The navigator function works well—this writer tested it in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore—and you can use an easy-mount holder to attach it to the windscreen of your car. The voice guidance comes not with an alien westernised accent but with what seems like Indian voices speaking in English or Hindi and is fairly easy to follow. The maps—supplied by Navteq, the Geographical Information Systems (GIS) company that recently merged with Nokia—are fairly accurate although in some of the NCR areas, like Gurgaon, the details are absent.
As well as navigation, the 6110 does everything else fairly well. Its audio quality is superb and it has a good music player (although the earphones that come with it are ordinary). The message reader facility, which enables you to listen to your text or e-mail messages read out, is a nifty new feature but the software’s encounters with some words and names can be quite hilarious!
All in all, for around Rs 14,500 (plus Rs 390 for a carcharger and Rs 2,070 for the easy mount holder), you get a neat little phone that’s also a guide map.
