Nokia 330 - Linux Satellite Navigation

The Nokia 330 is a Satellite Navigation system (Nokia call it “Auto Navigation”) that bears a passing resemblance to the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet. Like the 770, the Nokia 330 isn’t a phone but the really surprising thing lies deep underneath.

One nice feature with the Nokia 330 is that it can play back multimedia content, such as videos and MP3 music tracks. It also comes with Bluetooth, presumably so that traffic updates and other value added features can be accessed. Overall, the Nokia 330 is a pretty slim satellite navigation system at 81 x 109 x 30mm and 205 grams in weight. The sales package includes the “gooseneck” mounting kit, a memory card, phone holder and USB cable.

The Nokia 330 comes with the Route 66 Satellite Navigation system and it offers pan-European mapping (although not every country has 100% coverage). The maps are preloaded on a 2Gb memory card, which can also be used to store other data. The navigation software has the usual combination of spoken and visual directions, 2D/3D views, and it comes with a touch-sensitive 3.5″ display. The GPS receiver is a SiRF III GSC3 unit.
