... thank you! ... will give it a go tomorrow ... actually, may need to find some wifi before tryin to download a shed load of maps ... but I shall hopefully try it sometime this week!

... t'would definitely be good if you could use contact addresses with ovi maps ... seems really silly not to be able to ... I think a number of features were ditched between the demos and the release of the n900 ... I notice in the video demo on the phone it suggests you should be able to navigate away from a video in the media player while it's still playing to get to the multitasking page ... which I certainly can't do on my n900 ... aaah well! ... not complaining too much, I really do love my n900!

in my taskmanager if i have say liquid flow running and i open the taskmanager , liquid flow is still moving around like it was in full screen it looks awesome , taskamanger open with the apps running in the background

i havent tryed it with movies yet , maybe they decided pausing the video when taskmanager was open woould be better so you didnt miss any of the film , program etc :-) if it carried on playing you may misss something important while you flick through the taskmanager :-)

you needed the internet connection to download the maps before the update.

if you download the maps on your pc and transfered it to your phone (see the "step by step" guide mentioned above) you can use the maps offline on your phone.

no internet connection required. just gps.

I have not thought about it this way, you are totally correct. I keep on thinking this is a pda, and it HAS to last at least 1 day to be called a pda, so one plug it in when home at night. That was what I am thinking with the N900. If you compare to a dedicated stand alone gps, you are right, the gps I have barely last 3 - 4 hr when NOT plug in. The bottom line, I can always plug it in the car. I just want to stress the battery and see how it goes - continuous use, no wifi/video/audio, only gps/eCoach - 5 solid hours, and it is called good. From this, if it can cut down on the brightness, say the built-in night mode, you should gain another 30 min or so. PR1.1, nice upgrade, Nokia.

... oooh, liking the brainstorm ideas ... I was just after a simple able to select address destination from contact card (either through maps, or from the contact card) but some of your suggestions sound really nifty!
