The Nokia 6710 Navigator can be used as both fully functional navigational system and cell phone. In-call quality is way above average and our only gripe is that voices tend to be a bit muffled. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean you won´t be able to catch onto what people say even in noisy environment. The battery life is way too important for any device that will be used for navigation and thankfully, the 6710 is a great performer. According to the manufacturer the battery should be able to provide 7hrs of continuous talk time and keep your phone operational for about 19 days in standby. Out tests included using the GPS for 30 minutes, taking about 30 snapshots and several short videos, about 10 minute Internet browsing session and several short talks, all this on a single day. We are happy to report the battery indicator didn’t even change its reading. 

We believe the Nokia 6710 Navigator makes for an excellent phone and decent navigational system. The handset series it belongs to has never been extremely popular, since there are not too many people who need proper navigation on their cell phones. The 6710 however, might make you think about investing in the standalone navigational system. The comprehensive accessory pack is a major advantage, because and you won´t have to fork out for additional things, plus the car stand comes in really handy. Finally, the phone comes with life-long navigation license valid for the region you bought it in and the camera is decent on the overall. The major drawbacks are the lack of proper maps for certain regions, the bulky size that no one will find irresistibly attractive and the necessity to buy extra maps once you´ve left your region.


If you have been thinking about getting yourself a Navigator series handset, but something has prevented you from buying one this far, well, don´t worry, the 6710 is your best option, because the phone is better that its predecessors. Still, take a look at the 6720 Classic that is a candybar sporting smaller display and coming with more affordable price tag. If you are not a Nokia fan, the HTC Cruise is a viable option delivering TomTom-based navigation.

Software version of the reviewed unit: 021.013.
