You can download maps to your phone through wifi (free), GPRS (pay data usage), to mem card (free and fastest), or to phone (free and v.slow for some reason) - directly from nokia with their software. They have it for over 100 countries. If you dn't have it downloaded on mem card then u can enable it to use wifi and download the maps as needed (you can disable that).
I have it for about 2+ weeks. I love it. GPS works perfect for me. Takes 2min, other time 10min to get a lock but then it works perfect. Screen is one of the sharpest I have seen. Camera in low lightning is ok, outside its extremely good. Battery life is avg Nokia (decently good) if u use it as a phone. If you use GPS and camera etc, then u have to charge it daily. I am a semi-heavy phone user. Never hung, really slow down for me. When you switch from one slide to the other side, then it takes 4 seconds to catch up. There are little things that could be improved but overall i find it extremely useful and practical. Size is v.nice as well, don't find it big (nor has anyone else i showed off to has find it big yet). Wifi is good speed as well.
arghhh....bought my N95 2 wks ago. but im not happy with it. Regret of buying this phone. It is totally different with what NOKIA advertized. there too many problems with the phone:
1. battery life is damn short
2. 5mp camera is not that good, picture & video quality just normal. My previous Sharp 903SH 3.2mp is 1000 times better
3. menu speed is too slow, sometime I thougt it was "hanging", but it not, actually it is running but DAMN SLOW, expecialy when you want to open "items & videos".
4. internal GPS does not work well. Always say GPS signal are unavailable even im under a clear sky view, and might take up to 15mins to get the GPS connected.
ARGHHH....With all of these issues, I dont think it's worth it to buy this phone. Damn it, I wanna sell this phone away.
Can someone please let me know if they have an OS Lag. Ive heard loading up funcitons or navigatign though the phone is very slow. Is this true? Thinking of buying this phone. Is it worth it? or somehting just as good on the market to look out for?
1. I would like to know if the GPS Mapping system use the Internet Connection ? Shouldn`t have an integrated GPS receiver ?
2. How did you download the GPS Map application to your N73 ?
my GPS is not working plz help i start the map program and it shows a satellite dish with a cross on it, i go to the view-satellite info and it shows there is a signal when i press the GPS Pos it point somewhere in eourpe even that i'm in the middle east help plz
I am from Manila Philipines, I would like to ask any kind hearted out there to help me in downloading the AsiaMaps.I tried all the Posibilities to download it but always in vain.If you have any AsiaMaps kindly send it to my email firstname.lastname@example.org Thank u very much in advance.
If you have upgraded the software(fw)it does preform a little better but yes the device is quite slow.Install 3rd party apps onto memory card and free up as much RAM as possible.Hopefully future firmware will make the unit preform faster.To the other guy-Nokia are heavily tied with symbian so unfortunately if you want a nokia smartphone you have to put up with symbian inadequaties.
Anybody getting maps in GPS heading wrong direction ? if so how you fix it ? my phone when the sea side should be on the left its on the right ?
Definitely an SE phone.
My choices would be

I have recently bought this phone and when I try and use the GPS it says I have no internet connection.
I bought from o2 and it cam with a 1GB mem card with the maps pre-oinstalled. It seems to be trying to use the internet to get a GPS lock. Is this normal? and how can I get it to fond a GPS signal?
You can win a Nokia N95 in The Web Official of Nokia Nseries with the Campaings N95 in your pocket.
it was very hard choosing between N95 and N93i because they are sooo different and they both have something that i like. in order to make it easier, i bought both of them and it has cost me $1400 but to my surprise N95 doesn't act like it is an A-list phone bacause the GPS reciever is not working really well ( ASUS P353 is better ). n95 has some great features with it that no other phone models have though... in the case of my N93i, it has less good picture and video quality than N95 but it has the very sophisticated and unique swiveling panel design that i like to show-off to my friends and strangers as well(heheheheehehehee). why just can't nokia make something like a phone that has the camera of an N95 as well as its feature and with an architecture of an N93i? in this way, we will not end up buying two ExPeNsIvE phones in order to suffice our hunger of a phone with style, sophistication and functionality... nokia! start planning to make the N95i...
