In this feature on free navigation software Steve rounds up the ways you can find you can get driving directions and instructions on the Nokia N95 and other S60 devices. There is Nokia's Smart2Go (Nokia Maps), of course, but he also covers the Java applications from amaZe, Nav4All, Yahoo and Google.

Thanks for the roundup.
I'm coming to London tomorrow (from Denmark), and so have downloaded maps for England. (Would have liked to be able to choose a smaller region...) But I'm not happy with its routing choices, so I'd like to try the Yahoo solution because of your remark on its routing. I assume it offers tracking. Is it possible to preload its maps and not use the network (at roaming charges)?
And another thing. I am reluctant to upgrade my firmware from v11 to 12 because I think I remember having read that the tracking feature of Maps has been removed. Is that true? I don't need paid navigation as long as a free tracking option exists...

Just been trying J2MEMap and it's got one of the most appallingly designed and unstable interfaces I've ever seen. And then there's the question of it not legally licensing the data it uses, so it could be shut down etc.
