Mobile Choice Awards crowns Nokia N8 As Best Sat Nav, beating gigantum Dell Streak, iPhone 4, Garmin Asus Navi Phone and Desire
Thanks to Alex68 for the heads up to mynokiablog.com/tips on this post from Mobile Choice UK. They’ve awarded the N8 the title of Best Sat Nav.
And here’s their reason why:
Nokia announced this year that its excellent Ovi Maps would not only no longer cost a penny, you could also utilise your Nokia’s navigation no matter where you are in the world. With the Nokia N8 this means, users can enjoy detailed maps on the vibrant 3.5-inch display complete with voice guidance to their destination, stopping off at any number of points of interest, whether travelling by car or on foot. With an array of features including the ability to record your own voice guidance instructions, as well as a host of Lonely Planet Guides preloaded, Ovi Maps latest trick, ‘Check In’ lets you post your GPS location with a message and/or picture to social networks including Facebook and Twitter.
In my experience with the N8, GPS is fast and accurate – maintains the signal once locked (which is quick thanks to the three points of connection, GPS, A-GPS and WiFi positioning). Combine with Ovi Maps and it has always let me find my way out when I’m lost. It’s really pleasing to see Ovi Maps and Nokia Sat Nav graduate to a level where they’re just really reliable and not just some gimmick.
