I think I remember reading somewhere that this cost £40~ish pounds for something like 3 years or so - which is fair enough as this is probably longer than I will have the phone.

Anyway hopefully if I can figure out the firmware flash thing, the WLAN and bluetooth, GPS and a few other things with will be a bit more stable too.

It's alright I guess - but a lot of it still seems a bit glitchy really.
Hey, crazy people! You should of course use Nokia Maploader (installs on PC) to download (preload) maps directly to your memory card instead of using the 2G/3G network on phone (...and save lots of money..). You can find it here:

Regarding GPS: You have to pay for navigation service (voice and direction guidings). Pay for region and period (e.g. Scandinavia; 1w, 1m, 1y or 3y). The maps and localization (where am I on map...) aswell as the route planner is free of charge.
