Only to download the Ovi app and maps in the first place. You can then navigate without an Internet connection.:thumbsup:

looks like a good phone for the price.

I have two of them in the household, (Voda branded, use them on Asda mobile ,bought for 65 quid recently @ Asda) and I consider them the best buy I have made for a while - the only addition I would like, being WiFi, although I can live without it as I wouldn't use it a lot.

May well be cheaper elsewhere but I've got £20 vouchers to shift & Daddys Day is just round the corner so I'm glad you posted!
Ta very much.

Assuming it works the same way as the 5800, you can transfer the maps to the phone from a PC via usb cable/bluetooth using either nokia map loader or OVI suite and put the phone's map application in offline mode.

The phone will transfer a small amount of data to aid in obtaining a fix, unless you disable assisted GPS, however turning assisted GPS off does have a very significant impact on the performance of the GPS (at least it does on a 5800) although if the GPS has been used in the last few days (I usually run the location app while it is charging) it will at least find some satellites fairly quickly.

The 5800 also has a network position option, not sure if that counts against data tariffs, or even if it works in the uk :)

I couldn't update the Ovi app via Bluetooth, so I bought a usb cable on EBay. Everything worked fine then:thumbsup:

Yes, the other benefit, bits are dirt cheap, I think I paid £1.64 for a genuine cable, car and mains chargers are very cheap and batteries widely available.

I am the same, and then again who needs Wi-Fi if you have a data plan? Bar the slightly quicker transfers for things like Spotify, you won't really notice.
