N79 Ovi maps license code
Hello all is there a way to get this working as on the n79 this does not seem to be free?
Thanks all.

$10 per year
The license fee for VOICE turn by turn guiding on older devices with Nokia Maps is $10 per year .
However all the other functions are free , including free worldwide Maps . You can download them to your device's memorycard (~ 4GB ) using Nokia PC Suite on your PC/Mac .
I used to navigate , by setting a favorite as destination , just using the screen . Of course this is a silent mode .

Thanks mate ,think I will try and install tom tom to the handset.........
Any suggestions?

Tom Tom has discontinued support for Symbian handsets , I think allready in 2009 . Around the time free navigation with OVI Maps was introduced on newer Nokia hansets , however allso on the older E71 (produced 2007)

Try Sygic Mobile Maps instead , while they are up to date .

Here is a review of Sygic Mobile Maps versus OVI Maps in German ( Austrian Reviewer )
