Mobile Gmaps - as above but includes, Microsoft, Yahoo and Ask Maps as optional maps

Would work better with the preloaded maps, though GPS fix is fast and plenty of real-time data been fed back to the user. Tip get a GPS fix before you start your workout. Standing still also helps GPS locate you faster
So you can't have Internet Calling (Voice Over IP) on Orange (UK)?
Well Mapperz can
The little phone and world icon is Internet Calling Active any Outgoing Calls are using the T'internet connection and if move out of Wifi Range it flips over to Orange (UK) GPRS EGPRS
works like a normal call. Also picks up other Wifi unsecure networks and uses them. So in theory free calls forever?
Fring are to be next with an N95 Voice OverIP
Truphone does work with a free £2/$2 start up.

Top Tips for N95 Users -
Reset your N95 to Factory Settings before use - for faster GPS Fixes.
Switch off Applications, Bluetooth, Infrared, Wifi re-scan etc to improve battery life in GPS mode.
Format your new MicroSD Card on the phone first before connecting to a PC via USB.
Load the Map Application before you load any map data to the device, this puts important files and folders on your memory card, and makes loading the map data faster when in use.
And one careful tip, this device is very loud when used in media/video/game mode - even 50% is very loud, careful when use switch to earphones - you will hurt your ears.
Get a car charger if being navigated over 2 hours by this device.
