Good day all, probably not the best venue to express my dissatisfaction but I am very disappointed with Nokia and their resellers. A couple of weeks ago I had a look around for a phone based on some of the info here on the site and other sources and decided that the N95 will do what I want and more, one must have was the navigation feature so I don't need to buy a separate tom tom or similar. I was advised that the voice navigation was an extra for about $130 for 3 years, which I thought was ok as the phone will probably be replaced within that period. Pick up the phone which is very high tech and try to connect to the navigation feature just to see that the cost has now been increased by 300%. I ring support in Asia somewhere only to be told "sorry but no there wasn't a price increase but the 3 year plan has been reduced to 1 year" and it's not their fault its the supplier of the software, what hogwash.
Sorry to dribble on for so long but I feel ripped off and no help from either reseller or Nokia, guess the old saying buyer beware>

Yes you have to pay for the subscription for the navigation.
There are other ways you can use navigation you will need to search on google or just send an email to me at wrexed03 @ hotmail.com remove the spaces. I should be able to point you in the right direction. I run multiple gps applications on my n95 eg garmin, tom tom and route66

I bought the Nokia Navigator because (6110??) because the voice navigation was free. The girl in the shop told me that the N95 and all the others only have a map system similar to looking at a refidex map which wouldnt be good if trying to drive and navigate at the same time.

I love my Nokia Navigator which also provides useful info like where is the closest McDonalds or KFC even!!!
