The inbuilt GPS receiver merely does cell tower triangulation straight out of the box, however if you install some Tomtom software it instantly becomes just as powerful as my Tomtom XL which you can see my review in print in another article. Unfortunately I do not have any photos of the phone being used as a GPS.

There isn’t really much to tell about the GPS, there is about a two second delay on the screen to where you actually are positioned on the phone but that’s not too much of a drama thanks to voice direction and spoken street names. The delay is only really noticeable at over 60km/h, which at 60km/h you shouldn’t really be looking at a 2.5” LCD screen trying to work out where you are driving.
