who buy this phone dont buy this phone.
well, i sent back my n95 two weeks ago and it's been 14 business now and i haven't gotten it back! the bluetooth won't pair up. i called them up today and they're sending me a new one... hopefully it won't be defective this time!
question... how much does the navigator costs if you buy it?
I just have a query..can we access internet making N95 as a modem on a Macintosh OS.....please reply me back my email-id.
nokia is into touchscreen at the moment, so i guess, if there is a N96, N97, or watever, we might seen it soon. but N95 takes poor pics at nite juz like N73....so nokia should improve on this.......
What........!!!"For once Nokia have actually produced something that the public will like..." you said For once then you have forgotten 8210, 8310, 7650, and...
Please dont ask again. GPS work all around the world its not depend on your simcard so you can use it in flight mode and its free of charge (except voice navigator). leastwise type in your search engine "WHAT IS GPS" and easily get answer. huh!!!!
Ok Ok...I know i'm always knocking Nokia for being dull and boring....but when they bought out the n95, even i bought one! I can't quite tell if i like it or not...
I mean, it's got the SAT NAV system, and the 5MP camera With Wi-fi, EDGE and the fancy slide look, but is it all actually worth it?
Well...YES! For once Nokia have actually produced something that the public will like...
lets look at the SAT NAV...no need for a Bluetooth GPS as it's already built in, even though it does kill your bat!
The software is quite user freindly, but it still takes getting used to...
The 5MP camera is great fun with it's TV out. It probably has one of the best cameras for a phone in this range, but it's proper slow to load up and to take a pic.
But none of that matters, as the n95 is probably the best phone out on the market today with leading technology!
Well Nokia you suprised me once again! Thats the kind of technology we need to justify you as being one of the biggest selling mobile phone brand in the world!
