Nokia N97 GPS Nav App Round-up

I’ve compiled a list with video demos of all the GPS navigation applications that work on the Nokia N97.   After some testing, I also included my thoughts on the pros and cons of each.

NDrive 3.5.18



  • 3D Maps of important landmarks
  • All input is through a on-screen keyboard so you can navigate without openning the slider


  • None (so far)

TomTom Mobile 6.01



  • Intuitive interface (IMO)


  • No touchscreen support
  • Gets stuck on some screens because of inacessible buttons
  • No spoken names of streets
  • Qwerty input does not work (have to use T9)

Sygic Mobile 7.71



  • Similar intuitive interface as TomTom


  • None (so far)

Garmin Mobile XT 5.00.50



  • 3D Maps


  • Images sometimes get cutoff in landscape mode
  • Seems a little slow in recalculating routes

Nokia Ovi Maps 3.0



  • 3D Maps of major landmarks


  • Seems to require a data connection to search point of interests

Since I’ve always been a fan of TomTom since I have my Dell Axim x51v, my personal favorite nav app on the N97 is Sygic Mobile since its a copycat of TomTom.
