T-Mobile is offering a Nokia N70 mobile using ALK Technologies' Co-pilot Live 6 navigation software, the first version to run on the Symbian operating system. The N70 receives location data via a Bluetooth GPS receiver and real time traffic updates are available via the phone's 3G connection. Street maps are supplied by Navteq.
Co-pilot Live 6 for Symbian maintains almost all the features that can be found on the Windows Mobile version. However, route profiling has been omitted. ALK's marketing director, David Quin, believes that 'compared with the bigger screens [of standalone GPS devices] the phone is not as distracting to drivers'.
