    Default Free Google Maps Satnav

    I dont know if it has been posted already but anyone with an Android phone check your Google maps. They have activated the satnav feature and to be honest its the best satnav I have ever used. It is worth it just for the automatic switch to google streetview when you enter the last street/road !

    You can nav using the satellite view or standard map and select Traffic view so you can instantly see how congested the roads are and get re-routed !

    All for free, I have it on my HTC Desire and it is awesome.

    A link below to the functionality it is the american site but the UK version is the same.

    I dont think its compatible with SE phones mate. Most Nokia S60 software is as High spec SE's use the same software.
