Nokia has been one of the pioneers of on-board sat nav functionality and the Nokia N86 is its best offering yet. Don't let the camera phone tag deceive you. The first device to come preloaded with Nokia Maps 3.0, the N86 is designed with both the pedestrian and driver in mind, and users can enjoy full voice-instructions, 2D and 3D maps or simple text instructions. A near instant satellite fix (even when indoors), users can enjoys birds-eye views of tourist landmarks. Nokia has also fitted the device with a magnetic compass which automatically turns the map in accordance to what direction you are pointing in. A search bar is an integral part of any premium sat nav device and of course it goes without saying that the Nokia N86 is packing. Type in the name of a street, postcode, building or landmark and you'll be given the option of seeing where it is on a map, how to get there by foot or car or simply add it to an existing route.
