    Nokia sat nav

    I loved the sat nav on my old Nokia N8. I found accurate, easy to read and fast to recalculate. I miss it now the office has moved onto iPhones. Hopefully they we re-licence the iPhone version sometime soon.

      I only just found out that the current Lumias don't do re-routing according to traffic conditions, so my N8 has been pulled out of the drawer; so much for convergence.

With Google now pushing towards offline maps, Nokia are in severe danger of being left behind in mapping, just as they were with smartphones. With mapping gone, there won't be much left and they'll have to go back to selling wellies.
