The Satnav On the Nokia N95 didn't work, so i sued Nokia through www.moneyclaim.gov.uk After 30 days there was no response from Nokia and the court ordered them to refund me 𧷤....This was my case "Goods "not fit for purpose".Claimant purchased a Nokia N95 mobile phone with GPS satnav. At no stage did the GPS work properly. The Claimant contacted T-mobile(sellers)who informed him that responsibility laid with NokiaUk. Nokia offered many fixes&advice on various software updates and patches &other ways to correct the defect(e.g "assisted GPS"). Many hours (hundreds) were expended over several months followingAdvice but to no avail. In Nov2007 the defendant informed the claimant that nothing further Could be done&the claiment took this as an admission that the product was "not fit for purpose". Prior to purchase the claimant researched the manufacturers specs (nokia.com). The phone was purchased from T-mobile (In-house sales line). TheClaimant made it clear to the salesperson that he only wished to purchase a phone with GPS capabilities. He was assured that the GPS would be effective.During the same call the purchase was made. The GPS proved innefective and the claimant now seeks a refund of the costs incurred with this purchase"
following on from above....The problem was that I found the assisted GPS was fine if you were in the city, but once you got into the countryside, rural areas then it became a problem once again.Assisted GPS is their work-around to poor GPS satnav eqipment.Assisted GPS is NOT "true" satnav. Rather than getting the signal directly from the satellite (as in your cars satnav system), assisted GPS gets its positioning by using ground base stations (Nokia says that it gets it's initial positioning by using these base station and then connects to satellite, I am skeptical of that, I'd love to see their proof of this).I'll tell you what happened to me & my Nokia N95 (maybe it was just MY phone that was faulty??),Without assisted GPS the satnav capabilities of my phone was zero.With Assisted GPS, the satnav at last started to work quite well.But it was a false dawn, because although in the city all worked well, I wanted to see what happened when I was in more remote areas (country lanes & on a mountain). what i found was that the GPS satnav was useless. It would not find the satellite and location. I ran it alongside my cars satnav. Whereby the cars satnav pinpointed my position wherever i was in the countryside, the N95 failed dismally. After all that hope i was back to square 1.There equipment must be flawed? Look at the evidence? Why would they come up with assisted GPS?
The phone needs to improve on its call quality and performance. If you can afford the $779 price tag, let me tell you that this is one of the best phones I have ever laid my hands on. Also when you are buying this phone, make sure you ask for Nokia N94-4. The 4 in the model number relates to 3G capabilities. There are several versions on this phone and you might get the wrong one accidentally.http://www.nokiaphonereview.ne...
