Mobile phone with SatNav (no subscription required) unlike the Nokia N95. Unlocked to any network (apart from 3) and comes with a 1GB SD card containing UK and Ireland Maps!

Bargain, been looking for ne of these types of phones for ages. Was going to get an Nokia N95 but my mates got one and he hates it. It's too bulky and the SatNav function has to be paid for!

PS Did a quick search and it's coming up at £189.99 on Amazon!!!

I'm not voting cold on your deal, but I wanted to comment on what you have said about the N95.

As an owner of an N95 for 6 months what I will state is that this phone comes nowhere close and cannot be compared to an N95 in any way shape or form. You should really pick another phone to compare it to.

This is what I have on my N95:

4Gb Memory card
Divx Player
Garmin XT
TV-out function
Wireless LAN connectivity
Bluetooth 2.0 EDR for stereo headsets
5 megapixel camera
16 million colour screen

Yes, the N95 is dearer but it is in a different league to the device you are offering and offers far more features and abilities.

"TWIG Finder"?

My Dog is going to be so happy!!!

I can never find a stick when he needs one on those long walks.

I had no idea Sat Nav could be sued to locate Twigs too.

I bet the twig database is just a freebie taster so that your dog forces you to pay for the upgrade to get the Stick database.

Damn! The marketing departments in these companies are clever. :p

People seem to be missing the point of this one.

The comparison was a little skewed, like comparing a fiat and a ferrari but this still seems pretty good value for a portable GPS system with built in phone.

I bought the £20 Virgin Lobster and use TomTom on it, but it needed a seperate GPS receiver so this woud be handier.

Now to the important bit - are you sure about the 25p cornish pasties!!!

This phone is a Benefon, whio arent the best known phone brand in the world, but they were set up by defectors from Nokia, and retain the "old" Nokia quality levels. I had one a few years ago, and it was very well made...

Sorry if i've upset all the N95 owners out there, i'm just going on what my friend said and he get's a new phone every few months so knows a thing or two about phone.

I appreciate the N95 has more functions etc but i was just comparing the SatNav and price etc with this phone :whistling:

Anyway..................... Like i said in my OP i've been looking for ages for a SatNav phone and this was the best deal for those two functions i could find. Here is a full review i found to tell you all some extra info about (not written by me before any more abuse comes my way) :whistling: :-

Absolutely brilliant sat nav in my view, and best of all its free and no messing around with set ups, registering or subscriptions like with other sat nav phones. It all works as soon as you turn it on. Clear and LOUD spoken sat nav, various languages, and full postcodes, plus up to date traffic info. And at 200 quid its HALF the cost of others!. Whats cool as well is the GPS profiling, you can choose and create new GPS profiles, eg, super economy mode to conserve battery life. All GPS phones drain batteries quickly but with this feature you can control it well. Of course when you're in the car, its on charge all the time anyway so battery life is no issue. When you want GPS and sat nav out of vehicle, eg, biking, walking, finding points of interest, etc, then super economy mode is fine. I was well impressed with the box package as you get everything included, and it syncs brilliantly with a PC. Very fast and easy, all my contacts and images, straight on. Its limited in that there is no camera, and its not great for music, but you dont buy it for that. Probably the best feature of all is the POI points of interest feature where you can type in what you're looking for whilst on the move, eg, nearest train station, hospital, restaurant, etc, and it will take you straight there. It also finds other twig users and offers map route to them. You can also send your exact location to anyone, and find others' locations. Its quite addictive and you find yourself using it just for the sake of it!! I havent used the emergency alert feature yet....and may never do but its good peace of mind. I have designated 2 emergency contacts to receive a text location, and 2-way voice call if pushed in emergency. I guess its useful if you're working alone or getting mugged. I tend to think of my twig as a sat nav GPS device, which is also a phone; rather than the other way round. Its not as slim and good looking as modern phones, so dont buy it if you want a fashion device, but its the smallest and best looking sat nav i've seen, and it does everything else i need as well as make calls. I would recommend it to anyone who needs sat nav every day, and wants the benefit of GPS on the go, finding places and never getting lost, on foot, bike, whatever. Also, you eliminate the risk of your sat nav getting nicked from your car since its always with you. The price point makes it a definite bargain.

Yes I really think that is should be compared only to phones that have built in GPS. Ok........erm... N95, 6110 and the GPS Blackberrys then!:roll:

I am alone in thinking the N95 is a bit too chunky? And isn't it known for having a pretty short battery life? I am looking at the N82 for my next phone. Fairly sure this Netto phone with be on the tubby side to be fair.

Erm... I think the OP was refering to the fact that the N95 could do a lot more than satnav and therefore the comparison was unfair.
#31
If you want to know more about the phone it is the Benefon Twig Discovery head over to

http://www.benefon.com/index.html

Benefon have been making Phones with GPS for years now but one of the niche players in the mobile market.

Is that a Twig in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me.......their marketing department could do with a little more thinking time....me thinks.

Too "chunky" - hmm, lets see what devices it replaces in your pocket then?

A phone (obviously).
An MP3 player.
A media player (Archos etc.).
A digital camera.
A standalone GPS device.

So instead of carrying round 5 seperate devices that all require memory cards and chargers, I have one.

As for battery life I have a car charger that it connects up to. You can also get a powered desk stand and spare battery for about £7 delivered off ebay.

Battery life was improved in the last firmware update - it increases MP3 playback by an additional 3 hours.

I shall just end by saying that the original offer on this thread is fine if you simply want a phone & GPS access in one unit for under £130.

id rather use a michelin map than this sat nav - rank phone too

That's a great price. Voted hot.
But how dare they make a GPS phone so ugly?!

It's still too chunky for some and I got rid of mine for that reason as well as having a poor battery that barely lasted a whole day at the rate I used it.

I agree it does a lot of things, but it doesn't quite do any exceptionally well.

Gotta be better than the N95! :thumbsup:

Unless, like the N95 this is also an overpriced and over rated housebrick!

If it is like the N95, then dont forget to wear your steel toe cap shoes whilst using it! Hate to think the damage it would do to your foot if you dropped it! :lol:

It might be all of the above but as a camera it was too slow to load up. MP3 player ****. Prefer my nano to listen and orgnise music. GPS was ok but easier to use TomTom. I still haven't figured out why people want to watch videos on tiny screens (might just be me). Phone battery is poo. Phone is big.

I have a N95 and a Samsung D900i. Prefer the D900i. Don't have to worry about the battery life. I should not need to charge my phone at my desk ,while I'm drive, when I'm sleeping and every opporunity known to man. N95 hasn't moved from my bedroom table in about 3 months.

I'm locked into a 18month contract with the N95. Bought the mini-door-stop thinking it is a must have gadget. Will be sticking to basic phones now. Best phone ever was Samsung P300 calculator phone.
