The five most popular phones to get the service are the Nokia N97, N97 Mini, Nokia E72, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and the new Nokia 5230 - even more impressive considering the N97 was a latecomer to the upgrade party.
Nokia's Executive Vice President Anssi Vanjoki was suitably elated with the rapid take-up:
" This is great news for our 3rd party application developers. Within a matter of days there is an installed base of more than 1 million active users all potentially hungry for new and innovative location-aware apps.
When we announced free walk & drive navigation we knew it would be a game-changer. The number of people now using their Nokia for navigation, and as a result looking for more location-aware software, is growing faster than even we predicted."
Bringing free turn-by-turn navigation to Symbian phones has been an interesting move for Nokia, both putting their handsets within striking distance of dedicated GPS devices at an attractive price-point, as well as re-invigorating interest in Symbian as a legitimate platform for developers.
