The best GPS mobile phones

The best mobile phones for GPS navigation.

Nokia N96

If you're stuck on Symbian but still pine for navigation with a big G, then there are ways of getting Google Maps onto your phone. However, Google Maps isn't the only contender in the smartphone market, and Nokia is leading the way in providing an alternative solution with its own Maps software. The current stable version, Maps 2.0, works on Symbian S60 devices like the Nokia N96 and provides easy turn-by-turn directions and voice guidance with an interface that suits the smaller screens of Nokia mobiles. It won't rival the information available on a 4.3in widescreen in-car GPS navigation device, for example, but the Nokia N96 is an adequate GPS navigation device.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
