    Hi, I'm thinking about upgrading to a SE k700i or k750i (k750i if I justify it enough!).

    I remember seeing some navigation software on a friends mobile a few months back, however I can't remember what phone/software it was. I was really impressed and therefore it's something that's in the back of my mind for my next phone.

    I see that TomTom mobile 5 is available, which seems to be the best? However it only supports a small number of phones and not the 700/750

    Does anyone know of any navigation software available for these :lease:

    Also, a newbie phone question ... I have a pay as you go Vodafone SIM in an old Nokia. Can I simply use the same SIM card in an unlocked or Vodafone locked k700/k750 to keep all my details and actual number??? Do I need to do any 're-registering with Vodafone?

    You can swap the sim in to a sim free or vodaphone loacked K700/K750. I would recomend staying away from vodaphone locked K700s because they have the ability to set mp3s as ringtones disabled.

    Can't get onto Esato from here (SurfControl restrictions). The most popular apps for GPS on Phones (Route 66, TomTom) are only for Smartphones - ie. Nokia 6600/7610/6630, Windows devices (Orange SPV, etc.).

    Didn't think anything like that was supported on the K750, etc. Although I guess it could maybe be possible via J2ME/MIDP2.

    Very true however, there's an application called DRM which will convert MP3's to enable you to use them for ringtones, alarm signals etc even on a Vodafone branded mobile....
