Nokia 6710 Navigator

[Mobile World Congress] As its name indicates, the Nokia 6710 Navigator is built to be a perfect guide in cities or elsewhere. It has Maps, the GPS navigation from Nokia which features a pedestrian mode – the most useful mode on a cellphone in our opinion. What we like the most is that Nokia Maps will interact with OVI to sync not only content but also routes that you have created on your PC. This is really cool, building routes on a PC and doing a “sync” over the air (OTA) is the way to go. Of course, that doesn’t prevent users from entering the route/destination directly from the phone. The second thing that we like about Nokia Maps is that the mapping data is on your memory card – there’s no need for (stinky) data downloads as it is often the case with other mobile mapping apps. Also, you probably need a map the most when you’re traveling far and fetching mapping data over the air means potential expensive data roaming charges.
