Nokia 5230 - View your location and the map

View your location and the map

See your current location on the map, and browse maps of different cities and countries.

Select Menu > Maps and My position.

position-gps.jpg marks your current position, if available. When your device is searching for your position, blinking-myposition.jpg blinks. If your position is not available, maps-position-grey.jpg indicates your last known position.

If only cell ID based positioning is available, a red halo around the positioning icon indicates the general area you might be in. In densely populated areas, the accuracy of the estimate increases, and the red halo is smaller than in lightly populated areas.
