So I'm looking for a voice navigation solution for the E71. Garmin Mobile XT looks like it would do the trick, because I can use the open maps, and not have to pay for data when navigating.

I understand that to use the internal GPS on the E71, I need to purchase a license for the software. (Yes, I am aware that there are workarounds for this, but I'd like to stay legal).

I couldn't find anywhere selling licenses or anything related really (without buying a whole new microSD preloaded with the software). I called Garmin support today, and the rep told me that the software has now been canned (his words). Apparently no replacements are in the pipeline.

So, what are my options for voice navigation requiring no data connection?

I've found Amaze GPS and Nav4All, but these require data.
We-Travel looks like a solution, but is in early stages. Anyone tried this out? What are your experiences?

Any reason why you're not considering Nokia Maps?

Don't forget if you don't use a-gps the lock takes a fair few more minutes.
