Has anyone used GPS/Mapping software for a Symbian phone yet?...it is even worth while?I've tried Navicore Personal with Pretec Bluetooth GPS and it's WONDERFUL!! I couldn't imagine how good my N-Gages display can be in real navigation. Audio guidance helps a lot also.

Navicore Personal covers only Finland at the moment but there are similar applications for other regions...

I wish they would include TomTom Mobile instead. At least you won't have to pay for a subscription (like with Wayfinder)

I really want one of these, mainly for when I'm in the car though.
I've already got the bluetooth handsfree kit in my car!

Are there any S60 Nokias that can do two connections at once?

I use a 6600 with Bluetooth GPS and Route 66 Mobile, works very well.

ATM Navicore maps cover Skandinavia (Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland) and according to their page they will unveil maps for Western Europe during this year. Hopefully before summer holidays!

I've been using Navicore Skandinavia with 9300 (1GB MMC, Globalsat BT-GPS) and it is even more amazing than in S60! It may be even better than TomTom with Palm! Only the screen in 9300 may be a little bit too small for following the map...
