It is missing from the 'Find places' which I do admit is pretty annoying
that's not good enough, it's not logical that i have to press search if i want to enter an address. plus the problem with search is that it does not guess the street name based on the first two letters of the word like it would before. the one who changed that is the dumbest navigation software developer on the planet, great he's in charge of nokias navigation devision.

I do not understand why you would consider it illogical. How is it any different to typing the address in a multiple search field?

Uhm no.

Just an example here: I am planning to travel to Lewes Road, Brighton. I type in: le brighton in the search field.

It suggested a list of addresses beginning with 'Le' in Brighton which includes:

Lewes Road, Brighton
Leanhurst Court Road, Brighton
Leybourne Road, Brighton
Leybourne Close, Brighton
St Leonards Road, Brighton

Pretty good guessing to me...

This works the same as previous versions except in the previous version you are required to complete two fields to get the same results.

Again, how is this method any different from typing the address in a multiple search field?

Seems like the E71 and E66 versions are exactly same file, downloaded and tried to install both of them on my hacked N95. It's complaining about that it's not supported.

Real Use

Works but...

- it'll either say the directions OR beep, but not both; I need both if I'm going to be chatting in the car and listening for directions
- weak search capabilities, better hang onto GoogleMaps
- poor/questionable traffic updates

It's a wonderful novelty otherwise. Amazing they've squeezed this much onto the E71!

Free navigation should be on there in the first place, I was annoyed that I had to pay for the feature but I am glad that my phone now lets me do this for free
