    With the Nokia 6230i being a Series 40 phone only capable of Java I
    would be surprised if you will be able to interface GPS to it.

    If you want a phone that can interface with a Bluetooth GPS unit you
    would need to consider a Series 60 phone. Nokia 6600, 6630, 6680, N70
    are some of the Series 60 phones that can do this with additional
    Symbian software. Otherwise you will probably have to get a stand alone
    GPS unit.

    It will depend how hands on you want to become. There is people that
    have it working successfully using only J2ME & bluetooth. Not sure if
    the 6230 complies with the J2ME Location API. If it does it is a bit
    easier. Check the tech docs on the Nokia site.

    For example http://sourceforge.net/projects/gpsmobile/. There are also
    some implementations using the TomTom GPS units. But it will be very
    helpful to have some basic knowledge of J2ME.

    I fully agree otherwise - if you want something "out of the box" for
    Nokia phones you are much better off with a Series 60 or 90 phone.

    have you tried Nav4All?

    Hi there,

    i use Nav4All (www.nav4all.com) on my Nokia 6230i for navigation.
    It's turn-by-turn navigation with voice-instructions (50 languages, 100 voices, and works almost worldwide). Works perfect with my old TomTom bluetooth GPS receiver.

    Best of all: it's free till August 2006, after that there will be a subscription fee of around $2 per month (so no fee per route like Wayfinder ).

    Install via your phone's webbrowser via http://www.nav4all.com/install

    Also check this news article for more info. (sorry it's in swedish).
