  • The Nokia 6110 Navigator is a 3G Smartphone which comes with a slide opening mechanism which is easy to open with a single hand. The phone comes in a black & silver coloured casing which is highly stylish. The handset weighs a total of 125 grams & feels good to hold in the users hand with it’s 49mm width, 20mm depth & 101mm height. The Nokia 6110 Navigator is easy to operate & a pleasure to use with all it’s high quality business & media features.

The screen comes with a high screen resolution which is 320 x 240 pixels & provides a clear & bright display
  • Music comes second:-
    As you might have expected, the music player has nothing extrao

    rdinary to show us. A little facelift of the Symbian classics is the only novelty in the player in Nokia 6110 Navigator. It is very convenient indeed, and manages audio files and playlists seamlessly. Furthermore, the convenient sorting by genres, artists, etc. is also present here, so you will have no problem organizing your favorite songs.

  • The Navigator:-
    Now, this is probably the most important feature of the phone. Despite our eagerness to test it right at the beginning, we left it for the end. We were really excited to see if the device lives up to the expectations, which come with the Navigator name. As it turns out, the handset is well worth it. Pleasant surprises start with the very first glance and keep coming. The dedicated navigation key is a clear sign that, unlike most other GPS enabled mobiles, navigation is taken seriously here.
  • The software itself is the next thing to amaze us. This time the Nokia maps software is neglected in favor of a third party application. If you think this is totally unlike Nokia, you are darn right, but this time the Finnish company has made a compromise and it’s all in favor of the user experience with the Nokia 6110 Navigator. The Route 66 application is used and we have all the reasons to praise its navigation functionality. The program itself is embedded in the phone’s firmware, while the maps and other data are loaded on the memory card. Further on, the program exercises Assisted GPS using data connection for quicker initial locking to satellites, the so-called cold start. Be aware that it involves a few kilobytes of traffic, so if you don’t want to pay for that, you might prefer to switch the A-GPS off and rely solely on the GPS receiver.
  • The GPS receiver of the Nokia 6110 Navigator is doing a great job. It has nothing to do with the frequently criticized built-in GPS receiver of Nokia N95 and is far more enjoyable to work with. Being much more sensitive than the one mounted on Nokia’s top multimedia device, the receiver of Nokia 6110 Navigator will find you practically anywhere. Tall buildings are not that much of a problem anymore and, in most cases, you will get pretty exact bearings even in areas where these are a common sight. Still, there will be situations when the phone won’t be able to track enough satellites and the coordinates will probably lack in accuracy.
  • End of journey:-
    Summing up our impressions, the Nokia 6110 Navigator looks all set to be in the driver’s seat. We certainly had a lot of fun doing the review. The Navigator is truly ambidextrous, offering great smartphone performance and full GPS functionality. Add the above average multimedia capabilities, and you have a tempting all-rounder. The crashes some Symbian phones just can’t seem to help are not an issue here. For the time of our review we experienced none of them. The software stability of the device looks great, considered we pushed the phone to its limits. To us, the Navigator belongs among the best rated mobile devices. With a price tag of 350 Euro (before taxes or subsides), we guess it will be an intriguing offer, bringing smartphone performance and full in-car navigation capabilities.
