What you could do is install TOMTOM Mobile onto it, my friend did this but Nokia blocked TOMTOM using teh internal GPS device. You could buy a cheap GPS and do it that way? I did hear a firmware update was going to unlock this but i'm not sure if that came about.

I there might be a way of using the built in GPS receiver for a third party app such as Tom Tom.
Try looking here: ipmart-forum.com/for…388

Mine came already preinstalled on the memory card with my N95, but they are free to download anyway.

Download the MapLoader program here: europe.nokia.com/A45…291 (right hand side)

After you install it on your PC it should let you download whatever maps you like for free. Then just transfer them to your phone and your sorted!

nokia didnt block tom tom but tom tom need to make the software that allows it to use the internal GPS!

Hi There Garmin Mobile will work with your N95, Working well on Mine, Google it for the instruction's very easy, Then all you have to do is get a copy of garmin Mobile, Just do a Torrent search....

Hope all goes well

garmin XT is currently the best freeish software for nokia
