N95 Free Applications - including GPS & Maps

N95 Free Applications - including GPS & Maps

N95 in the Box
Source: Mapperz (this blog (via adsense) helped buy this device!))

To Start an Official Application (Supports Google Earth Output- KML)

Sports Tracker
"If you own a N95 one of the first things you should do is download the recently released free application 'Sports Tracker' from Nokia. Sports Tracker is aimed at the sports or general user on foot or cycling and more importantly it provides full route tracking with the ability to upload to Google Earth."

MapLoader and the Standard Software on the PC>Phone does the Job.
(though have a day to hand loading the maps on - 150mb took 6 hours)

Though recommend you only use this for Foot and Car Naviagation in Semi-Urban and Urban Areas. Or if you do hill walking, hiking and mountaineering this software is not for you.
The solution here would be to be able to import your own maps.

update:more free official apps here

Mobile GMaps
"Mobile GMaps is a FREE application that displays Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Windows Live Local (MSN Virtual Earth) and Ask.com Maps and satellite imagery on Java J2ME-enabled mobile phones, PDAs and other devices. MGMaps can connect to a GPS receiver over bluetooth or use internal GPS features on some phones in order to automatically display the map for your current position."
More Info and Download at mgmaps

Online Data Backup
All this Data but what if the phone goes down and and out have not backed up your phone?
"Store your mobiles phone numbers, calendar and SMS safely with ZYB. Sign up now, and get a copy of your precious mobile content"

A Very Fast Calculator
Try this simple example: start the standard calculator and do 2/3 x 7. It takes 13 clicks. Using Calcium it only takes 6!
