free [as in beer] turn-by-turn navigation comes to e71

… comes but not via main entrance.

in ~February this year Nokia [ in desperate attempt to re-gain some market it’s losing to androids and iphones? ] made turn-by-turn navigation available for free to its most recent phones including e72, n97 and other models. like many other e71 owners i got upset since there was no clear indication if / when similar software will be offered for my phone. but apparently nokia is working on something for us too. at their forum board i found thread about it and there it was – link to sis file with installer of nokia maps 3.0.3 for nokia e71: http://nds1.nokia.com/PRODUCT_METADATA_0/Explore_Services/Ovi_Maps/nokia_maps_3.03_10wk11_b04_s60_3.1_rom.Nocs.sis [mirror].

maps can be downloaded with nokia map downloader.

hooray for nokia… i like them up to the point that even my next phone might run symbian rather than android.
