Awesome GPS

greatness, Amazon
22 December 2011
  • Summary: I traveled around Europe this past summer. I used this Nokia GPS. Was soo awesome. I did not have to preload maps. It has the world map on it so was easy to get around. It saved me many times from getting lost. Was so easy to use, I even sold my Garmin because i loved this one soo much.

Everything is good EXCEPT the Tolls-free option

  • Summary: I had this Nokia GPS for the past 2 years and for the most part loved it. It is very easy to use, and is made by Nokia! Display is a large 4.3", has built-in bluetooth and contacts list, MP3 player, Video player, FM transmitter, 2D/3D maps, and has a female voice-skin that speaks street name. (it really does have everything u can ask for, except speech recognition!) ONE major flaw: Do NOT use the NO-TOLL option.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 October 2010
  • Summary: My GPS just stopped working after 1.5 years . :(it would not light up. I have used it very moderately, and carefully. Once it started making continuous sound ( teeeeeeeeeeeeee )which just would not stop. i tried discoonecting, taking out the memory card putting it back in etc etc.. finally I had to leave it like that for the night and the next day the sound finally stopped.. After that it worked for few more months and BAM.. its dead now.. is this its lifetime?

Excellent TomTom/Garmin/Mio Alternative

scubasteevo, Ebay

  • Summary: Most people have no idea Nokia made this GPS, which is a shame because it's a very nice unit. It has a 4.3" screen, bluetooth, TTS, FM transmitter, among other features. Although the original MSRP was $300+, they could be found for much less than a comparable Garmin, etc. due to the lack of name recognition in the GPS market. The best feature of this GPS is it's WinCE operating system. With basic computer knowledge you can use just about any GPS software you'd like.

Nokia N500

29574, Ebay
7 August 2009
  • Summary: Not that good, GO DOWN THE ROAD FOR AWHILE?????? (what kind of directions is this), turn on road ?? (what it says), does not say what road, etc. Does not show the road names like it should, So if you want something that works good and shows and tells you the road name, buy something else........ The Navigon that I have out does this one..........

NO idea

jpappas30, Ebay
26 July 2009
  • Summary: It worked fairly well, but has some limitations regarding locations and routes, i.e. one time it took us around the block and back to the same street we were on to start with. It is not the easiest to use and understand especially if you are trying to make an intermediate stop on a trip. My friends Tom Tom was easier to use and understand the booklet.

Good device, but has old maps and lacks maps update feature

Rahul Chaudhary, Amazon
4 May 2009
  • Summary: I bought this product for $90 from eBay. I bought it hoping that it will live up to the standards set by Nokia Maps that I've used on my Nokia N75 phone. The only reason why I'm rating this product low is because it has 2007 maps and Nokia does not provide latest maps. Pros:- - interface is consistent with Nokia Maps, that is available on cell phone - locks on to up to 8 satellites - has FM transmitter that can be used to broadcast songs, video and turn-by-turn...

Awesome for the price

R. Bilyk, Amazon
27 January 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this for $110. Great price for all this can do. I love the integration with the phone, it is an excellent speakerphone in the car with great noise cancelling results. The navigation interface is straight forward although it would be nice to be able to customize it a bit more. For this price I don't think anything with comparable features comes close.
