Only the software? Does your phone has a GPS?

Take a look for GPS for mobile phones:

Hey Connor ,
 
Regarding the software ..The one which i am using right now is called NAV4ALL and it can be downloaded for free from their webisite until 15th of August..I think it is quite OK ,works worldwide and it is easy to be used....Having in mind that it is for free i think it is worth trying it ..I personally had some doubts ,because it is a new and unfamiliar product ,but as Tomtom was too expensive for me i decided to put up with what`s left ..Good for me ,it turned out that it is not that bad ..I gues that it is a matter of promotin..
 
You have to check whether it is compatible with your phone ,but i think there will be no problem..

the only navigation software i am aware is for Series 60 Symbios mobile phones. I don't know if there is a related software for K750 (i own it too), probably in JAVA...

yeah, i'm also using nav4all for a week or so, and i think the programme is alright.. it's not as fancy as tomtom, but it serves well as a GPS navigator... it's a bit simplified and has 2D maps but the cool thing is that it downloads only needed maps, thus you're not left with traffic of unwanted areas for which you'll have to pay anyways...

wow ,so many users of this software ...i thought i was not that popular ,but i guess i was wrong :)
i have been using it for a couple of months now ,but not every day ,just when i travell and i still think it is ok ..the maps are good and it is easy to use ..but guys don`t you think that it is a little too expensive to use ? i talked with some friends who use tomtom and they explayned me that nav4all definitely tries to compensate for its free download with expensive on-going prices ..what do u think?

the problem would be that there are no maps for Greece, so we cannot use it

i think it should have maps of Greece ,as the phone downloads the maps directly from a satelite :)

I think the program somehow live-streams the maps from the internet... it downloads it on the spot.. However, the bad thing about the program is the user-friendliness and interactivenss of the maps. They are 2D and it seems like tomtom outbeats them in this area... :s

well yeah ..i know about the maps and u r right indeed-there is much space for improvement ..but in the end this a software with a free download and i don`t think at this point we can expect that much from it ..:)
but what sometimes bothers me is the price -the data is sometimes too much and it downloads it for a long time.i guess it depends on the provider ,but is really unpleasant

There's another app in development which start to do what you are looking for : http://we-travel.co.cc
It's a free application for java mobile phones. As it stores the maps locally on the phone, there's no need to have a live connection.
It uses free map data from open street map, so you can actually help develop map data for your region.
There's already some countires freely available for download at their site.
